5.0 out of 5 stars As good as Rareform? April 1, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
You may find the number of tracks on this album a little off-putting, as eight songs might not seem worth paying a tenner for. However, if you like the sort of progressive trash/death/metalcore that ATB are famous for, this is definitely something to get. There are similarities to their previous works, the chugging rhythms, the ridiculous shredding (they use 8-string guitars! EIGHT!), the almost-but-not-quite breakdowns and the seemingly random transitions between 4:4, 3:4, 7:8 and 9:8 timing conjuring plenty of nostalgic memories of Rareform and Forging A Future Self. ATB have done a bit of musical innovation, though; with the odd bit of clean vocals, which might not be everyone's tastes, and more melody in the first few tracks. In Dreams makes for a interesting listen, as ATB have given some of the songs oddly ambient parts, which work beautifully. One of the reasons for the eight tracks is that there's no "filler" that is often inevitable for long albums. All the tracks are impeccably written and played, with the riffs never becoming boring and all the songs are memorable, my favourite being track two, "Your Troubles Will Cease And Fortune Will Smile Upon You". My only whinge is that the mixing on the album isn't perfect, with the vocals a little loud sometimes, almost dominating, same with the drums, to a lesser extent (none of the dreaded snare-echo though, thank god), and the guitars' mid frequencies get drowned out occasionally. The bass is sometimes completely inaudible, but that's not unusual for bands of this genre (in fact, there's a really cool slap-bass riff in the first minute or so of track eight, Encased In Ice, which is really pleasing to hear as a bassist). But really, with the negatives I'm nit-picking there, and it's hardly noticable. This album is absolutely great. In answer to the title of this review, it's probably better than Rareform. Buy it. Buy it now.

I was really anticipating this release from the pre-prod videos they had released. Well... I guess I was anticipating they would do a bit more with it composition-wise.

The album as a whole:
I really like it, mostly. It's in a different realm than Rareform or FOAFS. However, I take it that they were 'in rareform' when they wrote that album because it showed off some excellent songwriting ability and distinctness that they could bring to the table. However, with this release, that is almost completely gone in favor of a slightly more generic songwriting approach, still with their attitude as a band. The production is far beyond their first release, FOAFS, and differs pleasantly from Rareform enough to make it refreshing. In a way though, it remains to be seen if this is their cue to try and hop into the 'djent' bandwagon (which I see as being already far too overloaded before it began) or if it's some kind of transitional period as they grow with their new front man (and introduction of clean singing, which, for the record, I do enjoy when used well.) The solo work as always, is excellent throughout, though there is much less of the crazy melodic-oriented song passages ATB fans have come to know and love.

The songs:
The first track kicks off to a great start but reveals some of the awkward song transitions later to come throughout the album... Your Troubles is one of the better examples of their ability to write in a way that gets you hooked and in the moment, especially live. Pendulum is different, because it's the first of several that introduces clean singing to their repertoire. I really, really love how it's used in this track... but... it sounds absolutely more and more terrible as the album goes on, especially in track 7 of 8, Promises Kept.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid album November 27, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I discovered this band by link jumping on Amazon... Rareform is amazing, Forging A Future Self is great as well (though the sound quality is lacking). In Dreams is a great album as well and I highly recommend it. It does seem to chill out a little bit on the really technical guitar work compared to Rareform, but it still has its moments. It's brutal and melodic and the sound quality is great.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Album January 19, 2011
Format:Audio CD
This albumn its entirty is awesome, but the only song I do not love is "Promises Kept." I feel it is to light but other than that this album is pretty solid. I Just keep listening to it again and again. Don't get me wrong the album before this is very brutal and I love it but I feel there is something special about this album. I give it a 4.5 but would give it a five if not for "Promises Kept."

4.0 out of 5 stars ATB Back In the Saddle November 23, 2010
By MTTS
Format:Audio CD
It's been awhile since the Twin-Cities band After The Burial really showed any new content to fans. With the excellent release of Rareform(opinions may differ on which was better)this album was much anticipated. The group is one of the very rare exceptions in metal who can right excellent leads AND rhythm.

In contrast, ATB exercised this proficiency of lead guitar prowess to it's maximum on their previous effort "Rareform." Where we find "In Dreams" is a much more precise display of song structure and rhythm. It's a very different flavor, but still essentially what we've come to love of this group. I will say that it took me a good 4-5 listens of the album to really nod my head and say, "ok, it's different but good."

As stated previously by another reviewer, this will be for ATB what "A Higher Place" was for Born Of Osiris. It's just not the same kind of technical style. Which in my haste I was ready for Rareform pt.II but "In Dreams" has a great weight all it's own. Their vocals are wonderful, although I was one of the few who enjoyed Grant's contribution to the previous effort.

If you are looking for a well thought out, technical but melodic album that has hooks and knows how to really hook, this is the album for you. Much more accessible to a first time listener and overall a very solid album, if not a bit short.

I feel this is a great precursor for them and the next record will likely show a greater technicality and structure than we've yet seen.

MN I salute you!

4.0 out of 5 stars An Alright Album
This album was alright. I'd recommend you check it out at least once. I know it won't be some people's cup of tea, but the more you listen to it, the better it is.

I don't understand the negative reviews out on the web. This is a very strong album and, as you get older (40ish) you'll start to appreciate more melodic metalcore. Read more
