There's a few great songs on Sounds of a Playground Fading. I can listen to it all the way through too unlike A Sense of Purpose.

Lol when I first listened to this band it was all ASOP and one song from Come Clarity, then later SOAPF. Didn't even know what their golden era sounded like until this year. SC is pretty average but I still like their 2000s material pretty well.

Hasn't clicked with me enough to give it anything higher but it's pretty close. I prefer most of Dark Tranquillity's discog to anything by In Flames though.

This is not death metal this is pop metal. Just a terrible album that just plods and plods and plods. From the wimpy forgettable riffs to the generic vocals, pedestrian drumming, and non-existent bass. There are no memorable moments to be found on this album. So fucking boring.

These laughably bad melodeath bands are more about the hooks then the riffs, but the hooks aren't even good. Just listen to Moonshield which repeats the hook over and over. Is hearing it so many times suppose to make the song better?

Stale, bland, and uninspired songwriting can sum up The Jester Race.

Anyone who thinks this is a masterpiece is delusional.

Listen to Heartwork instead.

fun facts: In Flames was my favourite band for all of high school and still one of my favourite bands, I have never heard this or Whoracle in full and the only In Flames I haven't heard. :]
