To be honest this CD is not Arch Enemy's best work although technically the guitar work is fantastic it lacks the bite of either wages of sin or anthems of rebellion.

Answering the singer question who is better Johan or Angela?

In my opinion it has to be Angela for one simple reason the live show, I have seen them at least 6 times and I must say that the sound is far clearer the performance more moving and the showmanship is far better than the Johan era (mainly because he also played bass live and so was rooted to the spot). having said that burning bridges is absoluely amazing particularly bridge of destiny!!

Well i've heard a few people say this is amazing now so i'm thinking of taking a trip to HMV and buying it. Even if it's not their best work, as long as it sounds good, which is what matters to me, who cares.

Although I think that this new album was pretty much the same old Arch Enemy and there's really nothing new on there, its still great!

Dont fix it if it ain't broken, right? wink.gif smile.gif

I thought the Neoclassical influence showed well on a few songs, and that wasnt anything they did on previous albums.

This album is such a great piece of work! I do not think it's the best AE album so far, but it certainly is amazing.
To be honest, I don't like Johan Liiva's vocals, I think he's trying too hard. Angela is far better.
Arch Enemy has never disappointed me, and never will. So I really look forward seeing them live soon. wink.gif

Excellent review UnCreator. By excellent, I mean that your views perfectly paralleled mine laugh.gif This is my favorite album, and has been ever since I first heard it. It's an album that blows you away right off the bat, but even more so the more you listen to it. It's so inspiring, in fact, that I've been learning every song on the album and now I only have a couple left. I even bought the issue of Young Guitar with the Amott brothers showing off some of the new riffs so I could make sure to learn at least those ones accurately! I think that this, along with Nile's "Ithyphallic", is not only best metal album of the year, but perhaps of the century!

And on Angela's vocals... I find them to be improved, personally. The lyrics are deeper, and I think her vocals are overall more dynamic. I love when she does that kinda... hissy-gurgley-scream thing (that description makes it sound horrible, i know, buts its the only way i could explain it).

I'm not even going to comment on the guitars... since it's Arch Enemy, nothing needs to be said... incredible melodies, incredible solos, beautiful harmonies... its all here.

Just a quick update: If this album was a woman, I'd marry it.

Yes, I'm STILL obsessed with it. I REALLY think that Angela's vocals are better on this album, there's so much more life to them, so much more organic and dynamic and just.. whoa.

Not only one of the best melodic death metal records ever, it's THE MOST INCREDIBLE Guitar-based music you'll hear this year. Definately the best Arch Enemy LP so far...




...cool review by the way

For those of you who haven't already seen it, the video for "I Will Live Again" FINALLY aired on headbangers ball and youtube which you can see here.

Delicious is all i can say.

Oh, and I've made it to the final song "Vultures" in my quest to learn all of the songs on the album... and what a finale it is! 5 challenging solos to somehow memorize...
