Top Customer Reviews
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.
"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
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...Read more ›
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....

I don't really care for this CD. Don't know why, I just don't. I was fairly impressed when I heard the song "Deep" as a sample, and I like that song a lot, but nothing... Read morePublished on Feb. 5 2004 by mysanthropyk_overlord
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 morePublished on Jan. 18 2004 by D. Knouse
¿Como un disco puede llegar a ser tan, pero tan triste?. Es increible pero esta misma tristeza es la que te llama a escucharlo una y otra vez sin cansarte. Read morePublished on Feb. 14 2003 by mauricio soler
This album is truly amazing, along with all of their other work i've heard. It's consistantly good all the way through and its very easy to recognize that all the way through.Published on Jan. 20 2003
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 morePublished on Aug. 20 2002 by demontalented
Anathema is such an amazing and diverse band I wonder how I didn't discover them earlier. With Judgement, they make some of the most beautiful and inspiring music i've heard in... Read morePublished on July 8 2002 by IcemanJ
All what I can say is that I started to listen metal music in 1989 and this is one of the best musical discoveries I've ever had! Read morePublished on June 6 2002 by Luis
I was impressed by Alternative 4, but I was blown away by Judgement. Unfortunately however, it took me six months to figure it out. Read morePublished on May 24 2002 by Bret
