5.0 out of 5 stars The Wowmus 11 April 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
After hearing 'In The Shadows' I thought id take the risk of buying the album, dead letters. I was expecting a couple of decent tracks and the rest to be below par. I couldn't have been more wrong. Every time you put the album on, it gets better and better and better. Tracks to look out for are: Time to burn, Not like the others girls, funeral song and of course In the shadows. Trust me, this album will not disappoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Rasmus, the next big thing from Finland 5 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
The Rasmus are the next best export, after HIM from Finland. But don't get me wrong, the Rasmus aren't something new...they've been around for a while now. Their debut album has to be their best yet, and stands a good chance of helping them break the uk..finally...they deserve it.
Dead letters is filled with delicious vocals, and deep guitar groves all helping to create a smooth, slightly gothic sound.
This album is a must for anyone who appreciates good music.

5.0 out of 5 stars 10 minutes 12 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
thats how long it took me to decide to buy this album!
i went into HMV last night looking for an album by Fuel and spent a good 10 minutes looking. After not finding it, i realised that what i was listening to was in fact extremely good, so despite having never heard of the band before, and having still only heard about 3 tracks, i thougt 'why not?' and bought it. iv had it on non-stop since, its fantastic!!
First day of my life is brilliant, somewhere between lostprophets and A, and Time to Burn is also fantastic, with clear unfluences from Bon Jovi.
Whilst the mix of apparent influences throughout the album seems quite diverse, it comes off brilliantly and sounds fantastic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive Album Unheralded in UK so far 13 Oct 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I came across a couple of the singles from this album on German MTV and was impressed by the combination of strong melodies and heavy guitar riffs.
The album kicks off with the two strongest tracks, but there isn't really a duff song on the album. The lead singer has a very strong voice and the band sound like a very tight unit.

5.0 out of 5 stars buy it.....or it's your loss 20 July 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Buy this. It's as simple as that. Don't start thinking of reasons not to, just buy it. Pronto.
Track 1 First day of my life: Great track, great one to listen to when you want to be alone, just like he sings 'wanna be alone, just for a while unknown'. It kinda introduces you to the album, and although the chorus is quite fast, the verses are serene and calm in a melodic way.
Track 2 In the shadows: five star track - anyone thinking of buying this cd should have heard this - and if you havn't, go and listen to it now on their website.
Track 3 Still standing: Good track, it starts slow but builds up - lauri's voice sounds espeicially nice at the beginning.
Track 4 In my life: fast song very good. It's about taking control of your life, and is the least formulaic of all the songs on the album - the rhthym changes towards the end. great lyrics at the beginning.
Track 5 Time to burn: Quite a dark track, about changing your life so much that you cannot go back, great song, and my personal favourite.
Track 6 Guilty: odds are that you have probably heard this as well - its like an apology song. If you are listening to it on headphones then the vocals switch from earphone to earphone, which is v. nice.
Track 7 Not like the other girls: The most different song on the album, a really beautiful song - the most memorable after your first listen. Really melodic and epic in a way. It starts slowly with a one minute intro and lasts seven minutes, but still doesn't drag on.
Track 8 The one i love: A very dark song, with dark lyrics 'this bed has become my coffin'. One of my favourites.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! 26 May 2004
Format:Audio CD
This fantastic 5th album of the Finnish rock group “The Rasmus” is described best with these words: energetic, powerful, melodic & melancholic.
”First day of my life” convinces with hard guitar riffs and a great melody.
“In the shadows” is fantastic rock with a melody that will never leave your head once you’ve heard it.
“Still standing” is one of my personal favourites. It’s a wonderful rock ballad that really goes to your heart thanks to singer Lauri’s beautiful voice.
“In my life” is the most powerful song on “Dead Letters”.
“Time to burn” is slower, hard guitar riffs and again Lauri’s voice make it a really good song.
“Guilty” is another favourite of mine, a perfect, well-balanced rock masterpiece with a striking melody.
“Not like the other girls” is again slower and contains some beautiful guitar solos. You’ll carry it in your heart straight away!
“The one I love” is another great rock song.
“Back in the picture” really catches you and wants you to join in the singing.
“Funeral song” is the most emotional and also the darkest song on Dead Letters. Lauri is singing about his ex-girlfriend and describes how he dies in his dreams with his voice full of soaring beauty and melancholy. On this album version of FS, there is only very little background and no drums.
"F-f-f-falling", which was a major hit single in Finland in 2001, is rock-pop at its very best with a catchy refrain!
”If you ever” is more rock again and tells you a good deal about friends. A wonderful song!

5.0 out of 5 stars Out of the ordinary
One of the few bands of the noughties that I found original. The album is haunting and I catch myself humming the tunes long after I have finished listening to the music

2.0 out of 5 stars Drab, primitive and with cliches galore
While there is undoubtedly far worse music than this out there, Dead Letters is rock music of a low standard. It's primitive, with the annoyance factor being high. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Weak, plodding, cliched.
I'm a big fan of Finnish Goth-metal - but I don't like this. I was hoping to like it and expected to like it, after being recommended this by another fan of similar music. Read more
