Review: Daniel Cavanagh – 'Monochrome'

A lot of this material could easily have made it on to the last Anathema album or any future album; that’s how highly the band rate it. There are several highlights: ‘The Exorcist’ and ‘The Silent Flight of the Raven Winged Hours’ are among some of my best works of the last decade. Taking them from the band was not an easy decision but I am glad; they’re so personal as to not need more input.” This is a much more traditional album than I was expecting. Songs have a more conventional structure, and the electronic sounding drums of the last Anathema release are absent. The sound is much more natural and organic with its use of piano, acoustic guitars, real drums, and violin. It’s a style I’d prefer to hear Anathema move more towards, and perhaps further away from some of the more electronic sounds that have been recently introduced. “Monochrome” is an album that all but the pickiest of Anathema fans will be happy to have in their collection. Highly recommended for those seeking something a bit more relaxed, easy going, and chilled out. Available now on Kscope music. Review: Martin Patterson]]>
