The third studio album Shades Of God from my favorite British Metal band Paradise Lost was the fist album of them I’ve heard. The year it was released, in 1992 I was on the way to my friend’s birthday. I remember as it was yesterday, he asked me to buy him some CD as a present, but he did not mention exactly what he wanted. I came to the music store and asked for something new and fresh, so I got this album. We’ve listened to it together and the next day I bought one more for me. That way I became a fan of the band and till now they continue to make me feel great with their music.
The vinyl I have is a new release and unfortunately is incomplete. Originally, the album has nine songs, the LP record I bought has only eight. One of my favorite songs “As I Die” is missing. Damn, I did not pay attention to that fact when I ordered it.
It is a 180-gram black vinyl record comes in a smooth beautiful sleeve.
The internal sleeve has all the lyrics, band’s black and white picture, list of the equipment they use and a thanks section.
The vinyl has remarkable album logos on it.
Overall, I’m very pleased of the sound and enjoyed listening to the album the analog way, it’s a first time I’m listening to the record. This is definitely one of my favorite albums and I can’t wait to get the new Tragic Idol and put it on my turntable. So, stay tuned, the April is coming soon!
