While departing from the previous death growls signing the music is changing as well during the writing and recording sessions for the third Paradise Lost studio album - Shades of God. It is noticeable how the band is progressing in terms of songwritig abilities, writing lyrics, which are the band's landmark, the stable vocals made by Nick Holmes, as well as the solos of the Greg Mackintosh. While this album delivers a lot of good doom and gothic melodies, it still contains some "rookie syndrome" elements in the compositions. There are some unfinished ideas at the end fo the composition and they finished let say even unexpectedly. Overall: Strong progress for the band and very strong classic album after all.

I prefer this one as well, but think the newer staffs are even better.

I found Gothic harder to get into, but Gothic to Draconian Times is an incredible run of albums.

I prefer this one over Gothic, though I often read that Gothic is higher rated and the more important album to hear from this band.
