4 stars Such a well done album. I don't argue the fact that some give this five stars. The album contains a "suite" of songs depicting weather as a metaphor for the events in life. Quite Yeslike to me and that's a good thing. Instead of conventional songwriting, Anathema chooses to let the feel of the material itself dictate the pace and structure of the song. Thus the songs tend to ebb, flow and swell. Very emotional. The fact that there is a female voice that is used more frequently really adds to the delicateness and the expressiveness to the music. Lots of acoustic guitars, piano and especially, orchestration really fleshes out the rich tapestry of the music. Perhaps, most importantly, is the production. This might be the best sounding album I have ever heard. Crisp highs, huge lows without sacrificing warmth. Usually something has to give but not here. With this producer, i am anxious to here what they come up with next.
