This is it. The infamous album. The album where In Flames definitely left the underground and joined the mainstream. The sound could be heard on the "Cloud Connected" single released prior to this album (which is strange because this is one of the least interesting tracks on the album) and caused quite a stir in the metal press. Some hailed the new sound, some hated it, but the fact (as seen from this time distance) is that the whole thing was exaggerated and the change isn't THAT drastic. It is just the next step in the speeding evolution of their music. Listen to any track from "Clayman" before these ones to see what I'm talking about.

There are always going to be debates about whether In Flames have sold out or not. People are always going to slate the newer material whilst praising the older. Personally, I enjoy all their discography, I see their change as neither good nor bad, but just as a simple evolution. In the late 90s and early 2000s In Flames were probably my favourite band. Today, although I still enjoy listening to them from time to time, they have somewhat lost some of their appeal. However, one album sticks out and never ceases to amaze me, that one is Reroute To Remain.

Yeah it is. I scored it so high because of the memories and the gateway to heavier bands aspect of it but it's still a lot better than people give credit for.

Even more underrated in a way because it was even less liked than this, despite actually being quite unique as an album.

Exactly... I think it's a very misunderstood album. I don't know what's not to like. I also agree with the unique sound. I can't explain why, but I do find it quite unique.

I guess if you went into it expecting the typical Iron Maiden-esque melody and leads it would be pretty disappointing given the cold and mechanical sound of it.

I honestly didn't have any expectations. I knew it wasn't going to be anything like the previous albums. I guess I thought something in the lines of "nu metal"... and I got a varied synth-friendly Nu-Metal-ish album with a production that really works and great guitar work.

Well I found In Flames on this album so when I bought Reroute I was hella disappointed =P it wasn't till years later I learned to appreciate it.

I started to get into In Flames just a year ago I think. So I read every single kind of opinions about all the albums. So it was hard to get really dissapointed... I think the only time I actually felt dissapointed was with Clayman. I expected way more specially since I highly enjoyed the three albums before it (I'm yet to listen to the debut). Clayman was good but that's it.

I liked Clayman. More so than Colony. Just has a nice, melodic sound to it. Swim is an awesome song too.

I guess I felt it was... too nice? Almost too uplifting without the agressive bite I felt with the others. That song is one very awesome tune indeed. But damn... Colony has Embody The Invisible and that track is just woah. But Clayman is a good album for sure, with the 0.5 on the site I would give it a higher rating It has been a while since I listen to it so I might try a few more times.

Rating: 10 Although they turned towards a more commercial sound, I can't resist the melodies. I think it's their most innovative album, but I like Clayman even more.

Rating: 8 As a big fan of the early albums of In Flames, I was a bit reticent about this one, considering all that has been said about it. But after getting this album and listening to it this week, I'm amazed at how much I love it. This is fantastic. Sure, there might be some songs that are more 'commercial-friendly' but this still sounds like In Flames. So many catchy riffs.

Rating: 7 It's been about a decade since I last heard this.

Some of it sounds better than what I remember, whereas other bits sound worse than I remember.

Still prefer it to Clayman, though it doesn't compare to their earlier stuff.

I think I regret giving it away though....this is becoming a recurring theme.

Indeed, i won't be surprised if the upcoming album will be disappointing!
