This album definately has more than one face to it: Emotionally charged ballads such as 'Her Ghost In The Fog' and 'Saffron's Curse' to more heavier tracks such as 'Lord Abortion' and 'Cthulu Dawn' mixed in with soft instrumentals such as 'Creatures That Kissed In Cold Mirrors' and 'At The Gates of Midian'.
This album is definately worth the money, Like I said, Very listenable, even when youre in a different mood. Happy, Sad, Angry...
This is my favorite Cradle of Filth album. The music almost provides a mental landscape, if you really listen to it.
I recommend this album for those just getting into Cradle of Filth.
Anyway, On with the review
01. 'At The Gates of Midian'
A nice track... Nothing special about it, doesn't do the rest of the album justice.
02. 'Cthulu Dawn'
One of the heaviest on the album, I think this most suits the "black metal" genre. This track should give you an idea of whats to come with the rest of the album.
03. 'Saffron's Curse'
Well, Well, Well... One of my favorites on the album. A beautiful, dark, emotionally-charged ballad what seems to be about a man's spouse who has died(My description may sound similar to that of Her Ghost In The Fog, but trust me both of the songs have huge differences)This song really lays down the Orchestrated sense of the album.

I find that their combination of hard guitars with softer instruments makes great-sounding music. When I listen to some of the tracks at work, I find myself more productive/typing faster, too.

2. cthulu dawn- this song is very heavy, an excellent song(10/10)
