To be on the safe side one can always place this album next to King Crimson's Red yet this album will not only please lovers of avant-garde but songs like "Nucleus," "Rubankh," "Harvest" and "This Far From The Sky" will certainly score with fans of grunge as well. Like Happy Family, Anekdoten knows how to create a surprisingly aggressive sound. From a fierce sound Anekdoten suddenly switches towards modest parts as in "Here" where next to a wall of mellotron sound real violin and real cello bring the calm back bit by bit. If you see what an important role a band like King Crimson has played over the years then you certainly have to take a note of Anekdoten.
