5 stars This band is finally in their prime. The entire album exhibits a sensitivity and control of writing, arranging and performing that few manage to achieve. Perhaps one of the finest improvements is in the vocals. Gone are all the weaknesses in pitch and delivery that occasionally plagued poor Nicklas. I was also pleased to hear that they've expanded their sonic palette by integrating Hammond organ and analog synth. Very welcome additions that are used tastefully and effectively.

Anekdoten's appeal for me has always largely been the emotionality of their music and this album delivers in spades. I guess I'm just a sucker for beautiful melody, Mellotron and grinding, overdriven bass. I can't recommend "A Time Of Day" highly enough. I've been listening to it multiple times daily for the past couple of weeks and my appreciation only continues to grow. I don't make light of a 5- star rating, but this one truly deserves it.

Seagles | 5/5 |
