Backgrund[eedit | eedit soorce]

This album markit keyboardist Sven Karlsson's first attempts at sangwritin for the baund. While it is no necessarily interconnectit wi the keybuirdist sangwritin, this album featurs mair uise o the keybuird an lichter melodies. The album is considered a mair commercial soond bi maist fans o Swadish daith metal, but it arguably gies the muisic a broader appeal. Housomeivver, vocalist Björn Strid haes said the album haes guid melodies but lacks in intensitie an coud'e been better componed; mony fans an creetics considered the album "rushed".[2]

Muisic videos wur made for the sangs "Rejection Role" an "Light the Torch." In Flames appeared in the "Rejection Role" video, which featurt the twa baunds bein seemingly hostile towards ilk ither (early in the video, a member o In Flames can be seen hauldin up a sign that says "Sellout" as the baund drives bi Soilwork). On the In Flames video o "Trigger" Soilwork appeared an wur made interchyngeably as a joke tae the fans that aither baund haed ony indifferences wi ilk ither. This wis the last album tae featur Henry Ranta on drums.
