I own a number of Moonspell's albums, but I think this one is by far the most interesting out of them all. I love how they threw in the industrial twist here, making things much more experimental sounding and appealing to both fans of Moonspell's earlier works as well as fans of bands like My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult and Ministry. I see that a lot of people rip on this album pretty badly, yet still give it a good rating. I'm not sure what that's all about, but I can tell you that this album will keep your attention with its unique variety of songs ranging from very screamy (Lustmord) to very heavy (Soul Sick) to almost tribal (title track).
Fans of Moonspell's first couple albums will likely not appreciate this one as much as someone with a taste in older industrial looking for something a little darker or with more of a gothic twist (ala Theater of Tragedy, maybe). I am personally a fan of just about every genre of metal with perhaps the exception of rapcore, and I find this album to be a nice blend of things. I especially gave the song "Soul Sick" a lot of air time on the radio while DJing in Nashville, TN. There are also a number of nice melodies thrown into the mix. I highly recommend this album.

Anyone who knows anything at all about Goth music knows that it's not mainstream and it's not all about whining and moping. And it's FAR from MTV related. Heck, they don't even play Marilyn Manson on MTV anymore. Goth has ALWAYS been an underground phenomenon, with only a couple bands that have (temporarily) made it to the mainstream. It's irritating when people speak out in ignorance.
This album was something of an experiment for Moonspell. This time they blended a militant aggro Industrial Metal element to their trademark heavy GOTH sound. Moonspell has never put out a bad album, but to me the albums that have captured what I consider to be the true Moonspell spirit are Wolfheart, Ireligeous, and Darkness and Hope. Yes I missed the corny Vampire lyrics on this album. I also really missed the "Transylvania Rock" atmosphere of those classic albums. I was so glad when they brought those dynamics back in Darkness and Hope. With this album they've presented an interesting Goth Metal release with an "Industrial" Metal edge. Still It didn't grab me the way their other releases have.

A mixture of death,gothic,industrial and electronica,this is an extremely adventurous and well-crafted album coming from one of the better representatives of the genre.Moonspell are an amazing Portuguese act,capable of playing with the limitations of the death-metal format,ultimately giving new shape to old things...

Moonspell demonstrate a flawless ability to blend industrial metal into a mellow gothicdark, mean and moody atmosphere - best appreciated late at night in the dark. A vastly underated band with a talent for styling some great songs, `Cant Bee' being a particular favourite... and the title track is equally awsome. This is the first Moonspell album I have listened too and they have quickly become one of my favourite bands, they demonstrate a fantastic ability to combine their talent for playing good into some outstanding songs. I was particuarly impressed by the vocalist Fernando Ribeiro whose (sometimes harsh and growly, sometimes soft and smooth) voice fits beautifully into the whole picture. As a whole the album travels through so much variety and experimentation of style that I found it took the tracks out of context listening to them individually. The instrumental track `K' is a wonderfully relaxing finale to a (sometimes raging, sometimes peaceful) beast of an album. Highly recommened to those who know what it is to `love' music. Well, you know what I mean (Britney Spears fans steer clear).

I discovered this album completely by accident. I read someone told me they were good black metal so I bought it. Turns out they're goth not black metal. The album blew me away. It's mood constantly changes. It also has interesting rythms and beats. If you're into goth, metal, industrial, or death metal, get this album.

Well, there is more in this record then just power. For all Moonspell fans around the world: buy it! Like all the previous records, Butterfly Effect is different but with pieces from all the other records. It is a great work from Moonspell, but I still miss the simplicity and authenticity of Wolfheart.

First of all, as a death and black metal fan I am sick of the way these guys get ragged on for "going commercial". These guys have always been a unique band that doesn't follow trends, so just lighten up already! I don't classify these guys as either death OR black metal because they are NOT! They are their own unique entity!I have been a devout fan of moonspell since the Wolfheart days (94-95 or so) and while I think that the first two albums (Under the Moonspell and Wolfheart) were their best I still have to love'em. Lets get something straight, first. I don't consider this to be "goth", because when I think of "goth" I think of trendy MTV "whine, whine, whine, I'm soooo depressed" type BS. These guys are nothing of the sort. When they started out I guess they fit snugly into the atmospheric death/black metal category. They started incorporating more melodic and electronic sensibilities over the years and have now created an encompassing sound that is almost cinematic. This development can be heard from Irreligous up to this newest one. The songs are well written and engaging with neat hooks and interesting electronic accents. Fernando Ribiero (aka Langsuyar, on the older albums) has a hypnotic voice that utilizes his Portugese accent to maximum effect. Definitely a good cd to purchase if you like atmospheric metal, and I strongly encourage you to go back and check out this bands fabulous back catologue.
