ANATHEMA A Natural Disaster CD

Customer Reviews

Definitely an essential album to add to your collection.

A Natural Disaster is a beautiful album, full of great melodies, musical ideas, song structures and just the perfect amount of aggression.
Amazon Customer
This album is very good but I still consider all 3 albums mentioned earlier better personally.

This is another successful addition to the Anathema discography, in the same vein as "Alternative 4" and "A Fine Day to Exit" (not as much "Judgement," even though that came out in between those) with its pianos and keyboards, and softer style songs. Anathema has been so far away from metal for a so long that I shouldn't even have to say this album isn't metal at all. Sure, some parts might be pretty heavy, but I still consider it heavier rock rather than metal. This album is very good but I still consider all 3 albums mentioned earlier better personally. And as always, Anathema?s lyrics are impressive.

It starts off calmly with "Harmonium," which slowly gets heavier, and is mostly a basic song? then comes "Balance" which kind of does the same thing. Here's the best part: Balance stops very suddenly and a new melody is introduced but seems like part of the same song. It starts off "Closer." This song is really cool; I don't know what it is that makes it so catchy and stuck in my head all the time. It has some very unique "robotic" vocals, and a very catchy melody with drums that keep building up. It is one of the few songs, on any CDs that I sometimes play 3-4 times in a row when listening to the CD. It?s definitely my favorite on the album. "Are you There" is a very emotional song, some may say it's melodramatic or cheesy, but it's not too much. It has prominent keyboards and Danny on vocals. "Childhood Dream" is a short but sweet instrumental, very melancholy and nostalgic. "Pulled Under at 2000 Metres a second" starts off with a very fast tempo, foreshadowing that it's going to be a relatively heavy song, and it definitely is.

I own all their albums and know how they've evolved. But the post-eternity-Anathema is something so beautifully carved onto rock music that one cant really escape its grip. My mood varies in marking "judgement" or "alternative 4" as their true masterpiece simply because when I hear the intro violins of "fragile dreams" & the immaculate literature in "inner silence" off alternative 4 and compare it with the heart ripping "one last goodbye" & the perfect composition of "emotional winter" of judgement, I get confused. For me the band has no main-stream and defined genre. It might get compared to katatonia or my dying bride or the sweet sounding opeth or even pink floyd-put-to-metal, but for me its a class in its own. "Temporary peace" was enough for me to get "a fine day to exit" and the cd cover of a lonesome boat surviving a disaster is more than enough to get "a natural disaster" as it speaks on its own about the profundity in their music.

A natural disaster has got nothing to do with their roots in terms of music genre. Neither has judgement, nor has alternative 4 and obviously not "a fine day to exit". It seems as if they've been changing the nature of sadness in all their albums, sort of like a maturity and persistence in melancholy in thoughts that makes them write those kind of lyrics and convert them into small musical master pieces. Now thats art. Malady in music is not about growling gothic stuff or screaming just like a guitar, its about maturity in the expression. My dying bride tend to do it, so does opeth with their exquisite lyrics.....but anathema is something else. While clinging on to its metal roots, it transforms into celestial kind of a sad impression marked with loneliness.

I can't understand how something can be so beatiful yet you can't touch it, that's how i feel about Anathema's music in this album and in A Fine Day to Exit, whenever i listen to Are you there?, Flying or Electricity i get this feeling that i can't explain it also brings so many memories, how can such a slow song bring this ruch of feeling to one's mind?

This album is amazing. It is a natural progression for a wonderful band that does not get the recognition that they deserve. I've been listening to Anathema for about 8 years now and every album has been an amazing. Their sound is very unique, putting you in a musical melancholic trance. This album is so much different than their very early work (Serenades,Pentecost III), yet the "Anathema" sound is still there. My personal favorites are Are You There?, A Natural Disaster, Flying, Electricity, and Violence. If you like this album, please check out Eternity, Judgement, Alternative 4, and A Fine Day To Exit. If you are a music lover, and appreciate the darker side of human emotion, then there is no way you will dislike Anathema.

a lot of people dont think this album is any good. i cant see why. yes, it is a lot different then i excepted, and it took me a few listens to get used to it, but now i can't stop listening to it. i bought it when it came out in november in england, and i've been listening to it ever since. i love Are You There? it is one of the best songs i've ever heard. i don't know i just love the song, espically the warm, calming music. Flying, Electricity, and A Natural Disaster are also among my favorites.
