Serenades Reviews

Reviewer :  level   (68/100)
Date : 
패러다이스로스트(Paradise Lost)와 마이다잉브라이드(My Dying Bride)의 뒤를 이어 고딕 메틀계를 이끌어 나가는 Anathema 의 데뷔 앨범 리이슈! 시적이며 철학적인 가사와 각 곡에 대한 뛰어난 구성력을 보여주는 앨범으로 아직도 그 완성도에 찬사를 받고 있는 수작이다. 고딕메틀의 암울함과 아름다움이 대비되는 정서를 느끼고 싶다면 더할나위 없는 작품.

Sleep In Sanity 한 곡만을 위해 존재하는 앨범 이건 진짜 둠메탈 최고의 곡이라고 엄지를 치켜세우기에 부족함이 없는 명곡 아닌 개명곡이지만 아쉽게도 나머지 트랙들 상태가 심각하다...

느림의 미학을 제대로 느낄 수 있다. 솔직히 여기에 지루함이 있단걸 부정하진 않는다.

celkom schopný debut, ale osobne sa m viac páči neskoršia tvorba Anathemy, aj keď aj tu mali už niektoré silné piesne

sleep in sanity빼고는 귀에 안들어온다...

다른 둠데스의 창시자들과는 다른, 몰캉하면서도 처량하고 서글픈 면이 있다. 가장 맘에 드는 곡은 sleepless
level   (75/100)
정규 데뷔작. 이 초창기 모습이 이후 Anathema의 정서를 계속 관통해서 진보했다고 본다.

전형적인 고딕메틀, 뭔가 한방이 없는.....
