Dark Tranquillity - The Mind's I (1997)Release ID: 2403
A really promising record that was let down by a thin production. The guitar sound is the main area of concern. The vocals are excellent throughout. There's some really great melodic death metal riffs in the first half in particular. The song-writing is high quality but not as memorable as the previous album. Much like "The Gallery" the later songs are not as strong as the early ones. One feels that a decent production could have opened these songs up a lot more.
