Best Nightwish Albums


The Top Ten

1 Once Once

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

2 Dark Passion Play Dark Passion Play

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

3 Oceanborn Oceanborn

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

Symphonic power metal at its finest and still the best for me but the new album is a close second.

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.

4 Imaginaerum Imaginaerum

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.

5 Endless Forms Most Beautiful 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.

6 Wishmaster 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

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 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 Over the Hills & Far Away
10 End of an Era End of an Era

The Contenders

11 Showtime, Storytime Showtime, Storytime

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