5.0 out of 5 stars Great melodic/death metal album. 15 Nov 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As a newcommer to the death metal scene, I picked up Amorphis: Elegy on a whim, and it was by far one of the best choices I have made, musically. The songs are metal-driven yet somewhat peaceful and melodic. One thing I think is quite amazing is their use of 2 vocalists, one vocalist uses standard deep death metal growls, while the other one has more a Layne Staley (Alice in Chains) type of voice. The instrumental skill of this band is also quite amazing, from the guitars, drums, and harmonious keyboading this CD will blow your mind, it is a must get. If you like Amorphis: Elegy, give In Flames: The Jester Race, Amon Amarth: Once Sent From The Golden Hall, and Opeth: Morningrise a try as well. These are all spectacular bands.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you love melodic metal, you need to own this 8 Feb 2006
By Anthony Lambiris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This disc isn't just another Amorphis album, it's a full listening experience. The whole album is inspired by Finnish folk tales, both lyrically as well as musically. It's been out for a decade now, and I still listen to the disc in it's entirety on a regular basis. This disc will grow and grow on you. You will not have a favorite track, you will fall in love with the entire disc. As far as I'm concerned, the best Amorphis disc ever released.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amorphis > Jesus 8 July 2002
By Raldante McGillis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Every Amorphis album is great, from their early death metal beginings to their newer more progressive rock sound. But if I had to choose my favorite from them, without a doubt I would choose Elegy. Elegy is the first album that Pasi joined the band, bringing the best voice in metal along with him at that. But unlike the follow albums, the band hasn't given up using death vocals all together yet. And the two different types of vocals work extremely well off of each other. Reminicint of Opeth in a way.
The music it self borrows a lot of 70's progressive rock ideals and mixes it with some metal, folk, a little classical, and even some surf music (Cares?). The use of sitar is used very well for instance, gives the atmosphere of the album a very folkish feel.
All in all this is Amorphis' crown jewel. A perfect bridge between Tales From The Thousand Lakes and Tuonela.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amorphis: A genius band 4 Nov 2001
By Amr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Amorphis are masters of death epic metal practically proven in "Tales Of The Thousand Lakes" and "The Karelian Isthmus".
"Elegy" is a totally different album, it reveals the true genius of this band by shifting from death metal to Progressive metal and Art rock. The whole album is wonderful with heavy rythm guitars to keep the metal side, and psychedelic lead guitars and keyboards. The vocals are mainly clean ones but death growls are evident throughout the whole album but the music itself it very psychedelic and progressive. "Better Unborn" is very psychedelic in rythm with middle eastern influenced tunes. "The Orphan" has excellent psychedelic haunting keyboards and is a true example of progressive art rock with all the heaviness and grace of metal rythm guitars; it has also a very progressive rythmic guitar sound in the middle. "Relief" is a skillfull masterpiece of progressive metal with majestic psychedelic keyboards and guitars.
As a whole, this album is a masterpiece and a jewel in the crown of Progressive metal. Amorphis really prove themselves to be fully capable of playing art rock and not only mastering death metal; a really big move in the history of this masterful band.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Band's (and possibly Genre's) Best Album 6 Feb 2005
By Dan Solera - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Following in the footsteps of their previous album, the hybrid Tales From the Thousand Lakes, Amorphis continues to blend staple death-metal fanfare with melodic Scandinavian folklore and melody. With new "clean" singer Pasi Koskinen, the band expands their sound to acoustic guitars, spacey keyboards, and a beautifully clean production.

The opening track (though the weakest, still impressive) is no doubt inspired by Middle-Eastern melodies (a la Therion) with an aggressive touch. "Against Widows" is a gem; Esa Holopainen's harmonizing guitars, changes in pitch and a double-bass rhythm throughout make this a stand-out track among a unanimously impressive selection. "The Orphan" is exceptional: an atmospheric keyboard/guitar intro and not a single grunt in the song's 5-minute run, half of which is instrumental. The album is stunning. Like its predecessor, the album was inspired by the Finnish companion to the Kalevala, the Kanteletar (?).

Even with the new additions and expansions, the album is never soft or mainstream. Powerhouses "Song of the Troubled One" and the instrumental attack of "Relief" keep the death-metal in Amorphis (without, of course, ignoring the amazing sonic keyboard accompaniments). Signs of musical evolution are, no doubt, apparent. The keyboard interludes in "Cares" and the all-acoustic "My Kantele (reprise)" foreshadow the radical shift in sound that Amorphis would undertake in subsequent albums.

As a band whose albums are clearly individual and unique (much like Ulver), Amorphis peaked with Elegy, a perfect union between the power of guitars and the keyboard's sonic edge. An instant classic.
