H.I.M.'s Razorblade Romance was a huge step from the poppy yet raw Greatest Lovesongs, and so their reputation as teenage-girl entertainers began to grow. That was very unfortunate for the old fans of H.I.M., as Razorblade Romance marks the beginning of H.I.M.'s more polished pop era. Deep Shadows and Brilliant Highlights plunges deeper. The songs lack hooks, the sound is just way too clean, and as the highlights (the tracks "In Joy and Sorrow" and "Pretending") are over before the halfway point, as a whole Deep Shadows doesn't quite satisfy.

this is a great cd with great songs. If you are truly a HIM fan you'll love it.
the songs are incredible. to be honest, most HIM fans would say that this isnt the best HIM album and actually, its not. but that doesnt matter. its still a great album and if your a HIM fan, u should get it. plus its not nearly as expensive as other websites are selling it for.
This is another great album by HIM this is definately a good album to get your hands onto especially if your a HIM fan and have never heard this album before.
