Frankly I have been very much in doubt how to review this album. The music of The Ocean is always very interesting and intriguing in many ways and this album is no exception. My doubt lies in the fact that even though I really like what I hear when I am listening to the album nothing really stays with me, nothing is really memorable. So with that in mind the album still gets a very good mark, but not as good as it would have gotten if it had grown on me.
To describe the music of The Ocean is rather difficult as well, since a lot of styles and genres are mixed into something that is difficult to categorize but at the same time has a coherent feel. “Anthropocentric” is a tad heavier sounding than its predecessor “Heliocentric” that is reviewed elsewhere on this site.
Fans of the band will almost certainly enjoy this as will people with a taste for the unpredictable.
