draconian times isn't as good as icon, it's like icon with some of the edges sanded off. still good, but i'd put a few others over that album like gothic and faith divides us, death unites us.

Apparently Nick and Greg are working on a "dark electronic" side project but as petty as it is it bums me out if it's not under the PL moniker tbh. They remastered Host so it's not like Nuclear Blast hates their legacy

I mean, i'd prefer it under a new name honestly. One Second proved they can do Electronic music but The Host wasn't stellar and it just didn't sound like Paradise Lost. They just don't want to repeat the same mistake as last time which led to a slew of mediocre releases until Faith Divides Us.

I warmed up to Ghosts, it's just a good fun 80's goth tribute.

Host is absolutely stellar and is far better than One Second and One Second is not electronic music at all. It's straight goth rock. Also Host absolutely 100% sounds like Paradise Lost.

Believe in Nothing is fairly solid but kind of bland. I like Mouth tho

The original Believe in Nothing is absolute garbage



The remix is a straight 3.5 tho

I have to say Darker Thoughts and the solo in The Devil Embraced are greatest musical moments of the last 15yrs for me. Fucking magnificent.

nice to hear it, this is by far their best album since DT, overall second best I'd say, and Darker Thoughts is their best opener ever and one of the best songs they've ever made

Icon is obviously better than Draconian Times, Draconian Times isn't even one of the better PL records. DT is the bloated, less catchy, more polished, less interesting version of Icon.

Draconian Times IS the best PL record and IMO there isn't anything that's close on an album level except for maybe this. It's a seminal record and one of the best metal albums of all time. And coming in at almost 49 mins I don't see how that's bloated. To each his own I guess, but there's no way that Icon as a whole is better than DT and I'm willing to die on that hill

Embers Fire is the best opener



Widow, True Belief, and Sweetness are the top 3 best Paradise Lost songs
