Product Description

<strong>

Double heavyweight vinyl edition of the 2008 album from Anathema - featuring semi-acoustic interpretations of classic Anathema tracks

</strong>

Released in 2008, Hindsight was the first release of new studio recordings from Anathema since 2003's acclaimed conceptual album, A Natural Disaster. Featuring selected favourites spanning the band's career, as well as brand new track, 'Unchained (Tales Of The Unexpected)', Hindsight featured sensitive semi-acoustic arrangements - utilising acoustic, electric and orchestral instruments - that further develop the deep, emotional landscapes that Anathema has become justly renowned for. Arranged by guitarist Danny Cavanagh, engineered by Les Smith, and performed and produced by Anathema, Hindsight also features cellist Dave Wesling, who previously toured with the band in 2004 (and is featured on the DVD, 'A Moment in Time').

This edition of the album is pressed on double heavyweight (180g) vinyl and packaged in a gatefold sleeve.

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

I have bought every Anathema album since back when they were classed as Doom Metal so Know all the original tracks that are remastered on this new Album.. By no means is this a best of or old tracks reboxed and sold to rip you off Album, every track on this disk sounds fresh and new and compleatly different from the originals. Its a beautifually constructed if depressing 45 mintues worth of anathema at there finest, truely outstanding.

I've been a life long Anathema fan so am probably biased, but I simply adore this album. As previous reviewers have said, it's mostly reworkings of old songs, but not just any reworkings, the version of "A natural disaster" featuring the vocals of Lee Douglas is simply sublime. I was unsure how they could improve "Angelica" or "Fragile Dreams" but the versions on here are simply amazing. Yes it is heartwrenching in parts it is also incredibly cathartic, "One last goodbye" is a gorgeous but truly painful song about the loss of a loved one.

Of course, many older fans wish Anathema would go back to their 'pentecost' and 'Sereandes' era style but I'm happy to keep going with them on this journey if they continue making music this beautiful and can't wait for the new album.

I found Anathema when I was searching for new music. I went through their early works (not my type) until I found Alternative 4 and begun to realize I found a great band that was not much known.
All the albuns that they published later were considered, by me, as very interesting, so when I found out they had this acoustic I had to hear it.
To keep it simple - I love this album. Is one of the most played albums in my discography. I found the versions they put up together fascinating and great to hear everytime - when I'm feeling happy and also on those days when I feel like staying to myself.

It may be an anathema to say so but I actually prefer these semi acoustic orchestral versions, they really allow you to hear just how good Anathema are as tune-smiths. I strongly suspect that these are the versions that will stand the test of time.
