Four years after their impressive _...One Day Less? debut release, the band comes back with a revamped lineup and a richer and broader sound. Taking full advantage of Gary's vocals, the band's sound shifts between traditional growls and clean ?regular' doom style vocals. The music is a lot better crafted and the hopelessness feeling given by the melodic passages is as good as it can get.
With the opening _And the World Ends There?, the band quickly shows the level of maturity they achieved since their last release. The mixture of vocals is done magically and the melodic passages are excellently crafted, some sections of this song will remind you of older Anathema (_The Silent Enigma? and _Pentecost? era). The weeping guitars near this song make it very enjoyable for fans of the genre.
