5 stars Wow, yeah, what do we need to say about The Gathering? Again they released a masterpiece. Yes, The Gathering are returning with a bang this time. After the triprock-album 'Souvenirs' from 2003, the band chose for a darker sound. Although this record is not such a big surprise as 'Souvenirs' was, it's mainly as good as it. Anneke's vocals are excellent again, and some songs are reminding of the 'If_Then_Else' sound a little. As always, the songs are not catchy and too accessible. In many ways, 'Home' is a challenge to listen to. 'Alone', 'Waking Hour' 'A Noise Severe' and the title track are the epics of the album, as 'Fatigue' and 'The Quiet One' are more "fillers" or better intermissions between the tracks. A a whole, 'Home' can be considered as a one-hour trip through a psychedelic, dark world with many sounds, beats and great vocals, with at the end, a soft 7-minute rest-piece called 'Forgotten (reprise)' As every Gathering-album, this is a recommedation of the higher sort. What an amazing band!
