Life has betrayed me once again....
level   (85/100)
2번 트랙은 무난했고 4번 트랙이 인상깊었다. Bad Religion 의 음악을 리메이크한 13번 트랙도 색다른 분위기로 인해 자주 듣는다.

멋진앨범. anathema 특유의 우울함이 잘 묻어나는 앨범. judgement앨범에서 더 성숙된 음악을 들려준다.

이들만의 애절한 멜로디는 들으면 들을수록 매료되는 것 같다.

전작에 이은 연타석 홈런. 서정성은 더해지고 공허함은 더 깊어졌지만 강렬한 사운드는 여전하다. 한없이 암울한 나락으로..
level   (88/100)
이들만이 연출해낼 수 있는 우울함...
level   (90/100)
우울할때 들으면 10 배 더 우울해짐 -_- 대단하다 진짜
