This album has a mixture of light songs such as the almost entirely acoustic "The Chosen Pessimist" and heavier songs like the fast paced "Drenched in Fear". This album is a must-buy for those who enjoyed the previous three albums (Come Clarity, Soundtrack to Your Escape and Reroute to Remain) as they have continued progressing down the path to be slightly more melodic and slightly less metal.
They still have a few heavy songs for the older fans of Colony and its kin, however, it's just that the people who like their newer stuff will like this album more than those who prefer their older songs.
Overall a very good album with a mix of songs, all of which I enjoy listening to very much!
HIGHLIGHTS: Alias,I'm The Highway,The Chosen Pessimist,Drenched in Fear,Condemmed
Now to the dvd. You kinda get the feeling the band is comfortable with european success on this dvd. Not too bothered about breaking new ground,just content with going to work and drinking,what is very apparent on here is how boring these guys are. You could find more personality in an orphanage. Drab guys really.The drummer tries his upmost to be the quirky weird one,but nothing gets going as authentic in his efforts or the bands. They like to play metal,that is it. The best part of this dvd for me is hearing the guitar licks being re recorded and multi layered,and seeing the two guitarist from'As i Lay Dying' try to bring some happy drinking spirit to the moody bunch,
This album has great depth, and has alot to offer for new and old fans of In flames.
This album,their ninth is more of the same then,but doesnt have the same underlying qualities that made 2006s come clarity something of a wee gem,i could keep going back and comparing this to all their albums and it wouldnt win too many battles but thats unfair,this still has some great tracks,but the dreaded word 'filler' has started to rear its ugly head.
The first 5 tracks are all powerful and well written and dont need to shy away from anyone,its track 6 and 7 that just reek of average,they really do,very hard to take a liking too,and before you go mad,i have listened to this album plenty since its release 2 months ago.
The eight minute track 'the chosen pessimist' finds anders wanting to be thom yorke of radiohead and he does fine and the song which is new enough territory for the band is very good indeed,they can do tracks like that all they want from here on in should they wish.
The next track 'sober and irrelevant' is superb,'condemned' is very average,'drenched in fear' is very good and the album closer is something in between,sounding good and yet not.
When in flames strike the nail on the head they do it as good as anyone,but here they also let a few unwelcome tracks onto the release,they have lost their consistencey for once in a good few years and while its forgivable i cant up the album review on that basis,3.5 stars.
