A Must Have - 93%

gitrplaya4u, August 21st, 2005

When listening to this single I realized that Children Of Bodom has obviously undergone a change. The first track, In Your Face, starts with a monotonous, yet catchy rhythm backed by piano. Now this may be a huge change from their early stuff, but this is still balanced out by the normal melodic guitars and tricky dueling solos later on. The solo may be short, but it’s still there. The vocals on the whole single are pretty much the same as on Trashed, Lost, and Strungout and Hate Crew Deathroll. In my opinion this is neither a good thing nor a bad thing.

Oops I Did It Again ended up being better than I expected. I thought it was amazing how they turned a hiphop song into metal. They even added a solo in there. But it was strange how they stopped in the middle and started talking. Many people took this cover seriously but it’s really obvious it is a joke after you listen to it.

Track three is basically a wasted track. I don’t know why they would bother editing In Your Face. If it’s playing on Finnish radio, who cares if they cuss in English, and you know they certainly aren’t going to play this cacophonous music in the US (that was sarcastic if you couldn’t tell).

All and all, I gave it a 93 basically because of the last track. Otherwise every CoB fan should buy this.
