    BWP is a great album, the first Opeth i ever heard. Apart from MAYH, the only Opeth album which really seems to have a tight linkage between songs, in term of an underlying sound.
    ...but come on! Deliverance is far, far better. It was just a giant step up in production, skill, sheer musical exploration - put Leper Affinity next to Wreath, and LA just...lacks the depth (and heaviness). Blackwater Park, probably the best song on BWP (aside from Dirge) does not compare to, say, Master's Apprentices. Harvest vs. A Fair Judgement? AFJ is one of the best easy-listening songs to date. BWP was, and is a damn good album...but Deliverance was yet another step up for Opeth. I wait with baited breath for the next installment in the Opeth legacy personally!

    I know what ya mean deliverance. It's kinda like me and Deliverance... I think I just overplayed it though (still love it though, just not as fun on guitar).

    BWP is a much more dramatic, sad, epic song. The lyrics are more visual, too. While the soft segment in BWP is a turn on, the soft segment in MA is a joke.
    I like MA a lot but BWP is musically, dramatically, visually, lyrically far superior.

    In my mind BWP is easily the better album even though I listen to D1 alot more nowadays. Also I don´t really think the drapery falls is hyped or anything like that. It IS a fantastic song with one of the best leads I´ve ever heard. The real problem is that anyone who´ve listened to Opeth for more than six months have grown tired of "The drapery" simply because of constanly listening to it does that to you.
