5.0 out of 5 stars Hide From The Sun, 11 Nov. 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Hide From The Sun (Audio CD)
This album I found to be one of their best (And as stated earlier, this isn't their fifth album, but their 7th - if you include Hellofacollection - ).
Having only bought the Special Edition version (after hearing many in-praise reviews of Dancer in the Dark) I would say that, for Open My Eyes, I would re-buy the album in the regular edition.
Anyway, enough about that. The album is a lot darker and heavier than their 2004 album 'Dead Letters', however the songs are nevertheless still as catchy as other songs have previously been.
The unfortunately unsuccessful single 'No Fear' failed to reach it's full potential as it is a strikingly good song, however this cannot be the song to represent the album as other songs such as 'Dead Promises' and 'Lucifer's Angel' are much more powerful!
Mixed in with the heavy songs are of course, those beautiful ballads which The Rasmus seem to be extrmely good at. 'Sail Away' (Single released Nov 14th), 'Don't Let Go' and 'Keep Your Heart Broken' are the exact songs to show how beautifully sad a song can be. The melodies are simple - mixed in with the odd high note or two - and the guitars are catchy and have been known enduce swaying.
Anyway, I really am getting carried away. I thought this album was brilliant and is now under a tenner (£1 more for the Special Edition - with Bonus track: 'Dancer in the Dark' instead of 'Open My Eyes') What more do you need?
