Everyone should check out the HIM singles collection boxset. Amazing b-sides/remixes from my personal favourtite era of the band (RR & deep shadows). The last few records have been Ok, the the older stuff is incredible though.

I don't hate this band...In fact I used to really like them. I also own a Heartogram shirt (though, I haven't worn it in a year or so due to accidentally bleaching it), and I was into them a couple years back, but it all just sounds so depressing and dreary now to me. I can't get back into it. It's like a block.

So I gave it a shot, but in all honestly it's just another one of those "eh" album's.

Only album from this band that I can listen to is Love Metal. Everything else is just past my acceptable limit of cheesiness. And that's saying something.

Good review, Jeremy.

I like this album, have been a fan of HIM for years......... yes Razorblade Romance is 20 times better but so is every band who has a "great album." I am happy that Ville's vocal capabilities are starting to actually show up on the last 2 records than before, and Screamworks is probably his best album vocally. The ONLY thing i dont like.......... THE LYRICS ARENT THAT GREAT......... especially after an album of lyrics like Venus Doom, seriously Ville u could have done a little better.

interesting review.... glad to hear this album is not worth anything, as i thought it would be.

p.s. sorry, maybe my opinion is bias, i've always hated this band.

I thought some of the songs were alright, surely nothing special, but not too bad.

HIM sucks. BAM rocks. Razorblade Romance was a solid CD, by no means great. CKy has more solid material then HIM.

HIM and Nickelback are pretty much on the same level.

Still enjoy listening to HIM from time to time, but I think it is a bit more for Nostalgias sake. Used to be very into that whole scene, but I don't know if I could get into some new stuff. Will give the album a spin and see what think, but I'm not expecting much!

I've never gotten this band. Maybe it's the crazed-fanaticism of their cult-like following (I can't help but picture chubby girls wearing gothic makeup and "Twilight" t-shirts) that has always just turned me off. Or maybe it's the over-dramatic style of the lead singer's voice. Either way, I don't see any reason to get into them now.

You have your own country? Is it like that Sealand place? That would be neat. For you. I'm not one for traveling, I've never been to your country. And unless you're a nice cute girl, I'm probably never going to visit.
