Agony never felt so good!,
This review is from: Songs of Darkness, Words of Light (Audio CD)
Thank you MDB. This is the MDB album I've been waiting for. This beats even The Dreadful Hours. The whole feeling that goes through this album is incredible. First time I heard it..it was ok...second and third time..it blew away the "ok". This Powerful darkness balanced with passionate anger and beauty. I never did like TLATEOTW very much, but when The Dreadful Hours came..I knew something was again on the rise. And this is just the album that proves it. My Dying Bride is dying better than ever. This is Dark Monumental Doom Metal at its best..I've listened to this album for 3 weeks now. And it still hasn't left my cd player. For the first time I like everything about a MDB album. Except the artwork that is...it's not bad, but I have enough cds with that kind of artwork. But who the hell cares..it's the music that counts.
This is not commercial at all...this is just friggin lovable darkness!
This album opens great..continues brilliantly...and ends masterfully. I'm not sure I can wish for more from this group. If you think you like or liked My Dying Bride in the past...buy this album. You simply will never regret it! The extra stuff that comes with this limited edition is nice...it doesn't mean much to me though...but I'm happy I bought it..since it's great to have a great album with a different wrapping.
