Format: Audio CD
The Light At The End Of The World is an uncharacteristically unfocused effort from doom masters My Dying Bride. When I say masters, I mean masters: MDB is unique enough to be singled out for praise, but has enough of the special stuff to ensure they remain, in my estimation, the most successful underground group in the country. That said, they experienced an identity crisis towards the late 1990s after the departure of a third of their stable, which for a band so clearly defined by each member's input was certainly a problem and enough to derail a lesser outfit. They tried their hand at something new on 1998's 34.788%... Complete record, which saw a near total departure from what one could consider their trademark sound. While that album was certainly worthy of the band name on the cover, to be perfectly blunt it was not well received and the band responded in kind with a quick about-face and a return to the concentrated, heavier side of their output. Even so, the album that resulted isn't quite the return to form that would follow with the sublime succession of records that came immediately after it.

At 71 minutes, the album is simply too long, an abuse of the CD format even. Perhaps if the music was consistently of a high quality throughout this wouldn't be an issue, but frankly there's too much of the same on here. What once flowed naturally from My Dying Bride- ponderous menacing metal drawn out to that sweet point between perfection and pretension- here feels forced, most notably on the tracks that constitute the middle of the album.

For some reason, The Light at the end of the World is one of My Dying Bride's least well known albums, although it is not their worst. Since their earlier albums they have ditched previous drummer Rick Myah and violinist Martin Powell. They have also gained ex Anathema drummer Shaun Steels, who easily keeps up the high standard of his predecessor. Anyway. Since The Angel and The Dark River, MDB had strayed from their original doom metal style a little, however by The Light at the end of the World, they have returned to their original style. Guitarists Calvin and Andy have gone from strength to strength since their beginnings and constantly outdo themselves on this album. The drumming is fantastic, different in style than Rick's but it fits the music very well. Aaron sticks mainly to the clean doom vocals he used in The Angel and The Dark River and Like Gods of the Sun, but he has also reintroduced small amounts of the doomdeath vocals he used in their first album As the Flower Withers. The best song on the album is definitely the title track, which may possibly be the best song MBD ever wrote. The guitar work is fantastic. It actually manages to almost sound like waves gently beating on the shore of a desolate island. The lyrics are the most beautiful Aaron has ever written and actually tell a story on their own. The opening track She is the Dark is also brilliant. It has an absolutely superb riff and some fantastic, almost black metal sounding vocal sections, which create an unbelievably dark atmosphere. Unlike most of their albums, which all have their weak points, there are no songs on here which let the standard down. Every song is worth listening to, and I would recommend the album to anyone who likes their previous doom metal releases, especially if you like intense, emotional, moving and extremely beautiful music.

My Dying Bride are probably the best goth/doom metal band in the world. I've been a fan since their masterpiece 'Turn Loose the Swans' and this album sees them return to the admirable form of records from that period. After a nearly seven year absence, Aaron's death metal vocals make a return, and add a huge impact. '34.7whatever% Complete' was a change in direction. It didn't work too well, so they return with my joint-favourite album of the year (the other, NIN's 'The Fragile'). It's not 'Turn Loose the Swans' or 'Angel and the Dark River', but it still shows who's at the front of the goth-metal pack.

A pleasure for all the sense. The music is so layered, the production so immense, the song-writing so strong, this has got to be a candidate for doom album of the next millenium.

I have been expecting this album for ages, and I surely was not disappointed .... this is classical MDB and in my opinion TLATEOTW is their best since Turn Loose the Swans. The vocals are hauntingly splendid and so are the guitarwork and drumming. A definite purchase for any doom-metal or MDB fan.

AT LAST "MY DYING BRIDE" HAVE RETURNED TO WHAT THEY DO BEST AND THAT IS SLOW, MELODIC AND PASSIONATE WHILE DARK AT THE SAME TIME METAL. REGRETABLY NO VIOLIN IN THIS ONE AND I DO MISS IT BUT THEN THERE ARE HARSH VOCALS ALONGSIDE THE MELODIC ONES. THE "LIGHT AT THE END OF THE WORLD"SONG IS A HIGHLIGHT AND A FULL OF EMOTION 10 MINUTE SONG THAT IS NEVER BORING YOU BY PLAYING THE SAME RIFF 20 TIMES BUT IS INSTEAD REWARDING YOU WITH ITS LYRICS AND INVOLVES YOU IN THE SADNESS AND AGONY OF THE STORY. IF YOU LIKED "ANGEL AND THE DARK RIVER" AND "TURN LOOSE THE SWANS" THEN COMPINE THAT WITH A LITTLE "GODS OF THE SUN" TAKE AWAY THE VIOLIN AND YOU HAVE THE MASTERPIECE CALLED "THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE WORLD".
