Sure it isn't as deep as in 'Alternative 4', Anathema's lyrical themes evolved without Patterson and has developed a much more straightforward look into depression. I also love that the lyrics is trying to speak to the listener throughout the majority of the album. Though I hate when I hear the lyrics "Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust" because it's too cliche and too overdone among many bands in rock and metal music, but that didn't really matter because 'Pitiless' still sounds great and has some skillful writing.
They are able to leave depressing songs inter songs that would be understood among a much broader audience. I especially loved how John Douglas took part in the songwriting process. It shows that things are all patched up between Anathema and Douglas and would remain that way for years to come. After listening to 'Judgement' a second time, I was left wondering if 'Judgement' was really their last gothic metal record, let alone playing even any metal.
It definitely shows the band evolving more to what they would later become, but it also show signs that the band still has heaviness in some of the songs.
I feel that gothic metal would be a better way to describe this album because you can still have melodic songs in a gothic metal record and still have mostly heavy stuff going on in it as well. In the end, 'Judgement' is the last record that showed any trace of metal and that's all I can really say about that. As for how the album sounded, 'Judgement' is still an impressive album that helped Anathema reaching out to a broader audience. Good parts of atmosphere, a great performance from Vincent Cavanagh, the return of John Douglas, and simple melancholic lyrics are a reason for 'Judgement's success.
Their best songs are still being played today and has helped the band with reaching bigger success with fans than 'Alternative 4. I guess Anathema decided that time that in hindsight it was a fine day to exit. Pun intended. The potential is certainly there, but it is not portrayed in the correct manner.
To me, whilst this record does differ in terms of the musical content, the appeal of Anathema is much the same as it has always been, even stretching back to the early days of the bands career when those crushing guitars laid down a superb doom metal sound.
However, do not let that take away from the experience. One thing Anathema has always provided me with is a lyrical connection. I could always relate to the lyrics the band provided with their music. That made Anathema special to me. I loved the way in which the music and the vocals could speak volumes to me, but in distinctly different ways. Track Listing. Daniel Cavanagh. The Beloved.
