Biography

There's a lot more to a record than simple notes, lyrics, and sounds. An impactful piece of music always remains wrapped in emotion. Love, hate, sadness, and joy resound at the greatest decibel imaginable. At the end of the day, a song's feeling will carry on as long as the melody will—and just as loudly.
HIM holds that philosophy in the highest regard on its eighth ... Read more in Amazon's HIM Store

BBC Review

Uneasy Listening Vol. 1; not the greatest of album titles, is it? An album of everyone's favourite songs by happy goth-metallers HIM reworked; but in what way? New-rave versions of their music or how about a hip-hop version of 'In Joy and Sorrow'? Turns out HIM have gone all romantic on us and have unleashed a loved up album of their songs re-worked to a much softer effect

Ville Valo has claimed this is an album for the girls!and he's not wrong. You can imagine a dejected she-Goth wistfully staring out of her window at the rain pining for her he-Goth while Uneasy Listening Vol. 1 plays.

It is fair to say that some of the songs hit the mark. 'Close To The Flame' throws up images of, dare I say it, Jeff Buckley and 'Gone With The Sin' is a majestic piece of music, lush with strings and vocals at their most sensitive all understated and slight.

The problem is that Uneasy Listening sometimes is exactly that. Too often does HIM try to re-work a song that did not need to be re-worked and some songs just come across as a joke. The vocals on 'It's On All Tears' are painful to listen to: much more than uneasy with Ville's voice pitching all over the place above music which sounds like Hank Marvin and The Shadows. Meanwhile 'When Love and Death Embrace' is three minutes fifty of AOR !which should strike fear into the heart of any music fan.

The big question is: who is this album for? HIM fans will already have much of these re-workings on special edition singles and those wanting to get into HIM should steer clear and aim for their earlier stuff such as Razorblade Romance or pick up And Love Said No. Let's just hope the 'metal' Volume 2 is not quite so uneasy on the ears. --Ben Ashmore

Format: Audio CD
i was scared about this album, that they would turn the much loved songs in to.. wel dance tracks, but once i bought it, all that was gone. this is an amazing album, the songs still have the same foundations, but have so much more built up on it. theres much more keyboards, and orchestoral pieces, espesilly on in joy and sorrow and salt in our wounds (the two best songs) make them astonishingly epic. the acoustic versions allows villes voice to come through clearer, and are more intmimate, there is one odd one out however, gone with the sin, wich is entirly violin based. that is no reason not to own this though, if you love him, you need this, if your intreaged by him, go and buy love metal then buy this.

If, like me, you own all of HIM's albums to date then you will recognise the title of every song on here. However, you immediatly notice a difference in each song from the original, no matter how sublte, sometimes you can't always put your finger on what is different but you can tell that it is. That is the beauty of the album, all recognisable titles yet the songs have been changed slightly.

The only downside to this album is that these songs are no longer rareities and not so much of a novelty to have in your music collection.

I am a HUGE HIM fan, and was at best deflated when I listened to this album. I would say BUY IT if you, like me, wish to own all of their music and want to judge this album for yourself, but it is not as good as I hoped that it would be. Some tracks are ok, but the Buried Alive By Love acoustic version is pants. I hate to say this! (but it is true!)

Sweet 666 kisses
