They're one of my favourite bands. :tmb: Mother Earth is their best album, IMO.

I love their Enter album but IMO after The Silent Force, they went downhill. Could've been great, decided to be mediocre.

I'll just get an older album and a new one and compare then. :p

I love/d them, though I'm currently on more of a Nightwish stint. Within Temptation during the Mother Earth and Silent Force eras were my absolute favourite, but as for their newest album...I dislike it. A few good songs, but otherwise deeply, deeply mediocre.

Try Mother Earth then, Sharon uses her voice to her full extent there (which doesn't happen in the latest album). The Enter album can be a bit of hit and miss since it's not at all similar to their newer stuff, it's more gothic metal. Pearls of Light is a beautiful song though.

Wasn't there already a WT thread? *shrugs*

Regardless, I really like them. They are like Evanescence, but with ability, talent and good music, and an attractive female lead.

"Ice Queen" is my favourite song.

"It's The Fear" is their best song, followed by "Angels", "Stand My Ground" and "Memories".

Can't stand 'em. Especially that 'Ice Queen' song...ugh, friggin' annoying. The lead singer's cat screechy blackboard-scratching voice is enough to make my ears bleed. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/icons/icon13.gif

I like some of their songs a lot ("Memories" comes to mind), but her voice has a certain annoying, high-pitched sound at times.

Well yeah her singing style isn't anything like what you'd normally hear on your average pop song.. they are different styles after all so I can see how that could annoy someone who isn't used to it, I guess you really need to appreciate the vocal technique in it to truly love it for what it is, awesome singing :p prefer other voices though. But if you think that's high pitched... don't listen to Hyubris :p

Meh -----> Within Temptation

I'll agree with this though;

The lead singer's cat screechy blackboard-scratching voice is enough to make my ears bleed. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/icons/icon13.gif

If I want to listen to some loon howl incessantly for an hour or so, I'll pop into town on a Thursday.........when the crazies surface :pi:

It's not just the pitch, it's that at moments she sounds (to me) like she's attempting opera vocals and not quite succeeding. Like singing in falsetto or something. I don't know much about singing technique and she most certainly can sing much better than average, but I like her voice more in the natural range.

Anyway, if Within Temptation held a concert somewhere near me, I'd go.

I've only heard a few of their songs. I really like Mother Earth, but I listened to a few others on YouTube and had to stop because her voice was too high for me to bear. It was fine in Mother Earth, though.

Well if you'd rather listen to Britney Spears, be my guest. ;)

I like her high pitch though, there's someting impressive about how high she can go. Sharon is much more talented than 80% of those pink jumpy pop stars.

I really like them.
I agree that their newest album wasn't the best, but I don't dislike it and I quite like some of the new songs.

Dani, definitely try listening to "Mother Earth" and "Enter".

BTW, I generally prefer Sharon's voice when she's normally singing, but I don't mind the higher notes.

Within Temptation! :jmp:

Absolutely love them. My favourite songs are pretty much all the songs on Mother Earth [especially The Promise], and I love the songs 'Hand of Sorrow' and 'Our Solemn Hour'. I'm not a huge fan of their other album 'The Silent Force' though.
