Re: Children of Bodom - Relentless, Reckless, Forever

Decent for me on your scale. Better than Blooddrunk but still far from Something Wild and Hatebreeder.

Hatebreeder was and is really good, i'll agree. I haven't listened to Something Wild enough to form an opinion on that however.

It sounds like it is a huge improvement over the last two but as Bob said can't hold a candle to the first two.

3/5 Decent ....or pretty good in my terminology

Excellent I say, especially compared to Blooddrunk which was average.

Easily.

I listened to Blooddrunk the other day, had it on my iPod through chance, and I couldn't listen to enough of it. It was fine on first listen, but other than that, it's just not good.

This album is probably my top 3 Children of Bodom albums to date.

The one issue I have is that this album only just clocks over 30 minutes, a bit short for a melodic death metal album.

^^ Something Wild and Hatebreeder are REALLY good!! :grinthumb

Don't forget Follow The Reaper. :grinthumb
That's the best of the lot for mine.


Months later, I love this album a lot more after each listen.
