Tarja's solo career is off to a great start, with My Winter Storm boosting it along quite aways.
When I first heard of this CD after the Nightwish break-up, I was thinking it was going to be just a vocal album, with muted instruments in the background, or maybe a pop-ish album, like so many other female vocalists have done when going solo.
But instead, Tarja brought the Nightwish sound with her. Electric guitar solos, symphonic tunes, and large choruses with background vocals all accompanied her voice very well, as they had done with her in Nightwish.
