While A Fine Day to Exit continues to display and mature side of Anathema I love so much, is not an album that matches the masterpieces that were its predecessors.

Yes, there are a lot of great music here, but overall the album is not as impressive as Alternative 4 and Judgement. And I must say, I thought the voice of Danny Cavanagh suffered a regression. At moments he seems to be of tune (?), And although I like your tone seems to me that he still does not have the vocal ability of the two latest releases from the band. I think he was singing in Judgement best. I can not tell if this is a production problem, because this is very good - in fact every album offers a better quality output than the predecessor.

One of the strengths of the album is the entrance of Les Smith on keyboards. Although he played for just two albums besides this takes its ethereal sounds of pianos and contributes greatly to the sound that Anathema is developing from Alternative 4. We have the participation of Lee Douglas, whose crystallineand sweet voice only adds to the atmosphere transcendental aim to pass these songs.
