Damnation was originally supposed to be disc two of a double album (Deliverance being disc one), showcasing the band's opposing heavy and soft sides. Damnation was the soft disc, and split off and released separately against the band's wishes. So it's mellow, you know that going in. It's a whole album's worth of "Benighted," "Harvest" and "Credence." Acoustic-based, but with electric touches, and only a smattering of power chords, not very heavily distorted at that, with producer Steven Wilson's Porcupine Tree influence all over it. I actually like this disc a lot. It starts strong with three good songs, then lags in the middle ("Closure" not being a favorite, and "Hope Leaves" just kinda ... being there). "Ending Credits" is a great, mournful instrumental with tasty electric leads, and then we finish up with the weird, Mellotron-flavored "Weakness," just Akerfeldt and Wilson on that song. The mood is uniformly somber and morose, Akerfeldt singing in a wispy, wounded croon. This isn't

... This isn't party music, sports fans. This is music to listen to while you sit alone in the dark of a frigid winter night, feeling blue and sipping whiskey, numbing the pain and hoping for sleep. And if you do doze off (the piano part in "To Rid The Disease" is hushed and hypnotic), you could be excused.
