1 stars What a let down after the exciting debut album Always.

The Gathering goes melodic on Almost A Dance with clean male vocals. Vocals that sounds like a male moose in heat, though. Frankly, they are that terrible. The guitars are melodic and the guitar solos is diddly-dei without much originality. The sound is faintly goth rock'ish. The keyboards is grandious as in goth rock.

This album may have been both good and exciting back in 1993 (??). But in today's standards, it falls flat on it's face. It is a massive step backwards from a pretty much genre defining debut album. The songs are terrible throughout. I am glad to report that Anneke saved the band on the next album. Almost A Dance is a turkey though and as bland as a bag of peanuts with all salt removed.
