Customer Reviews

Essential listening at a great price

These albums are all stunning works from a band that has shown a Midas touch to songwriting, no matter the genre. These works showcase the transition from from metal pioneers to purveyors of more alternative rock. Anathema are a group that have always written songs that they would like to play, which is a commendable trait in a time where the music industry is pushing for artists to fit the mould rather than break it. Not only do they do that but they have retained a loyal following who want to hear the music and have loved it every step of the way.
'We're Here Because We're Here' took the small but important step to a new part of the career and its success was built on the solid roots of the songs on this collection of albums.
Judgement is a solid record with a mix of down tempo interludes interwoven through well written, if slightly dated alt. rock. Nevertheless this record is not to be overlooked for quality.
'A Fine Day To Exit' has a similar pattern to the structure of the songs as 'Judgement' but takes a huge leap forward in terms of quality, both production and songwriting. Shaking off any dated sound, this album seems as relevant and fresh now as it was upon its 2001 release.
It's 2003 follow up 'A Natural Disaster' is equally as brilliant. There are some truly great moments throughout all of these records. They all contain moments of somber reflective tones mixed in with harsh metal riffs and uplifting melodic rock. Lee Douglas' appearance on the song 'A Natural Disaster' will send chills up your spine with the emotion she sings with. It works so well with Vincent's voice that you'll be jubilant of her more prominent role on the forthcoming album 'Weather Systems'.
If you are looking at this as a potential purchase I guaranty you will not need anything else on your iPod for a very long time and with 3 albums included for your £10, you're on to a deal.

While Paradise Lost and My Dying Bride got more attention from underground doom metal fans, Liverpool natives Anathema were just as important in creating a new strain of doom (sometimes referred to as doom/death) that drew heavily from atmospheric goth metal and, in the early days, featured gruff death-style vocals. Guitar-playing brothers Vincent and Danny Cavanagh formed Anathema in 1990 with vocalist Darren White, bassist Duncan Patterson, and drummer John Douglas, and originally called themselves...
