In This Moment member, Howorth, describes the concept behind their 2008 album: 'The basic idea behind calling our new album The Dream is that inside dreams anything can happen, all the things that seem impossible or unreachable in the `real world' become a reality in your dreams. We've always been a band that believes in the power of dreams and that believing is creating. We wanted to make a record that you can lay down with, shut off the lights and have a total outerbody experience. We also wanted the record to be like a rollercoaster ride with explosive highs, beautiful lows and everything in between. Maria took her vocals to the next level and explored all the possibilities. Everyone will be surprised by all the melody, passion and strength she brings to the record.'

It is unfortunate that alot of the negative reviews focus on the bands move away from their metalcore sound rather than on the actual music. It is not a totally different sound than their previous efforts as some have said. They simply tried to do something different with their music and all of a sudden everyone starts screaming "sell-out." Hey metal fans, how about actually supporting these bands instead of bailing the second one tries something different. I find it ironic that after listening to metal for the last 20 years that metal fans still complain about other people not having an open mind but when one of their bands tries something different they go crazy.
This is still In this Moment. If you like songs like "Beautiful Tragedy", "the Legacy..", "He said Eternity", or "When the storm subsides" off BT then you'll love this album. If you prefer their harder stuff like "Ashes" or "Next Life" then you might be disappointed but at least give them credit for taking a chance and trying something different. Try and have an open mind and give these guys and other metal bands your support because they need and deserve it.
I think that this also proves their ability as a band to prove their worth by reaching out to many more people with their music. I think this improved their overall timing and togetherness as a band, and really pushed them onto the next album "Blood."
Many elements come together when you go softer and more melodic.
