Is it OK if we include a lyric or two on the cover, or there should be just the title and name?

Me feels like buying some CD's!

Britney looks such a better singer than she is,and Apofiss's one looks so smooth, like a newly bought CD we didn't unwrap yet!I see you really are into japanese music,Richard!I confess taking soundtracks of anime and the film "Dolls",I'm totally ignorant!

BTW, wasn't there an authoritary rule about no more sticky threads untill the end of the Summer Competitions?Dictators always act according to their wills :mis: :D!

Dolls is a film by Takeshi Kitano. Plot: Boy A leaves Girl B. B tries to suicide,and she becomes,in a way,almost a child. A decides he cannot leave her. From this moment on, we enter in the surreal plan. The two lovers, acting like vagabonds,but always dressed as japanese nobility, traverse the four seasons of the year. There's no dialogue;A always keeps B tied to him,and it seems she's loosing all her personality.
It's very sad,and Kitano said it was the most violent of his films,including the gansters ones. Here is the official site:http://office-kitano.co.jp/dolls/top.html

Aha...I remember when I was a HIM fan...

The reason Trish Stratus is on the bottom left, is because Lil Kim sings her entrance theme in WWE.

More beautiful covers!

Tombcool, yours is just wonderful,it looks a Fantasy CD!The building ( looks like a Russian one) involved in the mist, created by the moonlight...it seems a feeric garden!And the letters in the cover are the perfect tone,too!Who's Epica,btw?

Chinesedragon,I only think your is perhaps a bit too white,the light effect could be in another place,enhancing her;this way, it kinda hurts a it the eyes,but that's just my personal opinion.Anyway, being WT normally considered a gothic band, you were quite original,choosing light colours for your cover,instead of the more "easy" dark ones!

OMG!!! Nightwish! My favourite band and favourite song by them!!

@Pipolinne, Epica is VERY similar to Nightwish but they mix operatic vocals like ex-singer Tarja Turunen from Nightwish, with male growling, choirs, and orchestral elements. Their songs talk about epic subjects, Facade of Reality is about 9/11. Facade means deception. NICKY you should look into Epica aswell, a lot of Nightwish fans love em. :)

Ooh, glad to hear it. I thought it came across as a little too tame. :jmp:



RE: Epica, are they as mainstream as Nightwish - I mean, could I pick up a copy of one of their albums if I went into the high street music shop or is it more like something I'd need to order if I wanted to get my hands on a copy? Your discussion piqued my interest. :D

Tombcool
26-07-06, 21:21
They aren't as mainstream as Nightwish (they only have two albums), but you can get their CDs anywhere. They formed in 2003 with The Phantom Agony album (start with this one since its their first), and in 2005 they came out with Consign to Oblivion (second album). But it would be cheaper to get it on the internet, like from Amazon. You can get a lot of information from their official site (http://www.epica.nl), and the Wikipedia page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epica_%28band%29). But then again, the music is totally different (like Nightwish), but different.

I like the meaning behind the albums the best, like the first one is about the dangers of organized religions, and the second one is about the destruction of the Mayan empire. :D

:wve:

I've never heard anything about that but i would love to watch it, i think there is nothing that can connect someone more to a song than relating or enjoying the reason and emotion behind the song and lyrics.

Hope you find it.

And this is horrible that i say this but um, whats your first name:confused: I don't think i've ever refered to you other than apofiss...

As S&C is quite popular song (I'm not even sure if it has a video? O.O ..just having a live concert vid) ..there must be a "making of..." also!

As S&C is quite popular song (I'm not even sure if it has a video? O.O ..just having a live concert vid) ..there must be a "making of..." also!

If there is a Video for "Passion" There has to be one for Simple and Clean...well than again Simple and Clean was written in english first, unlike Passion, writen in Japanese first and made in japan with a video with it. I guess it would make less sense to have a video for it if it was in english first and she's a major japanese artist

Another question for ya, Richard :D, what do you think of her american album, because honestly I don't find it anywhere near the level of these two hit singles.

Lol,don't take me wrong,Apofiss, but I believe some japanese songs only work fine as Anime soundtracks. I'm liking quite a lot the dish-washing music, but I'm only listening to it,not actually watching it. The video isn't that motivating :whi:!
