5 stars "... the songs contain multible riffs and sections, tempo- and time signature changes in spades but it┬┤s like there┬┤s no master plan. The riffs succeed each other in an endless stream and the songs completely lack memorability and hooks. After the album finishes all I can remember is that the band are extremely well playing." - UMUR's review

This was my first thought after listen to the whole album at the first time. But this was released on 2006, I was too much into death metal and detailed songwriting. I kept playing this album many times. And after all these years, I have found the true Anata's gem. And hell, this was the hardest band for me. This is the real hard listening music. You need to play the album time after time to fully understand, something that I'm not able anymore into this kind of death metal (I think I'm getting old). But once understanding The Conductor's Departure, the album wouldn't fail again. The band has ENOUGH creativity and virtuocity, and this surplus makes the album detailed ENOUGH. Listen to it carefully, and you will understand the beauty of this harsh music.

My 3 favorite tracks: Complete Demise (the oldschool non-melodic swedish tune mixed with technical and melodic riffs, something already did- see Entropy Within, from the previous album), Children's Laughter (I love the feeling at this short instrumental, is not a heavy song), and my favorite song from Anata, and one of the best technical death metal tracks ever: RENUNCIATION.
