Kariasakis, i don't fucking care about lyrics. Music is the most important part from the song. Lyrics come only after that. I listened Crimson Cosmos but i don't remember any song (can't say the same about other albums). That means it had nothing important in my point of view.
A friend of mine said that the new album is crap.

+{Radagast}+, maybe you like Neonai but it sounded like pop for me.

Wanna pop new Paradise Lost disco era albums are pop


I don't need that fucking pop.
The Neonai album was enough pop for me.


I didnt receved quote not
Me either I dont need pop in metal

Moons and Mushrooms is indeed an amazing album. A personal favourite of 2007 It's slightly dark, slightly psychadelic.. recommended

I had owned this band's full length Forever Autumn, I would say thats good album. Forever Autumn is very good song. I think that album, Forever Autumn dont have psychedelic, though some progessive bit.

And it's not so athmospheric as Black Brick Road. Every song in MAM kicks ass. Planet of The Penguins is amazing, and has a kickass title.

Yes! Planet of the Penguins is amazing.. a stand out track for me, too.

I've only listened to Black Brick Road a few times but MaM is far more enjoyable to me. Maybe BBR just needs to sink in more but MaM seemed far more moody and energetic.

Maybe you should try The Neonai, it's highly psychedelic, moody and energetic as you say... with a lot of electronic elements, it's an amazing album.

How about A Crimson Cosmos? It's a great album as well, actually IMO all Lake Of Tears albums are great

Lake Of Tears is one of the most distinctive bands out there, with their very own sound and lyrical stile.
First of all I usually don't find technically simple songs striking, but they have such power and charisma in their simplicity that I couldn't imagine them playing mindblowing solos or unorthodox and complicated rythms.
The same could be said about the lyrics, which are absolutely devoid of hard-to-understand expressions and braindamaging metaphores, yet they are perfect in their simplicity.

My personal favourite album is probably their latest release followed by "Headstones" and "Greater Art"

Keep making good music for years to come


I agree with this statement 100%... in fact I said that exact thing in an interview article I did a while ago. They somehow manage to be technically simplistic, but emotionally complex. There's something about their songs that have a great feel to them and makes them stand out from anything else out there.

This was the VERY FIRST band I had ever listened to and fell in love with and I owe them a lot. I agree with Headstones and Forever Autumn being their best albums. What's great about Lake Of Tears is that each album is something new, they continually progress and morph their style, which is very commendable in a band. I believe they've succeeded in their transformation on every album, although I'm personally not a big fan of The Neonai.

I love a lot of their songs, but I have to pick the song Eyes Of The Sky as a standout. The song is from Greater Art and it is absolutely brilliant. There's an amazing contrast between the heavy doom riffs and the poetic lyrics in the song. In my opinion, this is the best example of how Lake Of Tears manage to take any 2 song qualities and create something great out of it without having to be technically impressive like Dream Theater, for instance.

I am a Lake Of Tears fan, I really love this band, the "blissfull depression" (yes, that exists!) of Headstones and their psychedelic later approach, but if there's an album I can't stand, that is Forever Autumn... can't really understand the buzz around that shit, it lacks the heaviness that gives consistence to the other LoT albums.
