Well, to begin, this is not, perhaps, what you would expect an entire MDB album to be like, however... Essentially the album consists of various melodies from past MDB albums, but reworked into something positively beautiful, and only subtley recognisable. There are no guitars, no drums, just melody, and some vocals (Aaron Stainthorpe & some opera wifey). If you think back (skipping the last two albums) and remember MDB's more melodic, soulful passages, this is pretty much an album consisting of only that. However, it has a somewhat hopeful feel to it. It is as if they are purifying the heartache and darkness from their songs. The effect, though hard to describe, is genuinely amazing. Powerful. If you are a long time MDB fan, you will almost certainly appreciate this as much as I do. If, though, you are very new to MDB, and only know their newest couple of albums, then I cannot guarantee that you will enjoy this.
