4.0 out of 5 stars Backwards or forward? 31 Dec 2003
Format:Audio CD
The doom merchants from Liverpool are back with another serving of angst. And what a good serving this is! The album seems to point towards two different directions: new sounds and old tradition. Some tracks remind me distinctively of the pre-Judgement/post death metal era, whilst others are clearly Radiohead's A Kid in style. The marks of greatness are still all there, though, and songs like Are you there, Natural Disaster and Flying are as beautiful as ever. The final, epic Violence (10 minutes long) could have been developed better, maybe with the addition of vocals, but nobody is perfect...
To cap it all: an unexpected album and a surprise. If you are an Anathema fan, you will enjoy it very much; if this is your first encounter with the Cavanagh brothers, you will be tantalized and hypnotized. Shame I missed their live gig in London...

5.0 out of 5 stars Too damn good 11 May 2004
Format:Audio CD
First off why was there nothing anywhere to say these guys were back. I thought they had finished, that's why I am so late writing this review, as I only found it was out a couple of days ago.
Anyway never mind that, the important thing is that one of the greatest bands to have ever graced this country is back, and with their best work yet in my opinion. Not even on the what I thought to be unsurpasseable Alternative 4 did they scale the musical heights of greatness that this album exceeds. Yet alas, it seems blatantly apparent that musical quality is not the requirement needed to achieve world success. I mean these guys form part of an elite in modern music, along with Katatonia, Pain of salvation, Opeth, Paradise Lost and Porcupine Tree yet they are all overlooked by the press( and I ain't excluding one single magazine here)in favour of souless, made for the masses rubbish like the Darkness and particularly annoyingingly, all this emo-core nonsense. More like an excuse to turn hardcore, another form of music I take an interest in, into pop music. Yet this is what they are all talking about. Well guess what I'm gonna stick with the music that my heart tells me to listen to, an example of that being the life-affirmingly good A Natural Disaster.
First off let me say that there is something truly special about this album, a similar feeling one gets when listening to dark side of the moon(Pink Floyd),Last fair deal gone down(Katatonia, who are criminally underlooked, surprise surprise), Grace(Jeff Buckley), Morningrise(Opeth),Remedy lane(Pain of salvation) or Dranconian times(Paradise Lost). In other words this is music that leaves you questioning how could such beauty and emotion be created through music. To me this is their deepest and most emotionally tragic of all their albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holy Mackrel, Anathema out do themselves! 28 Dec 2003
Format:Audio CD
From start to finish, your thinking, why the hell aren't this band massive! They are our times Pink Floyd! They are our centurys thinking mans band. Forget Elbow, Coldplay, Travis and all that commercial aldult alternative commercial tripe that we're fed every day by the mainstream culutre that tell us what we should like. BE BRAVE! Step out from the cold and into the light! Make this band what they should be, MASSIVE! A british band worthy of putting into the same catagory as our greatest bands.
Classic song writting, thought provoking lyrics, emotional singing. If your put off by their metal influenced past, don't be. They have travelled some distance down the song writting road since they wrote their debut album for their Metal label Peaceville, when they were 16!!!
Years of touring, many many albums under their belt, and personal tragedy make this album, a beautiful reflecive, coffee and cigar moment.
As you can tell I like it! =)
It's about time NME, MTV2, Kerrang, Rock Sound, Mojo, Q and the like all took notice of this band. It would be a tragedy if ever they broke up, and became a cult band all too late!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing Disastrous About This Album 23 Mar 2004
By Dr. D. B. Sillars VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Whereas earlier albums like “A Fine A Day to Exit”, “Judgement” and “Alternative 4” explored English melancholy from a hard edged, guitar driven perspective, this album sees Anathema using a more lush, electronic approach. There are nods to Porcupine Tree, Pink Floyd circa Animals, Jeff Buckley on “Flying” and even Portishead on the title track, but the album has plenty of its own unique style and mood. There is a beautiful sadness and discomfiting edginess to the songs which sucks you into the moody, atmospheric arrangements. This is a very modern rock album and one which deserves to be heard and gain Anathema a much wider audience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breath Taking 28 Feb 2004
Format:Audio CD
Are you a Pink Floyd Fan? Sick and tired of waiting for there next album? Ive got an idea for you. Check out Anathema. They are a metal band, yes METAL band. They write amazing songs and music. Its so obvious they adore Pink Floyd. I gotta say this, why do you want this band in NME and MTV2. This band is way beyond any that are in the mag, and on that channel. Can you see them on Gonzo i dont think so. I believe some bands should be left for people who love music enough to search for it. Anathema are for those kind of people. I cant find words to describe this band they are just absolutely amazing. If you ever get the chance see them live. If any body in the band is reading this please play a show its been to long!!!
