I am so disappointed with this album. The guitar riffs are easy, boring, and repetitive, as are the drum lines. The bass is practically non-existant(although this hasn't really changed, it's never been there for In Flames). The lyrics for every single song are angst-ridden and focus on how life is so unfair, prety much. They could have been written by a 14 year old. Even worse, Anders Friden does a Jonathon Davis-esque whine>>yell>>scream on a few of the songs. There's not a single classic In Flames melody on the entire cd. It's not even melodic metal. At best, it's crappy black metal. I recommend that you don't buy this cd. Listening to it made me sad, as In Flames is hardly even a shadow of their former self. I give this cd a 2/10.
