30 Day Music Challenge, Day 02: Least Favourite Song

I know I am in the minority here, but I am not a fan of After Forever, and I am not super keen on Floor Jansen's voice. This isn't to say I don't respect their talents & abilities as musicians - I do, and I can see that they have considerable amounts of these things - it's just a personal taste thing.

A while back, my cohort here, Eric, challenged me to listen to all of After Forever's discography, and I did this. It didn't improve my feelings towards them at all. The album I liked least was Invisible Circles, a concept album about a married couple whose relationship is on the rocks and who have a child caught in the middle. Once in a while during this CD, there are these melodramatic excerpts of fights between this married couple, featuring a sneery image-minded man and a desperate, whinging female. These little scenes add a cheesiness to this album it did not need. Here is one I can safely categorize in my "least favourite songs" list, "Between Love and Fire."

After Forever is a good band, but yeah, this song and this album isn't their best.

I agree with you Chanuckfan. I'm also not a big fan of AF or Floor Jansen most times. I only like 1 or 2 songs by them.

@ Sorcha: I can honestly say that the only song I like by AF is their cover of Heart's "Alone."
