Some songs on his second solo album by the former Nightwish songstress are tougher than usual, but all in all, the fans get what they expect: classy, epic compositions hovering between musical and dark Hard Rock.

This is the second regular solo album by the former Nightwish songstress, and of course it contains the bombast (think A.L. Webber here) and darker, modern Hard Rock we expect from Tarja. But this time, the Finn has added some considerable roughness to some of her songs: check out chunky "In for a kill", or cheeky (at least, for her, that is) "Little lies". Epic and extreme long "Crimson deep" features the classic Black Sabbath tempo and is the perfect means for the lady to strut her vocal stuff - Tarja really has a great musical or even classical soprano voice. After this moving experience, you’ll get some lighter material to digest with peppy, Pop-py "Until my last breath". The album is very multi-faceted for the genre, last but not least also due to guest appearances by Joe Satriani, Phil Labonte (All That Remains), and the a capella combo Van Canto, among others.

The third studio album from Finnish metal star, What Lies Beneath keeps Tarja's signature symphonic operatic style whilst mixing in a newer heavier version. I think this is one of my favourite albums Tarja has put out to us. I recommend this album!!
