The fact that the main songwriter Duncan Patterson Anathema left the band is fortunately hardly noticeable on "Judgement".The guys were in full cry instead of - and set a milestone of Melancholic Rock with their fifth album.

EMP Editorial Team (18.11.2005)
An album to the center of your own soul, to the center of spherical rock music. "Judgement" shows great skills and shows the successful combination of inner salvation which was especially found by singer/guitarist Vincent Cavanagh. "Judgement" is exactly the album the international press believed Anathema capable of. Which means the step away from a 5-head doom/death formation to a band who threw ballast and anarchonism overboard and from now on sound agreeably commercial. So, if the wahwah guitar in "Don't look back" starts kicking and when the "Emotional winter" breaks out this band reaches spheres which even Pink Floyd were only able to reach during their most ambitioned times. Just like "Dark side of the moon" - an album for eternity.

The British band 'Anathema' has brought to us their fifth album 'Judgment'.
Judgment could be described as atmospheric doom rock. In this album the band took a sense of melancholia with long, sustained notes, and haunting acoustics.
Every song features different things and melodies, but they all share a sense of gloominess. One Last Good Bye is probably the most touching song ever written with the vocals from Vinny as his brother's lyrics talk about the passing of their mother. Drummer Jhon lap surprises making an amazing contribution to the album writing two songs.
The album has everything you can expect from the band: great songs, huge sound, sad and haunting melodies, beautiful acoustic guitars and piano.
