5.0 out of 5 stars Very underrated album. 10 April 2005
Format:Audio CD
"Believe in Nothing" is a fine album of dark, heavy songs by a great band.
However, I believe this to be the least popular of all PL albums to date, and sometimes I reckon it's purely to do with the band's curious choice of album cover!
Gregor wanted to create a "live-sounding" album here, and it definately shows. Songs like "Mouth" and "Fader" are among PL's most listenable songs, that is, to an audience wider than their fanbase. My favourite song here is "Never Again". It's atmospheric and dark yet is has a warm glow to it. Other great songs here are "Divided", well orchestrated and executed, and closer "World Pretending". This is a very downbeat, slow song with excellent vocals from Nick Holmes.
One flaw here, I would say, is that on occasion it feels as if some of the songs don't belong together. E.g: I feel songs like "Mouth", Look at me now" and "No Reason" are so different from "Never Again" and "Control" to the extent that is seems odd that they'd be on the same album.
This minor detail aside, "Believe in Nothing" is difficult to fault.
Excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing album 8 Feb 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Judging from my promo copy, well, this is amazing stuff. I was talking to Aaron at their gig a couple of months ago and he said it's like a mixture of the last 4 albums, namely Icon, Draconian Times, One Second and Host. Couldn't describe it better myself. It's just great. Nice indeed to have the metal guitars back. I hope they become as big again, like the old days.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not their best but still good 12 Feb 2011
By Vlad
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first purchased this album in 2001, but because I scrapped my car with Believe In Nothing still in the stereo I am purchasing a copy again...When I first heard the album I was expecting a full on synth album again and another Host - which incidentally alienated diehard PL fans when it was released - But this isn't the case and on this album PL bring back the heavier guitars with less emphasis on electronics. The album has some excellent tracks, but these are few and far between the standouts being "Look At Me Now", "Illumination" and "Never Again". For me Believe In Nothing is a good album but doesn't come anywhere near to being a masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars Believe In this Album!!!! 19 Jun 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A band which never gets the respect they deserve. Paradise Lost have always been in the background for the vast majority of the metal world but now is it time for these doom metal boys to shine? This Album suggests so.
As soon as you listen to "I am Nothing" you know your in for a treat! "Mouth" demonstrates how mature the song writing ability of Nick and Greg has become and the whole album represents both new and Old Paradise Lost. One of the best and probably most under-rated albums of the year!

5.0 out of 5 stars Believe In NOthing 9 Jun 2002
Format:Audio CD
A Very Fine album,because the songs are typical Paradise Lost.Dont expect doom-metal,dont expect another "Host"!.Expect something different.Musicaly this album is very simple,but yet powerfull and melancholic.Songs about despair,rage,anger,depression.If you dont like nu-metal,this is the alternative.Very powerfull songs on this album are "mouth","control","sell it to the world","look at me now" and at times "Something real".Actually no matter what the critics say,this album rocks!.MOre melancholy songs are "Illumination","World pretending","Divided".
When you liked "One second" and also "Host" you will like this one.On the other hand if you are a DIE_HARD-doom fan,STAY AWAY FROM IT!!!The bad critics are only of those who liked Paradise Lost from 1990 tot 1995.
This is only my opinion about it,but i guess that people who liked Paradise Lost also after "Once secnd" will agree with me.
Also check the singles from the album.Masterpieces like "Gone" and "Waiting for God".To good for not to hear!

4.0 out of 5 stars Host 2? Well almost. 7 Mar 2001
Format:Audio CD
Paradise Lost have evolved into what is their own unique sound and good for them, They obviously like what they are doing. This new alum proves that the sound they are looking for is now part of them fully. Although more in ya face then Host it still retains the same feel, however the songs just are not quite as "catchy" as the ones that made Host feel very listenable. Buy it if you like Host, avoid if you didn't.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great pretenders 13 Jun 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Much has been said in reference to PL's post One Second 2 albums, Host and Believe in Nothing. And mostly the feedback has been negative across the board which is a shame because I found both albums to be quite refreshing and both very dissimilar to one another. Host was a complete shift away from anything metal, whereas BIN returned to the guitars but followed a more commercial avenue. The albums that succeeded this stuck with this format (to a certain degree) but ramped up the heavy. Host was a triumph of substance over style and BIN was just a great little rock album.

Opener 'I Am Nothing' starts it all off in particularly melodic and loud fashion, eschewing the lessons learnt from the gentle Host in favour of an almost nu-metal sheen (almost). 'Mouth' continues this perfectly, itself being an unadulterated commercial construct, only in a very pleasing way. What's wrong with 3 minutes of catchy chorus and driving beats? 'Fader' is slightly more of a lowest common denominator. It's good but sounds too similar to its forebears. 'Look at me Now' however is a great fun little track with an unapologetically silly but catchy chorus. 'Illumination' slows thing down a bit but not completely for the better. And 'Something Real' is a single-worthy song too far. It's ok but a bit average.

It's when we get to 'Divided' that some remnants of the experimentation from Host appears. It is not entirely successful but is, again, a lot of fun. It sounds like it was commissioned for a James Bond theme, which gives it a nice cheesy quality, ramping up the brass and enjoying itself a little too much. 'Sell It to the World' continues the fun but with more pace and in under 3 minutes.
