Dark Passion Play is the sixth studio album by Nightwish, released on 26 September 2007 in Finland, 28 September in Europe and 2 October 2007 in the United States. It is the first album without original vocalist Tarja Turunen, who was dismissed in 2005, as well as the first album involving future member Troy Donockley on uilleann pipes and tin whistle. It is the first of only two albums with vocalist Anette Olzon.
The entire album with record label voiceovers had been leaked on the Internet by 2 August 2007. The full album (without voiceovers) was leaked on 21 September 2007, as a result of several stores in Mexico selling the retail album much prior to the worldwide release date.

Personally this is one of my 3 favorite albums of them, it marked their new era with a new signer Anette. The orchestra score is amazing, and better than the previous album of Once and Imaginaerum. While this album got a lot of controversy, this is indeed a masterpiece.

The collectors version is a must have for all die-hard Nightwish fans, if you dont like Annette, then listen to the Instrumental CD version of the album, its still Nightwish.

The cover is not reliable I guess. I think it is a black vinyl version but images are taken from Dark Blue vinyl version. I have the black version and couldn't find it on discogs so I thinks this is a black version has Dark Blue version in on other page. I really like this album especially the song "Amaranth" and "Master passion play". Ilm listening whole album very often!
