I know I'm probably in the minority here, but this is a musical direction that The Haunted shouldn't have taken. On the band's fifth full-length album The Dead Eye, they sound totally unfocused and appear to be aiming for experimentalism for the sake of it. There are people out there who don't want the same record twice or three times, I understand that much, but Jesus Christ on Mars! If it's not broke, don't bother fixing it at all, Haunted. A few amusing ideas as well as a brooding production job aren't enough to save this one from drowning in a lake of soulless mediocrity. Honestly speaking, the band could've had an easier time taking what they did on the last offering and amplifying its characteristics. Versus is this album's slightly better successor, although that's not implying much.
