A bit disappointed, but has lovely parts
on 9 October 2013
I'm a big fan of Anathema and very often listen to the albums Natural Disaster, Judgement and Fine Day to Exit. I was looking forward to a new album (after listening to these three for about 10 years), but very sadly planning on giving it to a friend who listens to more pop music. Every now and again the sound I adore so much comes out and I get excited, complimented by ample classical music influence. But: it's just too easy-listening, beams little creativity or alternative sound. What could have saved it was good lyrics. But the lyrics are cliche and watered down. Just sad and disappointing. Wrapping up as a gift for someone right away.
