The music is absolutely fantastic. Everyone plays their part well. The keyboards are probably the most evil sounding keyboards I have ever heard on any album. Organ effects are mostly used in combination with the fitting, shabby production, you have the some of the most evil, atmospheric songs ever assembled. Another thing that I believe should be mentioned is Robin's bass work. As a bassist myself, I must say that Robin is a fantastic bassist. Listen to "The Forest Whispers My Name" for a good example of Robin's bass work. The drumming, done by the infamous Nick Barker who already showcases great talent, even for such an early release. The guitars are great, you even get a few ripping solos here and there. Dani's vocals are great. They are not quite as high pitched as you'll find in later releases, actually, a lot of his vocals on this release are quite deep. His lyrics are as poetic as ever, so fans of Dani's poetry will be fulfilled. Everyone does a great job.
All in all this is a great release for fans of dark music. I'm not going to call this black metal, like I said before, that is up for debate, at least for this particular release, but it is one evil ride.
Their instrumentals are fabulous! They are dark and classical. You can sense the evil underlying it's entrancing beauty. "Iscariot", "One Final Graven Kiss", "Darkness Our Bride", and even "In Secret Love We Drown" are all beautiful instrumentals. I wish they would release a whole album of only instrumentals like these. They would make for a great Halloween album to play. From two of their other albums, they did the instrumentals of "She Mourns a Lengthening Shadow", and "The Graveyard By Moonlight." After I first learned of these instrumentals from "Cradle of Filth", I started to search for more music like their instrumentals. I then discovered the groups "Nox Arcana" and "Midnight Syndicate." Their music plays well along side of these "Cradle of Filth" instrumentals. Maybe by now, "Cradle of Filth" has enough already released instrumentals on all their albums that they could release a compilation collection (and perhaps add a few new instrumentals).
The next thing that I love about "Cradle of Filth" is all their cool album artwork. Women, sex, and blood! I'd be happy to buy an artbook of all that "Cradle of Filth" has put together for their albums. Perhaps, a large coffee table book of their art.
The one thing that I don't care for with "Cradle of Filth" is their main vocalist. I can't enjoy that horrid, high-pitched screaming. Even by trying to follow the written lyrics in the booklet, his screaming barely forms any decipherable words. So, I just give up and let myself think that they are singing in a foreign language. Or, I could even imagine that I'm listening to a rabid dog barking from afar because I'm teasing it through the fence.
Anyway, I keep this disc for reference sake. When I need to make a CD and put these instrumentals in with a various collection, it's nice to have these available.
