Vinny's voice is immaculate agreed. It's so clear and he has a great range.

Digging: Leprous - Coal

The vocals in Dusk (Dark is Descending) are so fucking fantastic, as are those pretty much everywhere else but there especially

My favourite vocal part on the album is the second half of Ariel where he just lets loose. Sounds so
fucking great. Glad to see a new Anathema fan :-)

Another batch of fluffy, angelic, twinkly, piano-laden nothing.

The Lost Song - Part II and Anathema are my favorites from this one and I easily prefer the first half of the album. Anathema have found a formula for many years now and they've been building on it. I like the fact that this one is a bit more gloomy than their previous stuff though.

Digging: John Coltrane - Ballads

Sounding like typical recent Anathema fare so far, which is in the 3.5-4 range.

the title track is not going down well anymore, it sounds very tranny lol
not sure if they made a good move on 2nd half, doubt it will last as long as their older stuff.

i like the bass playing and its sound on this album though.

Agreed about the bass, the tone is an improvement over WS. I don't understand why Jamie isn't playing
the bass on the album

Only album I've ever heard in full from these guys is the debut and it's been years since I listened to it. Always meant to jam their more recent stuff.

Gonna spin this now since I'm catching up on stuff from this year. m/

If you've only heard their death/doom then yeah. If you're trying to get into new Anathema I wouldn't start with this though
