Love Metal [Universal]

All Music Guide - Rob Theakston
A lot of people have the propensity to give H.I.M. unnecessary doses of grief simply because of the band's friendship and professional allegiance to pro skater Bam Margera.

For die-hard fans, this is the album H.I.M. has been struggling to make and realize for quite a while, and even the aforementioned detractors of the group would be well served by giving this record a spin. [The 2005 Universal edition returned to the CD's original, ten-track format.]

    Amazing Album

    This brought out what I thought was a slightly different side to H.I.M. It was awesome to just sit and listen to this for hours because the cd is so soothing I guess you could say, that I wanted to do nothing but listen to this over and over again.

    The HIM experience

    Poetic lyrics, couched in Gothic Imagery, tell of sexual love that dooms us to heartbreak. It is inevitable. You can't be blamed, and are forgiven. The tone, empathetic with female sexuality, seduces you. The intricately orchestrated hard rock enthralls you. The sweet voice comforts you. The artist's beauty saves you. You are loved.
