Prog Reviewer
4 stars With "A Natural Disaster", ANATHEMA forgot its metal roots and made an album very pleasant to progressive ears. Not prog in the classic way, because the stuff shows a big approach to alternative rock (in the vein of RADIOHEAD or even COLDPLAY), very atmospherical and giving to the listener a distant and melancholic sensation. And PINK FLOYD spirit isn't far away.

Guitar and voices have the prominent role along the album except at the last, long and space instrumental track, "Violence", one of the highlights. Another high point is "Closer", a magnificent song, but beauty is the common place at all moments. Even "Pulled Under at 2000 Metres at Second" (where ANATHEMA makes a "homage" to its former powerful and heavy style) is very nice.

PINK FLOYD and alternative rock fans will enjoy this album very much. And all progressive listeners have with it an excellent option.
