This album, „Reason", released by the known Dutch doom band, has seen the light this year. I must say it is one of the best albums from the current year. And you don't have to be a die hard doom fan to value it.
Actually, I've read somewhere someone said that the album fits the weather from that country. I've never been in The Netherlands till now, but I believe that.

Lyrics of The Sun Doesn't Shine Anymore have nothing to do with geography at all.

It is a favourite doom album of many a doom fan. That's the reason it was re-released last year.

8.5/10 leaning slightly towards a 9 for me.


An album very diverse in quality for me.
While In Pouring Rain and This Inner Twist are the best the band has ever produced, for me the rest of the album is not quite at par unfortunately.
Still a very enjoyable album, overall around 8.0 for me.

I would add The Silent Witness to that list also, the last 2 songs aren't as good as the first 3 for sure.
