Guest review by

This was my first encounter with Amorphis and it didn't really turn out well. I heard that they were a Melodic Death Metal band, not knowing that they completely changed their style afterwards. As one would expect, I ended up disappointed with the progressive hard rock album I got and all its "emotions", so I hated it. However, having experienced severe love-life problems some time ago and feeling really melancholic and depressive, I couldn't listen to Carcass, could I, so I played this one again...

Rating: 6 Appelative as fuck, but the classic ''Alone'' and the saxophone on ''Veil of Sin'' makes the whole thing worthwhile.

Still prefer their early works thou.

Rating: 8 This album is extremely underrated. I wish people would give it the attention it deserves, because this truly is a gem!

Rating: 10 I couldn't agree more with you Dentura.

Killer album, not so easy listening compared to their latest work.

Rating: 10 Most likely my favourite by amorphis. Obviously for Pink Floyd / prog rock fans, not for close-minded people.

Rating: 9 Amazing album! maybe their best with their other singer who was awesome too! Alone, Shatters Within, Veil of Sin, Grieve Stricken Heart and Drifting Memories all are great songs!!!
