This is by far the most mature HIM album has put out to date. The lyrics are deeply moving, showing an almost acceptance to life, and what it may place in our paths. The good, the bad, happy, sad, painful, etc... This album almost says that life is not perfect, but it is just the way it is meant to be. Flaws, bumps in the road; they help us to grow as humans.
Musically the album is perfect. I am forever in awe of the talent these men possess. Such an electic mix, makes this album diverse and a joy to listen to.
Only one issue with the album... Ville's voice sometimes gets lost behind all the instruments. At times, I could hardly hear anything he sang. I don't know if they intentionally put the levels this way, but I would have liked to hear his voice clearer on all songs.
All in all, Tears on Tape is a fabulous album. Well written, beautifully performed, and intensely moving.
H.I.M. let's see...Hmmmmm...amazing! As always they exceed all expectations for a ninth album. More upbeat than the later later albums, combining the oldest and latest albums' best 'bits and bobs" and "add[ing] in a new, couple of spices" they definitely created what Ville says is "something that is worth while listening to, you know, from the beginning to the end."
"...a perverse combo, that makes it really H.I.M." --Ville Valo
