Know when the band takes a giant step in the evolution of your sound? It is.

Wow, that's good. Not as good as his two most recent works, but still a masterpiece. Continuing (or crowning) a change in her musicality that has been seen since Eternity, Anathema offers a mixture of gothic metal with progressive touches (Pink Floyds feelings), together with a prominent alternative sound. Doom metal? No more. And I am extremely grateful. Vincent's vocals continue to improve, although not yet at the level of Weather Systems.

There is a more extensive use of keyboards here, especially the piano (in baertura Shroud of False) and organ (giving an elegant beauty to Feel). There is also the presence of the violin, which highlights those who are the two best songs on the album: Fragile Dreams (I'm really in love with this song) and Lost Control. Other highlights are the short and energetic Empty the long Regret and the aforementioned Feel.

4.5 stars. A wonderful masterpiece.
