Staff review by

If some of you are die hard fans of the times when Dark Tranquillity used to play real death metal, then you don's have to read further, because this album is the more likely to disturb you. Some would call them sellouts, would cry for the nostalgy of the fast riffs and the flow of violence that you could find on Skydancer or on The Gallery, or even insult them because of the clean vocals and the piano parts, but for myself I think I'm going to talk about evolution and about the courage of a band that has not been afraid to lose a part of their fans just to explore a new side of the metal spectrum... This is an artistic move, that even if it cannot be understood by all, at least it has to be respected.

Rating: 9 I have a soft spots for bands that dare to go against the expectations of their fans and pursue their own way of art. That's why I love Dark Tranquillity and I love this album. Besides, if I ever decide to put down my own list of top 10 most beautiful metal albums, Projector will definitely be on it.
