Let's take a look at The Dream from the metalcore band In This Moment. They brought us a pretty kickass album last time with Beautiful Tragedy.

Now it's time for The Dream an album that dropped all the metalcore elements and switched to a more girly rock path. It did not get me as excited as Beautiful Tragedy, but at least the music tried to get me to listen.

The album was so boring to listen to. It may be because I'm a pure hardcore metal fan or that I'm a guy who isn't into girly rock music for thirteen year girls who write in their diary every day about a boy they like. No I'm not into the nice atmosphere of the music or the hard rock roots of the album. It wasn't pleasing to listen to.

I was expecting Maria to scream my ears out but nope, I get this. Although the performance of the music is highly positive I still can't seem to get the good stuff in my head.

At least I'm not the only one to feel this. Though many will say this album is awesome but I don't feel they look at this from a metalhead point of view.

So, to wrap this up the album is average and I shouldn't give it a bad score for what my ears say. Yes, this album has a great design of hard rock element and Maria's vocals in the songs are as good as her screaming. Yes, I would recommend this to most In This Moment fans that are in love with them (The Real Fans).

So be it. To all it's a good listen; it is average but if you can't take my word for it, listen to it yourself.
