4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite there (yet) !
Having seen NFD live recently (supporting the Mission), I had high hopes for this album. I really did want to love it, as I was well impressed with their live performance.
On first listen, I have to say that I was rather disappointed. My first thought was "Goth-by-numbers", even "Nephilim-by-numbers", but without the good tunes. Certainly they sound like the Nephs...

3.0 out of 5 stars Close But No Cigar!
...You know that film "Rock Star" where a fan from a tribute band gets to sing with his heros after the 'real' singer leaves? Well if you do it will no doubt spring to mind when you're listening to this album! Basically it's competent very Neph sounding goth rock, but not quite as good as the real thing, but hey if you're getting fed up waiting for McCoys album - buy it...

On first listen, I have to say that I was rather disappointed. My first thought was "Goth-by-numbers", even "Nephilim-by-numbers", but without the good tunes. Certainly they sound like the Nephs. Bob (how goth a name is that!) does a very good Carl McCoy impression, but is not quite up to the level of the Master. Musically, it's very competent Goth, but it lacks the subtlety of the Nephilim, both musically and lyrically (ok, a lot of Carl's lyrics were complete tosh, but they sounded good).
Having said that, after constantly playing the album in my car, I've actually grown to rather like it. If they could just come up with a few cracking songs, NFD could be the saviours of guitar-driven Goth. Promising ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! The best goth album for years., 12 Feb. 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: No Love Lost (Audio CD)
I can't help but think the previous reviewers are nit-picking a bit here. Sure, so Peter White's vocals are similar to Carl McCoy's; and, from the start, the verse for Blackened is very reminiscent of From the Fire; but is this not what Nephilim fans would want? It always amazes me how groups are lambasted for doing the 'same old thing'. But this is what the fans want! If we liked what they did to start with, why would we want them to change? And it's the same thing here: why would we find it so necessary to be critical of something similar?
So the point here is that Nephs fans should love this CD. I know I do. It's the best goth album since The Mission's Aura and, dare I say it, Fallen. It's somewhere between the traditional goth of FotN and the goth-metal of the Nefilim.
Buy it! Enjoy it! And if you think it's similar to the Nephs, but not quite there(!!), then so what?

5.0 out of 5 stars The Angel Of Goth Has Risen Once More, 2 Sept. 2005

This review is from: No Love Lost (Audio CD)
Far too many years ago now, I bought Dawnrazor and, since that day, have been a devoted fan of the Fields of the Nephilim, as they progressed "from Ghenna" through "Dawn Razor", "The Nephilim" and "Fallen", through their various manifestations; I devoured "Zoon" by The Nefilim. I thought that was it; that the Goth Spirit had died on Carl McCoy's lips...
OH HOW WRONG I WAS -
NFD have crossed the fields, have stepped out of the light and into the pulsating shadows of ancient glories, they have caused to rise once more the Black Winged Angel that is Goth Music in a way that stirs the souls of the truly faithful; they are not the Nephilim or the Nefilim, but they are both messengers and the message that we wanted, needed to hear for so long. If they sound like the Neph' then they have achieved their aim - to reanimate and reprise the most creative and imaginative genres of modern music; those moments that we lived for have returned to us again. And those who have cast off their black attire in favour of a life less interesting can again don the darkness, or hide away in shame of themselves...
NFD are not pale imitators, they are the rebirth and the proof that Goth Music never truly died. This is a vibrant, energetic album, lyrically and musically staking the bands claim to stand proud alongside such greats as the Nephilim/Nefilim, Sisters Of Mercy, The Cure and Bauhaus.
The Double- CD "No Love Lost: Live & Unleashed" further proves that NFD are not a manufactured band or a caricature; their stage performance is a force to be reckoned with, again, alive with vital energy that is the essence of both the live and studio albums; the thrashing guitars, the pulsing base, and haunting lyrics that ensure such fantastic tracks as "Blackened", "Lost Souls", and "Turbine" songs will be remembered alongside "Moonchild", "Alice", "Temple Of Love" and "Preacherman". If they have imitated anyone, they have only imitated the best and proven themselves as equals.
