CD Reviews

Best Nephilim starter album
R. Reece | 03/26/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's been said before but it cannot be repeated enough - this is simply an awesome live album. If you are new to Fields of The Nephilim then this is the perfect place to start as it combines tracks from their 3 prior studio albums, i.e. Dawnrazor, The Nephilim and the most excellent Elizium. I have owned Earth Inferno since it's original release and still find it fresh. Too bad they didn't include the extended version of Chord of Souls from the Visionary Heads video that complements this release. Overall, Sumerland and Last Exit for the Lost are standouts for me but there isn't really a bad track to be found. Do yourself a big favor and pick up a copy."
Don't call it goth, it's more than that
R. Reece | Orinda, CA United States | 12/03/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Almost nobody ever finds Fields of the Nephilim. On some of this live album, one wonders whether the scene was a small club, not the arena these sounds deserved. The Neph were a staggeringly good band that hit their stride only briefly, and this was right in the middle of it. The music is loud, melodic, moody but usually brisk. The instrumentalists are crisp and tight, virtuoso within the bounds of what they're trying to do. My only complaint is with the overly democratic mix, which buries my favorite soaring guitar parts from "Moonchild" and "Love Under Will." But the inimitable vocals of Carl McCoy aren't mixed up too far either. It's a great live sound. This band deserved more than to be pigeonholed as goth and ignored by radio. The day I hear this disc on XM will be a milestone."
Ferocious Live Performance
SandmanVI | Glen Allen, VA United States | 02/14/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Purely on its merit, this is an amazing live album. The output is far more loud and ferocious than their studio performances generally were. As a big FotN fan though, I'm not sure that's always a good thing. Rather the live album is a perfect compliment to the studio albums, it is not meant to be a replacement unless you are a metal fan in which case you may like this better. What is impossible to replicate live is the dreamy, ethereal nature of the studio recordings. The best moment is the perfect version of "Dawnrazor" - this is how this song was meant to sound and is far superior to the album version. In most other cases, I think the versions are merely different and I appreciate them for that.A must-have for fans, and a great starting point for new fans who will likely find this more accessible (at least at first) than the studio albums. I know that's an odd thing to say, but for FotN it may be true since EI is more straightforward kickin' rock and far less complex than an album like Elizium."
