2014 solo album from the Nightwish singer. What does Annette Olzon's first solo outing, SHINE, sound like? Not like Nightwish, that's for sure. Neither like Alyson Avenue, the Swedish Rock band she was singing in before she joined Nightwish. Let's put it this way: From the defiant rocker 'Shine' via the mighty power anthems 'Falling' and 'Lies', where Anette makes the most of the enormous range of her beautiful voice, through to the saccharine ballads 'Moving Away' and 'Floating', her debut presents everything a good album should have. SHINE has been produced with the collaboration of some of the most successful teams in rock and pop in Scandinavia: The producer Stefan Orn (songwriter and producer of the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest winning track 'Running Scared'), Johan Glossner and co-produced by Anette Olzon and Johan Kronlund. The album was mixed by Kronlund, Nicklas Flykt and Ronny Lahti (known for his work with Loreen and Roxette).
Whether we can define SHINE as a metal album, rock, pop or pop rock, what would be hard to miss is how strong the songs are and what an extraordinary album it is. It exceptionally masters the borders between melancholy and hope, between fragility and power, because it showcases an artist who doesn't rest on her laurels but heads boldly into the future.
