Hahah ok, I will when I'm home (tomorrow most likely). It's nothing special really, I'm not sure it really says much.

I can.

He's a goofball Phil Anselmo wannabe who thinks the guitar was a "slave instrument."

Ok. As unlikely as it would seem, I like Symphony X. They were one of the first more “underground” metal bands I got into back in high school, so I’ve always had a special place for them despite not having any further interest in progressive metal. Regardless, by no means can I call Paradise Lost a good album. They seem to have opted for a “heavier”, groove metal sound in the majority of the riffs here (a change that was hinted at on The Odyssey but was kept in balance), and beyond that simply rehash material they’ve done before. Same old solos, the same old choruses, the same old ballads, except all weaker than their predecessors. Where they used to write songs that flowed wonderfully and were excitingly epic, now they seem to write songs that have little feeling and just hasten to get to their choruses, which feel out of place. This gives the songs an underlying feeling of pointlessness (see “Set the World On Fire” and “Seven” for examples of this). Also, they don’t really do such a good job of telling the story of Paradise Lost (since when is it a love story?). The Latin songtitles are laughably bad, but that’s excusable—it’s metal, after all, and practically any band that uses Latin uses it incorrectly. To wax nerd for a minute, “Oculus ex Inferni” means basically “Eye from of Hell”, and “Divus Pennae ex Tragoedia” is so wrong it’s basically meaningless. A translation of “Divine Wings of Tragedy” (which is what they were aiming for) would go something like “Divae Pennae Tragoediae”. “Ex” means “from”, not “of” in the sense they mean it. Anyway, I don’t see any real reason to choose this album over their other, better offerings, unless you’re a die-hard fan. Overrated.
Despite the fact that we disagree on like absolutely everything, I actually pretty much agree. Other than the title track which I absolutely love I think it's a real shitty excuse for a SX album.
