The biggest letdown of 2004

Guest review by
After the surprise of "Reroute to Remain", In Flames show that they want to solidify their new musical approach. The intention of creating a modern and refreshing new sound is transmitted perfectly in this album. The alternative influences from Industrial Metal are clearer and the reality of the sound and style is also more perceptible.

If you just see my rating and believe that I am some kind of strange trend follower or metal kid I would like to tell you that my relation to and opinion of this album is completely healthy. As it should be, by no means objective - my opinion is totally based upon when I first heard it at the age of 13. As such a young and untainted kid, I more or less only listened to NWOBHM bands, but I also liked to listen to a Swedish radio show that played rock and metal music. One evening they happened to have an In Flames special with interviews, and most of Soundtrack To Your Escape - their latest release - was played. I was completely stunned - I had never before liked any music with growl/shrieks but this was amazing! I could not believe that you could blend melody with extreme elements in such an awesome way. The day after I went to a store and used my savings to buy it, and I listened to it way too much.

A step down for sure, no longer having the energetic fun of Reroute or the amazing melodies of their old stuff, but it's got a nice atmosphere if you can look past the edginess.

I'm glad that Anders stopped his Jonathan Davis copycat vocals after this at least.

Overwatcher, MS Xena, crumbled him in no time. MS needs you to kill the boredom in here.

Compared to RtR it is a step down, but it is a really solid addition to IF's discography.
Many people complain about this being IF doing nu metal. Agreed, it has some strong nu metal elements, but I think they manage to do it very well. Nu metal doesn't have to be bad metal.

My biggest complaint with this album is that the drumming is a bit stale and boring. It would have worked much better with more varied beats, and with more double pedalling in there.

Some fillers like Like You Better Dead and Superhero of the Computer Rage, but some aces like Touch of Red (!!!), The Quiet Place, Dial 595-Escape and Bottled.

Replace "Like You Better Dead" by "Borders And Shadings" and we'll agree
