What, no comments here!?!
This is a masterpiece! It is clearly the best album by a (used-to-be) great band.
I even prefer it to the highly-praised Wildhoney. Clouds is much darker and more intense.
Favourite songs: The sleeping beauty, Undressed and of course A caress of stars.
Compared to those days, it is actally sad to see what happened to this band.
Up to Prey all their albums were still pretty good I would say (though of course not comparable to their good-old doom-death days).
Thereafter they went downhill pretty fast.
