  • Summary: The fifth studio album for the Swedish rock band was produced by Rick Rubin.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 7 out of 11
  2. Negative: 1 out of 11
  1. Although The Cross Of My Calling ostensibly provides an outlet for the band’s Marxist ideologies, its impeccable musicianship, arrangement and production make any political sloganeering irrelevant.
  2. There's no denying the passion and skill behind the group's fourth album, its most accessible collection yet.
  3. With Rick Rubin polishing the group's garage rock approach into a sharper aural attack, T(I)NC dishes out such heady anthems.
  4. There are unexpected gems hidden here.

    Though this may be considered a good album due to its proper rock anthems and memorable melodies, the style goes awry one too many times for the disc to be considered novel. [Holiday 2008, p.92]

    Generally, they’re smart and musical enough to turn rhetorical gestures into convincing rock & roll. But when they subtitle the whole schmear “A Love Vision!” you wonder who they’re trying to kid.
  7. The Cross of My Calling just sounds like an unfinished assignment.

    Good story, Was taken out of the movie by some of the acting like when Naomi Watts slammed her HURT hand on the table to show indignation. The ending left a lot to be desired but I don't know how it could have been different. Expand
