Guest review by
"Não há duas sem três" is a popular Portuguese proverb and basically, though it has no direct translation to English, means that if you have two, you'll have three. What do I mean with this saying? I mean that after two masterpieces we had to be blessed with a third one.

"Sin/Pecado" is very different from the previous albums, but Moonspell has taught us that that is positive and that we don't have to fear change. This is the most calm Moonspell album, still influenced by Doom Metal but more centered in the Gothic Metal environment, giving this album a newer, more emotional and beautiful athmosphere. For this reasons the rough vocals aren't as used as in "Wolfheart" or "Irreligious" and clean vocals make most of the album, showing us another side of Fernando Ribeiro's singing capabilities.

Rediscovered this album about 5 years ago and since then I really enjoy it. Easily among my top 5 if not top 3 albums of theirs.

The Hanged Man is an awesome track. Best on the album.
