"Tell me that I'm a sinner... "

So here is the album that has made this famous English band lose a huge part of their first-hour fans... Paradoxically, it's the one that has made me know My Dying Bride. As I had never heard "The Angel and the Dark River" before, I absolutely couldn't be prejudiced against this new one, and I have been able to immerse in it objectively, something that unfortunately some of the fans did not do...

After the renowned and poetic "Like Gods Of The Sun" My Dying Bride started working on the successor of this brilliant album. Sadly, Martin Powell announced to the rest of the band that he would leave My Dying Bride and everything happened so suddenly, with the rest of the band having to keep on working on the new album without an important part of them, Powell's keyboard/piano and violin work.

This album always gets bashed for being different, and even though it has some awful moments but "The Whore, The Cook And The Mother" and "Under Your Wings And Into My Arms" are two of my all time favorite MDB songs

Fucking Wow......this was pretty bad, I must say.......What were they thinking? Like is this some sort of feeble attempt at sounding "Grunge"?


"34.788%...Complete" is to My Dying Bride as "Turbo" is to Judas Priest.

......well, at least the majority of their discography is excellent though.

Heroin Chic is... Weird. But good.

I wouldn't say it's retarded but it's definitely on the odd side of things. Which is understandabe considering it comes from a dream one member had at the time, and dreams are pretty weird anyways.

Quote:
The album's title was derived from a dream guitarist Calvin Robertshaw had where he was told the human race had a limited lifespan on earth, 34.788% of which had already expired.

I personally think dreams are fascinating in how bizarre they are. I even keep a notebook close to my bed to write out my dreams as soon as I wake up just to have a laugh months later. I once dreamt the aliens came to earth and I saw Don Francisco hang himself out of desperation as the aliens came closer to him and wanted to lobotomize him.

I have no idea why you wouldn't make at least one song out of that.

Actually, while I thought this to be crap at the time it turned out to be a good album. Much better than most of their recent stuff.

Yea never quite got the fuss about this one. It's different, and sure not that great, yet far from their worst stuff, especially the atrociously lame For Lies I Sire - everytime I mention it I get a cold shiver down my spine...

It's different, but that does not make it bad. Of course, this is far below most of their works, but, tbh, I actually wish they would go this way again.
