Paradise Lost : One Second

Any of the old fans Paradise Lost had not yet scared away with 'Draconian Times', were given the scare of their lives with this one. In their search for an even more open sound and the need to experiment, electronics get introduced that overshadow any metal or rock sound this CD still has.

The name of depro electronic/dance/goth/pop wizards Depeche Mode is often mentioned when people describe this album and I have to agree on that one. Most of the songs are extremely catchy and probably also danceable. While this album has little to do with the old Paradise Lost, Doom-metal or well... metal in general it also isn't a bad album.

Goths will probably enjoy this album and older Paradise Lost fans will generally need to give it time... a lot of time! A bit of a shame is the fact that the first two tracks are a lot stronger then the rest of the album. As the album continues it can not regain the strength of the first two tracks.
