4 stars It was clear that after the overwhelming artistical sucess that The Church achieved with "Priest=Aura", repeating the story would be indeed a difficult task. However, they managed to make a worthy and solid continuation to their previous work.

"Sometime Anywhere" was an exploration of the experimental, dark and progressive background they seemed to have found. The album is quite varied and, in certain ocassions, quite exotic. There are pieces of the mesmerizing a subtle atmosphere seen so many times with this band. The best example of this is "Loveblind", a simply delicious song. There are pieces of the previously mentioned experimental work, like in "Lost my touch" or (specially) in "Angelica", a song that mixes technoid phases with violins and folklorical sounds (what the heck?). There are also instrumentals, like "Eastern", which gives the exotic and folkloric touch to the album. And finally we have classic and typical Church masterpieces like "Authority" and "Dead Man's Dream" (my favourite song from the album)

It is also remarkable that Marty Wilson Piper has kind of protagonism here, appearing in quite of the vocals, often mixed with Kilbey's, giving a quite interestng result that unfortunately they have not tried again.

So, although this album is less straightforward and a bit 'more difficult' than the previous one, is another effort that should checked out.
