    it sounds bad because its so damn confused and all over the map.... whether the album turns out to be good or bad, i wouldn't be surprised if it sounded completely different from this "review".

    I dont like the way the reviewer compares them too many different bands. They need to get there own sound back not rip bits and pieces off others...

    yeah but this one seems pointless, unnecessary, and overkill. it almost sounds as if he was given a list of random bands to try and compare too for no reason.

    At least he didn't compare them to Creed.

    I don't like the idea of a more riff driven, and less melodic album...

    Someone does really need to retranslate this.

    Actually I'm looking forward too it, hope it turns out like I'm expecting, something different, but still good. I'd rather not hear another Lunar Strain/TJR/whoracle/colony/clayman/rtr, but instead something different, that still sounds good.

    more riff driven does not mean less melodic. LS was riff driven. TJR was riff driven. etc......

    That's what the article just said... To be more riff driven and less melodic.

    So...

    I think the guy who wrote that article is the same idiot that wrote about the St Angers songs with admiration and hyped it up.

    quote the part in the review where it claims to be "less melodic". more riff driven does not mean less melodic. and even so, why should it matter if the riffs kick ass. they're never gonna be as melodic as they were on TJR anyway. its always going to be melodic though. thats the core of In Flames.

    Just wait to you hear it: are some of you actually fans of this band?! Just pretend they didnt make any albums after Whoracle if it stops the moaning. True originality is a myth and if In Flames were to keep repeating themselves they'd have a whole new mob of complaints to face. Sorry, just had to get that off my chest.

    This is not a review, it's a studio report. You should know that the guy who wrote it also hyped St Anger like it was the second coming of christ, calling it really fast, aggressive and awesome.

    Apart from that, I think it will be a very enjoyable album. The people I've talked to that have heard it says its great.
