In sound they are totally going another way than before. It's not bad, but I liked the older In Flames more. A good album though. It's going to be fun to hear what comes next.

i dont understand this band. The Jester Race is one of my favorite albums of all time. its just incredibly well written and i hear landscapes in it...but its still fucking death metal and has great riffs. This...is shit. i dont like anything after Clayman

This is probably the most meh album I've ever heard.

Nothing's really abrasive but also nothing's really worthy of praise. It's just sounds like a blend of neutrality, executed in a way as bland and grey as the artwork.

Digging: Brian Eno - Ambient 4: On Land

I found Where the dead ship dwells to be easily the best song on here.

Abandoning your sound, which was widely praised, so you could follow whatever trend popped up next will generally garner you much hate.

I enjoy this album a good amount; All For Me, Where Dead Ships Dwell, A New Dawn, and Liberation are all really solid tracks.

Digging: Finch (US) - Say Hello to Sunshine

I just realized Soilwork is in the exact same boat as these guys. They were great for a few albums, sold out to trends and then tried to make a return to form.

True, since they were directly influenced by In Flames, but their first three albums (4 if you consider Natural Born Chaos to be good, but I see it as their descent) are killer and in the same genre

I like a Predator's Portrait a good deal but Soilwork were never on the same level as In Flames I don't think.

I consider them to be part of the Big 4 of Melodeath. In Flames, Dark Tranquility, At the Gates and Soilwork. Soilwork is the Anthrax of Melodeath.
