5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Medieval February 18, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is a marvelous album. This album, while still operating within the Doom/Death sound of other MDB albums (except 34%), has a unique feel to it. One of favorite MDB songs is called Edenbeast. It reminds me of three things 1) Medieval/ancient Egypt 2) Eyes Wide Shut (when cruise walks into the masquarade ball) 3) a dark temple where weird rituals are being performed. This song is worth buying the entire album.

But back to the album. It is true that after 34.8% complete, this is a return to the MDB everyone knows and loves. I would not say though that this album sounds like Turn Loose....or The Angel.. While it isn't as experimental, it definitely sounds more mature... This album is heavy and uses keyboards to the same and sometimes better effect than the violin used in earlier albums. In fact, the guitars prove that you don't even need the violin to deliver the kind of atmosphere which is dispondent, sorrowful, and deeply touching, which MDB do so well.

However, it is not a perfect album. While the first 4 songs of the album are fantastic, the second half leaves a lot to be desired. It's almost as if they MDB ran out of ideas. Christliar is particular plods along with no real destination.

Nevertheless, essential for anyone who likes MDB's other works and for anyone who wants a dose of good, clean, well-written, thoughtful music.

5.0 out of 5 stars EPIC MISERY March 16, 2000
Format:Audio CD
After the experimental '34.7888% COMPLETE', My Dying... has returned to their original sound. That's right, guitar riffs (HEAVY) and DEATH GROWLS and the old logo are back. Songs are still long and some tend to drag, but the actual songs and riffs are some of the best since 'TURN LOOSE THE SWANS',so it doesn't really matter, with a welcome return to misery it's a must for their fans both old and new. Fave track 'CHRISTLIAR'

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Stuff. March 4, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album from MDB is very good. It is classic doom metal done almost to perfection. This album consists of a very emotional vocals/lyrics, (although Aaron does throw in some growls every now and then on this album) and slow guitar riffs/drums. The best songs on this album are The Light at the End of the World, Edenbeast, and Into the Lake of Ghosts. If you are a doom metal/metal fan, this album is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars FINALLY! What took so long? June 5, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Hot damn! MDB finally came back after they bombed on 38.77777something % complete. This album is better than most of their original work. To make it the best, it would have to have Marvin in it, their old violinist. All i have to say is, "GET YOUR VIOLINIST BACK!" But seriously, this album is a very talented work of art. It, indeed, is from the music master, My Dying Bride. They made a complete comeback after that percent complete album, which, i must say, was not very good. If you are a My Dying Bride fan, I promise you will love this album!

4.0 out of 5 stars They got back March 27, 2001
Format:Audio CD
After 34.788%, an album that disappointed loads of fans of My Dying Bride, because of the music it had, they are back now, back to the Turn Loose the Swans sound, with heavy guitar riffs and Aaron growling again. 9 master pieces again from My Dying Bride with the title track "The light at the end of the world" being one of the greatest from this album, very sad song.

4.0 out of 5 stars In depth listening April 5, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The Light at the End of the World was the next cd I got. The band returns to their much heavier and "doomier" sound which was along the lines of 1993's Turn Loose the Swans. The at the time of the recording, one of the guitarists Calvin had left the band so it was Andrew that recorded all the guitars. So for obvious reasons he probaly wrote more of the music and would make some sense why he feels this is the best MDB album.
This album I have found requires in depth listening. Not a cd you can just have in the background and catch glimpes of it here and there. Each song tells a fascinating story and the sounds of sorrow can be heard through each verse.
The mood can shift around alot on this release. From heavy to quiet, from slow to fast it has a very direct sound. Tracks "She is the Dark" and "The Isis Script" are some of My Dying Brides best tunes and have alot of firey energy and passion. "Edenbeast" is a long epic that can put you into a trance by Andrew's guitars and Aaron's sinister vocals. "The Light at the End of the World" is a story epic, a depressing journey into misery.Great keyboards on this song. "The Fever Sea" is a brutal track that sound best very loud. Sear me III is another fine track, very gothic and dark.The feel of the entire album makes me feel unassure about life and reality and nothing is far from the truth.
Another great release that took several listens to enjoy it more. So far I got all thier albums except "As the Flower Withers". Naturally, it will be next.

4.0 out of 5 stars Back-to-the-roots type of thing January 20, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I am a proud owner of MDB's complete discography, followed them since they appered with their 1st full-length in 1992. And I'd say, this is an average album of this excellent band. Average on their scale, good all in all, makes a 4-star rating.
After losing a violinist from their line-up, and after widely (somewhat undeservingly) unpopular experimental "37.588% Complete", Aaron Stainthorpe and his pals returned to what they had begun with over a decade ago. This is death-doom, with growling vocals, generally slow-tempo with sudden speedy breaks, with many melodic guitar parts. The attraction of this album is it's depressing mood, excellently created by Aaron's own vocal style. The disatvantage of it is that after they lost Martin Powell's violin, that used to add plenty of atmosphere to the tracks, the remaining band members seemed unsure of what to replace it with. Therefore we have certain parts here that lack development, or a spark of excitement in other parts, or that very much needed violin sound in yet another sections.
Not a bad album after all, but it could have been made better. And My Dying Bride proved their capability with an excellent successor to this record, "The Dreadful Hours".
Fans will get this CD anyway, casual listeners are better off chosing from other pages of MDB's now vast catalogue.
