4.0 out of 5 stars Definite improvement., 14 Feb 2006

This review is from: Come Clarity (Audio CD)
Well, there I was thinking In Flames had lost it after the dismal and uninspiring Soundtrack to Your Escape album, when they pull out a suckerpunch like this. Thought the insanely catch twin guitar harmonies of yore had been abandoned? Think again. Desperately pining for the melodic death stylings of "Colony" and "Clayman"? Rejoice! All these elements that made In Flames great have returned.
That said, another Clayman this is not. The production and songwriting owe more to "Reroute to Remain" than any of the previous masterpieces, and in a way this fills a space in between those two albums. The songs are more densely layered and twisty than Clayman, but not as off-kilter or experimental as Reroute, and I think as a whole In Flames pull it off, although I can't help feeling like I've heard it before. The vocals still aren't as strong as either Reroute or Clayman, and if the album has a weakness it's Anders Frieden's clean singing. The guy can still shriek with the best of them, but his nasal whine sections are really off-putting, especially when the rest of the band are firing on all cylinders. Lucky then that there aren't nearly as many of them as on the last two records. To tell the truth though, it has been toned down since Soundtrack, and he's roaring in tune now more than the previous album, which is a welcome relief....
The songs are really good though, which is the main thing. "RTR" took quite a lot of listening to before it clicked (for me at least), and this is a similar beast. The catchy choruses are there in abundance, as are the face-melting riffs and solos so sorely lacking from "STYE".
So to summarize, a very solid album of corking tunes, and certainly a return to form of the highest order. One star docked for slightly weak vocals. Also worth a mention is the package you get. Really nice digipack with poster/lyrics, and a bonus DVD of the band playing the album live in the studio, along with some extras. Very impressive value for money. If you liked Clayman AND RTR like me, this album is exactly what you want it to be, if you think they lost the plot after Clayman, give this a shot, it might change your mind. Quality album. Welcome back, In Flames.

As my son already knew most of the tracks he was expecting the CD to be good and he wasn't disappointed. His favourite track is 'Reflect the storm.' He has already ordered two more CDs from this group Colony: Reloadedand Soundtrack to Your Escape with the anticipation they will be just as good, if not better.

I got this on CD when it was first released (seems like so long ago now) and although I've moved away from this style of music I still love this album. If you're a fan of the genre then you'll like this one.
