Product Description

Product Description

Our product to treat is a regular product. There is not the imitation. From Japan by the surface mail because is sent out, take it until arrival as 7-14 day. Thank you for you seeing it.


The Rasmus were already massive rock stars in their native Finland, as well as various other parts of Europe, by the time Dead Letters was finally released in the UK in March 2004. Really, one can't help but wonder what took them so long to get here. Boasting hook-heavy guitars and anthemic lyrics, most of the tracks on Dead Letters sound tailor-made for radios and stadiums, from hit single "In the Shadows" to the urgent "In My Life", which has an epic, fists-in-the-air chorus worthy of later Bon Jovi. Still, those expecting rock in the vein of the Darkness will be disappointed by the overpolished earnestness of Dead Letters--the Rasmus's sound is more akin to a goth INXS than any spandex-clad rock gods. A lot of that could well be down to the production, which is at times too clean and sanitised; several of these tracks would benefit from being just a bit rougher around the edges. Still, those who find HIM too heavy or Evanescence too wet will probably find something to love in the Rasmus. --Robert Burrow

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 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 Please make that 4.5 stars : ) 26 Dec 2005
By Fishy
Format:Audio CD
Please please please for the love of..well everything, do not listen to all these people who say "trust me, the rasmus are rubbish". They lie. Seriously. They tell you that Rasmus fans should go out and find the decent rock bands out there. I have already done that of my own accord, i am a huge fan of Slipknot, My Chemical Romance, Trivium, Metallica and System of a Down etc etc, I love them all, they are v v v v v v good, but does listening to them prove that the Rasmus are rubbish? A big fat NO, i still love them as much as i ever did, and going to see them live just enforced this, it was INCREDIBLE i'm tellin you mate. Seriously, ignore all these critics and magazines and TV like Kerrang (i usually love Kerrang, except for their unfair treatment of this band) when they say that the Rasmus are worthless, they ARE NOT. This is a very good album, In the Shadows is an excellent song, as is Still standing, first day of mylife, if you ever (abonus track) and the funeral song (the video version is much better, got more drums). And i don't know what all these reviewers are going on about when they say that the music has been cleaned up and polished unnaturally by computer or sumthin, cos i'm tellin you, they sound EXACTLY the same live, theyre just a bit louder and have more energy (if they do touch it up, it makes absolutely no differnce so theyre wasting their time and effort!!) Lauri has the same powerful voice, and the guitar and drums sound great. (They also have very sexy accents when they speak, being Finnish and all that lol)
so for goodness sake, tell evryone else to shut up and don't care what they think of you for being a Rasmus fan, they are woth it, and if you ever get the chance, go and see them live because they are the best when it comes to live gigs.
BUY BUY BUY!! and please buy Hide from the Sun and Into too, I have those and theyre excellent. Not sure about the other ones, I need to get them, but apparently theyre good.

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
