"Resonance" is a collection of Anathema's more ambient moments, brilliantly showcasing the band's ability to create memorable and intense atmospheric rock music. The album contains 6 tracks which have never been available outside Germany and Japan, plus the unreleased live version of "Angelica" and covers of Pink Floyd classics, "One Of The Few" and "Goodbye Cruel World".

Issue should be taken with Peaceville's marketing of this disc as "The ultimate chill out album for the metallic masses". Certainly, the material showcased here illustrates the more quiescent aspects of Anathema's music, yet quite often it is from this direction that the band's most emotionally penetrating moments arrive. The sheer emotional weight of moments such as the deeply sorrowful "Inner Silence", Vincent Cavanagh's desperately anguished cries in the acoustic version of "Eternity Pt. III", or the paralyzing beauty of "Better Off Dead", in which the lyrics from the Bad Religion song are gorgeously sung by Michelle Richfield against an achingly beautiful piano/violin arrangement, contain an essence of "heaviness" that strikes the listener in an often deeper and more profound manner than much of the band's sonically weightier material. These quieter, more musically relaxed songs express a substantial degree of emotional and intellectual agony that is intensified by its delivery through a thematically contrasting tranquility of sound, this realization exposing the inappropriateness of labels such as "mellow" or "chill out album" in application to this music. This is not exactly easy-listening music, at least not in the common sense of that description, and those listeners who are aware enough to apprehend the communicative spirit within the aesthetic will realize the distinction.
The ONLY reason one wants to buy this album is the presence of two acoustic versions of Far away and Eternity part III. These two quality tracks stand out from the rest of this short album. (By the way, the first part of the retrospective includes only the mellow side of the band.)
The live Angelica version is REALLY bad, not because the band ... when they play live, but because they must be coming from a cheap bootleg. How stupid it is for an artist to include such a badly recorded song on their retrospective album??
The hope video is fine if you haven’t seen it before, but no more. For me, this album has two tracks, if you are fan enough to pay for it go ahead, but prepare yourself to hear too many one minute tracks!
However I disagree with the masses, this album kicks [butt] and is my favorite doom metal cd that i own. The beauty of it is that is so quiet and so incredibly mellow that its a treat to listen to. The album starts off with a short instrumental song and then goes on to, two great songs with female vocals, j'fait une promesse being one of the best on the album.
The two most popular songs on the album or of course the acoustic versions of far away and eternity (part 3), also great songs.
This is my sleeping album and to tell you the truth I have never slept better then when I fall asleep with this album. This really is the ultimate chill out album.
The songs are also very catchy after a few listens. One problem with it is that its a bit short, the songs are often just over 1 minute long making go by a bit fast.
This isn't your typical best of album and I recommend it to any doom metal fan. I still recommend the full length albums over it but this one still should not be missed.
With peaceville releasing this at the same time as anathema released their "proper" new album, "a fine day to exit", fans will be confused... maybe accidentely buying this piece of garbage... buy anything they released from "eternity" on....
mp3 swapping programs such as napster were created for albums like this.... nobody should have to pay for this....
