I relistened to every In Flames album in order this week. Some takeaways: Lunar Strain is still boring, still my least favorite. Jester Race reigns supreme, nothing comes close. Whoracle has some good songs but it suffers from the lack of a proper drummer. Colony pwns y00. Clayman is better than I used to think it was. Anders is very out of place when not screaming. Reroute pwns y00. "Minus" is one of the best In Flames songs of all time. Soundtrack is good but needed some more time in the oven to develop some of its ideas. Come Clarity is not nearly as good as I remember. It's mostly just attack attack attack and it gets boring after a while. A Sense of Purpose kicks ass, how the hell did I consider this one of their weaker albums. Sounds of a Playground Fading is boring and nowhere near as good as I remember. Siren Charms is the worst thing they've ever done and the best thing they've ever done. I fucking love this thing. It's the anti-In Flames album. Battles has some good parts but is mostly euuuughh. I, the Mask is just as euuuugh as Battles, not better. I'm actually wondering if I think ItM is worse. I still enjoy both more than Lunar Strain.
