Where do you propose I invest my hard earned voucher?

You really can't go wrong with either.

Pick which album artwork you like the best and buy that one.

Nooo, don't get Paradise Lost first! Russell sings too harsh there. As good as The Odyssey is (that's when he started with the harsh vox), rather get The Damnation Game or The Divine Wings Of Tragedy instead. They're just better. He sung cleaner and with more clarity back then. Now he just growls!

he definitely doesn't growl. his voice does have more of an edge, but its not growls. and its not like thats all he does. he still has that same great singing voice.

i think you should get ODYSSEY cause here Romeo blasts one killer riff after another (not saying he doesnt on other records but here hes better) and overall the album has very good production and as a whole it is perfect! zhe ending wins though!
