Everything came together perfectly--the right story, the right actors, the right tone--making for a film that was so popular it spawned a number of cliches and launched Shyamalan into superstardom. When you compare this album to the one after, Origins, you do notice a few similarities, but this isn't a review of Origins, this is a review of the album that came out before, so all credit goes to this album.

CharlyDerangedJuly 2nd, With 17 tracks one of which being a twenty second long breakI actually only liked 5 tracks off the entire album. Now with their latest release of Helvetios, I find myself feeling somewhat unhappy with the release. Bands from all over take inspiration from their homelands and infuse it into their music. They never needed it though, as that's what the folk instruments were for - the hurdy gurdy, flute, all of it; they added the slick melodies and atmosphere that was lacking.
