5 stars Nothing to envy to Radiohead.

This is the true meaning of the word 'atmospheric', meaning that you can listen to the album in any time of the day, any moment of your life and you will feel wrapped by it. In addition, Anathema was always analogous to Radiohead by the ability to inmerse the listener in deep emotions, creating hallucinogenic perceptions of the obscure and the luminous elements of life.

A very well arranged, very well produced acoustic album counting on the presence of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra in the string arrangements and an intelligent re-elaboration of the classic songs, including a brand new song called 'Unchained (Tales of the unexpected)', a very dreamy piece that suits perfectly to the standards of the rest of the album.

Pros: The voice harmonies, the work the band put on the renewing of the old songs, the string arrangements. Cons: Short tracklist. Since it is a compilation, it could have been perfectly a double album but it would delay the release of the long-awaited follow-up to 'A Natural Disaster' scheduled for release near the end of the year.

Still perfect, balanced. Essential!
