A Sense of Purpose is often regarded as a half finished mess of an album and probably the worst release from In Flames to date, take that as you will.


well thanx for the input, I really appreciate it. You do remember that I stated that this was the first In Flames album that I have heard, right? I have not heard any of their other albums and thus, have nothing really to compare.

But if you say that this is their weakest album, well so be it. Who am I to argue.

I've been listening to The Jester Race the past few weeks, so I'm moving onto another album now and I chose Reroute to Remain... Those choruses... kinda strange, but not terrible haha
If you're playing music to get attention then you're forgetting the purpose of music

Picked up Clayman. Now I've got everything from Jester Race to Clayman, and I think I'm done with In Flames "Collection" (I can get into few tunes from Come Clarity sometimes, I don't bother with anything else. I think the name "reroute to remain" in itself is really an obvious warning of "selling out", why else would they choose that name o.O )

This album is really produced beautifully. Ander's clean vocals sound very introverted and weak, but everything else is very powerful, and his harsh vox in this album are great. In Flames seems to get a lot of piss for being flowery and stuff, but I think of them more as a rock band to be honest hahaha. Great melodic leads, riffs, and solid musicianship all around. Sounds a lot better than the mp3's I had

Clayman is a very nice album indeed, I like it a lot. It's full of well-composed, coherent songs and soothing yet catchy melodies.

I'm starting to think I'm the only person on the planet who genuinely enjoys Anders vocal style

Pretty sure you are.

Regardless, I have nothing to contribute aside from the usual snarky ness. Everything after Clayman has just been varying degrees of awful.

That said though, I cant really listen to any of their material anymore.

It's like Fenriz and J. Read

"I'm so happy to love metal and stuff"

"I AM metal"

I can enjoy their newer stuff but i don't see them as a melodic death metalband today. It's a sad story to see them turning away from the music they made once but to be honest: If a unknown band would have made one of their later albums nobody would call it bad. I think the reason why so many people hate their newer stuff is just the fact that it isn't like "Lunar Strain" anymore.
#3207
I think it's that it isn't like The Jester Race to Clayman, which is generally speaking their most overtly melodic material. Most accessible and least heavy without the silly lyrics or compromising any supposedly 'true' credentials

Alright, I'll give them a try, Japanese Black Speed rarely disappoints.

Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.

Is Clayman still a metal album? It's one of my favourites but I do wonder sometimes.

Why wouldn't it be? O_o

Clayman has my favorite solo of theirs, Suburban Me.

Whenever I show my girlfriend in flames she says it sounds like anime fight scenes xD I think a lot of their flashy leads and melodies owe more to "shred rock" than extreme metal. I don't know, I guess I like thinking of Colony/ Clayman as aggressive melodic rock instead of "soft" extreme metal
#3213
I feel like back when it first came out, I understood why people were disappointed Playground Fading; but now I can't seem to figure it out. Other than The Attic and that one other song I can't remember the name of, it isn't extremely different.

The way those Melodeath bands did their solos, chorus's, and lead lines made me think of anime fight scenes so that's what turned me on to them.

No shame.

I believe this same exchange happened between Duncan and I many years ago
#3216
I listened through Clayman while stoned

and yes, Suburban Me has a sick solo

I think the solo in The Hive is my fav though.
#3217
To me Brush the Dust Away is one of the best tracks on that album and completely underrated.

Lol hey Duncan. Just lurkin' a lot lately. Trying to find time to contribute a bit more around here. I see you're still runnin' a tight ship.
