AllMusic Review by

My Dying Bride’s sound is so taut and so skillful that it is hard to believe that AN ODE TO WOE is not a studio album. If anything, the band’s live sound is more bitter and ferocious, and AN ODE TO WOE dumps the listener right there in the mist-filled front row, head-banging along with the band's romantic doom metal. This set also offers an austere snapshot of the band’s tumultuous career, picking both the brightest and the most morose moments out of a catalogue that spans nearly 20 years.
