First of all, the opening riff is not crap.... I like it.... Just because it doesn't sound like a "swedish melodic death old school In Flames" riff does not mean its bad... I think the problem is that too many people are being very closed minded when approaching In Flames.... As for the vocals, I think the growls, whispers and singing (if you can call it that, its still pretty growly) sound very good! I don't understand why so many people have so much hatred for them.... In all honesty though, I thought Anders sounded pretty bad on TJR and Whoracle.... Overall, a good song.... it could be a bit better production-wise (the snare drum was way too loud)... and obviously it's no Jotun or Embody the Invisible, but I'm sure there is plenty of good stuff ahead for IF.
