The Silent Enigma represents a turning point in Anathema's career (it is the first album to feature guitarist Vincent Cavanagh singing lead vocals, replacing Darren White) and sees the start of the band's gradual progression from doom metal to a softer style of rock. The album was originally titled Rise Pantheon Dreams, a title later used by White for his post-Anathema project The Blood Divine.
Where Darren's vocals were more guttural, Vincent's newer style pushed the possibilities for Anathema onwards and upwards, with a scope and breath beyond his years. Lauded by the metal press, the album has since been described by Terrorizer magazine as "one of Anathema's best".
