5.0 out of 5 stars Sonic bliss, 5 Sep 2003
This review is from: Reroute to Remain (Audio CD)
Overall, this is an excellent In Flames album, continuing their best qualities whilst also adding new touches (a subtle melody here, more clean vocals there). 'Reroute..' sees 'Flames trying new things: and they work.
Reroute to Remain: The title track, one of the stronger ones. Begins with a great riff after a tiny build up, roars through the memorable verse and into the well-balanced chorus. A welcome solo is in about 2/3rds through. Great chorus. [8]
System: Starts like a tank, all at once. Verses are relentless, then slows down to the pre-chorus, which is sung. The chorus itself is inspired, totally catchy and utterly brilliant. The climax of the song (where the chorus is screamed at length not sung) is stunning. [10]
Drifter: Not the smartest or heaviest, but a good solid track. [6]
Trigger: Catchy as hell melodic chorus, catchy as hell verses, good riffs. But maybe drags on a little too long.. the edited version of it on the Trigger EP is sublime. [8]
Cloud Connected: One of the highlights. More melodic than most, sung verses for once but still heavy as f*ck. Very hummable. [9]
Transparent: Thrashy-turns-slower. Average track, nothing special. [6]
Dawn of a New Day: Acoustic (!), yet still moves along nicely. Still some screams. A new twist on the In Flames vibe, and on this track, its great. [9]
Egonomic: Fast, furious, bollocks-to-the-wall In Flames dementia, good chorus. [8]
Minus: Slightly anonymous.. takes a few listens to appreciate, but good. [7]
Dismiss the Cynics: Irritated me for a while, and sounds similar to Cloud Connected (this is a good thing). [8]
Free Fall: Great thumping rhythum, good marching song. Nice beat. [8]
Dark Signs: Slightly more melodic (again), retains the heaviness. An album highlight [9]
Metaphor: The acoustic 'ballad'. Its well-done, Anders sings well, and its certainly different. I love it, but not sure how others will react. Still has a rhythum, don't be put off by the 'b' word.
Black And White: Stunning album closer. Excellent verse-riffing to accompany the catchyness, and the chorus is sublime. [9]
Tracks of notable mention: System, Cloud Connected, Black and White, Metaphor.
