this album is one of the best metal albums ever, and certainly one of In Flames greatest triumphs. i am glad to say that i have the album and it is the penultimate of metal achievement.

From: drakkar Date: March 13, 2002 at 14:26
a great achievement... if you like glam rock. this barely qualifies as metal anymore. the essential in flames material can still be heard on 'jester race' and 'whoracle'... now they're just a rock band with black/death vocals.

From: Force10 Date: May 29, 2002 at 7:57
Some people might like TJR and Whoracle more than this, but for me this is some of IF's best material. BUY IT!

From: Tamer Date: July 28, 2002 at 1:29
I used to listen to bands like Metallica and Megadeth since 1988, but as these bands died out and with the emerging of that shit that they call nu-metal I switched to black/death. In Flames was one of the first bands that I listened to and from first listening they became highly recommended for me. This band is one of the best and most exclusive bands ever. I also recommend Children of Bodom (lesser quality than In Flames), Dimmu Borgir & Cradle of Filth!

TRUELY ONE OF THE FEW BANDS OUT THERE AT THIS TIME WITHOUT AN IDENTITY CRISIS & THAT ISN'T PANDERING TO THE MASSES. THEY HAVE AN EDGE & WITH THIS DISC BEING THEIR MOST "STARIGHT FORWARD" SOUNDING & MOST MELODIC, THEY HAVE DONE, WITH OUT COMPROMISING WHAT THE BAND STANDS FOR. A RARITY THESE DAYS. METALLICA TAKE NOTE. THE DAY WILL COME WHEN YOU WILL SEE SLAYER & SOULFLY OPEN FOR THIS BAND. I WANT TO BE THERE WHEN THAT HAPPENS. PICK THIS DISC UP.NO GAMBLE HERE, JUST METAL BEING DONE RIGHT. RAWK!

From: Puagh!!! Date: September 7, 2002 at 7:50
In flames roolz, and clayman is one of the best songs they've ever done! i've got a question, in which cd can u find the song called "world of promises". Nu metal, suck on this! FUCK NU METAL AND NU METAL FANS!!!!! c-u in hell!

From: MALLORCA´S ROCK Date: January 30, 2003 at 13:42
No me parece un disco redondo, pero tiene una sere de temas que son obras de arte

From: Martyr Date: February 14, 2003 at 4:20
First time I heard this album I absolutely hated it. Put it on the shelf for about 6 months and pulled it back out to give it another whirl. The album itself isn't necessarily bad, it's just nowhere near as good as their older stuff. Tone is significantly lighter on this album, and the songs have an over-polished feel to them. Anders does an OK job with the vocals, however, he's not really cut out to be singing clean vocals.

From: LmN Date: March 3, 2003 at 21:29
In Flames is fucking awesome. I like all of their albums.

From: Kevin Date: April 12, 2003 at 5:57
each in flames cd offers something different. that's why they're the best.

From: shawn lindsey Date: July 11, 2003 at 13:37
ok, so alot of people have mixed feelings about this one, but who cares? shit, this is still in flames for fucks sake!sure its not as heavy as previous albums, and sure, anders broke out the clean vokills, but the thing is....in flames can now open the door for alot of other metal to enter the spotlight. and thats why i respect this album. sure it sounds like they took a little off, but fuck! this album is still an excellent purchase, and will garner new fans to the genre. get it!

From: Unimpressed Date: October 18, 2003 at 8:03
These guys are indeed a pop rock band with death vocals, drakkar was absolutely right. This sound just doesn't work, it's an invalid mix. Do pop rock or do death, but try to do both at the same time and you get.....something that's not either and not worthwhile.

From: RazorBG Date: October 28, 2003 at 5:08
Many people said their opinions.I want to tell you one thing:Maybe it's not only death,maybe there are some NEO ELEMENTS BUT!!! it is the best as musical performance and that's all. IN FLAMES FOREVER! CLAYMAN FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! From Razor-a Bulgarian fan!!!

From: jp Date: November 10, 2003 at 20:43
prefieros the jester race y whoracle. Satellites and astronauts, pimball map, square of nothing, las mejores. Ya empezaron a putearse

From: Fat Freddy Date: December 18, 2003 at 13:12
Not a huge In Flames fan here, but I saw them open for Iced Earth last year and they SMOKE live. Of the few albums I've heard, though, this is the only one I really dug. I especially like "Only For The Weak."

From: joy Date: February 17, 2004 at 2:20
when i went to store, i have nothing in my mind but to buy some deadly metal . . . .so when i've got in there, a man name called Toxic share his experience 'bout metal music. . .so when i've decided to buy for my own, he told me not to buy for something funny metal, so, instead of buying with my choice, he offer a kind of death metal w/c i've never heard it before. . . . .& thats IN FAMES. . .then realized that, its give's me ???????? a big yeh. . . .

From: hardcore fan Date: May 15, 2004 at 10:16
clayman was the turning point for in flames's music went from death/black metal to death/heavy/melodic metal. american bands such as chimaria(cant spell) have tried to take the spot light for wrighting music like this... i think clay man is the best in flames album ever so if ur gonna get into them buy this one first or second. from biggest in flames fan eva!!!!!!!!!

From: misiek Date: July 15, 2004 at 5:15
Clayman is the best album ever... it drows my mind all time ... "Livin' in the world of promises..." YEAH!!!!!! In Flames and Sunrise RULEZ !!!!

From: Dani Filth Date: July 30, 2004 at 12:58
REROUTE TO REMAIN. to all you In Flames fuckers out there, need i say any more? all these albums fucking rule.

From: Steve Date: September 6, 2004 at 3:47
Man wheres Reroute to Remain on board?! That album has one of my favourite In Flames songs on it, 'Trigger'. Best.Chorus.Ever!

From: Black Angel Date: October 7, 2004 at 12:03
KINGS OF TRASH METAL WITH SLAYER, IT KICK ASSES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From: Jeremy Date: November 5, 2004 at 0:19
Bullet Ride kicks ass. Black Angel, they can't be kings of thrash when first of all, they aren't thrash, and second of all, they haven't been around long enought to prove it. Besides, Metallica deserves the title Kings of Thrash, they started it, and perfected it.

From: Phazor Date: December 15, 2004 at 3:46
Whoracle shits on this album!! Get Whoracle instead of this!

From: Metal 4 Ever Date: December 21, 2004 at 14:34
The last In Flames album worth owning. These guys sound more and more like Korn every day...... I hate Korn!

From: Scott Date: May 16, 2005 at 10:57
Pop music with death vocals? LOL! That's funny and completely untrue. Perhaps this one isn't as "heavy" or as "brutal" as past albums but this is still one molten metal platter. To say it's not is riduculous and just shows an ignorant bias.

From: Date: June 3, 2005 at 23:22
best death metal band ever cuz no1 comes close 2 how good they r

Wow, lots of mixed messages on this one. I dig it, personally. It has a good mixx of extreme metal-ness andj catchy accessibility. After this album, they veered too much in the latter direction, like they were trying to be the Swedish version of Disturbed or something. Lots of melodic guitar lines here, catchy choruses, and vocals that are harsh, but not death-gurgles, more in line with the likes of Children Of Bodom and especially Soilwork, with a whispery croon on the slower tracks. Good songs are "Bulllet Ride," "Pinball Map," "Only For The Weak," "Square Nothing," "Brush The Dust Away" and "Suburban Me."
