Anneke's voice is the most beautiful voice I have ever heard for her talents are undenyable. The rest of the music is very spacey with doomy guitars and flowing atmosphers. Although the music is not extremley talented it is unique.

Great voice and decent band however the song "Strange Machines" is so strong that it makes the rest of the CD sound dull! Buyer beware.

This is The Gathering at their finest. Anneke has an amazing voice. This album is probably the heaviest of their post-death metal albums. Strange Machines, Eleanor, and In Motion Part 1 are some of my favorite songs. I highly recommend this album.

In Motion #1 is possibly one of the best atmospheric metal songs ever. keep it up, TG. you will never get old.

Totally agree with you Dani Filth.I don't know (and please correct me if i'm wrong)this band is underrated in all aspects(it's quite hard to see them performing live in metal festivals nowadays) and with all the invasion of girl-fronted bands they are drowning into the shadows of anonymity.the album? 7/10

From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 25, 2016 at 18:12
Listening again to this pleasant album..."Strange Machines" is the band's best song IMHO and by far my fave one...tracks 2,3 & 8 are also good cuts...65/100
