To be honest, i only bought this album because the whole idea of Mortiis amused me greatly, i had no idea what to expect( though something along the lines of an awful croaky voice and really heavy guitar came to mind...) So when i listened to it for the first time i was... SHOCKED! He sings like David Bowie its immediately catchy, i cant take the bloomin thing out of my CD player!The first track 'Parasite God/Scar Trek' really gets you up on your feet and singing along, i love it... Theres a good mix of heavy and mellow, with one song 'Everyone leaves' sounding like Enigma and Moby's love child! His influences are sometimes very obvious (80's pop being one) but who cares when you are listening to an album this good? Everyone whom i played this album to, no matter what taste in music they have, have absolutely loved it... until i showed them a picture of Mortiis! But basically to sum it up... this album sounds nothing like what Mortiis looks like, if you havent heard him you'll be in for a great suprise... a truly talented and eccentric character and god knows the meatal scene needs a few more of those... so go buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 25 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The other review is exactly how I felt and that about the album. He does sing like David Bowie, it does have a sought of 80's pop feel to it and everyone I've showed it to liked it but laughed when they saw what he looked like. It's really good to mellow out to. The thing that gets me is when people keep classing it as metal which is so stupid. But none the less this album is brilliant. It's completely different to how I thought it was going to sound and it's completely different to The Stargate etc. Also Sarah Jezebel Diva (Cradle of Filth,Therion) makes a good addition to the CD. Get it! You can't go wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars MORTIIS- The smell of rain 20 April 2003
Format:Audio CD
Wow is what I will start of with, and I will say it again wow, this is a great album, with very deep songs in it, it plays with what ever mood you are in. It clearly shows how talented Mortiis is at writing music and performing it. It is a must for any one who wants to listen to music and be moved by it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mortiis - What are you doing? 7 Dec 2002
By Jan
Format:Audio CD
Being a huge fan of the Mortiis Era II CD The Smell of Rain I did not really know what to expect from this remastered edition not to forget the remixes. But due to my curiosity I bought this "Highly limited edition." There are some minor noticeable things regarding the remastering of the original album but to be perfectly honest it is not worth mentioning. Concerning the remixes I must confess that I was very disappointed indeed. They lack just about everything and I am quite surprised that Mortiis would put his name to such idiosyncratic c**p. The only remix worth commentating is the Lustmord remix of Monolith - Monolithic dub. But still this semi-trip hop remix does not quite make it to the finish line. It reminds me of The Mad Professor's remix of the Massive Attack Protection album. Interesting but annoying and shallow. Still I give the album 4 stars but that is just because I still find the original yet on this editon remastered tracks fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mortiis 7 Sep 2002
Format:Audio CD
The first song on the album parasite god is a very apporoachable song, it has a mix of techno beats, haunting vocals and metaly bits init, and is a thoroughly good preview of the rest of the album. The Smell of Rain is a really good album, it has memorable lyrics, and some nice gutar riffs and solos, but the most striking pointid the singers echoy voice it is brilliant you'll be trying to do it for the next three days after you first here this album, and when u finally get it you wont care that everyone is thinking youre weird because you will have joined with the mighty Mortiis. A thoroughly listenable album, one which u have to have on repeat if anything, and dont forget it sounds better if you try and project youre voice as well as sing hauntingly.

5.0 out of 5 stars a very original album 22 Sep 2004
Format:Audio CD
Many people tend to avoid mortiis and have preconceived ideas that stem from his appearance.Though for those people who can get over the ignorance of appearance,they will find mortiis is a very original and unique artist.The smell of rain has a very desperate and sad feel to it,but its a beautiful saddness.The smell of rain sees mortiis lost in himself and in despair,obvious songs that portray this are "monolith","everyone leaves","masrshland" and "antimental". It's an album well worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very pleasant surprise 9 May 2007
By JamesH
Format:Audio CD
I came across Mortiis completely by accident as the support act at a Deathstars gig, liked what I heard, bought this album and it's barely been out of my CD player since. The influence of early goth bands is very clear, with echoes of Sisters of Mercy, Fields of the Nephilim, Joy Division and many others, along with some excellent post-industrial, harder and more technological sounds. The album is best listened to all in one go as a single experience, rather than picking out individual tracks, but that said, I do tend to skip over Monolith (which IMHO is the only weak track on the album). Atmospheric and introspective in places, wild and aggressive in others, I like this album more every time I listen to it. A must for the collection of all fans of the dark side of music!

4.0 out of 5 stars Gothic disco heaven 27 Jan 2002
Format:Audio CD
after 3 hours of flicking inbetween mtv2 and the Kerrang channel on a rainy sunday afternoon my ears got a wakeup call when the vid for Parasite God was aired. what can i say... WOW! sooo impressed. Got the 'Smell of rain' straight away and cant stop listneing to it. After all the screamy-shouty angry music i normally listen to, Mortiis brought an air of calm and serenity to my cd collection. I have totally fallen in love with the cool 80's groves and Bowie signature voice of 'Parasite God' and 'Spirit in a Vacuum'. With all this you might think the ususal goth/metal crowd would shun such a thing, well not this one. This album is full of emotion and mystery, twist and torment, but just so happens theres a funky beat aswell and you just gotta dance....

The only album by Mortiis worth listening to. It's excellent. If you are at all religious then I would avoid it, for any rational person though I'd recommend it.
