    Weather Systems stands with Anathema's finest work.

    Weather Systems should be considered another milestone for Anathema because it is most certainly an improvement on everything they've been working towards, but in all the commotion and attention to the minute details the band may have lost sight of the bigger picture, leaving everything just a bit too sterile and formulaic to truly be considered anything more than excellent.

    There's so much going on throughout each of these nine songs that it's hard to take it in all at once, yet whether it's because of time shared or friendship and family connections, the performances are in perfect sync.

    Weather Systems stands as a solid release in its current form; it's moving, challenging, and (because this is Anathema we're talking about) incredibly beautiful.

    Weather Systems is entirely devoid of death growls and contains only the barest hint of volume and aggression. What it does have is lush instrumentation and a sense of drama without the use of distortion. [28 Apr 2012, p.53]

    Intricate and thoughtful, it recalls the work of Porcupine Tree's Steven Wilson. [Jul 2012, p.102]
