An album that should be bought by anybody who likes good rock music.

The stable of excellent bands and musicians that Roadrunner has assembled is becoming more and more impressive. Alongside such names as Coheed and Cambria, Slipknot, Zakk Wylde and Slash, sits Within Temptation, who are by no means overshadowed by the other names in the RR roster. In fact, it would be fair to say that, with the release of this album, some of those 'bigger' names could find themselves being eclipsed.

With the release of their previous album, 'The Heart Of Everything,' the WI guys decided that they couldn't better that album in terms of writing, performing and production, and so looked to steer a different course with the next project. 'The Unforgiving' is that, and comes over somewhat heavier than previous albums, but they pull it off brilliantly. The guitars have more balls, and Sharon Den Adel's voice has considerably more growl. The album also isn't just a collection of songs in the traditional fashion, as this project is done in combination with a comic book and a story that the album is based on. Yes, it's a concept album, something that is once again becoming quite popular with a number of bands, and you have to think, their fans too.

Tracks such as 'In The Middle Of The Night,' is a good example and reminds me of Whitesnake at their finest, ('Still Of The Night'), not that it's the same, but more that the change in dynamics throughout, and its construction, gives it that big production feeling. The first single, 'Faster,' is an up-tempo number with an excellent guitar solo, short, incisive and well constructed, that tells you this is a band that knows what it's doing. There isn't a bad track on here, each having memorable hooks and pace that means nothing drags. Even the presence of a song with a disco beat, 'Sinead,' doesn't sound out of place, although you could be forgiven for thinking 'pop rock' here, with more than a leaning towards Roxette.

I really have no criticism of this album, and feel that the album shouldn't be over talked about by me, but should be bought by anybody who likes good rock music to find out about themselves.

Andy B.
