I somewhat enjoyed Sounds of a Playground Fading, it had some pretty good tracks (I actually think A New Dawn is one of their best songs) which stood out among the rest of the crap and I liked it better than A Sense of Purpose, so I expected something at least decent. But nope, this is pretty much like Sounds of... but without those good tracks so you're just left with 3 OK songs, 6 bad songs and 2 terrible ones in my opinion.

It often happens that the singles released before the album are the most commercial (and sometimes worst) songs in there. Well, Through Oblivion is in fact the worst song In Flames has ever written, but Rusted Nail is actually one of the best on this album, so that's saying something about the quality of this release.

Not gonna take long to review this. I've honestly heard worse but this is a 2.5 at best and some of the moments are really bad, there's okay stuff here but it's really sparse

That opening of Dead Eyes...so good. Wish I could hear a strictly instrumental version of the song because the guitars haven't lost their touch.

I think no one can complain about their competence playing-wise. They all can play their instruments really well, but that's not something we've learned from this album, we've known it for years. The problem is that the songwriting is incredibly monotonous and uninspired, and the hooks that "modern" In Flames used to have aren't there either. I don't mind them not playing melodic death metal anymore as long as whatever they play sounds good, and up to now they more or less did it for me. But except for a few select moments I'm finding absolutely nothing remarkable in this album.

This is just a mess. The production is muddy and the songs sound like the worst part of Soundtrack and Purpose.

You claim that it ''doesn't deserve the hate it's getting'', so you should clarify this first.

This is too accessible that it doesn't really require many listens to sink in. I think it's a poor album
that shows nothing of interest apart from some guitar work. The vocals are just terrible.

Okay I'll play along I was going to put in a full review but between work et cetera I'll be pushed to get it done.

Siren Charms does not deserve this level of hate because the opinions on it are ill-conceived and brought about from "hopping on a band wagon". Simply this album is let down by a mismatched production and a simplistic same-iness. Anders vocals don't play as big as a part when compared to the group's previous records. The quasi cleans actually suit this semi minimalist, commercial tone. I'll admit that the drums are rather uninspired and could use more attention come studio time.

Say what you will about In Flames progression of sound, at least it is exactly that.
