Carnival of Rust topped the Finnish charts a week after its release and the album went gold within three! Poets of the Fall are a superb and totally underrated rock band and deserve worldwide recognition. The title track is superb as are Locking up the sun (the next single), Gravity, Roses and the totally addictive Maybe tomorrow is a better day. There are no 'filler' tracks on this or their excellent debut album, Signs of Life.

Marko has a wonderful voice that lifts you up and takes you on an incredible journey through the album.

I discovered Poets of the Fall at a Finnish rock festival this summer and can honestly say their albums have not left my cd player! Lets hope winning the MTV award for best Finnish band will skyrocket their music and hopefully they will play live one day in the UK.

Poets of the fall are a relatively unknown group. Ask any of your friends and i would be surprised if any more than a couple of them actually knew of this group. This lack of public recognition is a travesty, as they have done some incredible music and this second album simply highlights their skills.

I really don't want to go through all the songs listing the high's of them, as it will take me ages and you will get bored! However, one or two quick points about my favourites:

The opening song, Locking Up The Sun is a great opener. Its strong, powerful, a simple underlying message and gets you really 'in the mood' for want of a better phrase! It immediately makes you turn the volume up to max on your mp3 player!

Delicious is another fantastic song, it really has a 'delicious' quality, the music is strong and vibrant and for me, the lyrics seem quite clever.

All The Way/4 U is such a lovely melody. Its the sort of heart felt message every guy wants to tell the girl he loves; reassuring, deep and tender. The tune is simple and emotive. You can really feel it.

All in all, Poets Of The Fall are one of my favourite groups, so i am biased. However, i really feel they have something for everyone and can only hope that in time, they get a much wider ranging recognition.

It almost goes without saying that bands like Poets of the Fall are few and far between, and albums like Carnival of Rust are also hard to come by. It's the kind of album you'll have on loop for days whilst its songs slowly conquer your most played lists.

Signs of Life was a hard act to follow but Carnival of Rust stands in its own right as an excellent body of work. As usual Poets of the Fall have produced lyrics that are heartfelt, powerful and catchy. There is a variety of songs, "Roses" is softer and uplifting whereas "Locking Up The Sun" is darker - both of which I love. Carnival of Rust is an album that is enjoyable from beginning to end, no skipping required. Each song is unique and interesting with a story to draw upon.

I think it's a real shame that this band seem to be virtually unheard of in the UK as they are deserving of far more credit for their work. I'd highly recommend this album and the rest - they don't disappoint and are worth every penny.

Carnival of rust is another album which is populated by great tracks from start to finish, it starts out well with Fire and soon comes to the excellent carnival of rust after which the album was titled, and it doesn't slow down there, it keeps up the high quality of fine tracks all the way to the end, a pleasure to listen too from start to finish.

Even the filler tracks are good which is rare, once again a solid example of a band largely unknown you will find this album pleasant surprise and nice break from the plethora of the poor quality albums we see today, this entire album has been filled with solid tracks.

I would however recommend signs of life over this, it's just a little better, but this second album is a great album and better than most of what you hear today.

This is beautiful, meaningful music, that is very listenable to, but does not just pander to public opinion. These are musicians who care about their listeners as well as themselves as artists. The title track obviously has an incredible accompanying video, and is a gorgeous and haunting melody. This is the most brooding track, while the rest of the album encompasses so many feelings and moods. There are feisty songs like 'Fire', 'Sorry-Go-Round', 'Gravity' and 'Delicious', there are calm, meditative, upbeat songs like 'King of Fools' and 'Roses' (the latter being one of my favourites, and one that always makes me feel happy, whatever the situation), there are darker, brooding songs like 'Carnival of Rust' and 'Locking Up The Sun', and there are the beautiful, inspirational 'All The Way' and 'Dawn'. Seriously, 'Dawn' is a real tear-jerker. This album is so worth having, whether you're a pop, rock, metal or cinematic music fan. This will please pretty much anyone.
