Don't really understand all the "negativity" towards this album. Sure, it's a different kind of album than like say the first four, but the songs are still astonishing (with a strong Sabbath/stoner vibe to it). Altough not perfect, the cold and almost grim atmosphere lifts the album out of the sea of mediocrity and "dumb" Sabbath worshipping into something far more interesting and worth-while.

Most of the middle Candlemass records are just some very well-done Black Sabbath worship, but From The 13th Sun comes right out and admits that from the very beginning. The album was dedicated by the band to Sabbath, and though these are all original compositions, they may has well have been Sabbath songs to begin with. Still, like Dactylis Glomerata and to a lesser extent Chapter VI, the material here is really solid and quite fun in some spots, with Bjorn Flodkvist doing a particularly good job as main vocalist. The riffs are good, the drums are good, the bass is good, there's really not a whole lot to it other than that. That said, there's some nice atmospheric moments here that help keep the record engaging and easy to listen to as the interludes segue through tracks. Enjoyable if unoriginal, From The 13th Sun is good stuff for fans of Candlemass (and Sabbath).

The spacey production and themes save this album from being just another Sabbath rip-off. Crushing space doom, anyone?
