I think it's a pretty good album. It has it's weak points but also has some incredible moments.

I enjoyed it alot more than Morningrise. But Morningrise is a hard album to get into.. so.. I don't know. But overall, I prefer the new sound over anything Pre- My Arms, Your Hearse era.

Sorry, but that had to be said.
Agreed.

To me Morningrise is their best album, except for Blackwater Park, but it was the first opeth album that I got so it's kind of special to me. I got into it the first time I listened to it.

What the hell does age have to do with it? People on this forum (who obviously are some of Opeths biggest fans and therefore a good representation of Opeth fans everywhere) favor MAYH/SL/BWP.

Based on some of the crap I read on here from 18 year olds - many of whom can't even string a sentence together - I'm reluctant to respect their opinions.

Now, although the three albums you mentioned are all lovely in their own special way, Morningrise is by far their most original, most interesting and most authentic work.

These days Opeth are bordering on generic and that is why I'm starting to cringe when people ask me my thoughts on them.

But it just doesn't make sense Morningrise is much better than any of those, except BWP.

Respecting their opinions or not, it's fact.

But I understand your point, and I agree with you.

This is really depressing to read.

Of course, I can agree that the album aren't as hard as, say, MAYH, but who cares?
It's still pretty hard and filled with deep death voxx! I think its great they focus more
on the progressive and dark beautiful sounds!

PILE OF SHIT

I'm a big fan of Rush, and I mean BIG, I also highly respect bands like Camel & Porcupine Tree. I'm not a metal head despite liking a number of metal bands, and what is all this shit about 'not understanding' the music? Fuck off please if it bores me I dont listen, if it excites me I do.

Lol, your a moron. Go get educated about blues and jazz and come back to me. The main reason you don't like it is because you don't understand it, period. If your attitude toward music is one in which upon first listen it bores you so you don't listen to it again, how are you supposed to enjoy more music? Or learn about new music? If you don't care, then you can stay in your prison of ignorance.
