This was the first album released by Christian Death and contains the original line-up (before Valor).Now very difficult to get hold of this CD is where such classics as Romeo's Distress, Spiritual Cramp and Deathwish can be found. Rozz's vocals can often be quite harsh but the muscianship is so good good that it only adds to the power of the album.This release has the Deathwish EP as bonus tracks at the end.

Another winter approaches and what delights await us 'Old Goths'? The much welcomed re-release of an absolute classic. Slip back in time with Rozz Williams. Delve into the quivering, whining vocals, haunting guitars and dark moody baselines which became the trademark of this genre. This is the stuff of dreams. With tracks like Romeo's Distress, Spiritual Cramp and Burnt Offerings sending shivers up your spine, there is a raw, naked quality to this ablum, like the first tentative steps in the stilettos of Goth's past. More subtle and delicate than the later, more aggressive Velor material, Only Theatre of Pain will bring the memories flooding back. And for those of you who are not familiar with this album, prepare to open your eyes and find what's been missing from your lessons in Goth. Enjoy!

This album may be almost 30 years old but it still stands as one of the best gothic/death rock releases ever, songs like "spiritual cramp" and "romeos distress" still get aired in goth clubs to this day.Ps it also features the Deathwish EP as a bonus which includes my all time fav Christian Death song "Dogs".
