3.0 out of 5 stars Er...hmmm..., 18 July 2006
By 
This review is from: Hide From The Sun [Limited Edition] (Audio CD)
I do not regret purchasing Hide from the Sun, and I am likely to get Dead Letters, but there is a bit to be adressed. The Album shoots it load early on, with the excellent "Shot" and "Night After Night(Out of the Shadows"- the worthy response to "In the Shadows". These are catchy and thrashy songs which will either cause you to thrash along with them or listen and tune out completely. I love this album, and I reccomend it, it has some really good tracks that shouldn't be missed.

To illustrate, heres an assessment of each of the tracks.

Shot: Very much like a lot of their songs, you'll stick with this for its superior instrumental work, the thrashy bits in between are enticing. The verses are a bit weak, but the powerful chorus is great too. 4/5.

Night after Night(Out of the Shadows): One of, if not the best song on the album. The instrumental, yet again, is thrashy and hypnotic. The verses are true to the Rasmus's form, quiet and haunting. Then when the chorus kicks in, Lauri's vocals really do the job. 5/5

No Fear: Another great track. A bit corny with "Destination Darkness", but is spooky and different enough to excite, especially the breathy "Haaah" in the background. 4/5

Lucifer's Angel: Horribly drawn out lyrics do this no favours, and the background music needs more attention for such a dramatic track. 2/5

Last Generation: A delightfully mosh-errific track. 4/5

Dead Promises: Appears to be the title track. Displays how uninspiring the album's title is. 3/5

Immortal: Really delivers. Lauri's vocals fit perfectly. 4/5

Sail Away: A mix of what I want more of, and some shouldn't-haves. The calm verses are merely ok, yet a nice change, and the chorus makes up for it, but only just. This gets one more point for the violin work-it really blends with the Rasmus's violin work.3/5

Keep your heart broken: Emotional track which breaks out of the regular beats the band is renowned for, giving a cool angry feel mid-song. 4/5

Heart of Misery: Not bad, but the songs are getting more and more samey now. 2/5.

Don't let go: In a similar fashion to Sail Away, pleasantly soulful, but lacks real power. 2/5
