I never question anything Opeth does. As a fan of the band, I force myself to enjoy everything they record, even if my initial instinct tells me it's wrong. At first I thought that Akesson was not a good fit for Opeth, a very average guitarist, someone who didn't seem to understand the aesthetic of Opeth. But then I realized that I shouldn't judge any decision made my Akerfeldt & co. because what's the point in being critical? Why not just enjoy the music? I would love to meet up with Akesson over a scone and a cup of tea.
