SEVERAL songs stand out from this album, and it is their best to date. Maitri sings lead a little more than in the PORNOGRAPHIC MESSIAH. IN YOUR EYES is an amazing track, full of power. Usually, the live act is far better than the albums which are delicate things. HOWEVER, the knife live was awesome, the knife on record begs to be played loud. track 10, FUCKING IN SLOW MOTION is similarly passionate. VALOR sings a cruel betrayal song that most of us have felt: THE PAINTED AURA. Guest Appearance by DANI FILTH spoils it, but you can easily forget it(he only goes into a couple of tracks-not much though. The rest though fills you with a feeling, sick and longing, like a holiday starting and sucks you in to their poetic live act.
