3.0 goodLunaticSoul | January 15th 16

Everwake keeps the album up from being a slight disappointment. The 'soul' of the original tracks is slightly lost and the result is not on the levels of 'Hindsight'.

Anathema re-evaluates their music from older material such as their doom-metal era to newer material and re-packages it in alternative versions, mostly instrumental. Ranging from excellent to breathtaking, this cd has been a violent grower for me and succeeds in what Anathema was aiming for.

The sound progression that Anathema has reached throughout their entire career is astonishing. From their doom-era; Anathema were always a band that sought an elegant shade of darkness, a darker shade of white - Grey. Alternative 4 leaned heavily towards delicate experimentation; Judgement faced existentialist questions and twisted the sounds from ALT.4 into melodious heart-breakers that juxtaposed elements from their past and present. [Then] Anathema gave birth to several experimental rock albums that took inspiration from Pink Floyd, The Doors, Rush (among others) and amalgamated these influences with ambience, melancholy & forward thinking songwriting. Falling Deeper is not only great gateway into Anathema's past and present, it is the climax of Anathema's doom-focused days. By no means I'm saying that this surpasses the original albums - Absolutely not. However; This is one of the best compilations I have ever heard and a beautiful tribute to Anathema's past.

Disagree with the reviewer that this is a lazy effort compared to "Hindsight." With "Hindsight," the song structures are basically the same as on the original recordings, but with "unplugged" arrangements plus cello. Here, most of the songs are reworked from the ground up. It's arranged to float by your ears seemlessly over 40 minutes, with melodies splashing over you like waves. It's very nicely put together, but it's not quite my cup of tea, so that explains the 3.0

an interesting and calming listen. very gentle and scarce instrumentation. finally I get to know what the term 'turned down' really means, even I ultimately would prefer sigur ros' records over this one any day.

3.5 greatDarkNoctus | August 30th 11

really on the fence. first tracks are great, but some are awful, particularly Sunset of Age which is just far too busy and ambitious to have any kind of comparable atmosphere. Alone is just boring, as is J'ai Fait Une Promesse, or some just seem far too subdued to leave any kind of impression (We, the Gods).ri'd check out the first two or three tracks, though. :]
