Ricardo Bühler. The Gathering. If I were to pick any single Gathering album that would be the definitive album from the band, it would be IF Then Else. Coming off of the heels of 2000's successful and incredibly interesting experimental departure, How To Measure a Planet, If Then Else sounds to me like a consolidation of all the band had done in the past, combining the heavier and more straight forward emotional elements of their first few albums with the creative innovations of . It is therefore the perfect midway album, the segment between the band's energetic and. if then else. Type: Full-length. Co-produced by the Gathering. Recorded from January to March 2000 at Studio 'Koeienverhuurbedrijf', Purmerend, and 'S & K' Studio in Doetinchem, Netherlands. Mixed & mastered in April, 2000 on ProTools at Bauwhaus Studio in Amsterdam, Netherlands. If-Then-Else is that album. From Anneke's blistering performance on the appropriately titled opener Rollercoaster, which takes the listener on a loud, cerebral journey through the past and present creative eclipses of the band, to the haunting introspection of Amity. A deep crash of lush melody and tempest aggression encounter one another on Analog Park and Saturnine, creating a timeless focal point for the listener to fall into.

It may not be totally accurate to call this band alternative metal unless we listen to their 2009 album called The West Pole. I have to admit that for a long time, The Gathering and their music was too weird for me to handle, so the bands music was an acquired taste for me. For those of you that tire of the really heavy music that is so common in the metal genre, If Then Else is a wonderful alternative to listen to if you want to slow down, take the load off of your shoulders and DE-stress after a long day at work for example.
