5.0 out of 5 stars Darkly majestic, totally superb 7 Sep 2007
Format:Audio CD
While I would have called myself a Paradise Lost fan for the last 4 years or so, and I have every CD they have made, I wouldn't have rated them among my "must see" top 10 until now. I always found them too inconsistent, with flashes of brilliance sandwiched between slabs of uninspired same-ness.

However all that has changed. `In Requiem' is quite superb. I liked it from the first listen, but somehow I kept it in my car for two weeks without ever feeling the need to change CDs. This is easily the best album in Paradise Lost's long, illustrious career and should, if there is any justice, mark the turning point, where acclaim is poured all over them.

My daughter is always asking me questions like "what's your favourite track" and with In Requiem it took me about 2 weeks to conclude that it is `Unreachable'. This is not because nothing stands out, the problem is that it *all* stands out. The whole album is composed of `A-sides'.

It's a dark, gloomy kind of music though tracks like Requiem provide an opportunity to slam your head against unyielding objects. The guitars are consistently perfect; the solos are precise and brief and the wall-of-noise is used sparingly and effectively. Instrumentally this is without doubt the band's zenith. Lyrically it is still Paradise Lost, so apparently meaningful lines are interspersed with head-scratching gibberish occasionally, but so what? The overall impression is one of darkly crawling power, and that works very well, thanks. Nick Holmes, always impressive, is at his best ever on this album ranging from straight singing to darkly threatening growls via a credible impression of James Hetfield. This is a band at the peak of their powers and they look poised to exceed themselves and possibly the rest of the dark metal world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paradise Lost 2007 4 Oct 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is undoubtedly one of the top 5 releases of 2007. And even though someone might disagree, probably PL's best album so far.

It's very dark, doomy. No messing around, straight to the point ... pure metal. I was just looking at the track listing and wanted to pick the stand out tracks. But there are no stand out tracks on this album. It's brilliant from the first note to the very last one.

If there is something like band's identity, for me it was album Draconian times for PL. Now, that album always had a weakness for me and that were the vocals. In comparison to that album, In Requiem hasn't got any weakness. Nick Holmes is fantastic, absolutely faultless.

It's pointless to analyze In Requiem. You'll buy it anyway and you'll find out for yourself. You certainly won't regret.

I have been a fan of paradiselost since 1993's thundering and doom leaden opus Icon came to my attention. I have bought every album since on the day of release and eagerly anticipated them, with good reason. Even in the latter years of the nineties when the Halifax quintet where at the apex of their almost techno-pop experimental phase (alienating a fair portion of their hardcore doom fanbase in the process) I had to respect the nerve of these guys to risk sales and popularity for the sake of sticking to their creative guns, even if softer offerings like One Second and to the largest extent 1999's Depeche Mode-like album Host took several spins to grow on me.

With 2007's new album In Requiem the band have offered up a welcome progression, harking back to the melody-ridden thunder of 2005's brilliant self titled record. In Requiem delivers 53+ minutes of solid driven stonk! - full of melodies and crushing riffage that will pin you to your easy chair and never fail to impress. Nick Holmes' vocals are, as ever, clean crisp and precise, the perfect slightly gravelled partner to the cutting guitar work of music writer Greg Macintosh. New drummer Jeff Singer fits seemlessly into the signature plaintive howling guitars and anguish tinted sound of a band I love and have seen live twice (both gigs great nights out).

I prefer to let Amazon customers experience music for themselves, as it's such a subjective artform. So I won't bore you with my list of stand-out tracks. To this reviewer the entire album is excellent. What I will say is: if you like paradiselost then this is a welcome addition to their discography and your collection. If you're new to this band/curious then get this album now! You're a fan of heavy intelligent rock/gothic themed metal? Then come witness a brilliant underrated British band at the peak of their power. . .

5.0 out of 5 stars Another stunning album 2 Aug 2007
Format:Audio CD
I've being a fan of The Lost since seeing them at Donnington many years ago, and despite numerous changes in musical directions (most noticably the excellent Depeche Mode inspired Host)have always enjoyed their CD's. They are rightly classed as the link between The Sisters of Mercy and Metallic and the new CD is no exception.

Excellent songs played with great skill. The stand out tracks for me are Unreachable,Fallen Children, Sedative God and Your Own Reality with the extra cover version of Missing (unfortunately only on the special edition version) being yet another classic cover by the band in the same way that Small Town Boy stood out on Symbol of Life

After all this time I still find it amazing that the band are not one of the top UK metal artists but that is unfortunately other peoples loss

Thanks guys - keep up the good work

You can never accuse Paradise Lost of being boring. Once again they have produced an album different from the last, and not stuck to tried and tested (and generic) formula. Read more

Paradise Lost's 11th album 'In Requiem' is absolutely stunning. It blends elements from almost all previous albums with what I consider a refreshing new style of gothic metal. Read more
