4 stars An epic beginning.

One of my favorite debut albums (although its technically not the debut, if there really is that 1 unreleased album copy) that shines with a grace that some of the other DD albums didn't achieve. Many normal bands would be jealous of the hooks these guys have, and other bands certainly lack the creativity and peculiarities of a band like Devil Doll.

The opening 10-12 minutes of this album/song is absolutely amazing, stunning, excellent band work. It fully opens the doors for the concept to be implemented. Not as uncanny as the Sacrilegium project, but nonetheless very fulfilling, especially those privy to excellent violin work. Mr. Doctor's vocals are really love or hate, there's little in between on this guys style. I find him to make for an excellent storyteller and is the driving force of the music, the rest merely being players.

Not as emotionally complex, compelling, or unique as some of their other efforts, but no less quite excellent. Fans of darker music will surely be rewarded by this find, and if you happen to run into an actual copy of the album, you'll find it worth quite much. An enriching and rewarding experience.
