For reasons I don’t really understand, this album was reissued in 2008 (with two extra tracks), only 3 years after the original release. The stickers on the shrink wrap packaging was hyping it as The 69 Eyes’ best release, so I guess it was just that darn good to get another pressing so soon…

But, truth be told, I can’t claim this is their best album (of the two I’ve heard, that is!). Angels is pretty superior, in my opinion. There’s nothing here that immediately jumps out at me as instantly catchy ‘goth ‘n’ roll’ like “Perfect Skin” and “Never Say Die” did.

It’s still a good album though, but it took a few listens for it to grow on me. The difference between Angels and Devils is that this album seems a bit more caught up in 80s synth and 2007’s Angels was more of a harder rocking effort.

“Beneath the Blue” features HIM frontman Ville Valo on vocals.

Highlights: “Devils”, “Feel Berlin”, “Nothing On You”, “Jimmy”, “Beneath the Blue”, “Hevioso”, “Pitchblack”
