Customer Reviews

Good, but not their best.

What I've always loved about Apocalyptica is the way this band has layered their Cellos. I love being able to hear the different instruments take different parts, i.e. someone playing a base line, someone playing the melody, etc.

In parts of this album, the genius of this layering is disappointingly eclipsed by the ferocity of the singers and/or the heaviness of the drum line. Don't get me wrong, I love hard, intense songs, but I think Apocalyptica lost some of their majestic quality with this album. When this band is at it's best, everything works together to create a sound so intense it's enough to make you shake. With this album, I find myself enjoying the songs, but not feeling nearly so *moved* by them as I have with other albums.

That said, there are some lovely moments:

'Broken Pieces' with Flyleaf's Lacey is sharp, darkly romantic, and bitter in a good way. The song doesn't soar like 'Hope Vol. II,' but it does resonate.

'Beautiful' is short, sentimental, and bittersweet. Featuring only the cellos, it's reminiscent of 'Farewell' and is a really gorgeous piece of music.

some of the more brutal songs are wicked awesome too, including the instrumental pieces 'Spiral Architect' and 'At the Gates of Manala.'

My favourite of the heavy songs on this album has to be Joseph Duplantier's contribution, 'Bring them to Light.' It's aggressive, loud, and a bit muddled in terms of instrumental clarity, but the singer takes the song to a higher level. Despite the aggression in the way he sings, the lyrics still shine through and it's the writing which makes this song gold. Very dark and brooding, and I really enjoyed it :)

I'm giving the album Four out of Five stars because I've seen Apocalyptica do better. A die hard fan should definitely buy the album, but the more casual listener should decide whether they lean more towards the 'metal' end or the 'classical' end and cherry pick their songs accordingly.

Amazing!

They've done it again! I just bought this, and would highly recommend it to anyone. Great songs... Never a let down! Nice job Apocalyptica :)
