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.
