Product Description

Amazon.ca

A Fine Day to Exit, the sixth album in 12 years from Liverpool's portentous Anathema, sees them moving away from their gothic roots and toward a strange hinterland where the dynamics and brooding passion of Radiohead's OK Computer goes hand in hand with the dark edge of the final Soundgarden records and the full-on rock power of Cradle of Filth. Vincent Cavanagh's deep, sonorous voice invites comparison with both Chris Cornell and Roger Walters, and songs like the piano-led "Pressure" and the heartfelt title track revel in a sense of isolation and grandeur. "Underworld," meanwhile, repeats the line "This feeling is over" like it's the penultimate event of the band's existence. While a little too in thrall to Radiohead in spots, this is still a powerful and moving album. --Everett True

5.0 out of 5 stars No exit for anathema Dec 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is a more exprimental record from anathema than their earlyer records. A little more proggresiv elements in it. The songs are fuzzyer and not so clearsounded than on judgnent, less gotich than eternety and silent enigma. This is a new sound in anathemas groving and take you to another level in the music.The records theme is about a fake suicied. It is not so harmonic and mellow than judgment, it`s more rougher songs on this one, still there is deeper and quietnes almost reflection in some parties on this. It`s swinging between aggresion,sadness,melancolic feeling, reflection and hysteria. Maybe it`s because of the records theme the sound is more unclear and muddy. It took me a while to understand this record, when I have listen to it for a while it become more understanding and I become truly to the sound on this album. And for me it`s tell me that this is a good record, it have to grov inside you, then it become`s great. Deatails and harmonics that you don`t heared before will become there for you`re ears and the music becomes more hole and theigt. This is a powerfull record from anathema, lots of energy but have quetness and reflection inside of it self. If you like a theme records you`ve will like it. A bit like Pink Floyd The Wall in it`s composition. I recomend you this one. Great songs on this record is:Pressure,Looking inside out,Panic,A fine day to exit but if you want to understand this record you have to go deeper and listen to the whole album as one piece. Then it becomes great.Enjoy

4.0 out of 5 stars ok, here we go... May 5 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
ive read all of the reviews of this album and thought id add my two cents. first off i have been an anathema fan since eternity. that being said, i have seen the transformation they have undergone. alternative 4 was pretty cool, judgement was absolutely mindblowing, and now a fine day to exit. when i first heard this album i didnt like it, i was still all about judgement. now two years after its release i bought it, my opinion has changes... i love this album. once i got over my obsession with judgement i saw the full beauty of this release. its a very atmosheric listen, a welcome change to grinding metal. is it different from their previous releases, yes. is it a good thing, yes. it is necessary for bands to evolve. who wants to hear the same songs over and over? people are comparing the album to radiohead and pink floyd. think about that... listen to pablo honey then to kid a... listen to piper at the gates of dawn then to the wall... bands change, but great bands remain great. buy this cd, you may not like it at first, but you will.

2.0 out of 5 stars This has nothing to do with JUDGEMENT June 6 2002
By Luis
Format:Audio CD
The first thing that I must say is that I immensely loved "Judgement", that was the reason why I bought this album.
I'm an old Metal fan, and I considered "Judgement" one of by biggest musical discoveries ever..
But this has absolutely NOTHING to do with their previous album, this is nothing more than a typical "british pop-rock" rock in the wave of Radiohead and stuff like that... I don't mean that it's "bad music" at all... some people could consider it a masterpiece (??)... but I simply cannot appreciate this... I like some songs like "Underground" and "temporary peace" but it's nothing compared with Judgement.
"Judgement" is not an album that a narrow-minded metal fan is supposed to like... it's a mellow, emotional, melancholic album.... it's an album that is accessible to everyone who simply likes "good music", but it has a "metal" wave in it, most open-minded metal fans could get into "Judgement"...
...but "A fine day to exit" is an album that I wouldn't recommend to most of the people, it`s like listening to a completely different band, the songwriting, the production, everything... if you like Radiohead, Oasis and "british pop" in general you could like this, but prepare to be dissapointed otherwise...

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Album May 25 2002
By IcemanJ
Format:Audio CD
Even though Anathema has completely evolved from their old style, this album is genius. This was my introduction to the band, but it made me want to own all of their work, and I plan on collecting all their albums in backwards order. I do understand their older stuff was more metal and had a gothic element. This album has an acoustic feel most of the time. "Pressure" sounds like something Radiohead would do, because of the piano loop, but that's only the real Radiohead influences I can hear. Dispite what others are saying, I don't think the album has that many songs that have predictable melodies. "A Fine Day to Exit" (the title track) and "Release" are very progressive. They both start out nice and quiet and get gradually heavier. The title track especially is an awe-inspiring, haunting tune and the acoustics in "release" have a very peaceful and tranquil, yet upbeat feel. "Looking Outside Inside" has a kind of sudden unpredictable direction somewhere in the song also. "Panic" is a real suprise. This song is brilliant, the lyrics, and the fast-paced, stressful feel. It is some of Anathema's best work so far. The singer's vocal range and melody sounds great on "Leave no Trace" and "Barriers". Finally, we have "Temporary Peace", a real treat. The moment "Beyond this beautiful horizon lies a dream for you and I / This tranquil scene is still unbroken by the rumors in the sky" is sung, it is one of the most astonishing and satisfying parts of the album, and shortly after that you hear the sound of ocean waves to end the album. Perfect ending to a perfect album. This should probably be your introduction to the band. Definately pick this up if you like Dredg. Read more ›

Wow! This album is really cool. I haven't heard much of Anathema's older stuff, but I guess it had more of a metal feel to it, or so everyone says. Read more
