Post Re: Paradise Lost - "One Second (20th Anniversary Edition)"

So, the list from Greg Mackintosh is this:
Quote:
1 – Shades of God
2 – Faith Divides Us – Death Unites Us
3 – The Plague Within
4 – Icon
5 – Lost Paradise
6 – In Requiem
7 – Draconian Times
8 – One Second
9 – Gothic
10 – Host
11 – Symbol of Life
12 – Tragic Idol
13 – Paradise Lost
14 – Believe In Nothing


It's interesting I suppose in terms of understanding how much fun did they (or just Greg) had recording each album, but that's about it.
I doubt this has any merit speaking of the actual music - you can see that latter releases ge widely spread all over the list, which is clearly nonsence because there's hardly that much difference between In Requiem, Tragic Idor and FDU-DUI (and arguably The Plague Within too). Yet first one is in the middle, second - far down, and third - #2. Nonsense.

Same if you consider that In Requiem is above Draconian Times here, and Lost Paradise is above those, while Gothic is below. Nonsense again.

Then you have One Second and Host, and One Second is still middle-ish, but Host already going down (while in my personal opinion Host is noticeably better music-wise - better written, more diverse, etc) That's quite weird still, isn't it?

The only thing consistent with previous interviews etc is low ranking for Believe in Nothing, which musically isn't bad, but PL members mentioned multiple times in interview that recording process for that was very disorganized, different instruments were recorded separately at different times, and thus they had no fun jamming together (they also say this caused bad sound of the complete mix, but I frankly don't hear that - not as a drastic difference at least).

P.S. Yeah, about the #1 - are PL about to re-release it and have a PR preparation here? Or is it just for the shock value to make people talk about PL again? :-)
I mean I like Shades of God, but #1 album of PL? I don't want to be abusing word nonsense too much ;-)

P.P.S. The topic feels incomplete if we don't make our own ratings IMO
So, here we go:
Quote:
1 – Draconian Times
2 – Icon
3 – Gothic
4 – Lost Paradise
5 – Symbol of Life
6 – Host
7 – Paradise Lost
8 – Believe In Nothing
9 – Shades of God
10 – The Plague Within
11 – Tragic Idol
12 – Faith Divides Us – Death Unites Us
13 – In Requiem
14 – One Second


P.P.P.S. I haven't heard Medusa yet.
