5.0 out of 5 stars Playboys Review, 17 Mar 2008
This review is from: Playboys (Audio CD)
Now if you listened to this album straight after hearing Dead Letters, like me you wouldn't believe it's the same band. Filled with Ska funky trumpet rapping filled music it's completely differnt, but over time it is in a good way. It takes time to adjust to this different sound if it's not used to the sort of genre of music you listen to (especially if you were a fan of Dead Letters or Hide From the Sun which is a more rock gothic sound). However deep down this album has some fun sing along songs such as the opening song 'Playboys', the strange dog sounding 'Sophia' and the anthemic rap along to 'Ice' but even now The Rasmus can perform these songs on stage and do them justic. 'Well Well' has signs of a more rockier darker sounding whereas 'Carousel' is a fun comical song of not being old to get into bars. 'Violence' again is another fun filled rap song and 'Panda' ends the album perfectly with a more calmer almost instrumental sound. The song that definitely stands out on this album to me however is 'Jailer', its acoustic sound calms things down for a few minutes and the lyrics show more depth and meaning and it is the type of song that can easily be transferred onto a modern day Rasmus album. I'm not sure if you'd appreciate an album like this if like I said before you rarely listen to skater genre of music and would rather listen to The Rasmus' lastest two offerings. However if you are open minded and are willing to give this album a chance then I definitely recommend it. Plus many hardcore Rasmus fans love the first three albums just as much as the most recent three, so being lucky to getting the older songs at gigs it shows these first three albums including this one is definitely not forgotten.

I have been a fan of The Rasmus ever since Dead Letters was released and I was so excited and anxious for the release of this album. A few weeks before it was released I heard No Fear and I was in love. The day the album was released I got my copy and for many weeks afterwards it was constantly on repeat. The hard hitting rocky anthems stood out each sounding completely different to the other for very different reasons and it really showed progress in the bands songwriting. From the amazing hooky typical Rasmus song 'Shot', the anthem 'No Fear', the calming campfire song 'Sail Away' right through to the almost metal sounding 'Immortal' The Rasmus really released another brilliant but unfortunately underrated album. Out of all their albums this one definitely defines the band as a powerful live act that really have a passion for music, and they never let the fans down. A definite must have for any music fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Live Letters Review, 17 Mar 2008
Very good DVD and the only official one released from The Rasmus. It was mainly produced and edited by the Baranga Brothers who also directed the majority of the Official Song Videos featuring on this DVD. Look out for the hidden special of the demo of In The Shadows in Rehearsals. Short backstage interviews with the guys making three of their videos and an interview with them talking about Dead Letters and the success it has been. Great live show although the poor sound quality and with it being a festival gig it only lasts about an hour so it definitely doesn't do them justice. Good little DVD though, not much on there but a must have for any hardcore Rasmus fan.
