Killigrew - Chillstep Artist 07 февраля 2014 года в 15:14 505
Tuomas, without you I would never even have touched a piano. Now I have released 4 albums and music is my life. I have a little bit of Nightwish deep down in every song of mine. You are a true inspiration, I hope to meet you one day. This song was magnificent <3

Spot on mate. Still, Toumas' wife beautiful voice rips your soul apart aswell while enjoying this album!
Oxymoron 05 октября 2016 года в 12:11
Oh yes, normally I don't have to cry when watching videos. Even the most tearjerking movies leave me cold, and instead pieces like this and mostly children's movies manage to bring out the tears. I don't know why that is, but I suppose the reason for this is explained in this very song's lyrics "To be rich is to still remember
To treasure your first dime
To have a chance to say farewell ... To be rich is to seek
To relive the memory" You know, when I am old, I would love to be like Don Rosa, looking back at my lifework with a smile and enjoying every smile it brought and still brings. And like Tuomas I would like to have the opportunity to bring my childhood memories back to life like this. This song and video just hits every spot there is to hit for me.
MioRaem 17 апреля 2014 года в 20:39 234
I own the graphic novel as well and I gotta say Tuomas is right. It is beyond fantastic. This is different from every single other Disney comic. In fact, forget what you thought you knew about Disney comics, about comics in general. This isn't just ' a comic' for kids and nerds. Don Rosa created something special there. You gotta realize that he has drawn the entire life of Uncle Scrooge, mixing places and persons of our real world with the Disney fiction on such a high level it is unimaginable. If you ever wondered, why the Beagle Boys became Scrooge's arch enemies, how Ducktown came to be, who his parents and siblings were, what his childhood and youth was like, when and where he earned his first million, and the things he did, discovered and experienced, the countless people he met and places he saw long before Donald Duck was even born, it is all in there. It's no comic, it's a chronicle. And a terribly sad one, a tale of countless hardships and especially losses. And Tuomas music catches that perfectly. After you read this, Mickey Mouse will apear boring and pale to you compared to Scrooge. It will change your point of view on practically everything you thought you knew about the character who is so much more than just a very rich duck.

Amanda E. 07 апреля 2018 года в 08:51
I'm from Sweden and i don't see this passion for cartoon characters here (or the stories behind them), people are very cynical and boring in that sense. However many people here love their norse mythology and folklore, but not anything that can be perceived as "childlike" or cartoons, in other words. Only nerdy people with Asperger's seem to appreciate this here (uhm, that includes me). Oh well, their loss.
Jógvan Thomsen 21 ноября 2017 года в 01:43
It is possibly the imaginative nature of the Scandinavians, compared to the conservative Britts and Yanks, that are the reasin for this cultural difference. After all, it is Scandinavia and Germany that are the birthplace for most of the Fairy Tales, Sagas and Legends that are commonplace in most Comic Novel and Movie Franchise Universes today.
I am brought up on Donald Duck Comics and especially the Don Rosa and Carl Barks ones. They are masterpieces, each and every one of them. The storylines are incredible, even for adults. The pictures are telling several stories on their own and the artwork is amazing.
If you have never read these, I can strongly recommend their combined Collective Works. I guarantee you will not be dissapointed.
jezkn 19 апреля 2014 года в 15:42
+Flingship373 Actually you have explained that really well and quite movingly for those of us over here UK and US) who are much more cynical about cartoon characters - not seeing the real people they represent.  It is a cultural thing - and we are probably the poorer for it over here (and take ourselves far too seriously). I have certainly had my eyes opened by reading the thousands (literally) of comments on this upload.and the passions aroused !  
jezkn 19 апреля 2014 года в 15:25
+Flingship373 Yes - great orchestration from  Pip and the London choir he used too. I just  hope he gets the audience reaction over here for it - but I suspect he'll be struggling sadly. (and in the  USA too  even though they 'hatched' Donald from a Disney egg over there!)

LordTchernobog 26 февраля 2014 года в 15:46 142
Hey, Disney, do you hear that? It's a sign for a movie based on *Life And Times Of Scrooge*, using traditional animation, not that CGI Pixar/Dreamworks wannabe you tries, but failed many times (excluding some surprisingly good movies, like Wreck-it Ralph, Tangled).
It's time for a decent hand drawn animated movie, huh?
The Dark One 25 декабря 2018 года в 02:38

Federico Tauceri 24 ноября 2018 года в 17:10
A film could not represent all the scenes of the Life and Times of Scrooge. A TV series by Netflix or Amazon would be better, because I think it would be amazing to have REAL actors.
LordTchernobog 01 июня 2018 года в 20:45

Stunning. I've been a Nightwish diehard for ages, and this is absolutely Tuomas, brilliant, BRILLIANT composing. The ladies voices are nothing short of angelic. Please, if I go to Heaven, let Tuomas be the one that composed the music I hear when I get there. He is an un-appreciated genius living in his own time.

"To be rich is to still remember
To treasure your first dime
To have a chance to say farewell

Story of your life
Time of solitude and strife
Freedom of an open road
Hope, and many miles to go
Promises to keep
Countless goldfields to reap
To be rich is to seek
To relive the memory

Far-off lands quests of old
Self respect true grit
Never cared what a fortune might buy
To seek is to be rich

Story of your life
Time of solitude and strife
Freedom of an open road
Hope, and many miles to go
Promises to keep
Countless goldfields to reap
To be rich is to seek
To relive the memory

All the strangers on your path
Crossroads, the letters from home
The coolingembers of a Yuletide hearth
All the songs of wilderness
The truth in which you roamed
Now your lost Rosebud has brought you back home

Story of your life
Time of solitude and strife
Freedom of an open road
Hope, and many miles to go
Promises to keep
Countless goldfields to reap
To be rich is to seek
To relive the memory”

The singer, Johanna Kurkela, is Tuomas' current girlfriend. I know I'm crushing all the female's fans of Nightwish dreams by telling you this.

Nah... my love for Tuomas goes much deeper than a romantic love. I'm in love with his lyrics and the beauty he creates. I'm glad his wife shares that vision!

Tuomas Holopainen's music never fails to impress me, there is so much personality and sincere emotions in it. Is it metal song, a ballad or a soundtrack Tuomas's music is beautiful, truthful and wonderful, I can only compare this music with life itself, it's like the energy of life running through human veins 
BoUrnNe26 26 февраля 2014 года в 19:48
On another note, I definitely agree with you about Tuomas' music in general.  I find myself having this song in my head all the time now.  Really wish I could sit and have a beer or two with the guy.
Edward Richtofen 26 февраля 2014 года в 06:59
Definitely, definitely, definitely far from a metal song. 
BoUrnNe26 25 февраля 2014 года в 22:21
+rstrosah  I haven't read the comic either but my guess is because it is one of his favorite stories as a kid and wanted to write music that to him, paid tribute to the story and is his way of showing his appreciation and respect to it.
rstrosah 24 февраля 2014 года в 19:25
+BoUrnNe26 Yeah… I personally went from incredulity to amazement. I may have to get the comic just to see why it deserves this epicness…
BoUrnNe26 22 февраля 2014 года в 02:53
Honestly, when I saw the news of this album on Nightwish's website, I wasn't sure what to make of it.  After watching this video, I now want to get the album.  Lol

I only exclusively listen to power/death metal and was recommended by a friend to listen to this. The first few seconds I was like "NOPE!!". I eventually put my morals of what I thought was good music aside and started with the beginning of this album and listened the entire way to the end. Let me tell you, this just blew me away!!! I never thought that something like this would captivate me and excite me this much. One of my all time favorite albums of all time, Not Kidding!!! And I haven't even read the book, can't wait to experience the adventure the way it was intended.

Grim Reaper 13 апреля 2015 года в 11:33
+dimetonn Tuomas at least said that he creates his songs from stuff that are really important or bother him very much and that the making of a song is not  a one way process. The song from the demo changes a lot until it becomes the final form that we fans hear.In a interview he said " I gues we try to create music that we ourselves ( the Nightwish band ) wanted to lisen to but there was nothing similar on the market.

Да, красиво... а еще впечатляет, что человек создает что - то прекрасное из своего детского впечатления, своего таланта и желания. Несмотря ни на что - что не формат, без оглядки на то, что не поймут, не примут. Просто захотел - и создал, задействовал массу людей, талантов, закрутил всё вокруг своего стремления что - то создать. Круто.

...... There is NOTHING like this being composed in the U.K. or U.S. or of this quality in a 'Classical (Symphonic) Rock' genre. We seem to have totally lost the ability or inspiration (or the plot), in this country (UK) - or maybe even the market, which is tragic, at the moment !! You Finnish have taken centre stage and have cornered the market - or atleast Tuomas has. GOOD ON YA oh my Finnish friends !! (it keeps my passion for music alive for starters !!).

+Hack Dandy I don't understand your point. Do you? Or have you even understood mine? Kip Whoever's compositions has nothing to do with it (and he hasn't written a symphony).. His stuff is not in this genre nor indeed remotely related to it. I'm no snob - I listen to anything. But I do appreciate quality, ORIGINALITY and something truly inspirational when I hear it. If you read the comments on this page, which are popping up every few hours (there are 1200 of them already in TWO months !!!!), you can't fail to see the excitement, pleasure and inspiration this Holopainen masterpiece has brought to people across the world. And it's fully deserved.
Hack Dandy 16 марта 2014 года в 23:18
If you are really a snob about music - then check out Kip Winger's symphony. No it isn't rock, but it is composed in the US.

Don't know about you, but I'm waking up to that amazing structured lead guitar solo (at 5.14) every day. It's constantly on my brain - like an ear worm, I keep humming it (and doing guitar actions to match !!). I love every nuance, every phrase. It's becoming one of my all time favourties. It;s NOT about numbers of notes and flash playing. Its about economy of notes, the RIGHT notes, the right build, the right (fuzz) sound, the way he bends the notes (as at 5.06 and 5.22), and that devastating use of controlled feedback (as at 4.40 - WOW !!). Also that wondrous bit at 5.01- where it goes into a chunky slap rhythm, but then stops after two bars (I could have listen to a track of that just on its own!!). And the way the strings behind it echo the rhythm of the guitar as a 5.14..And the way he uses the full, amazing range of the  instrument, soaring up to the heights at 5.30 - yet plumbing the depths at 4.20 where it blends gorgeously with Joanna's voice. Sheer genius (yet with restraint).
It's so exhilerating, it leaves me breathless and I can't get it out of my head.
Does anybody know a cure?

+Pitwulf I used metalhead in answer to Edwin's comment because he said he was one. In no way did I mean to put a label on Metalheads. There are many different types of 'Metal heads' (and they don't all agree!).
 You will no doubt be looking forward to the Uilleann pipes player Tuomas is bringing into Nightwish!
I second your request to find 'music similar to this'. i haven't found any ... yet (well not of this quality).
Pitwulf 18 марта 2014 года в 16:09
+jezkn Why do you say a Metalhead in your second sentence? I'm pretty sure metalheads in general pay more attention to the music than the singing compared to most normal "plebs" who only pay attention to the singing or to the catchiness of a song,
In any case it is always nice to see an (musically) intelligent comment. I also think this is wonderful music. I am as fond of music like this (also artists like enya, loreena mckennit, sarah mclauchlin, tori amos) as I am of celtic music and metal.
The solo follows a little bit too much the vocal melody I think but still very nice. If anyone knows music similar to this let me know :)
jezkn 17 марта 2014 года в 19:33
+Edwin Mwinne I SO appreciate your comment. It is GREAT that a Metalhead can say this. Tuomas is a metalhead of course (turned on by seeing Metallica in US when a teenager). That's why he formed Nightwish. BUT also very skilled at orchestrating and classically savvy. But this is not Metal - and some 'metalheads' don't like it because it's not heavy enough (hence the dislikes), BUT Tuomas is doing what few others are doing (or can do) - and that is bridging the gap between classical (orchestral) sound and a Rock genre (yes - and Metal too). People like you get that. From the other side classical fans are getting it too (although many ARE snobs - it's true). But Tuomas has taken the classical/symphonic/rock/metal genre into new territory with this masterpiece and it will generate much broader appeal as a result - hence the phenomenal response on these pages'.. That's why it's so brilliant. And the detail matters !
Edwin Mwinne 17 марта 2014 года в 18:55
after all there is hope in humanity .... sometimes I wonder if people really listen the music and not just the vocalist and then... this comment.... I am so agree with your comment and gald that people really care for this details... the whole song and structure is amazing and if this song is just a taste just imagine what kind of masterpiece there is in this album-soundtrack
I am a metalhead... is in my veins but this is amazing ...thanks Tuomas for that

To be honest, I didn't expect much out of a Tuomas Holopainen solo album, because I didn't know at all what to expect. But damn, he really never disappoints when it comes to music. This is amazing.

I adore the guitar solo and the way it builds and then  cuts back to the bassoon, then choral section at 5.37. Its brilliantly constructed.
Tell you what - there's been some money spent on this arrangement. It's lavish !!

Two of the greatest artists of all time joined. The ONLY CD I own still. Don Rosa made Scrooge Epic, what Barks only laid out in scratch. It is wonderful to read and tuomas' soundtrack does it all the justice it deserves.

The beginning of the song reminds me of the song that plays in Burmecia in Final Fantasy IX, which is a good thing in my opinion!

+YouCursed CursedYou
Same with me. I don't know why everyone is so concerned about the singers anyway? Luckily Nightwish is still a BAND and not a singer with accidentally the same musicians playing the singers songs all the time.
And if there is any "Head" of the band, in a way that it is a unreplaceable person, it is Tuomas in my opinion! Nightwish without Tarja, anette, floor, whoever is still Nightwish. Nightwish without Tuomas is only Tarja, Anette or floor with companions. Isn't he the composer of nearly all the songs? and doesn't he also created most of the lyrics? I don't want to derogate the other members of Nightwish. all of them are great musicians and artists. But Tuomas is THE artist in the group. My opinion. ;)

The Donald Duck commics are immensly popular in Norway and among the most popular comics are the ones done by Don Rosa (check him out, the attention to detail is stunning) and his biggest work is "The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck" which is the entire life of Scrooge, from when he was a poor little lad in Scottland to when he is old, gray and have seen all of the world.
Seeing that Toumas is doing this fills me with some happiness I havent had since I was a kid./fanboizm

i would just once like to look at a video on this site, about Tuomas or Nightwish, that doesn't include so called "fans" whining and crying about SOMETHING. If you dont like the music, don't listen. if you don't like a singer, don't listen. i personally, love Tarja, Anette and Floor. And now Johanna. Each is interesting and dynamic in very unique ways. i also would have trouble singling out a song that Tuomas wrote that i don't love. So do the rest of us a favor that enjoy this band and writer in all the available aspects...SHUT THE FUCK UP!

Comic writers are simply not recognized enough. I've always read Uncle Donald, til today, I'm with the Life of Scrooge in my hands now, and have been listening to Nightwish for a while, and I'm surprised. Tuomas gave a value to Don Rosa that is simply out of the norm. He gave to Don an out of norm happiness, for valuing so much that. Even a hole album was made, just for his work.
Show him drawing is extraordinary, I always wanted to see this.
It's just a pity that Carl Barks is not here anymore to enjoy this, I'm absolutely sure he would have loved it. Thanks Tuomas, that's really beautiful, and as an assiduous reader, you've done amazing, I can really feel Scrooge in each of his steps. :)

Don Rosa's art and this music by Holopainen. It's just full of emotions and dreams. Holopainen & Rosa, that is just so good. So damn good.
