Paradise Lost : Believe In Nothing

Did you ever have that problem that if you put your nice cold drink on your wooden table it leaves one of those rather unattractive marks in the shape of a ring? Well now, you need no longer have this problem! Paradise Lost have come with a great invention that will mean you'll never have to worry about those nasty rings anymore. For the mere price of a CD you can get the 'Believe In Nothing' ring prevention system. Forget about beercoasters this is the system for you! All you need to do is place it on your table and then put your cold drink on the system.

However, one word of advice. This device looks very similar to a music CD and you might accidentally put it in your CD-player. Do not do this under any circumstance! It will result in some of the most horrible noise you have ever heard!

All joking aside, I am not impressed with this album. I have been a long time Paradise Lost fan and I do also enjoy their newer work but this stuff is bad even for pop songs. Nick Homes sounds horrible, the tracks are uninspired and it is just boring. Every now and then an interesting riff emerges or a semi catchy tunes starts but that is more than anything else an exception to the rule.

It is absolute nonsense that Paradise Lost returned to the style of 'Icon' or any older album here. Avoid this album at all costs. Moreover I think I have already wasted enough words on it.
