Depressing Yet Uplifting

EMUSIC-00DD077E

If you only download one Anathema album, let this be it. The flow throughout the album is great, tracks blend into each other making it feel at times like one long song weaving in and out. The standout track is of course Judgement. A great play in melancholy, but energic enough to get you pumped up. The buildup throughout the song is fantastic, the dam waiting to burst.

beautiful pain

frozen-hearted

This album is filled with so much emotion. The lyrics are somewhat melencholy but they are sung so beautifully that you dont even notice when you start to cry.And when you cry you cant tell if its because your remembering a past broken heart or if its just the beauty of the song thats brought you to tears. Defenitly one of the best albums i have ever heard.

Depressingly Beautiful

Ruby

This is one of the most hauntingly moody albums in my collection. Originally, I thought they were going to be another clone-metal band, but was refreshed to discover actual musicality and composition holding up the moody, and melancholy elements of this band. The opening tune, 2000 & Gone is almost reminiscent of a drive I had down the California Coast once. But as the album progresses, it becomes more rythmically driving... in fact, this is a perfect road trip album, especially if you're on your own. Give it a good listen. It's got a touch of black-metal, but not enough to taint it as hopelessly faddish.

They Say All Music Guide

After the mildly disappointing Alternative 4, Anathema strikes back with Judgement. Upon first listen, the music and message seem a bit mellow for these doomy metal moguls. Second listen is like a magical rediscovery of a lost art form, the art of creating simple, depressing hard rock that is so emotionally expressive that it bends one’s own constitution. Quiet and introspective on songs like “One Last Goodbye” and “Anyone, Anywhere,” Anathema has the ability to spew forth raw, volcanic pain on cuts like “Judgement” and “Pitiless” — the last of which contains the most heart-wrenching solo the Cavanagh brothers have ever penned. Drummer John Douglas also surprises, making an amazing contribution to the album, by writing two of the most memorable songs, “Don’t Look Too Far” and “Wings of God.” The first is a gorgeous Porcupine Tree-like tune with somewhat upbeat female vocals and melodies. “Wings of God,” on the other hand, seems to be a literal interpretation of the album cover, which appears to be God’s blinding eye looking down upon the cursed world. One will be amazed at how unconventionally heavy this album really is. It even has a tendency to sap one’s strength, upon repeated encounters. Judgement is truly a blinding masterpiece, which pierces the senses with its intensity. Hail Anathema’s sorrowful return! – Jason Hundey
