From start to finish, this album has the tempo changes and the intensity that we have come to expect from the original compositions by this band, and also has the feature of a cover tune of the german version Heros by David Bowie sang by Rammmstein's lead singer. Also featured are tracks with Three days grace lead singer, Corey Taylor of Stonesour/Slipknot, and Christina Scabia of Lacuna Coil. These vocal tracks are all decent, but I'm still more interested in the music behind them. However, again, apocalyptica makes it work well. Plus, since the addition of drumming from the album reflections forward, Dave Lombardo of Slayer continues to guest on a few of the tracks. A nice booming addition to this already blistering line up. Tracks to play loud are "I'm not Jesus", "I Don't Care", and "Worlds Collide". Again, very good album for first timers to get, and a must for fans.
The vocal tracks really kill the flow for me and they bring down Apocalyptica's potential. The vocal tracks are less dynamic and the lyrics are either hit or miss, they are a miss with me. Cristina Scabbia has a beautiful voice and I was thrilled to see that she contributed, but the song is too simple and the lyrics aren't very poetic. I couldn't even post the lyrics that bug me here for a reason. When I thought of the combination I had hoped for something much better. The only vocal track that seems to work for me is "Helden" featuring Till Lindemann and it's just a cover of "Heroes" by the Wallflowers.
The album is still great, I still gave it 4 stars for a reason. It's absolutely beautiful metal, I just wish there was more Apocalyptica and less awkward guest vocal tracks that seem to hold them down creatively.
The tracks that really stand out on this album are: 1. Worlds Collide, 2. Grace, 7. Last Hope, 9. Burn (my new all time favorite), 11. Peace, 12. Ural, and 14. Dreamer.
The tracks that I really don't like are the tracks with singers, unfortunately; 3, 5, 8, and 10. That's why I can't give this album a perfect score, as much as I want to. On their previous albums the tracks with singers have been the standout excellent tracks to me, but on this one they're kind of whiny.
Overall, though, this is an excellent album. Buy it. Play it for your friends.
It was worth the price just for that song. The music is Haunting.
Cristina Scabbia , from Lacuna Coil, does the vocals.
She is amazing !!!! I give that song 4 stars !!!!
there are some other guests doing vocals on the cd that are very good as well. the rest of the songs are instrumentals, also good.
I really like the cd, I'm glad I purchased it & feel it was worth the price.
I'll be looking into getting more cd's from this artist.
