Best Anathema Songs

A list of the best songs by English prog rock/metal band Anathema.

The Top Ten

1 Untouchable, Pt. 2

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...

2 One Last Goodbye

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 *

4 Untouchable, PT 1

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.

5 Lost Control

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

Great song-
Life has betrayed me once again...

6 The Beginning and the End

Perfect, Perfect, Perfect Opening...

One of the best songs I've ever heard. takes my breath away every time

7 Universal

One of the most haunting prog songs - RalphSaad

The plovdiv version is incredible!

8 Ariel

Once you hear it you cannot take it out of your head, and actually this sounds awesome :D

Soothing, beautiful and strong.

My favorite song ever

9 Temporary Peace

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 written

Love it!

The Contenders

11 Internal Landscapes

This song is really amazing! For sure it should be at least on the top five

Top 3 at least...

12 Dreaming Light

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...

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 emotional

14 Angels Walk Among Us

Ville valo is not singing in this song right?!

It made me cry the first time I heard it - RalphSaad

15 The Storm Before the Calm

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!

16 Distant Satellites

The best song ever

17 Fragile Dreams

The energy in this song is simply charismatic.

One of the best songs of Anathema.

This song makes me cry

Simply the best!

18 The Lost Song, Part 2

Why is this song so under-rated?

19 Summer Night Horizon
20 A Natural Disaster

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

21 Don't Look Too Far
22 Closer

Driving relentless vocoder enhanced bastard of a tune..utterly brilliant..and then some.

23 Angelica

Best Music Of Anathema :X

Transcends time.

Fabulous melody that just takes me away...
And the minimalistic one on the Hindsight album is just Godd

Wonder ''

24 Anathema

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 heartbreak

25 Deep

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

26 The Lost Song, Part 1
27 Forgotten Hopes

It gives u a special feeling

28 Everything
29 Are You There?

Takes me away in a far away place every time I hear this song..

30 Lightning Song
31 Balance
32 Panic

An epic descent into the heart of darkness! This song is so powerful!

33 Thin Air

Mother of all songs, great

34 Restless Oblivion

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

35 The Lost Child

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?

36 Anyone, Anymore

Great piece. Awesome piano riff. - RalphSaad

:) I like that relaxtion music :X

37 Sleepless
38 Emotional Winter

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

39 Parisienne Moonlight

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!

40 Judgement

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.

41 A Dying Wish
42 Eternity Part III

Duncan Patterson doing his finest songwriting in Anathema, simply spellbinding.

43 Wings of God

Best Anathema song ever!

Great guitar solos - RalphSaad

44 Violence

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

Transcendent music

45 Shroud of Frost

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.

46 The Silent Enigma

The title track of this classic album

47 Release
48 Empty

this great music

49 The Gathering of the Clouds

Oh no is a best music

50 Breaking Down the Barriers

Dark and emotional song.

"I just can't lie down and die. It takes a lifetime to understand why"
