    well, opinions differ, thats ok. BWP is my least favourite Opeth album (if you cound Deliverans and Damnation together as one, as they were originally meant to be released) i's rank Opeth albums this way:

    1. MAYH
    ...
    2. Still Life
    3. Orchid
    4. Morningrise
    5. Ghost Reveries
    ...
    6. Deliverance/Damnation
    7. Blackwater Park

    this doesn't mean BWP isn't good. it's just nowhere near the brilliance of MAYH.

    And the rest I can't decide cos I only like a couple of songs on all those albums.

    If still life could live up to its two opening tracks it just might be up there with blackwater.

    The Moor, is the single, greatest Opeth song imo....period! Still Life is definitely the pinnacle of their career. That's the one they still have to top. Now, Godhead's Lament "clean" vocal part is arguably the single, greatest moment on that album.

    Aye, it's hard to compare all the songs on the album because even Moonlapse is full of jazzy beauty. I love the jazzy solo thrown in there - pure class! Moments like that are hard to come by...

    Bleak, April Ethereal, The Moor, Godhead's Lament and When are the 5 best songs from the band. That's quite an easy list for me to make, actually...to me, there's just no denying it. Those songs are like "sex" to me, hehe.

    Note: I actually started off with Morningrise, and of course it was my favourite album for quite some time. But now, it feels a bit generic...

    I think they just topped Still Life with Blackwater Park...SL is a very close second.

    Moonlapse Vertigo is the best song off Still Life. Well its at least my favourite. The clean vocal part at the end is fucking orgasmic.

    Also a great moment on Still Life

    'The Moor' ist overrated imho. it's a good song, but it doesn't even come close to 'Godhead's Lament' or 'Moonlapse Vertigo', which are just awesome, esp. 'Godhead's Lament', my favourite song on Still Life. if i'd chose my favourite Opeth songs that would be:

    1. Karma
    2. Godead's Lament
    3. The Twilight Is My Robe
    4. Advent
    5. April Ethereal
    6. When
    7. Dirge For November
    8. Credence
    9. Moonlapse Vertigo
    10. Baying Of The Hounds
