SO WHAT DO WE THINK OF THE NEW IN FLAMES SINGLE?
In Flames’ new single, “The Mirror’s Truth,” debuted on the radio last night. If you missed it, there are decent quality radio rips floating all over the internet, although Nuclear Blast is pulling ’em down just as quickly as they can (one of the reasons I’m not even gonna bother posting a link here).
Now, Vince and I love, love, LOVE In Flames, but – and I can’t speak for Vince, only for myself – this song does not immediately make my ears perk up. It just seems kinda… blah. But then, I wasn’t that into “Take this Life” when I first heard it, either, and now I think it’s a pretty good song (for the record, yes, I agree that old In Flames is superior to new In Flames, but no, I did not think Come Clarity sucked – actually, I thought it was a really good album). I hope this song grows on me, too, because I’d like nothing more than for this new offering, A Sense of Purpose, to be good (well… maybe I’d like a bj from that chick from In This Moment more, but that’s neither here nor there).
So for those of you that have heard the song, time to weigh in: what do you think of it?
UPDATE: The new single “The Mirror’s Truth” is now available on In Flames’ MySpace page.
