as much as I love Jonsu Salomaa as a singer…

…just about every cover version of the track she did with Nightwish sounds better than the original.

But I never thought I’d get so excited about a technically Russian band doing one. The singer’s name is Alexandra Revontulet (one of us Fennofanatic Russians, LOL).

Their original material doesn’t sound half bad either. And it’s not just about the voice (although b’vec, what a voice!); I have heard similarly powerful voices completely ruined by absence of actual musical merit in the songs.
