Projector was a big chance for DT. Having made a name for themselves by playing technical, progresive melodic death and already released one of the genres defining works, 'The Gallery', and coming straight after their most technical and aggressive work to date 'The Minds I', Projector shocked a lot of fans, my self included, with its bold new approach, electronics and toned down aggression. This really didn't sit to well with me at first, but after a couple of months i really warmed up to it and began to appreciate that, as always, Dark Tranquillity have crafted a great album in Projector and you just have to be a bit open minded to get it.

For starters, the guitars are tuned a bit lower and the riffs are much more simple then before. there's also nothing really fast or progressive on here, with tracks being more groove orientated and mid-paced. The band also shed much of their classical and gothenburg sounds, at times pandering to straight up rock and metal and not much dual guitar harmonies. We find much more melodic singing then before, and Mikaels screaming vocals are a bit lower then before. So, it doesn't really sound like anything DT ever did before and it is very accessible. But, somehow, Projector just works because its still DT. Yes its slower and not really very extreme, but its still got the same sense of creativity and wonderful sense of melody that we know and love from the band. And the transition between clean and death vocals is usually done to great effect, such as on Therein and Doberman.

Whats really important about Projector is that it shows the band beginning to spread their creative wings in new directions.

Dark Tranquillity have been, and still are, forerunners of the Gothenburg flavour of death metal.

With this album, as many will know, the band took a very progressive and experimental approach to their music.

The duelling lead guitars from Niklas Sundin and Fredrik Johansson are present here; these two musicians have purpose for every single note of their music, whether soft or raging.

The ryhthm section is creative, and Anders Jivarp, who in my opinion is the most under-rated drummer in metal, complements each song perfectly with odd time signatures and thundering tom crescendos.

And so far, I haven't even touched on the vocals. Mikael Stanne is not the best singer in heavy metal music. He is the best singer in any style of music! The emotion in his voice, from raspy anger to pained, melodramatic overtones, matches the songs perfectly.

I would highly recommend this album to anyone with an interest in melodic death metal, or simply amazing songwriting and incredible instrumental skill.

Having bought the latest DT album Haven b4 this I was originally let down by the album. But after listening through the whole album found it 2 b almost as good. Mikhael Stanne uses clean voice to great effect on many of the tracks and the female vocals on track 3 are fantastic. The only let down song is track 8 with an annoying electronic drone. Although Haven in some ways surpasses this album,it s still a fantastic purchase by one of Sweden's best melodic death metal bands

Ever since hearing Dark Tranquillity's awesome "The Gallery" album, I've been longing for them to record more stuff with clean vocals. Projector is that album, striking a balance between the clean and death vocals. On paper, this should make it one of the albums of the decade. In reality, however, they've changed the music as well as the vocals. There's far less of the symphonic grandeur that was found on "The Gallery", and the whole thing sounds dull and lifeless in comparison. That's not to say it's a bad album -- far from it, but it's certainly not all I was hoping for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitive of the genre 7 July 2013
By CraigC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
After being stuck in a rut with the thrash I grew up with for years, I discovered melodic death metal what must now be 15yrs ago. I fell in love with the heavy yet melodic guitars and the harsh growled vocals, combined with Michael's soft, clean vocals. I found out that keyboards can be cool and I expanded my horizons. Dark Tranquillity quickly became one of my favorites. I don't particularly care for Gallery and Skydancer but to me, The Mind's I, Projector, Haven and Damage Done are not only my favorite DQ albums but some of the finest examples of melodic death metal ever written. Back then, everything about this music was different. While Therion and Nightwish were pioneering symphonic/operatic metal, DQ (along with In Flames, At the Gates and others) was pioneering the Gothenburg sound. Projector stands out among the rest as one of, if not the best of the bunch. There is a great variety of sounds on this album, with probably more of Michael's clean vocals than any other album. From ballads like Auctioned and Day To End to more powerful tunes like FreeCard and ThereIn. It's a great album from a band that created and defined a genre and anyone who loves melodic death metal should have it in their library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Remarkable stuff 30 Mar. 2003
By Rosenhaus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I guess there's some kind of contradiction in describing a CD as melodic progressive death metal, but that's what comes closest for me. I think that death metal works best when the vocals are clean at least some of the time, as they are here. It's a diverse CD, with no weak tracks (almost the ultimate compliment), and holds up well to repeated listening. My favorite track right now is 'To A Bitter Halt' (which is one of the tracks that took a while to grow on me), thanks to its dead-on tempo changes and multiple contrasting themes.
Be warned, it's particularly hard to get a feel for this CD from the 30 second samples on Amazon, both because these tracks take more time than that to appreciate, and because the loss of sound quality in the streamed audio really detracts (especially the loss of lower frequencies).
'Damage Done', their latest CD, is good as well, though none of the vocals are clean on that one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning 24 April 2001
By C. C. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed Dark Tranquillity's music in the more traditional dark metal style, but this has to be heard to be believed. Who would have guessed that a band whose usual style is the dark metal variety trademark rasp-scream could produce such an awesome melodic variation? Top it with the slightly toned down, more harmonized yet still intense instrumental style, and I would never have expected it. While I still thoroughly enjoy their other traditional style, this is a genuine masterpiece to be enjoyed. Highly recommended.

It's Dark Tranquility that has never failed me except the one and 'only' song ( I hope).
This album has 14 songs and all good.
