deep shadows.... i think not, 11 Jun. 2003
In an Interview Ville said that he named this album 'deep shadows and brilliant highlights' because the 'deep shadows' are the bad tracks on the CD and the 'brilliant highlights' are the good, or in this CD's case, great tracks. If i was him i would have called it brilliant highlights because this CD is amazing.
It has strong songs that will get you jumping like 'pretending' and 'heartache every moment', the deep, dark side of my personal favourite, 'love you like i do', and the beautifully crafted, 'beautiful', 'in joy and sorrow' and 'close to the flame'. If you already own a his infernal majesty CD then save up and buy this one because it is amazing, or even if you have never heard them before, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN.
Most people, like me, first heard H.I.M on the hilarious CKY DVDs, but H.I.M are the best part about them.
I would rate this album 10 out of 10, and all of the H.I.M albums for a fact. If you ever get as lucky as me and have a chance to see them live, GO, because they are the most amazing live act.
In comparison to their other albums this rates very high.It is possibly not the best, the best is 'Razorblade romance', if you don't own that then order it from this site right NOW! It is third best after 'Love Metal' and above 'Greatest lovesongs volume 666', which is good considering all of their albums are amazing.
Thanks for reading.
