Jester Race is an overrated but solid heavy/powerish metal album (with terrible vocals, Anders is awful). The last two albums have some goddamn catchy modern rock, don't care what anyone says. Everything else... meh.

So you like the last two albums better than their other shit? What. The. Fuck.



And how is Anders so different from the majority of the other growlers, fuck it's nothing special but neither are the majority of those type of vocalists.

Scratch that, my bad, I meant Reroute to Remain and Come Clarity. Soundtrack to Your Escape was almost entirely bad.

And yeah, because the two albums I just mentioned have some degree of enjoyability--catchy, chorus-driven modern rock that sounds good to me is preferable to just bad Maiden rehashes that don't make much sense or grab me in any way. Neither is really very artful or important, but hey, I don't really listen to In Flames.

And Anders' old stuff sounds awful to me. He's like the death growl equivalent of whining. He more or less pulls off the hardcore/modern rock style well nowadays I think, though.

I've never had a problem with In Flames' music, but the vocals have always gotten to me.
Anyway, I strongly recommend Mercenary to fans of that particular style of metal, it's basically melodic death metal, but the vocals are just as much clean as death, and the singer can sing quite well actually. Pick up "11 Dreams", tis a good album. Not particularly "up my alley" but still worth checking out for some of its great tracks.

I think that all In Flames albums up to Colony (especially Whoracle and Colony ) are great. I also like Come Clarity. I really don't like the RTR and STYE . I never stopped likin' em. It's some great stuff.
