"...Anastasis can be described most accurately in these two manners. In one, there’s Brendan Perry with his deep, booming lines. His voice infuses tracks like “Opium” and “Children of the Sun” with a Morrissey-esque, melodramatic drawl reminiscent of British shoegaze or post-punk. He’s complemented wonderfully by lush string sections, French horns, and piano riffs; it’s a concoction that makes it especially hard to nail down a specific genre for the mixture.
