I actually prefer newer In Flames to older In Flames. I've never listened to a full album of their melodeath stuff. This song is alright. I would say Sounds Of A Playground Fading is one of my favorite albums to listen to, but that also might be because I was probably dropped as a baby, and brains I lack.

Not horrific, not great. Still can't wait for the whole album to drop.

He's trying to justify his belief that the newer In Flames is better than the old. Even though Reroute to Remain is my favorite IF album, their older albums are better than the majority of the newer ones.

They both played that "Gothenburg sound" just with varying degrees of melody. If u want consistency then ATG were better but IF were open to changing shit up and I guess their fans just wanted a consistent run of albums from them which is what their older stuff offered. I wasn't the biggest fan of their older material, big deal.
