Yet as Amorphis drift further from their frenzied death metal roots and closer to mainstream hard rock, a trajectory they fully succeeded with on Elegy and less so on Tuonela and Am Universum, they lose the searching momentum that made their albums, if not always satisfying, at least intriguing.

2003's Far From the Sun was the sixth studio album by Finnish death-turned-progressive metal band Amorphis, and since it was the final album to feature "clean" vocalist Pasi Koskinen, it marks an end of an era for the band.

Amorphis took a sharp turn away from their death metal roots when Koskinen joined the band, and Far From the Sun is about as far removed from the band's early style as possible. Starting with Elegy (my favorite Amorphis album) the band moved in a more progressive, almost psychedelic direction, and by this album they barely qualified as metal at all. This wasn't necessarily a bad thing, since Amorphis did this kind of Pink Floyd-ish atmospheric hard rock very well, and the songs still had some real heaviness. Metal or not, Far From the Sun has some fantastic songs, including the leadoff track "Day of Your Beliefs" (one of my favorite Amorphis songs ever), "Evil Inside" and the folk-influenced title track. The combination of heaviness, melody, regional influences and Koskinen's vocals just resonates with me.

Far From the Sun seems to be the least loved album of Amorphis's career, especially by old school fans. I love the album for what it is though, even though I admit that the band came back reenergized in a big way with the Koskinen-less follow-up Eclipse, which was undeniably more of a metal album. Still, Far From the Sun is a very good album that most Amorphis fans should be able to appreciate.

Edition Notes: The US version of Far From the Sun is a "fully loaded" version of the album. It comes in a nice embossed slipcase and features five bonus tracks, including the Japanese b-side "Darkrooms" and an acoustic version of "Far From the Sun." There's also a video clip of "Evil Inside." With all these extras, I didn't think twice about replacing the import version I bought earlier.
