As a whole, there’s not a lot that can really be faulted with this album, aside from a minor nuance of the songs being stylistically similar to one another.
This is Beseech as only Beseech can sound - melodic and hideously catchy.
For some of you it will be too sweet, but the band writes fetching songs, ones that will convince a mainstream poprock audience as well. And after all these years they are heartily welcome to that!
Not every song is a home run, but the ones that are completely knock it out of the park, and they make up a sizable chunk of the album.
Many will place Beseech now in more of a pop/gothic metal category, but to my ears these 11 tracks have just as much to do with Lake of Tears or latter day Tiamat as an act like H.I.M.
The band have painted such a vivid background, that anything drawn on to the surface melts back into it beautifully. By accident or design, it’s very cleverly accomplished.
