4 stars 230503 is a new addition to my catalog, from relatively unknown, but certainly up-and coming Aussie band Anubis. This disc, their first, is a triumph in making something actually very good from the naiivity of relative youth,

This album isn't quite the masterpiece it's been hailed by some - it has three or four absolutely astounding pieces of music on it. But that does not a masterpiece make. it is, however a very ambitious, very good, if ultimately a little over-cooked record.

The keyboards sound very strong, as do much of the guitars and the bass playing, particularly on the latter part of the album (where the epics live) is outstanding. That Rickenbacker tone!

Play the tracks 'Waterfall', 'The Bond of Mutual Distrust' 'The Collapse' and 'Disinfected and Abused', and you hear what this group is capable of. Then get the second album because it's a corker.
