Reroute to Remain (Subtitled: Fourteen Songs of Conscious Insanity & on The Reissue: Fourteen Songs of Conscious Madness) is the sixth studio album by the Swedish metal band In Flames. The album saw a major change in musical style and was In Flames' first considerable step in the direction of mainstream music, and was met with rejection among many of their fanbase. It is sometimes viewed as a transitional album between Clayman and Soundtrack to Your Escape. The album's more accessible sound attracted many new fans and popularized In Flames' name within the American nu metal scene, helping to secure a top spot at Ozzfest. The album peaked at No. 13 on the Billboard Independent Albums chart.[1] This was the band's first album to present singles which were "Trigger" and "Cloud Connected".
