The Best Paradise Lost Album Ever
on 21 January 2002
I am a huge Paradise Lost Fan and in my opinion, this is their best album ever, and one which I'm sorry to say they may never equal. As most Paradise Lost fans know, the group seems to have gone through 3 phases in their life cycle: Death Metal (the first 2 albums), Gothic Metal (the next 3 of which Draconian Times is the last) and the new-age rock electronica (the last 3 albums). Personally I'm a huge fan of the middle 3 and Draconian Times is clearly the best of them all. Fans of 'Shades of God' and especially 'Icon' will love this album seeing that it is the natural progression from them. Fans of the first 2 albums may not like it seeing that it moves further away from the Death Metal sound of their earlier days. Fans of their new music may want to check it out to see what Paradise Lost was all about. In my opinion a must for every self respecting Gothic and Paradise Lost fan.
