The instrumental songs are very good as well.
Eric L. Willard
The song Helden is truly weird but I still liked it , you just have to listen to the whole thing before you realize how good it is.

I looked up the group, Apocalyptica, and watched the music video to "I Don't Care", then fell in love with the band!

Apocalyptica have delived another metal masterpiece with the Album Worlds Collide. There are several versions available including the 11 track standard, 11 track with bonus dvd (see european DVD description), the extra track japan with bonus tracks Lies, Ural, and Dreamer, and Japanese bonus track version with bonus japanese DVD with I'm not jesus, making of I'm not jesus, interview, japanese interview, live videos of Master of Puppets and Betrayal, and photo gallery. There is also the European deluxe edition with 2 bonus tracks of Ural and Dreamer, and the DVD minus the live videos and the japanese interview, and a 13 track european version with no dvd. Any version you get will be excellent. I got the European DVD version, and am very pleased.

From start to finish, this album has the tempo changes and the intensity that we have come to expect from the original compositions by this band, and also has the feature of a cover tune of the german version Heros by David Bowie sang by Rammmstein's lead singer. Also featured are tracks with Three days grace lead singer, Corey Taylor of Stonesour/Slipknot, and Christina Scabia of Lacuna Coil. These vocal tracks are all decent, but I'm still more interested in the music behind them. However, again, apocalyptica makes it work well. Plus, since the addition of drumming from the album reflections forward, Dave Lombardo of Slayer continues to guest on a few of the tracks. A nice booming addition to this already blistering line up. Tracks to play loud are "I'm not Jesus", "I Don't Care", and "Worlds Collide". Again, very good album for first timers to get, and a must for fans.

I have long been a fan of both heavy metal and classical music. I grew up listening to Black Sabbath, and later got into Dio and Metallica. My favorite classical music has to be anything with cellos in it. When I came across a video on YouTube earlier this year of four guys playing cellos covering a Metallica tune (Enter Sandman), I could hardly believe my ears (and eyes). Having checked out the CD that that track came from, Plays Metallica by Four Cellos and being blown away by it, I couldn't resist getting their new CD when it came out in April. I wasn't disappointed. APOCALYPTICA takes my experience of metal to a whole new level. Their chording and the way they phrase lines and modulate from key to key -- even the intervals they use -- makes this album a rich aesthetic experience. Driving, wailing, screeching, and bowing hard or soft and haunting as each composition demands, the music on "Worlds Collide" pushes the genre to new heights. The vocals add a nuance to the music not found on their earliest CD. The addition of the drums and other typical rock instruments only enhances the strangeness of the experience; this is a powerful world--one that you should really try out!

I love this cd, Apocalyptica has come a long way. I am extremely disappointed in the guest vocal tracks, even though I am a fan of 3 of the 4 vocalists.

The vocal tracks really kill the flow for me and they bring down Apocalyptica's potential. The vocal tracks are less dynamic and the lyrics are either hit or miss, they are a miss with me. Cristina Scabbia has a beautiful voice and I was thrilled to see that she contributed, but the song is too simple and the lyrics aren't very poetic. I couldn't even post the lyrics that bug me here for a reason. When I thought of the combination I had hoped for something much better. The only vocal track that seems to work for me is "Helden" featuring Till Lindemann and it's just a cover of "Heroes" by the Wallflowers.

The album is still great, I still gave it 4 stars for a reason. It's absolutely beautiful metal, I just wish there was more Apocalyptica and less awkward guest vocal tracks that seem to hold them down creatively.

I purchased the CD after hearing the song S.O.S ( anything but love ).
It was worth the price just for that song. The music is Haunting.
Cristina Scabbia , from Lacuna Coil, does the vocals.
She is amazing !!!! I give that song 4 stars !!!!
there are some other guests doing vocals on the cd that are very good as well. the rest of the songs are instrumentals, also good.

I really like the cd, I'm glad I purchased it & feel it was worth the price.
I'll be looking into getting more cd's from this artist.

Apocalyptica: Worlds Collide. First off, this is a great piece of musical art. Apocalyptica is the only band that I know of who truly pulls off the metal edge on classical music and with every successive album they only get better.

The tracks that really stand out on this album are: 1. Worlds Collide, 2. Grace, 7. Last Hope, 9. Burn (my new all time favorite), 11. Peace, 12. Ural, and 14. Dreamer.

The tracks that I really don't like are the tracks with singers, unfortunately; 3, 5, 8, and 10. That's why I can't give this album a perfect score, as much as I want to. On their previous albums the tracks with singers have been the standout excellent tracks to me, but on this one they're kind of whiny.

Overall, though, this is an excellent album. Buy it. Play it for your friends.
