But . . .this is pretty intense and dramatic CD. At once heavy metal, glam rock, classical, and a bunch of other stuff. The truth is, that it kinda defies classification, and is better for it. This album has songs with guest singers, and also purely instrumental songs, going from singer to harmony cello from song to song.
The music is VERY melodic, even in the heavier, faster songs. If you are looking for an amazingly different sound, and some truly well composed music, you can't beat Apocalyptica. And if you EVER get the chance to see them live, pay up to $200/ticket . . .they are that good live.
The album has a few slow songs, which although original, beg the listener to remember where they know those sounds from: Bittersweet, Faraway Ruska are the three that have stuck with me. Then there are some hardcore industrial sounds in Fisheye and Betrayal/Forgiveness that take slightly different angles than the hardcore songs on Reflections.
This is such a good album, I have no problems listening to it through and through a few times in a row, since it is such a rewarding, emotional experience.
