New to In Flames,
This review is from: Reroute to Remain (Audio CD)
I didn't know that much about In Flames until I heard a couple of tracks from this album on sampler CD's - so although I can't make a comparison with their other material, I can tell you if it's good in itself. It most definitely is.
The record is at the heavier end of my music collection, but as other reviewers have mentioned, there is a strong melodic side to all the tracks. There are the usual grumblings from people in this scene who think that when a band's style becomes more accessible to non-initiates, it's an _automatic_ loss of band integrity. Ignore those people, because they're stupid.
There are several stand-out tracks like 'Reroute To Remain', 'System' and 'Cloud Connected' - if you've heard any of these tracks and liked them, the rest of the album is in a very similar vein and won't disappoint
