Review by kev rowland
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Crossover Team
3 stars The idea of a rock band presenting an acoustic or, as in this case, a semi-acoustic show is these days not that unusual. But Dutch rockers The Gathering were probably not one that many people ever imagined would fall into that camp. Not all of the songs on this album are fully acoustic, but even those that are electric (such as "The Mirror Waters") are treated in a totally different fashion to how the listener would usually expect. The result is an album that is deeply emotional and atmospheric, with the whole band being tied together by the delicate yet powerful thread which is Anneke van Giersbergen's voice.

It shows how much structure there is within their music and how even though they normally belt it out there is a far more evaluated side to their nature. From opener "Locked Away" to closer "Like Fountains" the listener is taken for a ride through fourteen songs that have a craggy beauty which is going to introduce them to a whole new audience. Fans of the band will just lap this up while newcomers will wonder how they have never come across this style of music before. It is often piano-based with acoustic strumming but it is Anneke that is the pin that holds it all together and she comes out of this with a lot of credit.

5 stars While Mandylion was the entry of The Gathering in a powerful instrumental and vocally, this album shows what can be done in an intimate, quiet. This is a wonderful album. The first impression is that we are with them in a bar or a small theater, and have respect without much paraphernalia, and th ... (read more)

4 stars The songs on this album are sustantially stripped down or re-worked, but still maintain nothing of their power. Although they have chosen mainly for their more mellow songs (Amity, Marooned, My Electricity), the ones that are not have indeed mainly lost their rough edges. This results in a bun ... (read more)

5 stars This may be my favorite CD by the Gathering. All the songs have been reworked to fit a down to basics band. The instrumentation is mostly accoustic but there's still room for electric guitar and synths. The emphasis is on Anneke's voice which has never sounded more wonderful in this live setting. ...

4 stars Excellent album. The climate of this concert is wonderful... Saturnine from 'Sleepy buildings' was the first song of Gathering that I've heard-I was schocked-there are so many feelings in this version of that song...and so many sadness too...voice of Anneke leads us through the album so delica ...
