Favourite YouTube reactors


Recommended Posts

I'd like to start with a mention of ThiccGeek, my favourite non-professional NW reviewer. He's not a (real or pretend) vocal coach, just a Tarja-era fan who moved away from NW during the Anette era, and only recently rediscovered NW not even knowing that they had a new singer for a couple of years now. His rediscovery of GLS as sung by Floor at Wacken is well worth the listen! He seems like an authentic guy, and his point of view as a reborn fan is interesting.

Edit:

There you go, my favourite fan review of GLS:

I enjoyed the GLS reaction of this "voice teacher". Some nice explanations on Floors voice and techniques that ended with a "Floorgasm" for him 😁

Thanks for the tip, one of the better reactions indeed! It's nice to see an old connoisseur notice Tuomas' progressive (like in prog rock) songwriting. Songs like GLS, Devil & the Deep Dark Ocean, TGSOE and many others lean heavily into the progressive rock/metal influence (key changes, mood changes, long-winded songs with chapters or movements, atypical instruments...)

Another very informative and detailed GLS reaction from this "voice teacher"

Nice one! Her comment was informative, it's not easy to make a fresh and original reaction to a song that's been reacted to death already! 😆

This self-admitted "prog-rock dinosaur" (John Henny) has posted a new reaction, it's The Poet and The Pendulum this time.

And one of my favourites, Chase Carneson, is appraising Human Nature in track order. Tribal will be posted on Saturday.

 I wanted to post this one too .. 😁

Great one indeed, + lot of info and analyses and it looks to me he knows what he is talking about.

🤘

I hope he goes for one of the heavier songs next, he seems more metal-focused than most vocal coaches on YouTube.

Why is it that when these reputable reactors get to TPATP they end up analyzing the lyrics instead of focusing on what they're expert at, the music -- or the singing? I can interpret the lyrics myself and in the end no one else was in Tuomas' shoes when he wrote this song. I mean, Big Brain Singer and Chase Carneson are great reactors and I love their work, but in my opinion they both missed the boat when reacting to this particular song. There was probably much more in terms of artistic choices and technical stuff to talk about that they missed because of this focus on explaining the lyrics or the background of the song (things that most fans are very educated about already). Was it fan pressure to "prepare" to the song and "read up" on the background?

Sorry for the rant! 😋 I still love you two fine reactors!
