FINLAND's #1 BAND. The last two albums went straight to #1 on the charts and the debut 'Signs of Life' stayed in the Top 40 for over a year!
Poets of the Fall
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Poets of the Fall is a rock band hailing from Finland that I'm very surprised they're not more of a name stateside when it comes to excellent rock music. I've been a fan of the band for about two years, loving both albums they've released (their debut "Signs of Life" and their sophomore effort "Carnival of Rust"), and they've since released their third album "Revolution Roulette".
This album has a heavier collective tonality than their previous albums, showing a strong effort from the band that bests many rock albums released stateside in the past year. From the energetic album opener "More" to the soothing, yet thoughtful "Where Do We Draw the Line", the band radiates such control, punch, and poise in their music. Some of my favorite tracks from this album include "The Ultimate Fling", which alternates from being playful and tongue in cheek to really rocking out in an anthemic way, "Psychosis", the band's heaviest song effort to date, "Revolution Roulette", which does a...
After the beautiful debut "Signs of Life" and the brilliant follow up "Carnival of Rust", my expectations were high for their third album. With "Revolution Roulette" the Finnish band Poets of the Fall easily meet and even exceed these expectations.
The first two albums are softer, quieter than this one and give the listener time to not only enjoy the beautiful music but pay attention to the amazing lyrics. "Revolution Roulette" is louder and a lot harder overall, without losing quality of the songs. The album offers an amazing range of music from soft ballads like Where do we draw the line" and Fragile" to strong rock songs like The ultimate Fling" or Psychosis". The style of the band has changed considerably, but remains recognizable. Singer Marko Saaresto manages to make you believe any emotion be it fear in Save me", anger in Revolution Roulette" or doubt as well as the courage to overcome those doubts in Diamonds for tears". The mood of each song is carried by...
This is a wonderful album! Even though it's considered by me their rawest album to date, it's still full of melodies and all the elements that made Poets of the Fall so powerful and so thrilling all this time. It's very very hard for a band accomplishing that, came in a market full of things with three albums in the road and still sound relevant!! Great!!
The songs are slightly different from what they made in their previous two albums, but not too much. "The Ultimate Fling" is the single, the title song is the best of the album for me, "Psychosis" is excellent, "Save Me" is pure energy and "Where Do We Draw the Line" is amazing!!
I'm still wondering which direction the band is going to take after this. It can be anything departing from here. But at the same time I'm in hope that will be great and that Poets will thrill us for a very very long time yet.
