      Dark Tranquillity's third album (1997).

      Although a reasonable album in its own right, the unfortunate successor to the excellent 'The Gallery' turned out to be a letdown, and ultimately a forgotten entry in the Dark Tranquillity canon after being overshadowed by its controversial successor. While it lacks the ambition and execution of 'The Gallery,' this is still a forward-looking album that increases the melodic elements even further, but at the same time lacks direction in its heavier aspects, which now sound less passionate and more mechanical, even down to the vocals.

      Without any real classics to its name, there are still enough decent offerings here to make this a worthwhile listening for melodic death metal fans. 'Constant' and 'Still Moving Sinews' incorporate great lead guitars, while 'Tidal Tantrum' even borders on folk metal. Unfortunately, what stand out more are the failed attempts to recapture past successes, most evident in the comparatively bland opening track 'Dreamlore Degenerate' that paves the way for the next album, and the progressive 'Insanity's Crescendo' that only ends up sounding like an inferior version of the final track from the previous album.

      1. Dreamlore Degenerate
      2. Zodijackyl Light
      3. Hedon
      4. Scythe, Rage and Roses
      5. Constant
      6. Dissolution Factor Red
      7. Insanity's Crescendo
      8. Still Moving Sinews
      9. Atom Heart 243.5
      10. Tidal Tantrum
      11. Tongues
      12. The Mind's Eye
