    Ultimately, by pushing the dance beats and the slabs of synth to the foreground, the Sounds have increased their pop appeal and delivered an album that pleases your ears while also demanding that you leave your blood on the dancefloor.
  2. The record as a substantial body of work comes complete with up-tempo numbers that are danceable but without an enticing hook, a few straightforward pop/rock tunes with tremendous choruses, and an album ending ballad that renders the album slightly indifferent, inconsistent and lacking an underlying direction and purpose.

    Something To Die For has the Swedish dance/pop outfit awkwardly dipping a toe into the pool of trance music.

    *UPDATED REVIEW* It may not be as good as Crossing the Rubicon, but it is still a hell good album even though the style of music has changed.
