3 stars Compare 'Resonance' to that of 'Resonance 2' and the listener would not believe that they are by the same band. While there is still the darkness and emotion, this is a band that at times seem as equally influenced by doom as they do by death. Opener "Lovelorn Rhapsody" takes a long time to pick up the pace, but even then it shows a distinct nod to Sabbath. The first verse of "Sleepless '96" has much more in common with Joy Division, with an extremely strong bass line, and although it does try to break into hard rock country it does return to the theme time and again. Highlight of this collection has to be their version of Roy Harper's "Hope" which shows an emotive rock band at their very best. This also contains a video, "Mine Is Yours".
