When this ever-changing ex-Death Metal outfit from the land of the thousand lakes released works like Tuonela and Am Universum some fans were disappointed, some others angry, and many just turned their backs on these guys. Well, in some degree I understand why the fans were disappointed, if you go from Death Metal to Hard Rock you're bound to lose some fans, but many failed to see that Amorphis may not be a Death Metal band, but it still manages to sound fresh and surprise many people when they release a new album.

Now I for one am a big fan of Amorphis' work, as they are one of my favorite bands; albums such as Skyforger (my first Amorphis album), Am Universum, and Elegy have wowed me the first time I listened to them and are among my favorite albums ever made. However, this band was in a bit of an awkward position with the release of Far From The Sun nearly ten years ago, as they appeared not to be on top of their songwriting and performance skills this time around.

Rating: 8 It actually isn't the worst album ever made.. the bonus tracks and the acoustic version of Far From The Sun are good too. A fun last album with Pasi Koskinen before the band moves back to a heavier and more traditional sound.

Rating: 6 While I do consider this to be their worst album, I don't feel that this album is all that bad. It is pretty alright actually. Day of Your Beliefs is one of the best songs they've ever made though.

Rating: 5 I really like the guitar sound, but man was that boring!

  Very underrated from my of view...it deserves at least a 7.5...it's a very nice album...those melodies, that voice, and those little touches of progressive sound the band always had, surprised me...it just needs a little more attention to listen, not a easy one to enter at the first tries!!

Love the band!!! \m/
