Best Nightwish Albums


The Top Ten

1 Oceanborn

This really is the best album. Nightwish had found their style and the pure music and heavenly singing by Tarja flourishes all the way. It is a treasure of this genre and a gold mine of best songs and music. It is also real and pure the most noble format. Love it!

Oceanborn is the second album of Finnish symphonic metal band Nightwish.

Highlights: Sacrament of Wilderness, Passion and the Opera, Walking in the Air, Sleeping Sun - TheBerserker

True Nightwish fans know this is the best album. So sorry for those who don't listen to this and just listen to newer albums.

The vocals on this album are outstanding. - Caleb9000

I listened to the whole album on YouTube and loved it! A great album from start to finish. And it's one of the last albums with Tarja.

The final album featuring Tarja is my favorite.

Once is the fifth studio album by Finnish symphonic metal band Nightwish.

Highlights: Nemo, Wish I Had An Angel, The Siren - TheBerserker

It is a minefield of fantastic songs and the best of Nightwish

Every song is great!
Many songs of different symphonic metal styles expressed in this album.
Some catchy, some beautiful and melodic, most are both!

4 Imaginaerum

Why is this not number one? I get it, some didn't like Anette, but the written music is on a completely new level for this band. This one takes you on a Journey you will never forget! Best work since Oceanborn.

My Favorite and in my opinion the most innovative and immersive release from Nightwish. This album takes you on an epic journey just as the title insinuates. Amazing Brilliance followed closely by Oceanborn.

A great album
Absoutely best nightwish album

5 Endless Forms Most Beautiful

I normally don't like Power Metal but the way Floor Jansen sings the songs written by Tuomas just causes me to be so amazed!

So well produced and Floor's voice is so wide ranging. Great concept album with symphonic metal riffs.

Until this came out it would have been once for me. But this is just slightly better

6 Wishmaster

Master of albums. Sad it is so underrated.

Wishmaster is the third album of Finnish symphonic metal band Nightwish.

Highlights: The Kinslayer, Deep Silent Complete, Come Cover Me - TheBerserker

7 Century Child

Century Child is the fourth studio album of Finnish symphonic metal band Nightwish.

Highlights: End of All Hope, Bless The Child, Phantom of the Opera, Ever Dream - TheBerserker

Not only the best album by Nightwish... propably the best album of the 21st Century so far... all 10 tracks are masterfully composed, performed and written, there are absolutely no low point, no fillers. Furthermore, it was this album on which Nightwish created their distinctive sound they are known for nowadays. - Martin_Canine

8 Angels Fall First

This album is so underrated. People just don't listen to it. It is awesome!

Angels Fall First is the debut album of Finnish symphonic metal band Nightwish.

Highlights: Elvenpath, The Carpenter, Beauty and the Beast - TheBerserker

9 Over the Hills & Far Away
10 Showtime, Storytime

A shining new era of Nightwish, introducing a fantastic new vocalist that has bought a new sound to the band and flawlessly powers through every song of every previous vocalists eras

This album just makes me sing along with Floor and dance to Nightwish's music.
