This poll was basically a trap to bring back Anthony3 :)

There isn't a single Paradise Lost album I don't rinse every few weeks at least, and that is talking about the butt end of their wilderness years such as the Believe In Nothing/Symbol of Life era. Many of their albums I listen to fairly often (In Requiem, Icon, One Second, etc.) and some come in and out of heavy rotation frequently (Draconian Times, Host, Shades of God, etc.). One way or another I know I'm going to get an interesting record out of them that doesn't always play to my expectations but never fails to deliver.

On the other hand, MDB have a lot of music that I may never listen to again or very rarely at least, and only a couple of albums (The Angel & The Dark River, Turn Loose the Swans) that are spun with any frequency despite enjoying most of their later material upon release. All around solid band these days with some excellent material in their past, but many dull records and not really as diverse or challenging a catalog.

I just listened to this again yesterday, and I now feel confident in saying it's among THE VERY BEST from this band (I'd put it right behind "Angel", "Swans" and "Dreadful"):

Every song is good, absolutely no filler - and the last song "Within A Sleeping Forest" is an absolute doom masterpiece. I love the vocal performance on that song, My Dying Bride is still a great band. :beer:

Yep, Feel the Misery is incredible and a top 5 MDB album for me. The album before it is amazing too.

Definitely their best album in many years, and the one before it was solid too.
