Lost To Apathy
Listening to this again, I'm remembering how much I dig the songs and melodies on it. And Everwake is still stunning.

This is probably my favourite Anathema release from their Death/Doom era.

Better than 'Pentecost III' is my opinion. I feel the Death/Doom genre worked well with Anathema in the early 90's, although now they obviously use different styles. The title track and 'They die' are sure highlights for me.

The two demos seem quite pointless after hearing this EP. Clearly an improvement, but I see here's still room for some more good stuff.
