Best Anathema Songs

A list of the best songs by English prog rock/metal band Anathema.
The Top Ten
Untouchable, Pt. 2 Untouchable, Pt. 2 Cover Art

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

It's not a "bit" poppy, it is pretty much pure pop music, that does not imply it's bad though.

Simply magic,another great song from a great band

One Last Goodbye

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.

My first choice, very touching, beautiful guitar with lyrics and the voice.. It all seems perfect to me. And on top of that it isn't that sappy

You took my heart away
This is amazing
I really feel the pain whenever listen to this damn perfect music
It deserves first place

This song is simply AWESOME! It made me cry the first time I listened to it...

Untouchable, PT 1 Untouchable, PT 1 Cover Art

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.

Flying

Watch the live version for an extended guitar solo that will send you "flying"

My first beloved Anathema song! It's great! Especially ending part

This is why I loved anathema in the first place! this song is a pure awesomeness

This is not fair to this song the 9th
The ending part is just awesome

Lost Control

Vincent's voice was so big in this album, now it is so much poppy

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

Vocal, lyrical and musical masterpiece

How much longer to I hit the ground...

Universal Universal Cover Art

One of the most haunting prog songs

The plovdiv version is incredible!

The Beginning and the End The Beginning and the End Cover Art

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

Perfect, Perfect, Perfect Opening...

Ariel

Soothing, beautiful and strong.

My favorite song ever

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

Temporary Peace

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.

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.

Such a bleak, depressing soundscape full of hopelessness, only so damn beautiful!

Man, this is easily the best from Anathema. come on people, stop voting untouchable...

Internal Landscapes Internal Landscapes Cover Art

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

Top 3 at least...

The Contenders
Regret

I just can not believe "Regret" is not among the top 5!
I've lived with this song for so many years and I cannot stop listening to it

So much love for this song, touching, emotional and intense as no others!

I can't stop myself listening to Regret & The Lost Child. Wonderful Songs!

Anathema is my idol, and regret is a masterpiece!

A Simple Mistake A Simple Mistake Cover Art

I expected this to be number one it moved me so deeply a favorite all time song. but the other songs above this number 10 are also awesome

This is without a doubt my favorite song by them, the incredibly beautiful and sad first half and the incredibly brutal yet full of hope second half. It's just perfect, and the production is top-notch! Love it :D

The best song ever and surprised not to see this song in top five

Delightful

Angels Walk Among Us Angels Walk Among Us Cover Art

Ville valo is not singing in this song right?!

It made me cry the first time I heard it

The Storm Before the Calm The Storm Before the Calm Cover Art

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!

Epic 'stormy' start, to fade out in an emotional grand finale! Love it!

Masterpiece, from first till last second.

Distant Satellites

The best song ever

Summer Night Horizon Summer Night Horizon Cover Art

Underappreciated, remarkable song.

The Lost Song, Part 2

Why is this song so under-rated?

Dreaming Light Dreaming Light Cover Art

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.

This Song has always the Power to let my Tears flow...

I think of someone I loved when I read this song.

Fragile Dreams

Best of anathema when it was actually a metal band, new songs suck hard.

The energy in this song is simply charismatic.

One of the best songs of Anathema.

This song makes me cry

Don't Look Too Far Don't Look Too Far Cover Art
A Natural Disaster A Natural Disaster Cover Art

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

Deep Deep Cover Art

This is literally the only good song this band has

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...

The Lost Song, Part 1
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

Seriously this song is amazing,
it contains all of their works emotions at once.

What a bridge riff! Dayumn!

Angelica

Reminds me of the pain of losing the love of my life, a truly special song.

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

Best Music Of Anathema :X

Transcends time.
