    Who else is in love with this song?

    This song is full of win, a great blues song. Almost makes up for the fact that Opeth cover of "Would?" did not make it to the special edition disc.

    I agree. Mike's singing is so good on it too.

    Yes, they covered "Would?" but Mikael wasn't happy with it so it didn't make the record.

    It is an awesome track title. Reminds me of Planescape: Torment.

    Where did you hear that? I was under the impression from a few interviews he didn't want to blow all the covers on one release and save one for a future "special" edition release. To offer something extra and give some reason for a re-release.

    ^ He's never said such a thing. He did however say the cover wasn't very good.

    I also like bridge of sighs and I think mikael uses his voice very good on this track, sort of rock-blueish

    I love that song. Mikeal's voice sound so great on it. What pisses me off though is i have it on the SE DVD, but i want an MP3 of it to put on my ipod or something.

    I was watching the gigtantour dvd the other day and In the doco where dave is playing the prank on Mendez.

    Well in the background Glen drover (MD guitarist) is playing Bridge of sighs!

    just some useless trivia

    Currently the Opeth song I'm listening to most often. Love the bluesy/rough vocals.

    I like the "Would?" cover better.... it's not as good as the original, but they get away with it.

    Great, awesome cover, Mikael's voice at its best. Definitively kicks Would? cover's ass (which in my opinion suck a little bit..). Anyways. I always get da blues when listening to it.

    When I heard my fave band was doing maybe my fave song ever, I was pretty damn excited and when I finally heard it I could not believe it was such a great version!!!!!! I know Mike is the shit but BoS has been dear to me for 30+ yrs and he did an outstanding job on vocals, guitar and the sound of it alll!!!!!!!!!! I do not think ANYBODY could have done it better and that includes blues guys like Joe Bonamassa. Do yourself a favor and find some Trower and play the stuff! I still go see him 30 yrs later live and he still has it big-time!!!!!!

    That is a great song but I just hate the fucking rolls by Axe. I dont know what's the deal with it but I just dont like them. Guess he uses them too much or something.
