Anathema - Weather Systems 2-LP (Black vinyl)


Overall, if you couldn't stand what Anathema had been doing prior to this album, it's rather unlikely that Weather Systems will change your mind. It has some subtle elements referring to the past and slightly darker moments, but it also demonstrates clearly that the band is not going to leave the direction they've chosen several years ago. It's an album that manages to be quite complex, but also very catchy; monumental and subtle; clever and emotional; but most of all...
...it sounds like a band having a lot of fun writing and playing music, and it makes the album incredibly powerful.
