    As I listen to still life, I notice I love the sound of the acoustic guitars, my dad says that it has too much reverb, but I don't give a fuck.
    The voice of mike on this album is really great too, it's very big.
    I love the drums sound on watershed for example, maybe because of axe's playing?
    What album do you think that has the better sound?

    I remember hearing Serenity Painted Death for the first time and I thought that Mike's clean voice sounded a lot like Jerry Cantrell's. I also thought there were at least 3 vocalists in the band... so yeah I love the sound of Mike's vocals on Still Life.

    Blackwater Park.
    Because it's the album that purely accidentally made me an Opeth fan.:kickass:
    And a Steve Wilson fan as well.

    They all have their advantages and disadvantages I think, but its leaning towards Watershed for me.

    Yeah it really depends on what your like. A raw tone like BWP or warmer such as GR.

    Sound wise, I pretty much like them all after MAYH..I find Orchid an MR a bit too tinny and MAYH too muddy. Great songs though!. Deliverance sounds a bit brittle to me, like in the first big drum fill on "Wreath", the drums sound a bit like "pit pat" if you know what I mean!.. Watershed sounds brilliant.

    Not Watershed. The growls are mixed too low if you ask me.

    I'd go with Deliverance and Damnation.

    LOL, I actually agree with your dad, I can't stand the sound of the acoustics on SL, but I love the sound of the acoustics on Orchid and MR.

    Slayer101, I've decided that your signature image is my favourite on this forum.

    BWP definitely, the aura is soo eerie throughout the entire album.

    especially the guitar sound.

    next i'd say Ghost Reveries, then Watershed.

    'My Arms, Your Hearse', because it's so suffocating and oppressive, but I also love 'Blackwater Park', for the reason that xGhOsT ReVeRiEsx stated. Very haunting atmosphere.

    It helps that it's from one of the best movies ever.

    But back on topic, I think my favorite is Ghost Reveries.

    I love the black & white soundscape Wilson created, I guess I've never heard something as cold and beautiful.

    I rather liked the sound production of "Lamentations". As far as studio sound, though, going to have to say BWP.
