Staff review by
"My home was cleared, history sold
Empty was my place
'Cept a picture on the wall
Of lovers in embrace."

The wind, the rain, the urban grey landscape and the thunderbolt are ingredients of a fabulous deep autumnal afternoon. They could also be components of a grandiose My Dying Bride album and I know you're not unaware of this. Especially when you start shivering to the sound of a weary church bell that so graciously managed to open the gates to a world you know you've been to before, but can always paint something different for you with the bleakest of colors.

Bad English
Tage Westerlund
A bit failure, going back to grows, DM parts in songs or D/D M parts in the songs, only what left was violin and great vocals
bad song writing ... bands should write 3 album and split up
Life is to short for LOVE, there is many great things to do online !!!

Excellent album. I can enjoy every song here, cant find the "failure". Obviously far away from their masterpiece mid-90s performances. Still beautiful Death Doom, at perfect melancholic pace. Title track belongs to their all-time best song writing. Hail Odysseus also standing out here.
