86년도에 이런 엘범이 나올수 있다니...미쳤다
level 12   (90/100)
Nightfall보다 좋은데? 기타는 무슨 약빤 듯 연주한다.
level 8   (90/100)
이 시기에 이런 분위기의 앨범이 나왔다는 사실이 놀라울 따름이다.. 물론 연주와 편곡도 더할 나위 없이 훌륭하다.. 특히 "Solitude"는 지금 들어도 온몸에 전율이 흐른다..
level 9   (95/100)
Isn't this amazing? The quality of riffwork is sky high. Couple that with lengthy Doom Metal verses and what do you get? A timeless classic!
level 12   (90/100)
오글거리는 면이 적지 않아 있어서 아쉬운
level 1   (100/100)
Traditional doom! A very great idea
level 9   (90/100)
원래 둠은 잘안듣는데 이런 둠은 귀에 잘들어오네
level 7   (90/100)
헤비메탈 보컬계의 숨은 진주 Johan Langquist
level   (95/100)
캔들매스는 이앨범 하나면 설명이 끝난다고 생각한다.
level 7   (90/100)
확실히 좋은데 5번트랙만큼은 한편으론 너무 팝스럽게 오글거리기도 해서 별로다.
level 6   (70/100)
다시 들어보니깐 꽤나 유치하다.
level 18   (95/100)
výborný debut, hutné melodické a epické riffy, naliehavý melodický spev + doplnenie a akustické a klávesové pasáže
level   (92/100)
캔들매스는 메시아의 보컬로 유명하지만 솔직히 음악적 완성도는 이 1집이 최고다. 보컬도 딱히 오버하지 않으면서 더 어두운 분위기를 자아내고, 리프의 전체적 완성도도 그렇고...
level 14   (86/100)
이 시대에 이정도 레코딩에 이정도 연주와 악곡, 보컬 실력이면 대단하다. 둠메탈 장르에 있어서도 큰 기여를 한 작품
