1)Reroute to Remain- I'd give it 94/100 Guitars were catchy and I like the way he sings.....i guess. Song and melody tend to get stuck in my head once in a while. I like it.
2)System-90/100 At first I didn't like it because of the beginning but later on was when it got better....and the usual can't get it out of my head sort of thing.
3)Drifter- 85/100 I can never get heavily into this song. But contrary to the downfall it seems like a great song to hear live. The only thing I fell in love with in this song is that little mini solo near the ending.
4)Trigger-95/100 Very beginning is when this would be the only song that I would only listen to. There's so many good things I could say about this song. The opening to the song, solos, chorus etc. But later on this song just got overplayed so many times and it seems a little too much. But it's always good to hear.
5)Cloud Connected- 95/100 Quite questioning in the beginning, I was starting to wonder if I was listening to the same cd. But I like the melodicness included in the song. It's one of my favorites.
6)Transparent-100/100 My absolute top 3 favorite. The way that it builds up in the beginning, it's just so cool the way they present it. My favorite part is in the chorus, it's very unique with the vocals, background etc. And I got to give it to the lyrics, brilliant. Yeah, it's a very unique song, I love listening to it no matter what even if Im in the shower it's entertaining to hear it.
7)Dawn of a New Day- 94/100 I think it's good to hear when I'm dozing off or whatever.Read more ›
"System" has a standout riff with AMAZING lyrical arrangements. My only concern is the song begins with a frantic riff backed by manic vocals, only to cut abruptly into "...Slow I go" (thats irony), still....it derails a potentially classic song. 4/5
"Drifter" from the get-go shows the old In Flames with their new muddy sound. Lots of melody here, a catchy chorus, and this time around much better musical arrangements than System (clean and death vocals complement eachother). 5/5
"Trigger" a single, has a dreamlike chorus and thats about it....while the versus are playing, its like your waiting for the chorus to erupt! The clean vocals are MUCH better than SOUNDTRACK TO YOUR ESCAPE. As the vocals are very very well produced "Collect some stars to shine for you" 4/5
"Cloud Connected" another single, showcases a little techno/dance music. "A True headbangers song". Over time however, it will not stand tall in the storm. Not saying the song is weak but any means, merely the best is yet to come! 4/5
"Transparent" The heaviest song on the album, Drop D and extremely nu metal. It doesnt make me sick to my stomach, as some melody does exist. I usually skip over this track, but maybe.....it was poor track placement. Not a filler, a dark song.....just read the lyrics (perhaps the best on the album). "Spend more time with the broken, see what became of their mistake, and you'll know your lost when you feel transparent". 4/5

Reroute to Remain however, as the title could be suggesting, is a different path, a new creative direction that is much simpler than the patterns of past releases. Each of the past two prior to Reroute showed signs of more commercialism in this band's future, with Colony and Clayman scoring key singles and widespread acclaim from younger fans, but drew criticism from longtime hardcorests.
This album shows the band as hardly the same group of guys that produced eye opening metal masterworks in the 90's, with the singles coming closer to radio and the fanbases gathering larger by the day, In Flames could quickly become the next European product to sell a million records within a few years. Most metal cds are lucky to get that far in a lifetime. (we wont go into the fact that Back in Black is now #6 all time) However, the oversaturated nature of this "evolution" corrodes the ears of a longtime Flamer.
If you would like to see this band closer to its past glory, the 2004 release "Soundtrack to Your Escape" is closer to form, surprising as it may seem. We may only have to bear one Reroute to Remain, like Megadeth fans had to endure only one Risk. (an album i actually like) To the credit of the Flames though, at least they attempted something different, albeit unsuccessfully in many true metal minds. Don't label these guys as sellouts for one album...they are still In Flames. Trust me.
