"Within Temptation brilliantly proves that "pop" is not necessarily an antagonist of "metal"."
PIOU - 11.01.2005 -
Four years! Four long years of waiting for desperate fans! Within Temptation finally gratifies us with his latest work. So here is the successor to Mother Earth, and not only by the chronology.

The Silent Force takes the best elements of its predecessor and affirms them more. The symphonic spirit is more pronounced and gives a really credible grandiloquent dimension that sometimes gives you the impression of a great Hollywood production. Some ethereal atmospheres bewitch you and you are surprised to glide peacefully, your mind in the void. But make no mistake about it, even in the clouds, music always captures your attention.

Within Temptation has clearly opted for a more pop direction of his music. We could already feel the turn that had begun, it is undeniably confirmed. However, this orientation can appear as a richness and not a handicap. If sometimes, some titles can sound a little honeyed, they are no less pleasant to listen to than their more metal counterparts.

Within Temptation brilliantly proves that "pop" is not necessarily an antagonist of "metal". Get rid of the most restrictive a-priori and let yourself be carried away by the sweet melodies of this tempting angel.
