Label: Century Media
Serious and ominous as always, with the entire lineup except their drummer still intact from the late '80s, England's John Milton-inspired goth-metal progenitors still grind out plod-hopping dirge after dirge, managing the most clarity and gravity when they clear space for the kind of non-growly vocals that metalheads call "clean." That happens more in the album's second half, where they also build some adequate momentum in "Cry Out," then begin closer "Return to the Sun" with high-mass production suggesting stained-glass windows. Elsewhere, they wear their London-fogged dullness like a badge.
