Rating: 8 They said on twitter they were writing a new album.That was quick. I hope they are feeling productive and inspired

  What? Already? Don't know what to expect, the last album was pretty bi-polar to be honest. Hopefully, this one will deliver in spades.
Troy Killjoy - 27.03.2011 at 21:15  
  Too soon. I can already imagine what this will sound like.

Rating: 7 Amazing! While certainly a new style the first half of We're Here was absolutley brilliant. I didnt care much for the slow and boring last part though.

I didn't like the last album.
Hope this be good.

  My magic ball says this will sound too radio-friendly.

  The lest album had i great feel to it enjoy a lot ( A Simple Mistake, Angels Walk Among Us) are amezing song.Know more

John Shock - 05.06.2011 at 15:36  
  Yeah, really? Already, hmm so soon, i doubt it will be a nice album like We're Here...! Doubt it....
João Pirucas - 15.07.2011 at 22:17  
  This is not a new album per se. This is a reinterpretations album like Hindsight.
BloodTears - 16.07.2011 at 01:15  
Rating: 8 Love the songs of the album. I'll definitely grab it.

  So, were you disappointed by the overambitious and incoherent project of "Evinta"? Well, "Falling Deeper" succeeds where "Evinta" turned out to be a total failure: no endless orchestral suites that last for over ten minutes, but brief, focused songs that just revisit the old doom sound with some beautiful strings, piano, acoustic guitar and mellow vocals, always keeping the gloominess unaltered. And while the songs from "Evinta" are a pointless collage of classic MDB melodies stretched in tedious compositions, Anathema just capture the essence of each song, sometimes even shortening the original ones ("Sleep In Sanity", "Kingdom", "They Die", "We The Gods") and thus aiming to intensity and emotions rather than to form and length. That's it; Anathema wins. Way shorter (38 minutes) but way stronger, in my opinion.

Rating: 10 Its incredible what they did with these songs!
BloodTears - 23.09.2011 at 22:01  
Rating: 8 Good exercise from Anathema, not much more than that really. Maybe it'll make the new fans check out the older albums.
I still prefer the original songs though
Giza - 03.12.2011 at 18:30  
Rating: 10 Really peaceful and calm album with a little touch of melancholy... Simply perfect, certainly one of the best releases of 2011.

Rating: 9 This is a classic! I dont know what they are taking these days but its having heavenly affect on them. The girl was good but unlike anathema. They are becoming more silent and peaceful day by day. Gotta pump up a bit next time.

They said on twitter they were writing a new album.That was quick. I hope they are feeling productive and inspired


What the.... I knew they were working with a new album but I totally missed the date. Have to listen to it now. I remember almost nothing from the previous one but just remember that I did not digg it that much... Too soft, friendly and just not emotional enough. Hopefully this will be better.

A lot of people didn't like the last album, unlike me I think it'll be in the same vein, but Anathema can always surprise us. Apparently it'll come out on April next year.

I'm confused here, why does it say 12 September 2011?

Yeah... also, I didn't look at the tracklist so I found out today that it was a re-interpretation of some tracks from the debut and first couple of EP's. Will check it out.

Yes, I was talking about the new album. Falling Deeper was cool, but just that. I really like the original songs just the way they are
FrozenJoy - 05.01.2012 at 17:29  
Rating: 8 Being honest, I wouldn't mind another album like this, I think like it too much It's so calming, soothing and relaxing, but at the same time has that feeling of sadness typical of the band (at least of the earlier material)... They Die, Everwake, J'ai Fait une Promesse and Sunset of Age are just brilliant... And Anneke is just great!
Ikuinen - 11.03.2012 at 22:01  
  Such an amazing album....best release of 2011
NocturnalStalker - 08.05.2012 at 15:18  
Rating: 8 I think the purpose of this album was to show that "the way the music is performed and produced has changed and grown immeasurably but the heart of the music, the melody and harmony, the structures of chords that pull at the heart strings remains the same as ever" as Danny stated in the foreword. I guess, in this sense "Falling Deeper" serves its purpose, but still, in the end of the day, I'd rather listen to the original versions of those songs. I agree with BloodTears on that.
Slyfang - 10.05.2012 at 01:23  
Rating: 3 Wasted album. The original songs are hard to recognise to the extent that they should have just given them different names and called it an ambient interlude album
Troy Killjoy - 24.05.2012 at 04:41  
  I understand this is supposed to be an ambient modern classical release and that their typical atmospheric brand of alt-rock isn't on display, but these songs could and should have been so much more engaging. Instead they seem to be stuck on "intro" mode and never go anywhere. This works for the first song but after 10 minutes of the same thing it just feels frustrating, like I wanted to break into my speakers and manipulate the sound because nothing was happening.

A failed ambition to say the least.
ThunderAxe1989 - 18.10.2012 at 05:27  
Rating: 9 Amazing release. Anathema are such an unbelievably talented band!
