Entwine - _The Treasure Within Hearts_
(Spinefarm Records, 1999)
by: Adrian Bromley (6.5 out of 10)
With all too familiar sounds of passion, the gentle sprinkling of ivory keys and emotional vocal stylings flowing throughout the disc, I felt as if I was being subjected to a pretty bland attempt at trying to make music come across as special and unique. It fails. Instead, I was subjected to a pretty generic clone copy of such greats as My Dying Bride, Opeth and The Gathering. While not all that bad, the use of keyboards and female vocals does get a bit obnoxiously overdone and that paints a black spot on the rest of Entwine's material, although a good portion of the record is actually worth listening. Sparks of brilliance arise on tracks like "In the Frame of Wilderness" and "Enjoy the Silence", but it's not enough to save the record, I'm afraid. Be cautious of this release.
