"Paradise Lost have been unique over the course of their career in that they have repeatedly released EPs that are worth buying. This is not their best one, but a very good one nonetheless. The song "As I Die" marked a turning point in their sound, I think. It is at once doomy and crunchingly up-tempo, imaginatively written yet catchy. This was a single released in between the albums "Shades of God" and "Icon", and the popularity of the song among the die-hard fans of the band speaks for itself. "Rape of Virtue" is an excellent b-side, filled with imaginative and rich guitar touches. The EP is worth the money just for these two songs, although "Death Walks Behind You" is amusing. the live version of "Eternal" brings out its visceral character more than the studio version from the "Gothic" album, and is a good listen. "As I Die" may not be as solid a release as the "Seals the Sense" EP or "The Last Time" single, but holds strong all the same."
