Same Song Titles Face-Off 4/6

Do any of my readers even remember this? Anyway, after a long break, here is the fourth installment of this series, probably my favourite of all six. Enjoy!

Saturday Inspiration #15

And here it is again. I don't have any more pre-written, which sadly means it will yet again switch to irregularly updating, as the end of the semester approaches. And anyway, mostly music is what's really going on in my head these days.

Nightwish: Endless Forms Most Beautiful

So here it is, my promised review of the new Nightwish album. I have to confess, I wasn't as excited before it as before Imaginaerum, though I was super curious how it would sound, given the new singer and all. (Actually, it's scary to think about how Imaginaerum came out in 2012, when I was still in high school...) The Nightwish fandom in general is kind of unbearable - so much inner drama! At least with Floor, nobody can complain about the singing - or can they?
The review is littered with personal opinions and musings, so beware. Also, freaking long.

Spring stuff on a budget

I kind of have everything in my closet. Obviously not everything I want, but definitely everything I'd need for all kinds of occasions and weathers. And a dozen more skirts. So the one item of clothing I did actually buy this spring while being on a serious budget? You guessed it right, a skirt.
It's an A-line faux leather skirt, around mid-thigh length, from H&M. I actually used my Christmas gift card for it... yeah, I managed to salvage it up until now. I'm that good. I really do love this skirt, especially because - this is the best thing - those are real pockets. And not even small ones, a phone or an iPod easily fits in it. It's just perfect.
I also bought a bunch of beauty stuff, and some face washes (not pictured, because I'm a lazy-ass blogger).

Album Reviews: March

March was a freaking good month regarding new releases. Most notably, the new Nightwish album... which I promise I'm going to write about next week! I just need to listen to the album a few more times, you know. Meanwhile, have a quick recap of other noteworthy releases (well, worthy of my noting, nothing else).

Hey, look who's back with the dumps of not-even-remotely connected aesthetic pictures!

Saturday Inspiration #13

Hey, I'm soon to be back with semi-regular Saturday Inspirations! Especially since this place is in danger of becoming a music blog, hah. This one is short and mostly just the pictures, but I hope to have more time in the coming month. After that it's exam period, but I don't want to think about that, not yet anyway.

Album Reviews: February

Despite my fervent promises, I find it too tedious to do proper long reviews. So, save for the albums I really look forward to/like way too much, I'll just do a monthly recap (sometime during the month after). As it is, my taste in music is still rather varied, but right now I'm in a bit of a melodeath/folk pit.

Spring Playlist II

We've entered the astronomical spring with a solar eclipse, isn't that nice? Here wasn't much of a spectacle, especially since we didn't bother to get anything to view as little as we could have. I kind of forgot about it, even, but it was still noticeable - how the tone of the light changed just ever so slightly, how it was just a little too dark without any clouds to speak of. It was eerie in a very bright way, which made it all the more disconcerting.
I say this calls for a metal sort of spring. (I mean, how appropriate is the Shadows of the Dying Sun cover?) Anyway, to commemorate, here's a playlist (I've done quite some time ago, since this is a thing I do every changing of the seasons), vaguely spring-like for those who appreciate everything from pop-rock to metal. Well, mostly metal still.
