    Guitar is clipping a bit. Nice vocal style change, thought he was gonna go full on Foreigner with it this time around.

    Hard to believe that for the longest time this was my favourite band. What happened to the guys who put out a masterpiece like Still Life.

    I could see this fitting in with the album. It's not my favorite song, but it sounds like it might be the Ghost of Perdition of the record- kind of repetitive, but some nice riffs and solos. Assuming the other tracks will be a bit different.

    This is not what I was hoping for. Don't see myself picking up this album, unfortunately.

    I heard the song last night and really did not enjoy it. I'm hoping there are going to be better tracks on the album.

    Probably the only one who enjoyed it very much. But again, I'm slowly drifting away from metal and dig old stuff like Return to Forever and whatnot
    My kind of mood, will buy.

    Guitar tone seems like a step up from Heritage. On first listening to it, I'd say this song is more memorable than anything on Heritage, imho, but still pretty bland overall. Fred's solo is nice. You still have those meandering little chromatic-infused transitions Mike loves doing lately. Eh, might be a purchase, we'll see.

    After a couple more listens it's definitely growing on me. I could see this being a really fun song live.

    I've only listened to it once. It might grow more on me. I liked the middle part around the solo. Overall, somewhat bland. I do like that the guitar sound is heavier than on Heritage. I'll probably buy this album but I've accepted the fact that the Opeth I loved years ago simply doesn't exist anymore.

    Ghost of Perdition had repetition in a really nice setting...the current song just sounded lazy....not the same form of "opethish minimalism" on damnation

    Has the same stupid, unexpected transitions as Watershed and Heritage. Do not like. Nice melodies though. But this might be the first Opeth album I don't buy. :(
