Best tracks are 'Mortals Watch the Day', 'Embraced', 'Pity the Sadness' and the excellent 'As I Die'. But there is not much of a lull in quality with the rest. They are all just longer, and a little more rambling. But on the whole this is a fantastic, fresh sounding metal album. And they would continue to evolve...
Historically this was the third CD of Paradise Lost's that I had heard. The first was Gothic, I then went backwards to get Lost Paradise.
They were each good, with Gothic being the better, but this CD really stood out too me. Instead of a death like grunt it is more of a sorrowful bellow if that is even possible. The vocals are not normal singing yet, but they are not death styled either.
Also, there is a much stronger sense of melody here which shows that the band was starting to find its unique sound that lead to the many changes in the future including electronica and a predominately clean vocal sound.
The riffs here though are both doomy and melodic giving a lot of the songs an unusual power. The drums were suitably powerful with an epic and when necessary thunderous feel.
At times almost upbeat, brooding, sorrowful and angry in its own tormented way this album was the first of the major UK doom acts to really get my interest. (The others were My Dying Bride from Turn Loose the Swans and Anathema from Silent Enigma).
Crying for Eternity, No Forgiveness, Your Hand in Mine and As I Die are my favourite songs off this album.
As I Die was the albums single.
This album may not have aged as well as some of there others but I have to give it a high rating just for the impact it had on me at the time. I will never really be able to subjectively review it without a somewhat nostalgic reminder of the emotions I went through with it at the time. For newer listeners, I would recommend you listen to samples first as this may not be what you expect from this band - again, given how diverse there changes were after this album musically.

It's rare, a bit raw, but it has its own magic, it turns addictive.Published 1 month ago by Paul Brosnan
I had this on Vinyl years ago, and loved it then and sort of went off it as The Lost got lost in my opinion. Fine riffing and very clever instrumental interplay.Published on 5 Feb. 2009 by Mr. J. B. P. Hitchins
