4 stars Beautiful. The first Gathering-album with the great female singer Anneke van Giersbergen. It was 1995.. who would know that other bands like 'Within Temptation' and 'Nightwish' would profit from so much inspiration because of this classic album? The songs are very melodic, dramatic, haunting and loud. It's very riff-based music. No real solo's, no complicated fireworks, but very atmospheric, dark passages. After a little while, you will really love the songs and Anneke's beautiful, trained voice. Eléanor, Fear The Sea and In Motion #2 are the best tracks on the album. This band only made 1 follow-up in this style. In 1998, they started to make more experimental, modern music. This remains their most popular recording, although I still believe this band does not get it's support they deserve.
