I own over 800 CD's from all different genres. I've come to a point where I rarely pay attention to the lyrics in a song unless it's really catchy. Such was the case with Judgement. Nothing had really caught my ear. About a week after buying "Judgement," I was driving home from work when "One Last Goodbye" played. I felt a little spark. By the end of "Parisienne Moonlight," I had to pull over. For one reason or another, I'd actually listened to the lyrics, and it brought back a flood of memories. Every girl I'd ever loved and lost, every girl I'd loved and never told. All the things I should have said or done came flooding back like a maelstrom of pain and sorrow. No song or album has ever done that.
Since then, I've paid more attention to the album in its entirety. While I still think the aforementioned tracks are still my favorites, the emotional depth and impact of this album is undeniable. This is music with which everyone on earth can identify. The mood each song sets, the feelings described in the lyrics, and the emotions ellicited by the album overall are universal and undeniable; we've all felt them. I don't think it matters what genre of music you like. It would be a mistake not to check out this album.
Anathema no deja sus raices metal en este disco, no mucho en cuanto a la musica sino mas bien en el sonido, experimentan mas con guitarras acusticas, es una mezcla entre pink floyd, black sabbath y radiohead. Son 13 canciones, todas buenas por su eclectisismo y composicion, lo cual deja a Judgement a mi parecer como la obra maestra de Anathema.
There's dark, haunting tracks like 'Deep' and 'Forgotten Hopes', gentle piano ballads 'Parissienne Moonlight' and '2000 and Gone' and the awesome cathartic epics 'One Last Goodbye' and 'Emotional Winter'. The female vocals on several tracks are a great complement to Vincent's voice. The lyrics are, as noted by several other reviewers, woeful but they sound a lot more respectable coming from Vincent.
It still amazes me how underrated Anathema are - whilst retaining the musical complexity and emotion to appeal to metal fans, I've gotten many friends into this album who don't listen to anything but chart music. It's very accessible to listen to, provided you're not expecting simple, happy songs.
