Editorial Reviews

Although In Flames have still yet to achieve great success in North America, the Swedish band, over the past decade, has become one of the most revered, yet highly scrutinized metal acts in the world. With as many high quality releases as the band has put out, the fans demand excellence every time out, and with Soundtrack to Your Escape, In Flames continue to hold up their end of the bargain. Nuclear Blast. 2005.

Customer Reviews

Why are they trying to sound like Korn.
Amazon Customer
The bands new album is a very different album when it comes to sound, but nothing is different about the effort they put into this album.
J.B.
Fans of In Flames new or old will enjoy this album very much.

Well, well, well...it's been 2 short years since In Flames graced the metal community with REROUTE TO REMAIN. In that time, the album has become one of the most reviled, mocked and generally slandered releases to come from a band who once were held in the highest regard. At The Gates and In Flames set the standard for European melodic death and with the former's quick demise in the mid-90s, In Flames soldiered on, carrying the torch and blessing metalhead's ears with such landmark releases as THE JESTER RACE and WHORACLE. Then something changed. The band decided to lean more towards the melodic than the death beginning with 1998's COLONY and by the time REROUTE TO REMAIN came out, they were almost a shadow of their former selves. The band had embraced some of the worst elements of the North American nu-metal movement causing many of their fans to turn on them, and metal in general used the CD as a punchline. It looked as if In Flames had, indeed, been snuffed out.
With their new CD, SOUNDTRACK TO YOUR ESCAPE, expectations are higher than ever leaving many to wonder if the band will finally listen to their critics (and, more importantly, their fans) and take a more traditional approach to the songs. There are some songs that hearken back to what made In Flames so original: the dual guitar interplay, the intricate patterns and death-style vocals. Unfortunately, much of what went wrong on REROUTE TO REMAIN still exists and sadly, that will overshadow the positive.
The first track, "F(r)iend," starts off well enough and things sound good with a speedy riff and aggressive, though not "true," death vocals. It is with the second track (and first single), "The Quiet Place," that the ugly Korn influences trickle in.

First off let me say just listen to this album yourself from a friend or through buying it or w/e before making an opinion about it. This album along with Reroute to Remain took a lot of trash from old school In Flames fans who felt that In Flames sold out with this album. While I cannot deny the elements of sell out within their newer music neither can I deny the blant fact that they were looking to make something new not Jester Race 2 or Clayman 2 and also they went somewhat experimental. This album is most certainly not like their older work yes melody is still here for sure but the instrumentals have taken a backseat I would say or sort of share the spotlight with Anders vocals. The album has some killer tracks and then lacks in others. Listen for yourself one things for certain its a change from their older work but it is still deff good music however deff not something I listen to a whole lot. But still good the polished production is at times very very lovely and at other times just annoying. I personally liked the album and thought it was good. Its just not a mind blowing classical like their earlier releases. Lets leave it at this, In Flames will be remembered for Jester Race, Whoracle and not this album but that doesnt mean this isnt still good music.

Apparently some people can never deal with the fact that some bands actually try to evolve their sound over time (no I'm not talking about Metallica - Load). I've been a fan of In Flames for 4 years now, and I still think every one of their albums deserves at least 4 stars.

STYE is a continuation of what the band tried with RTR. Nu-metal? Hardly. For one, it doesn't suck like any of the crap I hear on the radio here in the U.S., but I do have to admit it does have some "nu-metal" type elements. These aren't exactly bad, they add to the music. After all, who said nu-metal couldn't be done "right"?

This whole Korn comparison is complete BS too. I'd like to see Head (now left Korn because he found Jesus) or Munky write interludes of the same calibre Jesper and Bjorn can still write. And if you're complaining about Anders' vocals, apparently you didn't hear him on Clayman or RTR. His current vocal style has been in-development for quite a few years now. There should be no surprises here!

All-in-all, STYE is an album that has grown on me as another reviewer put it. Like many, I was skeptical of In Flames' "newer" sound, but it's still far superior to anything Korn, Linkin Park, System of A Down, (insert any crappy nu-metal band's name here) can come up with.

STYE may not be their most solid effort, but it's still a good listen. If you can listen to this album with an open mind and not long for the days of Jester Race or Whoracle (2 very high-quality albums), then you should be able to enjoy it. Otherwise face it people, the In Flames of the "old" era don't seem to be coming back. If you can't deal with that, either stop listening or stop complaining!

I was pretty surprised when I first heard this CD. Anders' vocal capabilities are stretching (more clean vocals this time around, remiscent to Reroute to Remain), the dual guitar solos are lacking (a main component to In Flames, in my opinion), and Daniel's drum tracks are dominating throughout the entire ride. However, this album is still very heavy and 'in your face', something that has kept with In Flames since the beginning. I think the band was going for something more mainstream with this release, which would probably explain "The Quiet Place", a track that has apparently hit the Euro-charts.
For long time fans, this might be a disapointment. Being a fan since Colony, I enjoyed this album. However, when reaching the 8th track, it seems like you've heard the whole album already. Not too much variety. For you guitar techies, all songs are in drop Bb, and the same 4 or 5 chords are played extensively throughout the album. Then again, In Flames has already played in a minor scale successfully, but it seems like they're missing something when compared to their earlier material.
For people new to In Flames, they will probably be relatively pleased.
As mentioned before, the dual guitars are lost, occasionally showing up in tracks like 'Dead Alone', 'In Search For I', and 'Dial 595-Escape', but you can hear them briefly throughout the album. To me, Jesper and Bjorn are excellent guitarists, but they don't seem to show their talent too much. Solos do show up occasionally as well in 'F(r)iend', 'Evil In A Closet', 'In Search For I', 'Borders and Shading', and 'Dial 595-Escape', but again, not as impressive as their earlier accomplishments.
In my opinion, it's worth giving a listen to if you're a Flames fan (don't worry, it's not the 'St. Anger' of In Flames albums :-P ). It's still an enjoyable Euro-metal album, but may not be up to par with earlier in Flames releases or other bands such as Children of Bodom or Predator's Portrait-era Soilwork.
