Those of you who know me personally know how much of a fan I am of CoF. I didn't expect much out of Damnation and a Day, since it was their first CD on a major label, but it totally delivered. Nymphetamine, their first CD on Roadrunner, is TERRIBLE! It seems as if someone at Roadrunner told them to not play fast songs anymore, because except for a couple tracks, this is full of long, slow mallcore love tunes. One thing I have always liked about Cradle of Filth is their penchant to have lots of blastbeats in their music. On this disc, there are virtually none, plus the bass drums sound like a cap gun firing. The only songs I like on here are "Gilded Cunt" and "Gabrielle." Simply put, if you have liked any of their previous albums, you might want to download Nymphetamine before blindly buying it, it's very different from all their other material.
