N/A
Anathema have long since abandoned their trademark style and their current eclecticism is as much of a trait as it is a fault. Willingness to experiment and grow as a band is, of course, always praise-worthy; however, Anathema have a distinct stench about them - the unmistakable, shiver-inducing stench of being a follower.

Seems to me that some of you forgot they turned to atmospheric Rock since 2001. The last 3 albums (including Hindsight) were really good in the general opinion, and this one is not exception. I like the early Anathema, but I really like what they have become in the last few years as well.

they had really good lyrics, they were not about I love you I love I love, Anathema has lost their little respect which was left in metal community. I really cant love a band who is against its Past. do you know what ''A Simple Mistake'' means to me? they mean their whole career was a simple mistake! take a look at the 100% opposite lyrics of the song. ''we are just a moment in time''. then go to hell and find new fans.



what a sorry immature dumbf*ck you are. until you grow up, don't think that the world to respect your idiotic lowbrow opinions


A very nice way to explain yourself

can't get a message through if you don't speak in their language. i may be immature too in many ways, but it doesn't get any more retarded than someone thinking that anathema has to do what their "fans" want and only sing about misery and sadness. at least i'm not a type of person who would have a problem with people finding happiness in their lives, like some 13 year old tough guy wannabe who thinks love is for girls and sissies

I know his opinion is a bit immature and I totally agree with you " would you have posted this posty before I wouldn't have said anything "
I would not give a shit about the lyrical content as long as it is well written which in this case it is

  Finally Anathema are back with a new album
Even if it's influenced by many bands, they kept their unique and magnificient songwriting.
My fav song is A simple mistake

Rating: 9 Definetly growing on me the more I listen to it...really sounding like Porcupine Tree which is fine by me!

Rating: 5 Worst anathema album for me.I don't know why but I think that is an album with no pasion. I have listen this album many times but still I have the same opinion. It's like I listen to Coldplay or U2. I love them but , ok , I just don't like this album. And I hate when they say 'this is our best album'.. Eternity ? Silent Enigma ? Alternative 4 ? Judgement ?

Weather systems is better for me. ( the lost child is one of the best song of their carrer in my opinion)

Where is real Anathema? this is a medium post rock easy rock heh! no word to say but Regret
We're Here Because We're NOT Here


who the hell are you to say what is REAL Anathema?


For me 'real' anathema is all the albums from serenades to a natural disaster. I don't care if they are heavy or not. But whbwh is all about 'atmosphere' and nothing more! After 7 years of waiting I expected something much better!

So you'd rather they become depressed and miserable again to satisfy your musical desires?

No. I don't! I'm just saying that this album is just to relax with the atmosphere that turns out! It's background music!
And the lyrics ... 'all that I know is I love you , yes I love you!' They know how to write epic lyrics but the lyrics of this album are bad for me. I don't understand your enervation. We just say our opinion about an album!

"I that I know is I love you" hahahaha, what an Anathema.


Agree!!! I remember when they used to write awesome lyrics..huge poetry!They have great love songs with great lyrics (angelica , are you there , inner silence etc. For me, 'inner SIlence' is a perfect love poem!) but 'thin air' ? What a joke..
'All that I know is I love you , yes I love you '
BloodTears - 19.10.2012 at 21:01  
Rating: 8 I don't think it's a joke at all. It is just something different. If you like "Inner Silence" go listen to Alternative 4. Change doesn't always need to be so painful
Dark†SymphonY - 22.04.2013 at 15:55  
Rating: 8 Beautiful, but pretty much 'chill-out' listening music and little bit boring as well.
