D3: "Dead To The World" is such a gem on this release. The melodic build-up is perfectly arranged. The instruments are really complimenting each other and it takes the melody to a new level, constantly changing small detail in the rythm. The lyrics are fantastic! And the vocals are very smooth and almost whispering. This is worth buying the album for.
