    Apostle in Triumph, just listen to the last few notes, a perfect ending

    Isolation years isn't even a part of the whole occult concept within GR, I can't see how people then pick it as their favorite closer?

    Musically sounds like an extremely solid closer to the album to me. The cd is not really a concept record, but themes, and it fits well within the theme.

    Even though i love To Bid You Farewell so much, I'd have to say Blackwater Park. Its obviously a perfect closer.

    I wish i could say white cluster but i don't like the clean part at the end. (The part before that is one of my favorite opeth riffs by far).


    so BWP.

    The Apostle in Triumph, definitely.

    You think it's over, then there's one more short acoustic interlude, then "as the rain keeps fallin'..."

    Perfect, beautiful :).

    1- Blackwater Park.

    It's one of the most awesome songs ever, especially the second half (after the ever repeating acoustic part in the middle) is terrifying. The lyrics go very well with the riffs and the general super bleak feel of the song. It's one of the few Opeth songs which lyrics do something lyrically, for me anyways.

    Especially the "lepers coiled beneath the trees" part. Awesome.

    2 - White Cluster

    3 - Isolation Years

    1283812 - Weakness. WHY OPETH??? WHY NOT CLOSE THE ALBUM WITH WHAT YOU YOURSELF NAMED "ENDING CREDITS?"

    Yeah, I was listening that in car and my sister heard it and commented that what the hell. It isn't going anywhere. But she just doesn't understand music... no wait a minute. Yes she does. o_O


    It's kind of cool, a hidden track feel to it.
