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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, metal worthy of a new millennium July 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Virtually Unsalvagable Mess July 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
I have listened to this album repeatedly in an attempt to find salvagable material but have come to the conclusion that the entire album is basically a waste of material.
For the most part, the few vestiges of melodic death metal that were retained on "Reroute to Remain" have been totally discarded on "Soundtrack to Your Escape". The complex, drawn-out guitar harmonies that were pervasive throughout In Flames' earlier work are all but nonexistent, replaced by blunt, heavy riffs that quickly dispel all notions of melody. For reasons I cannot fathom, this particular style of guitar-work is very popular; many mainstream "rock"/"metal" bands utilize it and have great commercial success. I personally find it quite boring and difficult to believe that Gelotte and Stromblad would write such *crap*.
Svensson's skills are also never fully brought to light on "Soundtrack to Your Escape". His drumming here is at best average, lacking the inspiration of his "Clayman" performance. This is unfortunate and I think it's a damn shame that he's been playing average material for three of the four albums he's been with In Flames.
I'm not even going to bother with Iwers, given that he serves the (insert generic bassist here so that (insert band) can keep playing) slot.
Friden, however, is the largest disappointment as a musician because he lacks any ability to sing but tries to anyways. It should be noted that many vocalists who employ harsh vocals have impressive singing talent, including Mikael Stanne of Dark Tranquillity, Mikael Akerfeldt of Opeth, Jim Kjell (formerly) of Gardenian and Dan Swano of (insert band here). Anders Friden, however, has none.

Don't get me wrong, Soundtrack to Your Escape is a great album, but knowing that this is In Flames I couldn't give it 5 stars. They are capable of so much more than this. Read more
