4 stars The long awaited ANEKDOTEN new studio album **** STARS

Finally we have new studio material from these swedish super quartet, and among the years i really hope that the band can still together for quite long.Every year i checked ANEKDOTENīs site expecting the worst, but it seems that they wonīt share ANGLAGARDīs faith for the prog sake. The album started with "the great unknown" and inmediatly remind us the previous GRAVITY album. The next track "30 pieces" has a beatiful flute played by Gunnar Bergsten that goes very well with the band style.In the instrumental track "every step I take" is curious how close to the sound of the post-rock band GODSPEED YOU BLACK EMPEROR can be.Anyway, itīs the same ANEKDOTEN sound but itīs really a less depresed album than the others and a little bit slow for my taste.Nevertheless, we have powerfull tracks like "In for a ride" as great as "from within", "hole" or some many other. I donīt know if itīs unfair to compare "A Time of Day" with the previos records, but we always expect more from such a great bands like ANEKDOTEN, I give the album 4 stars because i donīt think itīs another VEMOD or NUCLEUS, in fact, itīs a little bit different maybe because there is a 10 years gap from those albums, but now the difference is that the ARTWORK itīs just PERFECT!!!

No matter what, itīs still highly recommended album and a must for any ANEKDOTEN fan.
