In all honesty this album is probably closer to a 6 by itself but in comparison with the latest albums In Flames has been releasing, it earns bonus points for going into the right direction. FINALLY moving away from the Hard Rock edgy nonsense that the last few albums were: In Flames has returned with a surprisingly well mixed and well written album that even contain a few songs that I would consider stand out hits for Modern Melodic Death.

A fun, welcoming album into the mainstream of the EDM community with some actually impressive standalone songs like Summer. This album has beats and an aesthetic that is reminiscent of the "Happy Trap" genre, and almost feels like it was inspired by other in the genre like Wave Racer or Vindata. Vibrant, near irridescent visuals combined with the happy go luck vibe that Marshmello was presenting made this album release and tour an enjoyable experience for me.

This album would have been a zero had it not been for a few songs that carried some traits from the last album.

A heavier focus on the heavy aspects and ... read more

A welcome evolution to the symphonic progressive sound that Ne Obliviscaris created in their first album with a focus on creating almost classical-esque partitioning turning their albums into more of a singular movement of music, ebbing and flowing throughout the tracklisting to create a beautiful medley of ambient movements with soft instrumentation that transitions into harsh progressions with the incredible riffs created by Benjamin Baret and Matt Klavins and Xenoyr still remains one of the ... read more
