    For now I can give that answer for Martin Lopez.

    I feel Deliverance is his best. There is something about the fills, the feel, the power. Every time I listen to that song, the drums easily bubble to the surface and it's what I concentrate on the most.

    I need to think about the other band members a little bit.

    Mendez - baying of the hounds, blackwater park, moonlapse vertigo, reverie/harlequin forest
    Lopez - deliverance and damnation albums (once again, too much to be specific), especially closure, by the pain I see in others

    Johan - To Bid You Farewell (I love the riffs in this)
    Anders - hmm, tough - I'd say Advent, Black rose immortal, requiem (obviously)

    Both guitarists: White Cluster (solos at the end)
    Lopez: Deliverance (there is no other option for this)
    Per: Ghost of Perdition (the keyboards aren't as out in the open as on other songs, but they really add to the song in a subtle way)
    Mendez: It would have to be something on Damnation
    Mike on vocals: Too hard to pick
    Johan: To Bid You Farewell
    Anders: no idea

    O.k. hard one, but I'll give it a try.

    Lopez - Deliverance. The ingenuity in the writing of this drum part alone is reason enough, and the execution even more so.

    Mendez - either Blackwater Park for the pop and slap parts near the end or The Drapery Falls for a wonderfully inserted bass line all the way through

    Wiberg - The Baying of the Hounds, no doubts here.

    Lindgren - In My Time of Need - the textures he created (with a little help from S. Wilson) are just plain trippy and beautiful

    Akerfeldt (Death vocals) - Demon of the Fall - so evil!!!
    (clean vocals) - Ghost of Perdition - listen to all intertwining melodies in there!
    (guitars) - all of the Still Life album (acoustic parts in Benighted are wonderful, and the originality of the songwriting in there has not been surpassed, in my humble opinion)

    Cheers!

    This is actually a good thread but it needs some genuine thought. I'll get back to you.

    The entire "Damnation" album for all band members. This album convinced me that Opeth were brilliant musicians, not just another crush your skull "Metal" band. All albums and musicianship are great, but, "Damnation is a sublime masterpiece IMO.
