    What kind of an idiot slates an album after only one listen? Many albums, first listen i have been unimpressed, yet after repeat listens become favorite albums, where as most albums that i love on first listen i find i get bored with very quickly......



    I for one, cant wait to hear the new anathema album... also, while we are on the subject,
    The new gathering album is rather great actually, and funnily enough, i didnt think i was going to like it after the first listen.......

    I thought you were CRAZY when you first posted this... but now that I've finally heard the album... I have to agree with you completely!

    they arent losing any proft cause i aint buying the album. so the artist doesnt miss the income he would get otherwise, and i win the song.

    Well, you gotta do it with your ears wide open. Not attached to rip-finder and oldtime-lover feelings or stuff like that...anyway, everyone's entitled for an opinion. I enjoy the album too but a proper review should be made one year after the release...maybe one day this'll be your fave one...hasn't happened before like?



    But then again...





    ...fuck it!

    Well, anathema, antimatter and ulver are three quite distinct bands accused of copying portishead. It seems like anything with any electronics these days is a portishead copy like...I say fuck it! Just call it music FFS.

    the drums and the vox on the title track sound a bit portishead indeed. but i don't care. the song is brilliant.
