2 stars Interesting return for Anekdoten, with 2007's "A Time Of Day", definitely their best album since "Nucleus".

Wonderful, but also very different: surely the band is coherent with their sound, but something in these songs say that the band has become more modernized ( all their previous album, in my opinion, where excessively influenced by 70's prog rock, which made them not as interesting for the general audiences). There still are some weak and not very convincing moments, that lowered the album's level, and that is why I'm giving it a four. However, great moments are as well present: the first couple of songs are exquisite, from the melancholy of "The Great Unknown", to the dazzling "30 Pieces", which can boast a one of the best Anekdoten melodies ever, or the utterly original sound of "King Oblivion". The "Sky about to Rain", which really makes you believe that rain will soon come down, is another gem of the album. These mentioned are the best songs, in my opinion. "Prince Of The Ocean" also has a nice melody, very calm but still mysterious.

I'm hoping for a new Anekdoten album, since I see that, after more than fifteen years, they are still able to surprise.
