5 stars Great album, if you're into post-rock/experimental/depressive style of music.

To be honest, this was the first album I ever listened from Anathema, but I was positively surprised. I may be indeed in the right mood for this kind of music, but the sound got me from the very first time I listened to the album.

The songs are quite slow, according to their style, and may bore some of the most excited listeners. The sound reminds me of nowadays english rock bands, specially Porcupine Tree (perhaps due to the production, done by Steven Wilson) with some touch of space and post rock. If you like this kind of music, this album is certainly for you, beauty on its raw state.

My favorite songs are Angels Walk Among Us, with its great melody and vocals, followed by Presence. To me, they make just one amazing song. The last one is worth the listening also, Hindsight. Lee Douglas' vocals are also a high feature of the album.
