5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting, melancholic bliss. Jan. 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is the album that got me into melodic black metal & goth - but this is NOT a metal album. This is 60 minutes of the most emotionally powerful music ever made - is there any band that can claim to ooze so much beauty or sadness in every note? Vincent Cavanagh possesses arguably the best voice in rock/metal. Songwriting duties are shared by the whole band making for a diverse album yet each track contains a similar distinctive sense of melody.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Raw, intoxicating emotion... June 16 2003
Format:Audio CD
This was my introduction to Anathema, relying only on the reviews i read here on amazon, i had no idea what i was in for
"Judgment" has 14 of the most beautifully saddening tracks i've ever lent my ears to, the CD sails on a rhythmic sea of smooth vibes while still delving you deep into a black undercurrent of depression; everything great about this album blends together to make a sonic masterpiece as fresh as an autumn breeze, until the climax of the title track where the listener is lunged into a tornado of clanging electric guitars, screaming vocals and drums banging away at breakneck speeds, until its fadeout and recesses to return the listener to its previous melancholic atmosphere
however, i'll be fair. Quite possibly the one thing that, despite its overall brilliance, still bugs me about this cd everytime i listen to it: the lyrics. Though they fit the mood of the CD very well, they simply lack eloquence and originality; however, the profound emotion in the lyrics more than makes up for it, it's just a slight smudge on the beautiful picture Anathema painted with this CD
this is also another one of those cd's that has to grow on you, i didnt think much of it my first couple listens, but spin it often it and the brilliance will begin to manifest itself

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Melancholic Art June 5 2003
By Rayhan
Format:Audio CD
Anathema is not just a metal band and this is not just an album. I mean can you imagine a stream of sentiments so pure and somber that they drag you along with its every single note? Never have I heard anything close to this masterpiece...Generally sad and melancholic musicians make up false emotions just for the sake of sticking to the genre or the line......staind is such example, although the music is good and somewhat sad, but the genuity and the pristinity of the work slips away when long-term effect is condsidered. Many other bands play sad music but none match the integrity of pure and true emotional experiences of this band. Anathema is one of those bands that being a master piece in itself is less known or generalized in actual public just like The Shawshank Redemption the movie is. Having a David Gilmour pink floyd touch and the best-sad-lyrics, its idiosyncracy can never be undermined. Alot of Anathema fans (having the image of Pre-Eternity-Growling-Anathema) think that this is just another album but what they fail to realize is that the band has undergone an emotional change for the best. "Black 91" Metallica is not equal to "Load" Metallica, but both albums speak extraordinary music. "Eternity" Anathema is not equal to "Serenades" Anathema and certainly both are not equal to "judgement" or "Alternative 4" Anathema.
The point is, that this albums is a full-fledged-best-of album that a band can ever produce. Just like Metallica weren't able to pull out anything better after "black 91".
If you listen to rock music (any category:- metal, hard, gothic, black, death or grunge), this album is a must! Its pure art, truly an emotional-agenda with the ability to grasp your attention like a drug...

5.0 out of 5 stars Swan Song Jan. 26 2003
Format:Audio CD
This was the third Anathema Album I bought (the other two being The Crestfalled EP and Alternative 4). I found myself lost in what can only be described as aural emotion. It is the most sincere, honest and muscially profound album I had heard at the time, and I can't really think of any other album that is as emotionally charged as Judgement. The songs are phenomonal. Pittiless, Forgotten Hopes and Destiny Is Dead seguay into each other beautifully (i later discovered that they were originally one track but broken into three for listening ease). Make It Right (F.F.S) is in a differant mood to the songs before it, and it's bleak nature is a perfect setting for One Last Goodbye, an Eulogy of sorts to Daniel and Vincent's mother, who had recently passed away. Don't Look Too Far is my personal fave, and Emotional Winter is a really great piece, very Dave Gilmour...
I have the Japanese Edition cd, with the Bonus instrumental track Transacoustic, and the album doesn't sound complete without this track.
This is in my opinion (I have all of Anathema's releases) their best album. It is superior to Alternative 4 in almost all ways.
Think The Silent Enigma/Eternity with beautiful vocals and layers of electric/acoustic guitars and you are on the right track....

5.0 out of 5 stars "For I have seen your waning smile"
There is so much sadness that resonates from this album, from the melancholy lyrics to the piercing and emotive guitars, that it echoes in my mind for days afterward. Read more

This is a good CD, but it's over-polished and can be repetitive. Anathema's biggest asset is their emotion. But I'm not extremely fond of how the express it. Read more
