"dusk, and the album about it"

This album starts of pretty typical CofF style, with the eerie sounding synth-type thing, closely followed by "Heaven Torn Asunder" which is nicely structured, with the usual pounding drums, and dynamic vocals.
No song stands out as particularly bad on this album, but in reply to that, none of the tracks seem outstandingly brilliant. Sure, the guitar work, is technical and sounds pretty impressive, and the songs are well written, but they just don't seem to stand out from each other. This could be because the songs are all pretty long, and the tempo changes often, giving the impression of a different song starting.
Saying that, I find "A Gothic Romance" a very impressive song.
Also, the choirs in "Dusk And Her Embrace" are a really nice touch.
Cradle of Filth defintely have found the formula for their songs, and they don't look like changing it. The seem happy with the way their songs come out, but I find that the songs seem to blend together..

Overall, the album is pretty well put together, even though no songs in particular stand out as being brilliant.

    I agree with Ariel on this one - and Funeral in Carpathia is my personal fave on this album.

    I love Cradle of filth they rule!Dusk and imbrace is one of my favorite songs by them.If you like this you should get "lovecraft and witch hearts".Cradle of filths style can get boring but every now and then they latch onto a winner like dusk and her embrace,malice through the looking glass,for those who died and not forgetting HHHEEERRRR GGHHHHOOOOOSSSSSTTTTT IIIINNNNN TTTTHHHHHEEEEEE FFFFFOOOOGGG Your op needs more deatil really.Edd.
