Review by Warthur
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Another product, like Imperium, of Current 93's transition from industrial soundscapes to esoteric neofolk, Christ and the Pale Queens Mighty In Sorrow is also yet another Current 93 release that has suffered over the years from David Tibet's constant mucking about with track orders. In this case, later editions of the album rename "Night" as "Mighty In Sorrow" and tack on "The Red Face of God" and "The Breath and Pain of God".

It is, however, the first four tracks that really offer the meat here, like Imperium travelling from industrial nightmare to neofolk songsmithery; as for the rest, Night/Mighty In Sorrow is a goof-off track, a hyper-repetitive loop which seems to have been produced mainly to have something on the picture-free side of the picture disc which came with the original LP release. (In other words, a track nobody seriously expected anyone to play very often for a side of vinyl doomed to stay pressed against a wall when someone displays their disc). The other two latter-day editions are remixes or reinterpretations of material better aired on the four core tracks. It's still a solid release overall, but in either configuration it comes with too much baggage to be a classic.
