4.0 out of 5 stars wonderful mix, not done before 10 April 2003
Format:Audio CD
I was enchanted by a strange mix of monstrous and angelic vocals, a sense of calmness and uneasiness in one tight package. Backed up my inventive metal riffs, soothing piano work, and frantic and subtle drumming, it enthralled me.
I am new to the whole goth-metal scene, listening to other bands moan about their problems while thrashing out power chords. On hearing the name, i immediately though 'oh no not another goth clone'. I was obviously wrong.
It takes influence from mythology, fairy tales and legend, working with the figure of 'woman.' (thus the titles of casandra, venus etc...) I would definately recomment this album to anyone. Its such a varied mix that anyone could like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Their musical Everest 10 Feb 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If they were doing good with the first album, in 'Velvet Darkness they fear', they really improved, but this is the best they've ever done. Maybe guitars are on a second plane now in favor of the electric sounds, but they even sing much better, and all the songs bring more feelings. The production of the album couldn't be better. I recommended to everyone who has a clue of them. It's fascinating!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beauty in darkness 21 July 2006
Format:Audio CD
I am not sure it's possible to make you grasp the scope of this album from a few lines worth of review, but it is certainly proof of the old saying "The Devil has all the best tunes". It's a candle in the darkess, a rainbow over a stormy sea, and much more. The genre is Gothic metal if you truly have to put a label on it, but that's just to give you an idea of the music's general roots. It contains just the right balance of angelic female vocals and dark male voices, epic sounds and plenty of hard guitars and energetic riffs; but at the same time it's also wonderfully melodic, a quality that often sadly lacks from most of really hard metal. Such is its energy and beauty, this record will make you laugh and cry, will make you want to dance in the street and sing out loud. If you want to explore the gothic genre, if you are already a fan but don't have this album, or pure and simply like great music, this album is a must, especially in this (extended) version, which contains 2 extra songs, both of the same high quality as the rest of the album, which makes you wonder why they were not part of the original set to begin with.

A warning though: the lyrics, like in other albums from TOT are in archaic English (not old English) and extremely difficult to follow unless you have a masters in English Literature. But I assure you that won't detract a single bit from the feelings this music will evoke in you.

5.0 out of 5 stars A mindblowing experience 17 May 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is beyond good, beyond extraordinary, beyond words, so I won't mess around too much. From the first time I listened to it I felt like jumping around with joy, you see, I had found the perfect gothic record for my tastes and moods. Months of listening later I still feel the same way, so now I am buying the Japanese edition which has a few extra songs. If you are into gothic rock this album will rock your world, it's just too good, you've just got to buy it now, dont' think about it, tell you what, flame me if you think I steered you wrong, alright ? Enjoy
