Paradise Lost

Icon

Reviewed by D.E.T

Paradise Lost's best release ever.Literally picks up where Shades of God(their previous work) left off,as Greg said that As I Die(the closing song of Shades of god)single-handedly shifted the bands song-writting and shaped the epic "ICON".All songs are amazing,but the super-hit remains the legendary "True Belief" .It's too bad that after cloning ICON,and naming it Draconian Times(best selling PL album to date),the band drastically changed their music orientation into what can only be called gothic pop-rock,and thus missing out on the opportunity of making Hit-songs like True Belief,Embers Fire,Your Face,Remembrance....But i guess we can all agree that songs like these come once in a lifetime
