All Music Guide:
Minneapolis' Judgement Of Paris achieved a strong cult following for their ethereal and evocative music. Unlike many dream-pop or darkwave bands of the early '90s, the group mixed influences from the Middle East and the Middle Ages into their music, and their lush arrangements were as likely to include dulcimers and ethnic percussion as guitars and keyboards. Named after the Greek mythological story of the Trojan prince who had to choose Aprhodite, Hera or Athena as the most beautiful goddess, Judgement Of Paris released 1992's Conversion on C'Est La Mort and appeared on the label's 6th Dr. Death compilation the following year before releasing 1994's Signal on their own imprint. Projekt Records re-released both albums in early 2000.
