Faces and Traces
5 stars I have a rather rocky history with Anathema, and go through phases of liking or not liking all of the albums of their's I have heard previously (Judgement, alternative 4, A Natural Disaster), so I assumed that I would encounter the same problem with this album. To the contrary, this album instantly clicked with me, and I have loved it through every listen.

There's something about the vibe of this album that really strikes a chord with me, and listening it through puts me in a state of real calm and happiness I seldom find with anything else. This fits in with Danny's soothing, highly emotional voice, which guides the listener through the album, linking together calm ambient passages with fast paced alternative rock sections. The album is at it's best on tracks such as "A Simple Mistake", and my personal favourite "Hindsight", where the sounds slowly build up, Post-Rock style, to an intense climax and then slowly fade back into serenity.

In closing, the high emotion, Amazing production ala Steven Wilson, and Delicate ambiance of this album make it one I have kept coming back to again and again since its release, and while I cannot say that this will last as time passes, at the moment, in my eyes, this IS a masterpiece.

Faces and Traces | 5/5 |
