3 stars An hour with sadness and fury.

The second My Dying Bride album is a mix of funeral dirges, some catchy riffs and outburst of furious anger. Just like a depression.

My Dying Bride takes symphonic doom metal to another level on this album. Not to a more extreme or symphonic level than the debut album As Flowers Wither....... but still to a new level. Most of the songs and the riffs here are surprisingly catchy. That is the major change from As Flowers Wither. That and the more use of clean vocals instead of just death growls. The use of violin is also pretty good here. This album is obviously a transitional album between As Flowers Wither and third album The Angel And The River. My only gripe is the lack of any really good songs like the ones the debut album had. The album is also a bit repetetive and not as symphonic as As Flowers Wither. It is more back the basic doom metal here. But it is still a great album and one I recommend.

3.5 stars
