The sense of fun that pervades the album is unmistakable and ‘colossus’ is a hugely enjoyable, wholly unexpected listen. Well worth checking out. 9
Super-fans will want the super-deluxe edition and I can understand that, even if I can’t entirely condone the cost. More irritating is the somewhat lacklustre 2-disc version which seems poorly served both in terms of packaging and content. 10 (for the music); 6 (for the package).
...an epic, cinematic record that marks out Ana_thema as one of the greatest and most innovative English bands since Pink Floyd and it is undoubtedly one of the finest albums of 2017, if not the decade. 10
For Floyd fans and newcomers alike, Roger Waters has delivered an album that casts a weary and frequently horrified eye over the societal changes of the last thirty years and whilst the view is not pretty, it most assuredly is compelling. 9
I have no doubt that Floyd fans like myself will still snap this album up, and will, to an extent, enjoy it. The experience, however, is ultimately marred by the myriad niggles that are present in this vinyl set. A shame.
Well worth checking out, ‘Dreamers. Dreaming’ is an emotionally charged and eclectic record that certainly warrants repeat visits.
Intelligent, imaginative music that will burrow deep inside the listener’s psyche, ‘a séance of dark delusions’ is an essential album for anyone who loves music thanks to the stunning melodies and its seemingly limitless replayability.
There is beauty and anger here, hope and loss, and the result is an album to which you will turn time and again. Find it, buy it, treasure it – your life will be the better for it.
