Anathema

 

We're Here Because We're Here 

Weather Systems

 

These were.....ok.  i recall why i didn't connect last time.  Musically it's great.  the lyrics are a bit too......Full House-y and Saccharine for me.  i appreciate  the Sentiments but give me dour Steven Wilson any day.

Every single human being I know who listened to these albums said the same thing. Me, all the critics, Prince Harry, heck, even John Cena asked for a refund.

 

...and then it clicked and we all decided to promote Anathema to superhero status.

It took me a few tries too and then it all clicked. But they are a bit preachy sounding still. I adore their instrumental tracks with the spoken word bits on it.

Camel -- A Nod and a Wink (2002)

 

Wanted to play some more Yes, but the Lovely Wife wasn't having it. She wanted something "easy listening" while she destroyed me in a particularly maddening game of Catan.

The lyrics never bother me...they never seem preachy to me, I just felt like they created soundscapes and the angelic vibe just fits.

Blind Guardian - A Night at the Opera

 

My favorite song?  "And Then There Was Silence".  Second favorite?  "The Maiden & The Minstrel Knight".

 

After that there are multiple other enjoyable songs - such as "Under The Ice", "The Soulforged", ""Age of False Innocence" & "Battelfield".  But for me this album is greater than the sum of its parts - like Nightfall in Middle Earth and Somewhere Far Beyond the album just fits together.  Rush were masters  (IMO) at making albums that were greater than the sum of their parts and the more I listen to BG I am coming to realize they excelled at it a well.

 

Overall I don't like it as much as Nightfall in Middle Earth or Somewhere Far Beyond but I do like the album more than Tales From the Twilight World and a lot more than Imaginations From the Other Side.

Sometimes I think this is my favourite BG album. It's just terrific! He follow up, A Twist In The Myth, is my least favourite and I rarely ever play it
