Customer Reviews

One of best bands ever...

Carnival of Rust and Signs of Life are must-have albums. Marko's voice is edgy, yet musical with an impressive range. The band makes good use of driving rhymthms and pace changes, texture and layering, and complexity/interplay between the guitar melodies and the voice melodies.

There are few bands who produce music where almost all of songs are top notch, where you find yourself letting the entire album run start to finish, and not just getting locked into the one or two good songs.

Preview all of the albums and judge for yourself that it is definitely worth pushing the "Buy Album" button. The previews only show a short portion of the song, so there is much you will not hear without the entire song, as many of their songs go through multiple transitions, such as "Carnival of Rust" and "Lift", providing additional variety.

I really wish they had more main line exposure within the US. It would be interesting to see if even their older stuff would take off on the sales charts. Both albums have sold platinum in the sparsely populated homeland, Finland.

Finally in the US!!

Poets of the Fall is an excellent group, great voices, great sound, great music. Thanks iTunes for bringing them to the US for an affordable price!!!


This album came out on iTunes. Poets of the Fall are a really great band. You should buy this album for sure. It'll be worth it.
