5 stars I have the last four Anathema albums, and find them all to be excellent. I love how this band has evolved from a rather average doom metal act, to classy neo-prog band with an undercurrent of sinister gloom. Yet they seldom get heavy or thrashy, by and large this is soft music. But soft music that only could have come about by first being heavy.

A Fine Day, I find to be their very best. 4.5*. Judgement I think is their second best, but Fine Day takes the musical concepts they really started refining on Judgement to a new innovative level. The songs are also very strong, and as a whole, the album holds together musically and conceptually.

I'm hoping my review will tick the average over 4*, becuase its currently at 3.8* and thats just a little too low in my opinion. This is truly satisfying music.
