Wow....that's about all I can say. It is amazing how critics alawys find some tuneless slab of drivel to perch atop their number top album list of each year. I read a great deal about this album in many stoner rock critics lists before I decided to buy in, and it was definitely worth the wait. This album is downright scary good. S-C-A-R-Y good. It has been so long since melody and true heaviness (sonically they are heavy, but the themes and the mood here is what is so jaw-droppingly heavy) have been meshed so effectively. Songs like the album opener Path to Enlightenment and the epic Visions of the Daughters of Time simply redefine rock music for the music listener willing to take the ride. Never has mellow been so heavy. Lucifer In Starlight is also a gem. You will FEEL this. Let down your guard and let this music emotionally cover you. Also, this just knocked Tool's Lateralus out of the top position in my house rotation. And all I am thinking is: what took me so long? Buy this, and be prepared for something different. Take the time for this to absorb. An album made with care and true heaviness. And don't forget to listen to Electric Wizard as much as possible as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strange are the things we choose to believe in... October 9, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A sprawling masterpiece! From the opening notes of "The Path to Enlightenment," Abdullah takes you on an exquisite musical journey that mixes themes of darkness and despair with those of hope and the sublime. The music oscillates between dense riff-driven monsters (listen to the epic "Awakening the Colossus") to soft, introspective musings ("Lotus Eaters"), uncovering a broad spectrum of moods and colors in the process. Fans of St. Vitus, the Obsessed, Alice in Chains and Soundgarden take note, though this album has enough surprises to appeal to fans of many eclectic tastes (such as Nick Cave, Radiohead, and the Sisters of Mercy).

5.0 out of 5 stars A Powerful and Promising Debut November 29, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Abdullah's first full-length album is excellent moody death metal. New comers to the world of Doom Metal and Stoner Rock are in for a treat. Jeff Schrilla's vocals are not the typical deep unintelligible screams of a lot of doom metal bands. Instead, it is more musical like Goatsnake or Acid Bath. The vocals combine with the distorted Sabbath riffs to create what I feel is some of the best doom metal available. Black Sabbath fans should enjoy Abdullah. I could almost compare "The Path of Enlightenment" to Sabbath's mightiest (War Pigs, Into The Void). On the other end of the spectrum, the sorrowful "Lucifer in Starlight" captures the hopelessness of hell. And "Lotus Eaters" is equally haunting. This album is solid. I cannot sight a single fault. I hope to see more of this band in the future, and I highly recommend "Abdullah".
