Maybe their "DOOMest" album since "GOTHIC"?

Really good to my ears!!

It even contains a reworked version of their song "Frozen Ilusion" from their very begining.

Long live Paradise Lost.

After a few spins I can say another strong record, the opener Fearless Sky just like the continuation of The Plague Within. I feel the previous one even stronger though, The Plague Within became a modern classic in my book.

I am in the camp with you, Long Live Paradise Lost!

listened to it few times, sounds promising. but after reading mackintosh's ranking PL albums on decibel last week, i found my self floating in post Host era especially. in requiem, paradise lost, faith divides us, a plague within.... all very good records. what ever they came up with, they did it with class (minus believe in nothing)

I've decided to give Paradise Lost another shot. Where's the ideal place to start?

Old stuff obviously, Gothinc then the rest, if you are familiar with those and I suppose you are then start with The Plague Within, their best in their newer era and as I wrote above for me almost on the same level as the early recordings

I think it's even better than the last one and harks back even more to their Gothic/Shades of God era but without being a replication. The way that they've grown heavier and heavier again over the past ten years without repeating themselves yet still retaining their unmistakable sound is pretty amazing.

"Medusa" is a truly solid release. Not their best, far from that, but definitely decent.

New album is really good. Fell of the wagon with the One second stuff, but after the Plague i checked them out again. Tragic Idol is also a strong album with some really killer tunes. Think Vallenfyre did them good.

I agree about Tragic Idol. I recommend checking out the two before it as well. "Faith Divides Us..." is actually heavier than Tragic Idol.

Thanks, will do. Was obsessed with this band for the many years in the nineties. Gregor Macintosh must have one of the most distinctive styles ever!
