5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant- brings back memories galore!
Well worth buying this, if you are a dedicated In Flames fan, and collector. A brilliant song and this format contains the famous video clip for the song. Do not forget that "Trigger's" video clip is the first part of a unit of two interconnecting clips. Trigger sees the In Flames perform on stage with fellow Goteborg band Soilwork "mocking" them from the audience...

2.0 out of 5 stars Awful
As their second single from the disappointing "Reroute To Remain", In Flames opted for Trigger, arguably the album's worst track (except for maybe the Nu-metal "Transparent" and the other single, "Cloud Connected"). With terrible vocals and a really poor chorus, this song is, thankfully, instantly forgettable.
So, apart from this monstrosity, what else are we given...

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant- brings back memories galore!, 2 Feb 2012
This review is from: Trigger (Digipack) (Audio CD)
Well worth buying this, if you are a dedicated In Flames fan, and collector. A brilliant song and this format contains the famous video clip for the song. Do not forget that "Trigger's" video clip is the first part of a unit of two interconnecting clips. Trigger sees the In Flames perform on stage with fellow Goteborg band Soilwork "mocking" them from the audience. Then, in the second part, the video for the (also brilliant)song "Rejection Role" by Soilwork, it is the InFlames that are now the "jeering" audience. Meant to be enjoyed together. Trigger and Rejection Role has informed a whole generation of metal fans and never fail to bring beautiful memories to mind, to those of us that were lucky enough to experience the whole Goteborg scene through fanzines etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars A BRILLIANT COMPANION TO REROUTE TO REMAIN!!!, 4 May 2008
By 
This review is from: Trigger (Audio CD)
This EP is a great addition to go alongside 2002's 'Reroute to Remain' and also stands alone as a great collection of work, by one of my favourite bands. The main single from 'Reroute to Remain'- the awesome Trigger is not given justice on this single, Radio friendly edit, as the 1st verse and mini-chorus have been removed to reduce the length. I recommend the original version from the album, unless you are new to In Flames and just want a taster to this awesome song. Watch Them Feed is a great song with a fast, heavy riff and pounding drums- it is extremely difficult to see why this song is not on `Reroute to Remain`! Land of Confusion is a wonderfully quirky cover of the Genesis original, and another show of In Flames' talent. Cloud Connected is the true gem of this EP. This remixed version of the great classic lacks the pure, heavy metal riff of the original version, but it more than makes up for in the chorus (the keyboard 'bleeping' adds a different edge to the chorus that really shines through greatly) and the end of the song (the repetition of lines from the chorus before the electronics fade out is a much better finale to the song, than the original's blunt end). Moonshield is a fun end to this EP, with it's old computer game style bleeping and the adaptation of the awesome original Moonshield riff- it makes a welcome change to the acoustic instrumentals that we have come to know and love! Overall this EP is something worth buying for fans of In Flames and new fans that want a taster of the album 'Reroute to Remain' - An excellent 5 songs!

2.0 out of 5 stars Awful, 16 Sep 2003
This review is from: Trigger (Digipack) (Audio CD)
As their second single from the disappointing "Reroute To Remain", In Flames opted for Trigger, arguably the album's worst track (except for maybe the Nu-metal "Transparent" and the other single, "Cloud Connected"). With terrible vocals and a really poor chorus, this song is, thankfully, instantly forgettable.
So, apart from this monstrosity, what else are we given? A dire Genesis cover, two even worse remixes and only one new song. The remix of "Moonshield" in particular is dreadful. If you're wondering what "C64 Karaoke" means, imagine it programmed as music on an old computer games system without any vocals (which, taking into account Anders' horrible raspy voice, isn't such a bad thing). There are also a couple of video clips, but my computer seems unable to play them.
All that leaves me to do now is to slag off the new song, "Watch Them Feed". However, surprisingly, it's actually really good! Starting with a fast paced thrash riff, the song progressed to a melodic section and solo that could have been lifted from "Colony". This is the best song In Flames have written since the "Clayman" album, three years ago.
Aalthough mostly filled with rubbish, this EP contains a glimmer of hope, and will with a bit of luck be a sign of things to come on their next full-length album.
