Prog Reviewer
4 stars Anekdoten's first brace of albums all largely chase the same broad style of heavy prog influenced strongly by mid- 1970s King Crimson, and an audience thirsty for new prog lapped them up eagerly. (For my part I find that they tend to sound a little samey, with From Within standing a little ahead of the pack.) A Time of Day finds the band sidestepping into a quieter style, with psychedelic influences suggesting that they had been listening to a good deal of 1960s proto- progressive works in the intervening years since Gravity, establishing a new sound for themselves which they would successfully polish further on the following Until All the Ghost Are Gone.

If you are highly invested in the early Anekdoten sound, take a breath and clear your mind a little before listening to this one, because it's not going to meet your expectations - but if you find that Vemod, Nucleus, and From Within tend to mash together into one indistinct mass in your head, you may find this the refreshing new take that Anekdoten needed.

Warthur | 4/5 |
