An inspired outing from Merseyside's finest(well, not including the Beatles that is).
Eternity is the first album in which Anathema begin to sound like a prog rock outfit. 'Dreaming: The Romance' on 'Serenades' had hinted at this, but was perhaps overlooked as an aberration, rather than a portent of things to come. THIS album however, illustrates the band's creative diversity as previously unseen. The album sounds all at once truly original and yet inherently similar to nearly any rock band you care to mention - Pink Floyd, Metallica, Megadeth, Tangerine Dream etc. (the list is unending) - yet somehow this improbable mixture sounds original, and it's a paradox to be sure, because of its unexpected nature.
The opener 'Sentient', and 'Eternity pt II' are blissful, melodic guitar solos that speak of an influence visited upon the band by the fiercely talented David Gilmour. This is surely no coincidence, as track 6, 'Hope', is a cover version of a Roy Harper tune, co-written by the 'Floyd guitarist. 'Hope' also incorporates the spoken word offering 'Bad Speech' by Harper, and indeed it is Harper himself whose voice we hear. The song itself is competent, though my only grievance about it is that Vincent Cavanagh's ability to sing is acutely exposed as inadequate, and woefully so - a recurrent shortfall on many tracks from this platter - and one is left wondering just what regime of vocal exercise the frontman underwent to get in shape for 'Alternative4' (qv.), which was recorded a couple of years later.

Anathema are one of the metal bands that have progressed from a fairly extreme form of music (in their case, Doom) to something altogether more sophisticated and accessible - this has been both the band's blessing and curse because while they continue to evolve, refusing to stagnate, they find themselves in the difficult position of not being able to please many of their earlier-era hardcore fans.

I'm open-minded enough to accept progression - if you want dark-as-hell (and admittedly brilliant) doom metal then Serenades will always be there - and Eternity serves as a bridge between the really heavy stuff and the more progressive era that followed. Vincent took over the vocals on the preceding album (Silent Enigma), continuing from where Darren left off with more of a death growl on that disc. Here he started to personalise the sound and it's very effective, one of Eternity's strong points and something that would help define and distinguish the band beyond that. His voice would get softer and develop more range as the albums went on but I really like what he did on this album.

The music is complex, pretty heavy (though not so much as Enigma, Serenades, etc.), melancholic, and very efficient. The guitar sound and execution is great. It was around this period that Anathema started to be seen as sort of a metal version of Pink Floyd and it is an acknowledgeable comparison with Eternity. The album feels very much a whole, with tracks seemingly gliding into and out of one another. It's a complete and beautiful experience. The melodies are thoughtful and there is rarely a moment that one could describe as disposable.

This is a fantastic album, each track is carefully crafted and full of emotion. The production is not perfect but the mood and musical quality is second to none. Absolutely recommended.

I absolutely love this album, i cant stop listening to it. I assume that this is the album where they begin breaking away from traditional doom, to more Pink Floydian style sounds. Why should you buy this album. Because everything about this album is of the highest quality. This is an album that is made by themselfs for themselfs, this and there subsequent albums are not made to get them on radio as some might believe. Im always hearing comparisons to radiohead, i dont believe this band to be as accessible as radiohead. This band will never be a MAINSTREAM band. Ask yourself do you want them be. Dont you feel a great sense of achievement when you buy an album buy someone that seeming no one has heard of. Doesnt it feel great when that album is the most amazing thing you have heard. My favourite song on this album is Hope, its a cover. Ive never heard the original but i need to now. Do yourself a favour and buy this album.
