On the note of Anathema, I actually got into these guys in 2001. A guy in my class found out I liked metal and came to school a few days later and handed me Alternative 4 and Judgement (which is kinda funny, cos those albums are really not metal). At the time, Judgement clicked, but Alternative 4 not so much. I LOVED Shroud of False / Fragile Dreams, played those two songs to death, but didn't like the rest of the album, so I didn't copy it, and, for some reason, didn't even bother getting a copy of those two songs.
Despite liking A Fine Day to Exit and A Natural Disaster as well, I've never actually considered checking out that album again, until this week. Listened to most of the tracks on youtube, and it now sounds like it'd be my favourite album of theirs.
And I had completely forgotten how amazing those first two tracks are. I literally hadn't heard them or thought of them at all in about eight and a half years, but on first listen, I remembered every tiny detail. I'm still baffled that I somehow ended up completely forgetting about them.
