It all depends on who you’re talking to, but personally, I find the new In Flames single “Deliver Us” to be better than expected. It’s certainly not the greatest thing they’ve released (obviously), but it’s certainly not the worst. It sounds on par with Soundtrack to Your Escape‘s material, what with the overt electronic tones. I’m going to withhold a bunch of my judgment until I hear the whole album, but I’m not too disappointed so far. What do you folks think? It is a bit poppy, but come on – we’ve seen it coming.
Sounds of a Playground Fading is due out June 15th on Century Media.
