This Barking Chicken Production was inspired by Decibel’s review of Paradise Lost’s latest LP ‘Tragic Idol.’ Scribe Chris Dick nailed it when he suggested that the album lacks "that mandatory full-length rules-all feel." I agree. Since this site is dedicated to the album-as-art concept, I took on the challenge of trying to re-sequence the material in an effort to build a more cohesive record. After further thought, I decided against limiting it to ‘Tragic Idol,’ but to drop the material that doesn’t fit as tightly and include select material from its stylistic forerunner, ‘Faith Divides Us – Death Unites Us.’ The strengths of these albums combined anew make for a mind-blowing front to back listen.
