By far one of my fave doom records of all time!

Pretty much My Dying Bride's best release to date, an epic album full of misery and dispair.

Some accuse My Dying Bride of being melodramatic. A fair criticism—I mean, there is the way Aaron Stainthorpe's voice cracks with despair at the beginning of "From Darkest Skies"—take it easy, dude! But man, there's just something so alluring about MDB's brand of all-consuming woe. This is my favorite of their early albums. Aaron is singing more, although it's more in a bereft monotone than the mournful croon he's perfected on recent albums like Feel The Misery. This is music for the solitary, black nights between cold, rainy days. Even when they're singing about sex, as all self-respecting goths will do from time to time, it's more about the use and abuse of power. MDB are like a more intellectual version of Paradise Lost, on downers. "The Cry Of Mankind" is one of their all-time classics, even though almost half the song is the outro's waves-and-foghorn sound effects, as the repeating guitar melody slowly fades like a ship going out to sea, leaving you on a barren shore. The only sou

... sound more lost and lonely is the absolutely chilling violin intro to "Your Shameful Heaven." Other highlights are "Black Voyage" and "A Sea To Suffer In."
