Staff review by
After the semi-failure (commercial but not artistic in my opinion) of "34.788 Complete", which had made them lose a huge part of their die-hard fans, the great English doom band has decided to come back to its roots... and has released this "The light at the end of the world", that is seen as a step backwards by most of metallers. An impression confirmed by the departure of the guitarist Calvin Robertshaw who had been the only one to support the last album.

Staff review by
After the different and experimental "34.788% Complete", a really good yet so shamefully underrated album, My Dying Bride managed to return during 1999 and along with them came nightfall and the mourning and only a slight remembrance of "the light at the end of the world" was vivid in the far horizon.

She is the Dark The song that summarizes and represents the whole album. All the songs are good... But this song depicts the album in the best way. My Dying Bride is a band with poetry... When poetry is the only thing that can make the difference, this is it : The Light at the End of the World

Bad English
Somehow MH was right and wrong
He was wrong that % album was better as this one, it was different, but he was right that this is not same as older ones... seems band was listened fans (dunno how, those days was no I net) , and wanted to re write something as old. Violin sucked, guitars was bad, but vox was OK
Life is to short for LOVE, there is many great things to do online !!!

This is one of their best albums. Songs like She is the dark, Into the lake of ghosts, and Sear me III belong to my all-time favourite MDB songs. The album scores about 9.3 for me.
