Very good album!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Dark Light (Standard Version) (Audio CD)
I bought 'Dark Light' because I was hooked on the 1st single for the album 'Wings Of A Butterfly'. At first, I really disliked the album, thinking it was messy and more pop than gothic (as described by reviewers). I then decided to give the album a 2nd chance, and I listened to it properly. I decided that 'Killing Loneliness' is the best song on the album, with soft piano tunes that sound similar to HIM's previous 'Join Me' single. However, despite this, the song is definitely a track all goth/rock fans should listen to when feeling glum. 'Vampire Heart' is a catchy and rocky track, with strong vocals from singer Ville Valo and gothic lyrics.
I don't like 'Under The Rose' - mainly because it doesn't fit in with the sound HIM were trying to create within the album.
Darker and more melancholic tracks such as 'Face Of God' and 'Play Dead' are also one of my favourites, and are favoured by other rock fans too.
A great album!
