4 stars Sheer sonic violence juxtaposed to delicate melodies abound in this excellent Swedish group's second release. The Crimson comparisons to are well-founded, but hardly do justice to Anekdoten's unique strengths. Fueled by a savage, devouring bass and sweeping mellotrons, "Nucleus" stands out as a great example of heavy art-rock, which maintains its fat sound and complex song structure without sounding pretentious or allowing themselves to experiment with alternate instrumentation-- such as cello and flute-- which really highlight the band's versatility and their more intense sections.

A may go out on a limb here and say that "Nucleus" may actually be better than the album whose comparison it can't escape (KC's "Red"), and say that it is more varied, more dynamic, and ultimately a more intense listen.

A great introduction to the world heavy progressive music.
