Sounds of a Playground Fading

Sounds of a Playground Fading by In Flames
Released: Nov 2013
Label: Century Media
Given the seeming breakup-song bent of several lyrics (inspirational verse: "You never understand me! And I don't care what you think! Or maybe I do!"), the "Playground" in these once-death-metallic Swedes' 10th album title doesn't seem to signify abandoned jungle gyms so much as a loss Glen Campbell once lamented in "Where's the Playground Susie." Decorated in minor-key-melodic intros and on-and-off electronic body beats, In Flames sound pretty sad all through -- also pretty same-y, though it's sort of special when they enter extreme hermit mode in "The Attic" and the talked "Jester's Door."
