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.

First of all, as far as expedition and service goes, everything was fine.

Now on to the album. Although I'd heard about In Flames for over a decade, for some reason I'd never picked up one of their albums until 2014, when I bought Siren Charms. I fell in love with that album. It is a little corny and definitely very radio-friendly, especially for a metal band with In Flames' hardcore reputation. And the vocals are whiny at best. However the riffing is excellent, the production imparts a lot of space and groove into the music, and you find after repeated listens that there is a lot of what you might call "background complexity" going on that gives this album a long listening life span. And some of the tracks are pure genius - my personal favorite being "Until the World Explodes" - regardless of how commercial it might sound.

So I googled In Flames to find out more about them, and I read that Soundtrack to your Escape was supposed to be the In Flames album with the most synth action going on. Now I reasoned that, since it was the melodic/synth parts on Siren Charms that I found gave that album such a unique vibe, it would be good to pick up STYE. However I was disappointed when I found it to be far more aggressive, almost spastic at times, with relentless growling vocals and a general production style that is very thrashy and treble-oriented. Needless to say, it is not the album I was looking for. It is still a good album, however, unless you're looking for something close to Siren Charms.

I guess I wanted to write this review for anyone who read the same Wikipdia article on In Flames that I did and might think that STYE is a good follow-up listen to Siren Charms. It's not.

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.
