Editorial Reviews

In This Moment continue to carve out their own unique and exhilarating chapter in the Hard Rock genre. This group is collectively defined by their undying belief in themselves and this confidence and strength is conveyed perfectly through their new material. A Star-Crossed Wasteland was produced once again with acclaimed producer Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Five Finger Death Punch) and the results are game-changing. The foundation is now in place for In This Moment to catch fire in a big way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Who do you listen to? July 28, 2010
Format:Audio CD
The reviews I've read for this record have been all over the board. Some think it's worthless and others think ITM has put out their best record to date. So I'll try to stick to the facts and leave opinion out of it as much as possible.
1. This record really is a good mix of their last two records, which are quite different from each other. This includes the fact that there is a mix of screaming and clean vocals.
2. Some of the songs will seem cheesy, mostly lyrically, but even musically (Gunshow, for example), but they DO fit into the overall theme of the album.
3. There is some good songwriting mixed in with some more generic aspects. If you're looking for some kind radical new sound, you probably won't find it here.
4. Building on #3, Maria Brink's screaming vocals have a special kind of emotional intensity. You may not appreciate them like I do, but it's an assault on my ears that I only find in certain bands.
5. There are some more radio-friendly songs on this record - I said "more" - not "completely." This is not automatically a bad thing, unless the band's forcing these out just to try to make radio playlists. Again, judge for yourselves.
6. If you dislike screaming lyrics, don't get this record, and if you ONLY like screaming lyrics, you might not want to get this album.
7. Some reviewers have stated their opinions that ITM is trying to be like Evanescence. I think it's possible they were just experimenting with moving in a direction that melds different aspects of their sound and moves forward in whatever direction it takes them.
8. Some reviewers don't like the mixture of the male/female vocal parts on the record. I like them at some times more than others, but they don't make or break the record for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars very hit and miss - some people will love it October 22, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I know my opinions may differ from those of most fans of In This Moment, so let me start with some background info. I'm a fan of metal in general, especially the prog and power scenes from Europe, and a bit of black metal, too. I'm a huge fan of many female-fronted metal bands including Nightwish, Lacuna Coil, Katra, Delain, Leaves eyes, etc. I consider In This Moment a band of which I am a fan, as well.

I thought their first album was pretty decent for the most part. I'd skip over maybe half the songs when listening to it in my car, but the other half were good. This album was a good introduction for me to Maria's singing style.

I liked their second album a bit better.

I recently got the album A Star Crossed Wasteland and was excited to listen to it since I really like some of their other stuff. Overall, I felt that it was very hit or miss. Here's my review of the tracks:

01 - The Gun Show - 1/10. Terrible. Oddly enough, I know many people love this song. I felt it was boring (same bass note for pretty much the entire thing, verse and chorus, don't you guys get bored of that? That's like Limp Bizkit's formula). Very southern-rock inspired plus Maria's trademark screaming lyrics. If that's your thing, you'll love it. I didn't. I don't like southern rock and I don't like screaming for no reason.

02 - Just Drive - 7.5/10. Right off the bat this song is better than The Gun Show. More melody and harmony in the first 15 seconds than in the entire previous song. In fact this song is infinitely more complex and better written than the previous one. Vocal harmonies, better chord progression yet still aggressive. Combination of screaming and singing vocals, and I think it works well.

03 - The Promise - 7.5/10.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome wasteland... August 31, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is a brilliant album. The Dream was good. Beautiful Tragedy was fantastic but this Star Crossed Wasteland is awesomely brilliant. Amazingly it took me many listening to come to this conclusion. Now I am looking forward to a ITM DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars ITM: A Star-Crossed Wasteland July 13, 2010
By C. Bach
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I believe this album tops anything this band has done. There is an element similar to Five Finger Death Puch here, with their guitar solos. One thing that floored me in the best sense of the word was Maria and Chris's working together. She'll sing, he'll scream; they will switch; they'll duet with him backing her. It is an amazing effect. There is a flavor in their melodic parts that brings back the flavor of their second album. The only thin I looked for is the way she used her voice on the first album, and other than the great use of screaming vocals, I didn't really find it. Her voice, when singing, becomes sweeter on these second and third albums. But this change doesn't detract in any way, shape, or form from this album. It is way over the top of their albums. Isn't there a saying about how the whole is greater than the sum of the two halves? This applies to their two older albums, their flavor and style, and when brought together they produce a powerful masterpiece. The song that I feel epitomizes this is "Iron Army". There is the addition of some excelent orchestra here, reminiscent of the South American band Six Magics.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not great September 4, 2013

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is good and a few songs are amazing, but I think In This Moment really comes into their own and develops their style on the Blood album.
