Product Description

Although In Flames have still yet to achieve great success in North America, the Swedish band, over the past decade, has become one of the most revered, yet highly scrutinized metal acts in the world. With as many high quality releases as the band has put out, the fans demand excellence every time out, and with Soundtrack to Your Escape, In Flames continue to hold up their end of the bargain. Nuclear Blast. 2005.

If you are like me, then you love In Flames no matter what they produce. Their live performances rock your world for months, and the smile on your face grows bigger each time you hear your favorite songs by them. With that said, "Soundtrack To Your Escape" is not their best material.
I know that tons of In Flames fans were disappointed with this album, and I was too, but only to an extent. "STYE" sounds more riff-driven by power chords like "Reroute to Remain," instead of harsh screaming and solos in every song like "The Jester Race," "Black Ash Inheritance," and "Whoracle." I liked "Reroute" alot, and still do. Maybe part of my love for it is that it came out during a time in my life that I really needed something to pick me up, and "Freefall," "Trigger," and "Cloud Connected" did that for me. I am probably biased towards it's sound, but it totally grew on me the more I listened to it, too.
For those of you who want some advice, DO NOT BUY THIS ALBUM AS YOUR FIRST IN FLAMES RECORD!!! Start with "the Jester Race." That album will make you love In Flames for their up-beat sound and fantastic use of melody, solos, and aggressiveness. Then buy "Black Ash Inheritance" so you can own my favorite song by In Flames, "Goliaths disarm their Davids." Whoracle is probably your next best bet with it's amazing guitar work. Every song rocks my world. "Episode 666" is a bit tedious with it's chorus, but the tiny solo makes me want to cry it is so catchy.

I confess, I'm absolutely stumped as to why this album doesn't have a 4.5-star average rating. This was my first In Flames album, and not only does it bestow the metal song of the decade on our finally open ears, after hearing STYE my -next- In Flames album purchase was their previous _5_ albums. In fact, I have STYE in my top 10 albums since 2000... that's considering _all_ forms of heavy music.
Dissers and moaners, are you writing a review, or are you just bullcrapping with other fans, maybe trying to send ultimatums to your band? If you want to make gripes, go to the chat board. If you want to send a message to the band, compose a damn letter, you lazy pricks. Don't scourge your band and knock down its rating, when you know damn well that relative to all other metal out there, this music smokes and these guys are absolute gems.
Ok, time to actually review. This is the band, this is the album, that will likely open the door for you to all forms of heavy metal... It is very well-produced, has two heavy guitarists that (unlike Slipknot) give you both melody and riffs, and there's lots of colorful, atmospheric synthetics in the background. The bass and drums are low, pounding, and perfect. Anders' singing might grate newbie ears at first, but it blends so well with the band that you're acclimated by the third or fourth song.
I've never purchased black metal, death metal, goth metal, or most other bands featured on the Headbangers Ball. But now it feels like I can embrace all those forms. I missed out on In Flames for so long... I'm not going to miss out on anything else.
The album's opening is the flamethrower. Quiet Place is what it is. Touch of Red is just as good, even heavier. The emotional opening to track 7 and the chorus of track 9 are the only weak points.

Honestly, I don't see how you folks can keep saying that 'this isn't their best album' crap. This is the stuff that got me started on In Flames two months ago.
For one reason; my brother went to see In Flames and Killswitch Engage on May 5th, 2004 in Minneapols/St. Paul. He came back telling me that I'd like them more than System of a Down. And truly, if In Flames has the musical power to have my love as much as System does, then you have to give this album a try.
If this album hadn't come out, I don't know if I'd be listening to In Flames. Each song on STYE has it's own style and the tunes don't sound repeative, like on other bands' albums. Although Clayman is my favorite IF album, STYE is still a great choice if you want to hear the latest from this awesome band.
And when In Flames came out in '91, I don't think anyone in their right mind expected them to be this good. And yes, they're Swedish, so it's enough to get the American mind on something else for once besides ourselves. So in other words: give IF a shot, their style is different than that of most others.

How you rate this album will largely depend on how you view In Flames' earlier work, especially Jester Race, Whoracle, and Colony. If you have never heard those albums, and are a fan of Nu-Metal, then STYE will seem like a breath of fresh air....almost like a "Korn with Keyboards" sound. However, as some view this as an evolution for In Flames, I regrettably see it as a devolution for the band; for a few key reasons.
1.) Less and less reliance on complex, melodic guitar harmonies and solos (Artifacts of the Black Rain anyone) and more focus on drop d stacatto riffing, which in my opinion is the bane to melodic metal. (So instead of sounding like Iron Maiden meets 'Puppets-era Metallica, In Flames sounds more and more like System of a Down, Korn, etc.
2.) A bottom-heavy production that over emphasizes the bass and drums at the expense of the once wonderful guitar play. Once again this makes In Flames sound more like Nu Metal than Gothenburgh.
3.) Anders trying more and more to sing....which is somewhat embarrasing. Anders voice sounds like gravel, which used to help the band's sound (Listen to Episode 666 or Morphing Into Primal from Whoracle to see what I mean.) Now he tries to sing and it doesnt come off to well.
Don't get me wrong, this album is still solid, and it still beats most of the other metal coming out today, but for an In Flames record, it is mediocre at best.
