I start to re-upload all of them plus some new one now in January 2013. Every thing before that date as been deleted by the authority. Enjoy the music and if you like a band just buy it at your music store.

The album that has some Paradise Lost fans up in arms. Is it a great, well-orchestrated, defining pinnacle in a fairly decent catalogue? Or is it a whiny collection of sad, depressing drivel from a band that lost its greatness? I opt for the former. It's different. It's refreshing. Nick Holmes is at his eerie best on faves "This Cold Life" and "Blood Of Another". A perfect blend of goth and metal, Paradise Lost should have a larger fan base than they do. Yes, they've changed, sure they've toned down a bit, but they did it with style. Gosh, what a cool band.  

This disc is bottled intensity -- epic, dramatic, and intoxicating. Dark and sinister without resorting to screams and howls ... this band writes music that haunts you. From the piano line of "One Second" that opens the album, to the pained, slow pace of "Take Me Down", Paradise Lost weaves a musical tapestry that ensnares anyone who dares to listen. One for the ages. Among my favorite albums of all time.
