Yea, I liked their dark ones better too.
They had a different lyricist back in the doom days, but if you're comparing their lyrics on the past two albums with the lyrics on the four before that, it's still a case of:
Anathema's lyrics a few albums back:
Anathema's lryics now:
Duncan Patterson lyrics <3
this album is pretty fucking great, not as good as WAHBWAH after a few listens but it's definitely among their best.
the end of The Storm Before the Calm is amazing
mother fucking Lightning Song
Only 1-2 listens but the only song that stuck was Storm Before The Calm, and I even enjoy the beginning. The rest o the album is pretty forgettable on first go. Will give few weeks/months to sink in until forming final Judgement.
Lol get it because Judgement
i am 2.5 tracks in and am getting fucking floored. holy shit.
Beginning and the End is my favourite atm, gonna be one of my top tracks of the year.
And yeah, end of Storm Before the Calm is amazing.
i can't find this anywhere lol
man, Untouchable Part 2 is on a Celine Dion level of cheesy, but it fuckin made me teary-eyed. how do they do it
the first 4 songs are like an incredible suite. i get slightly bored in the middle, but i love 'internal landscapes'.
just got this album
it's blowing me away on the first listen
this album is just so damn good, seriously. i fucking love this band.
It's really not that good guys, come on, snap out of it
Untouchable 1 and 2 are awesome. I like the rest but it isn't hitting me as much. I think some time will change that.
it's one of the most beautiful albums i've heard in some time
I listened to it on a long journey home a couple of days ago and after the first 3 or 4 tracks I didn't really feel anything.
oh, yeah, that is the great thing about Anathema. They went from being awesome, to awesome in a different way, to being completely terrible and written off by a lot of people, to (with the last two albums) finally being awesome again.
This album gets better and better with each listen.
This. I listened to it all the way through in the car this morning and it hit me hard. I love how a lot of the songs have this build up into a crescendo thing going on. The male/female vocals work so well together too.
Lightning Song is definitely the best song I've heard this year
that is an early favorite as well
The Storm Before the Calm
really cool music going on in there, sets a nice tone
Ok, I am absolutely stunned by this album. I think I'm in love with it.
Yeah, it hit me yesterday. So far, I think this is my AOTY
Mars Volta, If These Trees Could Talk and Ancestors are the only ones i like more this album. Definitely a great contender
Dude Ancestors is not nearly that good. I like it, but no way man...
same with ITTCT
This album just hit me so hard... out of nowhere. I'm practically crying. Fuck.
Yeah, it's fucking crazy
I can't get over how TSBTC gets in the beginning. It's so perfect!
calm down nolan
The fucking climax in 'The Lost Child' is simply crushing, in the saddest yet most uplifting way. Fuck.
This September, Anathema will have a show in my town. Well, not officially confirmed yet but IT HAS TO BE TRUE!
This is going to be amazing.
WOW that's awesome!
Arrived a couple of days ago. Pretty great. More of a grower than WHBWH I think, which on my second listen I was already in love with. This one basically feels like a continuation of that album, but then the second half starts bringing in some different vibes and that's when I really get into it.
EDIT: Since I've been berated for this before, my "Pretty great" is a positive review.
Holy fuck at The Lost Child.
The 5.1 mix is pretty good. I had some fears for this since it wasn't mixed by SW like WHBWH but it was done very well regardless of that. Too bad it isn't a full fledged DVD-A anymore and it's only Dolby Digital
"Internal Landscapes" absolutely destroyed me today, while I was driving. Jesus, that song is good.
I love the sample. Although I liked the track with the sample on WHBWH, the quality of the recording is really shitty and it gets a bit annoying, but this guy's voice is so manly and smooth and pleasing to listen to.
Also, does anyone else get reminded of Heavy Rain by the strings at the beginning of The Gathering of the Clouds? I don't think it's just the storm sample that makes me think of it.
Seen them in concert last night, they played the new album almost in its entirety.
Untouchable pt1 and pt2 as show opener is fuckin amazing and The Lost Child live gave me the biggest shiver & boner combo ever. Fun fact about that song from Vince: apparently Dan had a nightmare one night, where a foggy image of a child was singing this lullaby melody thingie to him, to which he woke up, ran over to Vince and they wrote down the ideas immediately, went back to sleep and came up with The Lost Child the next morning. Pretty awesome, I want nightmares like that.
I wonder do they sleep in the same room?
Awesome album! The Gathering of Clouds, The Storm Before the Calm, and The Beginning and the End are early standouts. The climax of The Lost Child just kicked my ass.
Learned The Beginning and The End on the piano. Fucking gorgeous bits, and the buildup is incredible.
Good story. I still need to sit down and give this album a concentrated listen.
Internal Landscapes could so be a Devy song.
Finally picked this up yesterday. Truly crushing album... Way too many good albums this year. Epicloud hasn't even been released yet. If there is ever a year for the world to end, this is it.
Just one listen so far, pretty impressed. I swear I heard a touch of post-rock in one of the tracks.
