4 stars A new album from ANEKDOTEN has always been a great pleasure ever since I bought their first album "Vemod" in 1993. ─NGLAGARD's "Hybris" and ANEKDOTEN's "Vemod" were my most played albums for a long time that year. I had heard rumours that "Gravity" was ANEKDOTEN's best album so far, so I thought, "let's check it out." I love their tasteful use of Mellotron, Farfisa, Rhodes, Piano and Organ, but I miss the cello at times. The music is still the same but softer and not as wild as before, and you can still hear their origin as a KING CRIMSON tribute band, although they have developed their own style and you can hear that they're still trying to find new paths for their music to follow. Here and there you can also recognise some similarities to their mates PAATOS and the since long sadly disbanded LANDBERK. Together with A.C.T's "Last Epic" and RITUAL's "Think Like A Mountain", ANEKDOTEN's "Gravity" is the best album from Sweden 2003, regardless the genre, but in my book "Vemod" (1993) and "Nucleus" (1995) is still their best albums so far.
