    i'm a fan of opeth since his beginning. i like all style changes through the years, but when i listen ghost reveries i think something is missing.... brutality?.. feeling?... please give me your objective opinions from the album .. remember i'm a fan too but this album is for me a little weak, ultra progressive, but a little weaker than others.

    thanx

    Yea, I'd reply to this properly and I'm not trying to sound like a dick but this thread has been done to death already.

    Well I for one agree with the OP. Only tracks I like on GR are GoP, Atonement, and PARTS of BOTH and R/HF.

    At least this isnt one of those fucking "If you found out jim bob the drummer was gay would you still like the band" threads.

    my perception of the album is wrong?

    GR is a good album but not amazing for me.... is amazing for you?

    i'm not saying "GR is a weak album" , i'm trying to say "GR is less brutal than others"

    do you think GR is equally brutal than deliverance? (the last power album before GR) i don't think so

    ...I agree. I find it a very enjoyable listen, but I can't worship this one like some others. However, Beneath the Mire is in my top 8 Opeth songs.

    It mostly lacks brutality. It sounds like Mikael is smiling while singing in some places. Not that smiling is bad, but you know...

    You probably shouldn't have begun here with such a strong subject, thread starter...

    Yes, it's less brutal. But what does that have to do with being a good album? Do you listen to brutal music only? Do you only define good music by its brutality?

    GR is certainly not weak. Not even Opeths worst album, in fact i rank it as there 5th best right now.
