    General CommentIs it me, or is that theme at the end straight from Close Encounters of The Third Kind?

    Not that I care, because its one of the coolest movies about aliens ever made.

    General CommentThe beginning part of this song, when the flute comes really stands out, I think it's at about 1 min 7 seconds, is just so beautiful.
    It's hard to explain how a piece of music can express so much emotion but for me that part does. The whole song does but that bit does the most.
    It's so beautiful and tragic, a sorrowful elegy almost.

    Anathema will never be surpassed.

    General CommentThe chaotic violence is profoundly enhanced by the tranquil arrangements of fragile piano and delicate guitar ambiance before and after its powerful explosion. I like to think of the pre-eruption passage as a sort of 'calm before the storm', an oblivious moment of false security. The post-eruption passage has a more pronounced tone of sorrow, but also of acceptance of the violence as a necessary condition of reality. The build-up to the violent section is very intense, and Cavanagh's yearning guitar against the backdrop of angelic keyboards provides a wonderful sense of transcendence over the insane blasting percussion of John Douglass. This is one of their more abstract and powerfully dynamic compositions.
