Sonata Arctica known for their arctic seeming power metal take a slightly different turn with 5th studio album Unia, with what can only be described as a much warmer sound. The fast-paced nature has slowed down somewhat though not quite to the extent some would have you believe, yes the album is not filled with as many fast songs as Ecliptica or Silence, but when you consider the gradual transition made between each studio album, it's really not as great a jump as it could have been. The texture of the album is also much thicker and the overall sound has a much warmer tone. Opening with 'In Black and White' you can immediately spot the warmer tone, the thick ...

1. In Black And White - Nice opening track. Heavy riffing with some random choir backing vocals. Typical high pitched vocals work really well with the melodies. 2. Paid In Full - My favourite track on the album, Simple guitaring that works really well. 3. For The Sake Of Revenge - Very bassy beginning, simple drumming with a softer start 4. It Wont Fade - Opera-ish beginning. Thought it gets very good towards the end but not soon enough 5. Under Your Tree - Title sounds like a euphamism but a very good song nonetheless. 6. Caleb - Didnt really get this song, but for a general speed metal fan, itll be bareable 7. The Vice - Not Miami, ... Read the complete review

For Sonata Arctica this album is... unusual. Not they're the most normal band in the world to begin with, but this.... is plain wierd! I bought the album thinking it was going to be more of their trademark high speed power metal, but its really not... its more geared towards the technical side of things - changes from 4/4 to 3/4 and back again, lots of - as tony once put it - vocal masturbation, and suprisingly catchy lyrics. Most sonata albums in the past have simply grabbed your eardrums by the scruff of the neck and shaken them into submission while the pretty colours went off in your synapses. This one, on the other hand, takes a while to get settled ... Read the complete review

|Vibrato - Paul Gilbert||The Best Damn Thing - Avril Lavigne|
Too many to name
|New Wave - Against Me|
Highly energised, tightly packed slab of contemporary rock, with no indie influence in sight.
Relies on older styles as much as it forsakes the modern.

Good Well Written Songs

Some nice moments
Better off with the original songs
|Those Once Loyal - Bolt Thrower|
Return to form, with varied song styles.
Look past the surface and it's still essentially the same.
|Has Been - William Shatner|
High production values, the funny tracks are funny and the serious ones serious.
May be obscure for some people, Shatners spoken word style can be strange
|Haydamaky - Bohuslav|
Nice mix of folk and ska
Less rockier than Kobzar
