Anathema - Falling Deeper Cover

Early reworks fall just short of the bar...

It’s been well over 15 years since Anathema dispensed with their early death / doom sound and began their metamorphosis into an upright and respectable alternative rock outfit. In a move that’s sure to intrigue fans old and new alike, ‘Falling Deeper’ finds the Liverpudlian stalwarts reworking some of their earliest material, although anyone expecting a return to the heaviness of old will be left sorely disappointed. Featuring stirring orchestration, stately grand piano and the ethereal vocals of Danny Cavanagh, the resulting music is undeniably pretty, but that’s about all it is, with most songs sounding positively anaemic compared to the originals.
