referencing Alternative 4, CD, Album, CDVILE 73

This is where things started to get pear-shaped for Anathema. Their previous album "Eternity" was largely excellent despite some weak, off-key singing. "Alternative 4" sees Vincent Cavanagh improve on his singing considerably, but one cannot escape the feeling of listening to a lost Nickelback album - the typical Anathema atmosphere of despair and depression manifests itself here as pompous hollering with annoying self-pitying lyrics, and the somewhat meandering, Pink Floyd-esque songwriting is largely streamlined into the familiar radio-friendly rock song template, with the flat, compressed production only highlighting the changes. Although traces of the "old" Anathema do pop up here and there, "Alternative 4" marks the point in their career where the band saw most of their old fanbase jump ship and began appealing to a wider rock crowd, which it continues to attract today. The band would later improve on their new formula considerably with the strong "A Fine Day To Exit". "Alternative 4" should however be interesting for fans of the likes of Creed, Nickelback and Live.
