I’ve been a fan of Paradise Lost for almost 25 years, since 1990. This year the band celebrates their twenty five years on stage with the release of limited edition 10″ EP, which contains three tracks. One of them is a brand new, titled “Loneliness Remains“. Two other ones are already well known for a very-very long time. First song is “Gothic“, initially introduced on a “Gothic” album in 1991; and the second one is “Our Saviour” from “Lost Paradise” released in 1990. Both of them have a new fresh sound as they were re-recorded this year.
Definitely, this compilation is a collectible item not only for vinyl records lovers, but also for those, who listens CDs. Though the vinyl has only three tracks, it also comes with a CD, which contains the ones are on a vinyl, plus 11 more. Here is the full track list:
1. Loneliness Remains
2. Never Take Me Alive (SPEAR OF DESTINY cover version)
3. Ending Through Changes
4. The Last Fallen Saviour
5. Last Regret (Lost in Prague Orchestra Mix)
6. Faith Divides Us – Death Unites Us (Lost in Prague Orchestra Mix)
7. Cardinal Zero
8. Back On Disaster
9. Sons Of Perdition
11. Missing (EVERYTHING BUT THE GIRL cover version)
12. Silent in Heart
13. Gothic 2013
14. Our Saviour 2013
In addition to the CD, the package includes a nice bootleg, where all tracks listed above are represented with introductions from the band members.
Here is the short video demonstration of the package:
The sound of the record is fantastic, it’s deep and sharp. Usually German records have a very good quality, and the fact it’s a 45 rpm record, makes it sound even better.
Looks like now, I have all available Paradise Lost vinyl records in my collection. I really love that band, their music follows me for almost a century quoter; I’m still enjoying it and always find new elements to explore. Happy Birthday folks! Please, continue spreading great music to the world.
