Not that I dislike the current Tad Morose, it's just that they have changed their style drastically over the last 5 years. The album opens with "Eternal Lies" after a slow and haunting intro. Andren's vocals might sound weak in the beginning but once you get used to his style you will definitely love it. He does an amazing job, particularly in each chorus of the songs. Christer Andersson's guitar solo in "Voices Are Calling", although a bit poorly produced, is one of the most fitting and sharpest guitar solos to have been recorded on a prog album.
The solo in "Eyes of a Stranger" is also haunting. It is also this song, in my opinion, which the band obviously spent a lot of time on to create their sophomore album Sender of Thoughts, which has a bigger and better production. It took me more than a few spins to get into the Andren-era while Undead with Urban Breed worked for me right from the start.
It must be the proggy touch and the less polished production. The chorus of this song has stuck in my mind for years. It is very strong, but I wouldn't say the song fits very well with the rest of the album, even though it sounds very heartfelt. The title track has a great symphonic intro that slowly builds up and is complemented by intricate instrumental sections with Andren exhibiting a nice vocal performance.
In "Reflections" the band members show their prowess as a unit with their long instrumental parts and Andren only intervening to add some vocals over the very progressive songwriting. This song itself shows that one of Tad Morose's strongest sides is their beautiful compositions.
Be Who We Are Created to Be
The drummer and bassist provide great rhtythms that are just too good to ignore. Anyone who says it is hard to headbang to prog music should check this song out. Especially Swedish prog bands do a fantastic job as far as rhythm sections are concerned. The album closes with "Way of History" which is a song that combines elements from every song including Andren's deep vocals.
- I Can Make You Thin.
- Expanding Indications For The New Macrolides, Azalides, and Streptogramins (Infectious Disease and Therapy).
- Electre and Decision Support: Methods and Applications in Engineering and Infrastructure Investment.
- How to Start a Home-Based Childrens Birthday Party Business (Home-Based Business Series)?
Before I finish this review, I think it's a shame that keyboardist Fredrik Eriksson now in Morifade had to leave the band when Tad Morose decided to adapt a more straightforward approach. His absence is sorely missed. Urban has an amazing voice and Eriksson is a great keyboard player so if you like the newer Morose and keyboards that album might be a better starting point for you.
Though I still consider Sender of Thoughts to be the best Tad Morose album from songwriting to production to musicianship. Leaving The Past Behind, on the other hand, is still getting a lot of replays from me because of its solid proggy background and Andren's fitting vocals. Boat wake on the sea. Leaving the past behind.
