Anyone who has been a fan of anathema in the past will pretty much love this album, it has new versions of old classic aswell as a new fresh song. I agree with what the chap above me says about the album being very, well, miserable i guess, but fans of anathema should really expect this in an anathema record. While people say its miserable, id also say its a beautifully constructed album, and that the songs in themselves are stunning renditions of classic tracks. Some work better than others, and id say i prefer the original records for about half of them, but considering that the album is 100% self produced, theyv done an amazing job. One thing i will say as a sound engineeer, there are a few sketchy points in the actually recording/production - vocals a bit too trebley, cello a bit loud at points e.t.c, but thats just me having a picky ear.
This band is one of my biggest musical influences and by the sounds of it, will continue to be for years to come
