4.0 out of 5 stars A real grower, 12 Sep 2010
This review is from: The Panic Broadcast (Audio CD)
You know that a band is one of your favourites when, upon receiving their new release, you are almost reluctant to play it in case it disappoints. It's only fair to state that Soilwork fit into this category for me: thankfully, I can rest assured that they haven't let me down!

The Panic Broadcast is a sound showcase for the depth and diversity of music that Soilwork can produce. There are a couple of real blasters on here that will make excellent pit-fodder, and more than a few of the huge, uplifting choruses we have by now come to expect: so far, so good, and nothing too startling. However, there is also -and this might sound a bit wooly, but bear with me- a far greater degree of emotivity in the music this time around. I'm not implying that they've all cut their hair into funny shapes and have fallen out with their parents, but that there seems to be a real sense of belief behind the music that carries over very well and is very involving.

This album deserves repeated playing, as each listen opens it up a little more and draws you further in. If you've bought Soilwork before, this will make a very refreshing addition to their back-catalogue: if you're thinking of taking the plunge, this is a perfect showcase to see exactly what the band can do. And if you are a newbie to Soilwork, go and buy Stabbling the Drama, too!
