Review


This is a re-release of Pale Divine's third album from five years ago, coming out at the same time as their newest one is getting released. I won't say this is old label I Hate being dicks, but I got a promo of this and not their new one. . . hmmmmm.

This is old Pale Divine, which is much more Sabbathy and less original than new Pale Divine. I mean, yeah, Pale Divine are all about Black Sabbath, but in their earlier career they were all about imitation rather than homage, and in a lot of places on this disc you will swear you already heard these songs somewhere. The production is retro and fuzzy, lacking the punch I would like in favor of laid-back trippiness. I won't say this is a bad album, but it is leaning too hard on the Sabbath-worship and not hard enough on creating really good songs. So this is enjoyable, but not exciting.
