5 stars We're Here Because We're Here, that's 'A Simple Mistake'.

This is not a product that can be described as Experimental, Doom or Death Metal, as some early works of Anathema, whose meaning is 'excommunication, removal'. No creepy shouts or dark. In addition, there are only occasional heavy guitars on several parts and well chosen ('Thin Air' and 'Summer Night Horizon'), fulfilling an essential role in transmitting the required passion, with great meaning and melody. Mixed by Steven Wilson and itīs perceived. Taking into account my personal taste, I prefer this stage without any doubt. I define as Art Rock with some Alternative Rock and Progressive necessary, not in the traditional sense of the genre.

Particularly there is no track that would qualify as inferior. 'Angels Walk Among Us' is a unique pearl in the discography of the group, a good synthesis of the best of the band for me. The song achieved a remarkable atmosphere. Wrenching vocals, emotion, melody and power in perfect balance, and passionate. An answer to the title of the work. 'A Simple Mistake' is great too.

'Dreaming Light' and 'Everything' are amazing, delicate and sweeping. 'Universal' and 'Hindsight' are the perfect closure. The remaining nine tracks contain the same parameters, and convey a deep melancholy. Solid composition, skillful parts of Piano, lots of Keyboards, forceful Drums, dynamic and harmonic Guitars. Transcendent!
