I'd heard a lot of reviews of this album which repeatedly stated 2 things:
1. It's not as good as 'Opus'.
2. It suffered from a terrible over compressed 'brick wall' mastering process (producing a loud sound but with audible digital distortion and loss of nearly all dynamics)

To the first point, I have to be controversial and say I actual prefer this album to their first!
I guess it depends what you like about Ghost's sound as to which you would prefer. People seem to spend FAR TO MUCH time deciding how 'metal' something is as a level of quality. I personally find that to judge Ghost on how 'metal' they are is to completely miss the point. Ghost are a refreshing escape from the factory line rotation of formulaic metal 'products' around. They exist on their own as a unique and brilliant oddity. (Until, that is all the inevitable clone bands start emerging on the back of their success ;)

Anyway.. Point 2.
It sounds better on vinyl!!!
That sounds like a typically hipster, audiophile bore thing to say, but it's true.
Forget for a minute the constant debate of whether vinyl generally sounds 'warmer' or has more 'soul' than digital, there is in this case another important factor.
It's mentioned in reviews everywhere that this album has suffered what's become known as a 'Death Magnetic' master, where in an effort to make the record sound as loud as possible, all the dynamics and 'life' has been squashed out of it leaving a distorted chunk of a sound.
So why is the vinyl version going to be any better?
Because the physical 'limitations' of vinyl, when done properly, music has to mastered to a completely different standard than digital.

5.0 out of 5 stars Creepy as hell 31 Aug 2013

If satanic zombie-popes with hooded 'nameless ghouls' are your thing, then Ghost definitely is.
Not for the religious or god-fearing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let The Laughter Continue! 22 Aug 2014
Format:Audio CD
Totally brilliant album and every bit as good as Opus Eponymous if not better. Almost every song here is a future classic taking in even broader influences from the amazing Doors tinged Secular Haze (the first single) to Jigolo Har Megiddo which has a riff very similar to Pumpkins' Marquis de Spades! Every song is well crafted and written for maximum affect. Other highlights are the gothic Latin opening hymnal Infestissumam which sets the grand opulent theme for the album and launches into the Sabbathy Per Aspera Ad Inferi which has a cool singalong chorus. Elsewhere there is the semi ballad Ghuleh/Zombie Queen another dark and hummable number. Second single Year Zero offers more tongue in cheek pseudo- Satanism; the video is hilarious too with women stripping off and donning the cloaked attire of the band! Monstrance Clock is what this band do best; tongue in cheek black theatre sending up Lucifer in the best/worst possible taste depending on your convictions - I am not a Satanist nor have dealings with black magic. To me Ghost are pure theatre and entertainment like watching a classic horror flick; they are not to everyones taste and the Satanic theme puts people off, but if you can see the black humour there (they are taking the piss!) the music is highly rewarding classic melodic doom metal with broad influences. They have brought much needed laughter into my life. Can't wait for the next album i'm sure they will surprise again.

ps. Album aside, my only gripe is All Your Music sent me the digipak version with minimal content, ie no booklet just basic gatefold picture of the band and credits. I only paid 6 which is fair enough but i had to wait more than 3 weeks. If i had known it was a digipak i would have downloaded it from Amazon or iTunes.

Only really bought this for the last track ("Monstrance Clock". They closed the set on the Sunday at Download with it, and i was humming it to myself for the rest of the day).... and was quite impressed with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album 6 May 2013

Pre-ordered this having bought Opus Eponymous previously, another great album with incredible vocals. Looking forward to their next release, hopefully there won't be long to wait.

Ok.

I think people who criticise the mastering/ production/ whatever are kind of missing the point.

To my mind the production is designed to contribute to the overall feel of the album and to give it a seperate identity and feel from the first one.

To my ears this is an album that stands head and shoulders above anything I have heard in the last 2 decades. The songwriting and craft involved is absolutely incredible. No 2 songs sound alike, and yet no other band could have made any of them.

There is no weak track on this album.

The vocals are outstanding.

Look beyond the clearly tongue in cheek imagery and enjoy a rare work of unique genius.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My hubby bought this for me after we saw them at sonisphere festival. All i can say is wow. I am a catholic so shouldn't really enjoy them as much as i do but hey good music is good music. My favourite of all is year zero. So catchy and gets stuck in your head. Deffinitely worth more than 5 stars in my opinion.

Saw them supporting Alice in Chains on Monday night: essentially a pantomime metal band that appeals to adolescents. File next to your King Diamond records.
