Best Anathema Songsedmasson A list of the best songs by English prog rock/metal band Anathema.
The Top Ten
I've listened to this band for 20 years now. And I seem to understand why other people may want the older songs like emotional winter or are you there. It is based on the time you felt strongly about the band. If that's the case, I'd go for Angelica... However it is worth seeing the transition here... Untouchable is a song about redemption... and it beautifully fits the time landscape of the band...
Unbelievable change of sound from a wonderful band; this comes from an old fan. this track is the best I've heard recently!
A bit poppy but very emotional - RalphSaad
Very emotional...V 6 Comments
I can't believe this is here! Who vote to their new album songs while this song and lost control arnt even in top 10! I mean what the hell! Where are their real fans?
You know when someone asks you what your favourite song in the world is and you have to think about it for a long time? For the past 14 years I don't have to think even for a second.
No song can come close to the emotions this song has. From the acoustic intro to the heart wrenching solo. This so is perfect. Oh and Vincent's vocals are just perfect.
This song is simply AWESOME! It made me cry the first time I listened to it...
This song awesome *V 17 Comments
I always fly with flying...
Watch the live version for an extended guitar solo that will send you "flying" - RalphSaad
My first beloved Anathema song! It's great! Especially ending part
This song Feels like I'm Flying above YOU...V 3 Comments
One thing I love about Anathema is that all of their albums I've listened to so far have the most amazing starts and well this song is no exception. Never get tired listening to this one...
The best love song I have ever heard.
This song touches you literally.
Great, great, great, great, great, great, great,
How much longer to I hit the ground...
Vincent's voice was so big in this album, now it is so much poppy
Life has betrayed me once again...
Perfect, Perfect, Perfect Opening...
One of the best songs I've ever heard. takes my breath away every time
One of the most haunting prog songs - RalphSaad
The plovdiv version is incredible!
Once you hear it you cannot take it out of your head, and actually this sounds awesome :D
Soothing, beautiful and strong.
Come on people, I don't understand why this song is not on the list, It clearly deserves to be number one. Followed by Lost control.
Anathema can't have a top ten sadly. Hardest task ever. I'd vote for this song because it is incredibly underrated and insanely beautiful.
Man, this is easily the best from Anathema. come on people, stop voting untouchable...
One of the most hauntingly beautiful songs ever writtenV 1 Comment
The best song ever and surprised not to see this song in top five
Love it!V 1 Comment
This song is really amazing! For sure it should be at least on the top five
Top 3 at least...
In their recent Cathedral tour they did acoustic version with both Vince and Lee doing the vocals. They absolutely nailed it! Incredibly atmospheric.
Man I love this song. Can't decide between One Last Goodbye or Dreaming Light. One Last Goodbye is more from the heart but Dreaming Light gives me chills. - coccoreccy
The best Anathema's song forever
The Name Says It All...V 4 Comments
Anathema is my idol, and regret is a masterpiece!
The best thing about anathema is your guaranteed a special album every time one is released with top notch production
So much love for this song, touching, emotional and intense as no others!
Deep and emotionalV 8 Comments
Ville valo is not singing in this song right?!
It made me cry the first time I heard it - RalphSaad
Seriously? Not even top 10? Every second of this song is unbelievably beautiful.
Honestly don't know how many times I've re-listened to this song!
Masterpiece, from first till last second.
Epic 'stormy' start, to fade out in an emotional grand finale! Love it!
The best song ever
The energy in this song is simply charismatic.
One of the best songs of Anathema.
This song makes me cry
Simply the best!V 3 Comments
Why is this song so under-rated?
My first choice will be one last goodbye, but number 2 is surely a natural disaster, interestingly and unexpectedly good duet with Lee Duglas, beautiful guitar and singing, melodic and very impressive with lyrics. These 2 songs (one last goodbye and natural disaster) are like a dialogue between a split up couple, I'd recommend you to listen them together in a row with lyrics in front of your eyes
Why this song is no:17? This song is my number 1 surely but at least should be in the top three in this list.
Yes this music is vmy number 1 my number one is angelica
Driving relentless vocoder enhanced bastard of a tune..utterly brilliant..and then some.
Best Music Of Anathema :X
Fabulous melody that just takes me away...
And the minimalistic one on the Hindsight album is just Godd
I think this is one of the best songs on this album... there comes a time when the melody takes it slow.. and it is as if the singer realises something and regrets it...
This is literally the only good song this band has
A very obvious number 1 song and I agree, followed by A Simple Mistake, Fragile Dreams, Flying...
This is their best song closely followed by A Simple Mistake, Fragile Dreams, Flying & Panic
What a bridge riff! Dayumn!
Listen closely, you’ll get the feeling if you’ve experienced heartbreakV 1 Comment
It gives u a special feeling
Takes me away in a far away place every time I hear this song..
An epic descent into the heart of darkness! This song is so powerful!
Mother of all songs, great
Only two (TWO) songs from the amazing "The Silent Enigma" on this list so far? Such a shame...
Amazing song. When I leasten this I fall into fear - pruvet
Amazing song. No words can describe it.
What is this song doing here?!?! IT SHOULD BE NUMBER 1
Lost child should be in top 10 amazing song
I shiver when I listen to this and you guys just 30 it?V 3 Comments
Great piece. Awesome piano riff. - RalphSaad
:) I like that relaxtion music :X
Are you guys serious? This song should at least be in the top ten.
Shouldn't be so low. Great song with both an alternative and "Pink Floyd"ish sound to it. - RalphSaad
Number 1.. Nothing less than this
Great piano riff with haunting vocals - RalphSaad
I came here to find their next top song!
I was pretty sure that it was the top one!
This song is amazing
I have nothing to say!
Duncan Patterson doing his finest songwriting in Anathema, simply spellbinding.
Best Anathema song ever!
Great guitar solos - RalphSaad
44? Every part, every second of that beautiful instrumental is surprising and original. As someone else in the comments stated, something in the vein of Pink Floyd (their main influence) 30 years later.
For me, by far their best song. Pink Floyd in the 2000's. A prog rock masterpiece. - RalphSaad
I can see that the newer songs dominate this list, but hey! Shroud of Frost is a masterpiece with an amazing mood-metal worthy any musical top list ever.
I had to add this one on! I am shocked people. I seriously thought that out of the rockier part of their career, this was up with Fragile Dreams.
The title track of this classic album
this great music
Dark and emotional song.
"I just can't lie down and die. It takes a lifetime to understand why"
