2 stars this is the last release of the second period of the band...after that they would turn into a mixture of Portishead, Massive Attack and Pink, this is the last release of Anathema where you can find heavy guitars...they're both top songs of atmospheric metal...i don't know if i really miss them cause even though i'm a huge metal fan, i find both "A Fine Day To Exit" and "A Natural Disaster" excellent albums.. anyway, this is a collector's, unless you have all other releases of the band, pass by this promo single...

2 stars OK, let's just get this straight. This is nothing new to the Anathema catalogue. It is merely two songs from the master work Judgement made into a short EP to promote the album. I personally only got this for the artwork, and it is a pretty cool front cover with some entertaining stuff in the sleeve, but honestly - go out and buy the actual album. This is only a snipet, and probably not the strongest songs on the record. This EP however does represent a switch in periods for the bands. The transition from straightforward, high quality Doom Metal into the heavily Pink Floyd influenced melodic progressive doom metal phase. The two songs are pretty good actually. But no where near as good as the rest of the album, and more another 5 big ones more, you can purchase Judgement, their magnum opus. Don't waste your time and money on this one unless you are a collector/fan. In that sense, I will give this EP a two star rating, as it brings absolutely nothing to the Anathema discography.

3 stars 'Deep' - Anathema (Single)

This is more or less; a taste of the real thing (that is, the 'Judgement' album.) This takes two songs (although the best of the best is still left on the album) that more or less describe what the album is about. I like these choices, but the best song on 'Judgement' would still have to be the tear- jerking 'One Last Goodbye' (which stands as being one of the most beautiful songs I've ever listened to in my entire life.)

If you can buy the actual album, it's better to go that route. 'Judgement' is a beautiful masterpiece, and to date; the band's greatest and most majestic work. This is but a taste of grandeur.
