Guest review by
Soilwork - Stabbing The Drama

When I first started listening to Metal beyond the alternative sections with which I started, Melodic Death was probably the style that most easily got my attention. Soilwork was among the causes, at that time they had just released "Natural Born Chaos" and I listened to it constantly. Looking back to what they had done before that was a clear step ahead to a more produced and less heavy sound that actually made Soilwork stand out between many other acts playing the same, they created a sound of their own. In the following work, "Figure Number Five," they continued their evolution, towards a more accessible and alternative formula, but that was never an obstacle for me and I still rate it high.

I do enjoy this album, even to this day. No one writes catchy choruses quite like Soilwork did. Gotta love Speed's clean vocals too. Shame about the records after this (suppose the newest one wasn't too bad though).

It's still amazing though that every version I've heard has the fuck up with the song transition from Crestfallen to Weapon of Vanity. Thought it was just the version I had on CD ages ago.

I really dig this one. It's pretty good album for me. Some catchy songs, maybe less melodic, but still good. One thing - I wanted more keyboards
