Within Temptation - Paradise (What About Us?)
The four songs provided by Within Temptation on this EP seem to be a look into an album in progress. Each track is labeled demo version with the exception of the title track which features Tarja (ex-Nightwish). I know this is supposed to be some sort of metal, but I don't even know how it could be classified as that. I barely hear a difference between this and modern pop music. The guitars may give it a slight edge, really slight. I feel like their fan base is made up of girls into cosplay and guys that look like Legolas, all of which are very adventurous in the bedroom.
Admittedly, I can't really say I hate anything about these songs. However, I can't really say much positive about them other than the execution sounds exceptional. The vocals sound perfect and musically everything is spot on, the problem is I can't get behind the music being played here. Like I said before these just sound like pop songs taken to another dimension and done on a larger scale. I respect it, but will never listen to it again.
