ANATHEMA / Weather Systems (2012)

Weather Systems is layered symphonic, acoustic and piano driven with flawless accompanying percussion; there are of course still guitars, too. Each song builds upon the previous one until the whole thing becomes one engulfing wave that's both uplifting and beautifully saddening. Vincent Cavanagh always sounded better to me with clean vocals. His voice and harmonies are stronger and more emotional than ever. There's a fragility and a beauty on offer. Anathema have moved beyond maturity, into heightened serenity.

Songs of Note: Untouchable Part II; Internal Landscapes
