Descripción del producto
Paradise lost est de retour, avec Tragic Idol le groupe signe un disque fort et identitaire. Probablement l'album le plus Metal et le plus Doom de Paradise Lost ! Les Anglais continuent ce qu'ils avaient amorcé avec In Requiem, puis Faith Divides Us - Death Unites Us à savoir un certain retour aux sources, cependant bien plus marqué et flagrant cette fois-ci ! L'album se veut très sombre, à l'atmosphère bien noire et musicalement très Heavy, La voix de Nick Holmes n'ayant jamais été aussi envoutante et agressive.

Old fans are quite happy that PD made an extreme sound shift their to old sounding classic records on their last two albums (which are pretty good), but to my ears, this record sound WAY more inspired than those records. Those two new records are good, but they lacked something. That something, which I don't know how to describe, I found here. The Tragic Idol is the album I was waiting from this guys.
To the record. Almost every song, if not all, are arranged beautifully and tastefully, and in some moments, range into the amazing. Since I pressed play, I was truly blown away by how tasteful, dark, heavy, atmospheric and melodic their new stuff sounded. The record production is immaculate! The composition is absolutely inspired and the vocals are amazing. But what really destroyed my senses was how beautiful the guitars fit into their old/new sound. Layer after layer after layer of guitar melodies on top of each other and above some of the most awesome dark riffs PD has composed in years. And even though this record is very heavy and doom, it's also VERY melodic, but If your looking for melodic as in catchy ala One Second, I may say that some of that stuff is also here, but not as prevalent. The music is dark, heavy, very melodic, quite agressive at times, and in some occasions, sad (in the beautiful way). This is the best guitar stuff this band has recorded in years! The guitar work are really what make this record stand out. The drumming is also quite extraordinary and it has a more metallic approach than on previous records. A lot more signature changes, up beat, fast, double bass. Quite creative for a PD record. And the last thing that I should stand out is Nick Holmes EXTRAORDINARY vocals sessions for The Tragic Idol. This is by FAR some of the best stuff he has ever recorded. He is just flawless on energy, melody and reach!
I will give this album and absolute five stars. And for me, this is the real continuation of the Icon/Draconian era.
I love this record.
From my perspective, this may be the best Paradise Lost album. Ignoring comparisons to past work (different folks hear different parallels), the key with Tragic Idol is that the songwriting is brilliant. Song after song, the riffs and melodic structures are fantastic. The vocal work complements the guitar work perfectly - heavy when it needs to be heavy, lighter when it needs to be. The result is one of the most well-crafted metal albums I have heard in recent years.
A bit of an update to my review. . .thinking about this album a bit more, I figured out why I like it so much. Much of the song writing is very reminiscent to the structures (though not necessarily the exact sound) of Gothic and Shades of God. Effectively, the rhythm guitar lays down a "crunch" with the lead playing a clean melody line over the top. This is basically the approach on classic songs like Shattered (Gothic), Rapture (Gothic), As I die (Shades of God), and also used for Vallenfrye (though with a much heavier sound there). But indeed, I have been weighing this against their back-catalogue and it really is one of if not the best - lots of great hooks with some of the catchiest work at the end of the album.
I'm not going to bother comparing this to their older albums: "Draconian Times," "Icon," (probably) "Gothic" are all considered classics for good reason. But...those albums clearly had their roots in death metal. This album is in the heavier vein they re-embraced on their self-titled album, and that continued through "In Requiem" and "Faith Divides Us..." - if you liked those albums, you'll probably like this album. Those albums, and "Tragic Idol," are not death metal in any way. This album, like the recent others, is heavy music with a goth/doom feel to it...which is perfectly fine by me.
I dig this album...a lot.
However, I would have never bet that Paradise Lost would ever again release a CD that I would love as much as Draconian Times or Icon nor did I ever expect that they would really fully return one day to the musical style on these albums that made this band unique and famous in the nineties. And then they came out with Tragic Idol. I think I had tears of joy and pleasure in my eyes when I listened to it for the first time. This is the CD that I would have liked to come after Drakonian Times. It is not only the same style. It is the same high degree of quality, not only on an individual track here and there, but throughout the entire album. If you love the old material of Paradise Lost, this is a MUST BUY!
The only question now is where Paradise Lost is going to go from here. If they want to close the circle of development completely, we will receive a Death Metal album in 2-3 years. Lets see. I am definitely excited!
