3 stars Another diversion from their roots while retaining their heavy sound, "Gravity" shows Anekdoten playing what is their most accessible yet. "Monolith" opens big and shows this changing sound early on, but when you find yourself singing along to the excellent "Richochet" you'll know that things have changed.

Unfortunately, the album can't maintain the intensity of the first two songs, and by the time the first half is over you might find yourself feeling a little bored; the songs are not as engaging or monstrous as those on their previous two albums, at least in terms of song writing or complexity. There is big riffing throughout, and some fine playing by all members, but "Gravity" slips just a bit due to its inconsistency.

Still a great album for fans of the band.
