4.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully crafted, powerful reinterpretations September 27, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Following 2008's amazing Hindsight, Anathema have released their second compilation album, only this time focusing on their earliest material from their icy doom metal period. Whilst Hindsight involved songs from Eternity onwards, covering everything up to A Natural Disaster, Falling Deeper features interpretations of their doom era, especially their EPs, Crestfallen and Pentecost III, as well as their seminal full-length album, Serenades.

Their transition album, The Silent Enigma, a great piece of work in its own right, is unfortunately represented with a single tune, "...Alone." However, unlike the original track, which clocks in at a little over four minutes, this one is stretched into well over seven minutes. Cavanagh brothers' sparsely plucked acoustic guitars are set against a discreet keyboard backdrop building patiently towards its apex with sweet female vocals and an orchestral arrangement. Speaking of female vocals, Daniel Cavanagh's long-time partner Anneke van Giersbergen lends her distinct voice to the hauntingly beautiful "Everwake." Her lambent voice is the main melodic tool in the composition and culminates with a stunning finale (check out Danny Cavanagh on Anneke's Pure Air album if you want to hear her in a more vocal-based tune with fantastic acoustic guitars). On the other pieces, melodies are developed in a landscape of acoustic guitars and subdued percussion, all foiled by evocative melodies and subtle themes thanks to what the band calls their lead 'feedback' guitars.

Most of the songs are instrumental with vocal lines weaving in and out briefly during crucial moments.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, atmospheric not like everything else December 9, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Okay, I know lots of people are not fond of this album. I know this is the direction the band really wants to take....and most people are taken aback by it's musicality and lack of vocals. I think it's beautiful. I love this album. It is my current fave, and the strings and pianos, accoustic guitars, and haunting vocals take me away from the crap of everyday life. Musically, this album is really quite good. If you want to find it on the radio..yeah..well, not so much. This is the perfect background music for life. I have followed this band for a long time..and enjoy how they explore many types of music. This album to me, is the mature culmination of a group of musicians that make music for the beauty of it, not for what sells. Give it a few listens...it is amazing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Anathema moves further into the 'World Music' genre. October 7, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an interesting CD in that it takes the early Anathema tracks and just turns them totally around. Its extremely slow moving with some great melodies, orchestration and a very 'peaceful' vibe to the whole thing. The old doom laden tracks with harsh vocals, are now done in lullaby style and/or with the full orchestra treatment. Most of this CD is instrumental.

Not many musical ups and downs. Its a very slow moving glacier. You have to really absorb it or play it as you fall asleep. DON'T operate any heavy machinery when listening to this! If your looking for a real, proper follow-up to 'We're Here....' you may be very disappointed. This is 80% solemn, quiet and hollow in comparison, but has some satisfying moments and build ups. It doesn't have the fixating element to it that 'We're Here..' did. Quality Vocals when present(Especially the female Vocals are really well done. Angelic) and interesting layers aside, Its not nearly as diverse or satisfying.

That being said, they will be very hard pressed to come up with another CD in league with that masterpiece (We're Here...). I don't envy them for having to follow that one. It was brilliant. And these are not newly written tracks. This was not meant to be viewed as their next CD.

This release will definitely close the casket on any of the old 'Doom' Anathema fans (if any were left) as there are no musically heavy moments on this disc. But the interpretations are interesting, Danny Cavanagh's guitars and the orchestra are solid throughout. Its heaviness only comes with what you ponder when listening. It has a lot of heart-string tugging moments. Some songs go a bit long and take a long time to get going ('Alone'), but overall this will hold some of my attention until the next proper release. Just doubt it will get played 1/4 as much.

5.0 out of 5 stars When a compass finds true north. December 17, 2011
By Bumble
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Every now and then a band completely changes direction, sometimes it works and then other times, not so much. Falling Deeper is the perfect example of just how well new directions can work. This release feels like Anathema's compass finding its "true north". Everything works, every song, every element. This is a stunningly beautiful collection of haunting pieces that are artfully re-imagined "songs". I can't recommend it enough.

I'm hoping that Anathema follows this up with several more releases that capture the shear power (albeit quieter than their past efforts) of this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kind of a disappointment June 11, 2013
By D. Comp
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After the stellar release of Hindsight (their other rerecorded album), this one pales in comparison. Nothing bad but a lot of the songs are fragmented and they are trying to rerecord these in ways that they were not meant to be. Wasnt the biggest fan of the old death metal stuff but these are just lulling me to sleep. Highlight for sure is Sunset of Age with the crushing guitar solo at the end that the band has been known do on their last songs.

While I enjoyed Hindsight as a one off reinterpretation of later songs, this CD leaves me cold. I saw a brief interview online that this is their new direction. Read more
