4 stars With this record, Anathema's sound has reached a new dimension. The dark atmosphere is mainly gone, replaced by a more positive feeling: peace.

"Pressure" is a great piano/guitar quiet song - nice opening. "Release" is a great rock song. "Looking Outside Inside" is a classic mix of slow/fast riffing (not the best track on the album though). "Leave No Trace" and "Underworld" are again favorites. "Barriers" is a beautiful ballad featuring Lee Douglas on vocals. "Panic" shows again a bit of agression before the outstanding finishing songs "A Fine Day To Exit" and especially "Temporary Peace", where all the emotional feelings attain their peak.

Rating: 83/100
