Re: This is prolly as pop as a metalband can go

Like hell it does. There are bound to be some similarities on the latest album (like the orchestrations on Islands of Light) and the previous one because Tuomas produced them, but if you seriously think this or this sounds much like Nightwish, your understanding of music leaves a lot to be desired....
