3 stars Anekdoten's album refines the approach of Vemod, taking the King Crimson-inspired style of that album and amping up the heavy, at points almost grungy guitar riffs. It's an intoxicating mix which at its best threatens to beat the 1990s King Crimson at their own game, but once again it doesn't quite hold up over the course of the album; the tracks begin to blend together and my attention invariably begins to drift at about the halfway point. Though they do manage to do slightly better at judging when to throw in a quieter section to keep things varied, the different quiet and loud sections all begin to sound like each other after a while. OK if you're addicted to Red-era King Crimson, but I'd rather just listen to Red again.
