    which guitar tone do you prefer from all of opeth's albums....in three different categories...cleans, distorted, and acoustic

    mine would be....cleans - damnation
    distorted - Still Life
    acoustic - bwp

    Clean Electrics and Acoustic - Damnation
    Distorted - Orchid (This is of course negating the production, which didn't convey the tone very well. I just hate the overly compressed, weak distortion sounds on the newer albums).

    Clean - MAYH (that fender+vox just rapes everything beyond all....)
    acoustic - Orchid (dont count all the fret buzz hehe)
    distorted - Deliverance (evilest tone i have ever heard.. especially coming from a mesa)

    the vox (AC-30 i'm guessing) does produce a lovely and sparkling sound...and the Laney VC-30 is supposed to be kind of a copy...but, i love the full and warm cleans on damnation...then again, that is all based on preference....i prefer full and warm over sparkly and bright.

    Yea it really depends on the guitar used and production.. seeing as fenders and prs are totally different obviously, and the production on mayh was decent. Damnation was obviously perfect compared to MAYH's production, so yea. The clean tone on damnation is nice, but in MAYH its like the clean just creates the atmosphere and adds to the music where as in damnation its the main rythym/lead tone. Dont get me wrong, damnation was the second choice.. very close.

    Cleans-MAYH
    Acoustic-MAYH
    Distorted-MAYH

    Guess which Opeth album is my favorite...

    I just really like all of the guitar and vocal production on that album, because I feel that they found the perfect compromise between shitty production for atmosphere, and being clean enough to enjoy the arrangements. I just love the clean tone of that old strat, like at the intro of When, and the guitars were very agressive, yet clear enough to appreciate the riffs, and just listen to the acoustic tone in The Amen Corner, it's a great mid-range acoustic tone, perfect for that album.

    Im sorry, but Still Life and Orchid/Morningrise have totally different guitar tones in all categories...this thread is about which you like the most, if it was just which do you like I would have said all albums for all guitar tones, because I do like them all.

    I am aware that ''Orchid'', ''Morning Rise'' and ''Still Life'' all have completely different guitar tones. I am sorry if I am not able to select just a single ''Opeth'' album, That would be by far way to difficult for me to do in my opinion.
