Probably their best yet,
This review is from: Souvenirs (Audio CD)
The Gathering is just the type of band that has never disappointed me. Ever since Anneke joined the band, each of their releases have just gotten better and better. And with Souviners the trend contiunues.
Souviners continues in the direction the band started with "How to Measure a Planet", longer, sprawling, atmospheric, dark "rock" songs that grip at your emotions. Anneke has never sounded more beautiful, and the rest of the band has written some of their most inspired music to date. Broken Glass, You Learn About It, and A Life All Mine (feating Ulver and former Arcturus frontman Trickster G) are just simply amazing songs.
If you're looking for something that sounds like Mandylion, look toward Lacuna Coil. If you're looking for something that pushes boundaries and is original, You'll love Souviners.
