Customer Review

on 27 July 2012
...but was instead left feeling strangely underwhelmed. I can see what you mean and at the same time again can't quite put my finger on it. I'm unsure if it's Carl McCoy's insistence that everything should be perfect and he should be at the centre of everything that gives less freedom to the other musicians. There are some good points; the drums are excellent and much higher up the mix unlike the studio releases. However, you feel at times they are playing to a set formula. Moonchild an example: I've always like the end `rocking bit' on the studio release which is totally missing live. Electronics have always played a part in Fields of Nephilim and the CD lists `Machine MkII' which may have restricted flexibility of the songs unlike using live keyboard player.

But it's not all bad... Ceromonies is still the best live Fields of the Nephilim release, it can still move, Preacher Man and especially Mourning Sun are The Nephilim at their best, crunchy guitars, booming bass, powerful drums and McCoy's guttural vocals. In my opinion have always been sidelined to bands like The Cure or Sisters of Mercy but no-one can't say the Nephilim have not had a major impact on the alternative scene.

The DVD is a nice extra - to be honest I very rarely play music DVD's as they are less transportable while travelling or driving. There are a few strange edit cuts but nothing major. Overall, the package is nicely presented and this is well worth getting. If there was a half star 4.5 out of 5.
