Initial Impressions: Paradise Lost: Tragic Idol
This album is probably the closest to Draconian Times of any of the albums that I have heard. I have not heard really close to all of the band's albums, I will be honest about that. This is not as fast-paced as some of the tracks from that album, in particular the hard-driving "Once Solemn". This is melancholic gothic metal with a lot of melody. Nick Holmes's voice still sounds as great and emotional as ever.
Paradise Lost once again has put out a terrific album of gothic metal. This is probably now my second favorite album from the pioneering band.
