Within Temptation - An Acoustic Night At The Theatre

None of their emotional poignancy gets lost in translation...

The successor to last year’s sterling ‘Black Symphony’ effort, this release could so easily have been called ‘Another Attempt To Wring Money From John Q Punter Without Actually Having To Write Any New Material’, but of course we’d never be so uncharitable as to suggest such a thing. Fundamentally this is how Within Temptation would sound when experienced during a power cut and the results are, unsurprisingly for a band of such technical proficiency, most effective. The dynamics of ‘What Have You Done’ and ‘Frozen’ may be somewhat removed from their original state but none of their emotional poignancy gets lost in translation.
