    What? Rusted Nail and Filtered Truth sound exactly like leftovers from SoaPF. They've got that feeling.

    C'mon man we all know how you guys acted. Always complainig about stuff, even with the songs you like. If they did something like SOAPF most of the forum would be like, "why did they do SOAPF PT2, this album sucks". So Im not expecting from you to like this album. You're gonna complain anyway. Im just tired to see same messages all over the tread.

    Totally agree. I don't see how IPV would fit in SOAPF.

    Of course you're tired. But I'm also tired of seeing people writing they don't want a return to the roots and still searching for similarities between this album and the previous.

    I'm not complaining about change (if I was I would have stop listening to the band on RTR for sure), I'm complainig about music I don't like.

    Edit: well, the last is not totally true. If a band goes from metal to other style, then of course I'm complainig. I wouldn't want to see IF becoming a regular rock band (wich is still not, but is near).

    It sounds like you just want everyone to say "yaaaay In Flames!!" and that be the end of it. Thankfully some of us are a little more interesting than that.

    A88 and myself have both posted a few positives about the album, which you've apparently overlooked, but if you're unhappy with people posting their true feelings about the album I suggest you fuck off to JesterHead where everybody will be having a huge circle-jerk about it.

    Wrong. Assumptions again. Just like everyone who mindlessly defends anything they do.

    Criticism isn't all granted equal. Each person has a different gripe.

    Some are more childish than others, like the idiots who write random shit like "go back to the jester race" in one sentence. Those guys are stupid.

    We're stating our issues in detailed explanations.

    Take each person's stated opinion individually and interpret it correctly.

    We don't say we want SoapF p. 2 (actually SC sounds like it), we want something on the same level. Two different things. SoaPF has kick-ass riffs, catchy choruses, worked-through solos, fine performance by Anders. None of this is present on SC, except for a few moments.

    In Plain View is quite an effective opener with its electro intro and its short guitar solo-ish melody in the beginning. I actually like Anders voice a lot in the verses, and Daniel's work is pretty effective throughout the song. The chorus is quite punk-ish with a very nice guitar melody. The biggest moment in this song is the instrumental part after the second chorus, this part sounds like it comes straight from Come Clarity. - 7.5

    Everything's Gone begins like a thrash metal song, and the guitars are definitely loud and quite death metal in this tune. Anders voice totally softens the heaviness of guitars during the verses, and not for the worse. The chorus is very powerful and I'd love to see that live with the crowd screaming the lyrics. The end of the guitar solo is very reminiscent of Slayer (if you ever heard Raining Blood). The song ends the same way it began: abruptly. - 7

    Paralyzed starts with a short elecro intro followed by very groovy riffs that only In Flames know the secret for. Anders then sings over a shift between electro loops and groovy riffs followed by a palmed bridge. An amazing chorus then explodes with great vocals and a nice job done here by Daniel. Anders shows here that he has never been better at clean singing and Björn performs one of his classic solos (without wah this time). Chorus goes crazy in the end of the song. - 8.5

    Through Oblivion is one of the softer songs on the album. The chorus is driven by a great work done with the keys and the soft part after the second chorus is mesmerizing. This song is the most pop-ish song they ever made and acts like a soft break in the rythm of the album. Great song, but weird choice as a single. - 7

    With Eyes Wide Open is a hit. The opening riff is quite powerful, and the guitars during the verse are very reminiscent of The Jester's Dance. Anders' voice is silky smooth here, he did an amazing work throughout the song. The chorus is one of the best they ever did in my opinion. The bluesy touch added by Björn before the last chorus fits in perfectly. One of the best songs on the album. - 9.5

    Siren Charms takes you on a boat, rolling over deep seas as the clean melody goes up and down before the sky-rocketing chorus. The break part is OK but the last chorus is definitely a big moment of this album. - 7.5

    When The World Explodes is the most aggressive song of this effort. Slap-in-you-face palmed guitars and big screams all over the place, and then comes this female voice. Wow. Finally, the chorus transcends the song, emancipates itself from it and literally explodes in this huge atmospheric ending. - 8

    Rusted Nail is probably the most generic song of the album. To me, it's the only song that doesn't have anything special for itself. It's quite enjoyable especially the last chorus, but not an exceptional song to me. - 6

    Dead Eyes begins with quite a simple riff driven by keys like the one in the begining of Alias. Then, the clean guitars during the verse are reminiscent of Square Nothing, and Anders sings with a mid-saturated voice (and that, he does well). Chorus is amazing IMO one of their best ever, but you have to give it a few listens to understand it really. The break part is very melodic. - 9.5

    Monsters in the Ballroom starts with a pitched version of the Behind Space 99' intro followed by thrashy and groovy riffs. At first, I had trouble understanding the chorus but I love it now, and this song has a great ending. - 7.5 or 8

    Filtered Truth is a mix between AC/DC, modern rock, melodeath metal and Irish punk. This song has quite a catchy chorus and a very good solo. - 7.5

    The Chase opens with an electronic guitar looping over and over, playing the same few notes with an industrial feeling. A few seconds after comes a riff that could totally be on A Sense of Purpose. Anders kicks in with a weighty grawl over a groovy riff, but trades his anger against harmonized cleans quickly after that. An amospheric bridge precedes one of the best choruses on this effort, quite pop-ish but very efficient. The solo on this song has a very pleasent atmospheric part and a well-built tapping. The last chorus gets more and more atmospheric and melts into a mesmerizing outro played by a piano over electronic sounds. - 8.5

    Become The Sky starts with the song of a robot cricket, followed by a dark riff. Anders is half-singing, half-screaming during the verses which is very powerful. The chorus is the perfect balance between atmospheric and powerful "I'm weightleeeess, when I becooooome the skyyyy. / The Earth, the Moon, the Sun, beneath me...". Very, very fucking efficient. The structure of the song is different from other songs as there are only two choruses (like "Ropes" and "Fear is the Weakness"), the second one is longer than the first one. Björn plays a wah-ish solo in the middle of the song, and the track ends with the same dark riff it opened with. This song should totally be on the record. - 9

    My brother-in-law writes some reviews in a big webzine. And no, I can't share them, sorry.

    :zombie:

    My wife's opinion after listening to the album: "There are many bands doing this kind of stuff better than them... I don't think this will be a big hit, they can even loose a lot of listeners". And "I don't like the changes in the rythm, it's like listening to many different songs in one".

    I put it here because she's impartial to their music (I'm not), and she's more used to listen to more music styles than me (U2, Madonna, REM, Pearl Jam, 30 Seconds To Mars, Anastacia, a couple of South Korean gays, or her favourite band, Led Zeppelin).

    We had a birthday party and I stole it from his iPod using Winamp (bro, if you read this, I won't share, I promise). :D

    I'm not expecting to everyone like the new album. Why would I even want that anyway? I'm just saying that from this point whatever IF does, you're not gonna like it. You're giving that vibe atlest to me anyway. I'm not having a problem with the fact that you didnt like the album. I'm respecting everyone's opinions.

    You're trolling, I know that. We're like leak brothers, why would you even share with me if you have it!

    I know, I can't share it, it sucks, I know. But I'm not a bad guy. So I have a few presents for you anyway, to ease the wait.

    I re-did the equalisation and mastering of these to make them more enjoyable than before. The original file was quite weak and messy, it's better now. It's from their live in Moskow in 2011.

    Aaaaand, their live at Malmö Arena from 2009. The full set, remastered by myself (it now has a great sound, not like the version you can hear on Krofius Youtube channel :D ). I re-did the equalisation completely, alongside a brand new mastering. Enjoy the fuck out of it as much as I do:
