Staff review by

Lake Of Tears is back with their third studio album, their first stroll down to mellower fields and their first approach out of the Doom into the Gothic area. A Crimson Cosmos is a fantastic album full of magical stories and fairy tales, the artwork and the inside booklet are really dreamy, each song has an extraordinary drawing reminiscent of a child tales book.

  I have a feeling band was smoking pot when wrote this one, it has heavy songs in begging, but later goes to softer sound, and I like song crimson cosmos, I like name crimson its beautiful f we visually image it, but bst songs are in the begging lost real doom sound and went to gothic . Boggie Bubble and Devils Diner are best songs
