The eleventh Paradise Lost studio album is simply titled as 'Paradise Lost'. Before I listened to the album, I thought it would introduce yet another change of style. Nonetheless, on this album Paradise Lost continues with their blend of melodic gothic rock and atmospheric metal, so this isn't a start of new era.
The music on Paradise Lost's self-titled album is rather alike compared to their previous efforts. I'm not sure if it's just me, but I'd already like to hear something new on their albums. Although the material on this album is rather well-performed, at times I wish there would be some surprising twists on their music. The progressions on 'Paradise Lost' are a bit too foreseeable.
The sounds were honed by Greg Reely, who mixed and mastered 'Paradise Lost' at The Green Jacket, Richmond, BC, Canada. There's not much to complain about the sounds, except for the cymbals... occasionally the cymbals contain a bit shrill-like flavour. Otherwise the sounds are great. The mastering has been handled with proficiency as well.
The fans of Paradise Lost will definitely like this new album since it's rather similar to Paradise Lost's previous albums. On 'Paradise Lost', the sounds are great but the music could be more innovative. This album is quite a safe bet for listeners of atmospheric metal and gothic-tinged rock.
There are samples of "Close Your Eyes", "Forever After", "Laws of Cause", and "Accept the Pain" among others on the official Paradise Lost website for you to listen.
