I bought this album a few years ago and it is one of the few album that I have never got bored of, and in fact it seems to get better rather that worse the more I hear it. All of the songs on the album are very good, however highlights are, Pressure, Release, A fine day to exit and Underworld. Les makes a welcome addition to the band, providing the signature piano riff of opening song Pressure. You can't really hear him in all songs but anyone who has ever heard Cruelty and the Beast will know he is a talented keyboardist/pianist. The rest of the band are all amazing as well. Original drummer John Douglas has returned, and replacement Shaun Steels has been packed off to join fellow doom metallers My Dying Bride. Most of the songs are as usual written by guitarist Danny, however John's contribution of the title track is probably one of the most memorable and moving songs on the album. Vincent has improved as vocalist, although his song writing is still not as good as his brother's. His contribution, Leave no trace, is quite a good song, but somewhat trails off toward the end. Anyway, if you are a fan of their old stuff, this album is more rock than doom metal, but its a good album, and if you weren't sure about the band before, you might like this. Anyway, one final thought... If you were going to drown yourself, you wouldnt take off all your clothes first would you?
