THE GATHERING FINDING THEIR FEET...
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 28/04/2009 10:03:05
Almost a dance is the gathering's second album, following on from the first in song structure & use of soprano backing on some tracks, but is a major improvement in replacing the lead singer with niels duffhues, who uses none of the affected baritone heaviness that marred their debut - the title of the album is a concept that isn't really explained & in my opinion would've been better titled after the track heartbeat amplifier, which really sums up the lyrical & musical content throughout the set & especially niels' vocal style, that sounds rather breathless in effort to be heard against the band, & so more cathartic - his natural style is singing acoustic guitar songs, 1 of which is included here, nobody dares, & he sounds more relaxed on this solo number, though unfortunately, because its such a different sound to the other 8 tracks & is placed in the middle of them, does not flow with the rest of the album - mention must be made of the blue planet, because the drumming is as enthusiastic as anything you'll ever hear & overall this is a quality collection showing a lot of promise, but the band didn't really gel with niels, who left to pursue his acoustic style, releasing 5 albums on his own label...
