    still life is good but it's nothing compared to GR (except for White Cluster and Moonlapse Vertigo).
    but anyway, your opinion sucks because your opinion is that opeth are lazy now and that sucks, so you suck and i dno't want to talk to you anymore

    I think to say that Opeth are lazy is garbage. Are you in a band? If not, then try doing it and being as good as Ghost Reveries. If so, then was your last effort as good as Ghost Reveries?




    Didn't think so :)

    True!!! the day you write a song like ghost of perdition you come here and say they are lazy... you might say it's not a good song and you don0't like it... but that's very different from calling opeth "lazy"....

    I don't think so, I don't think the band couldve tossed off a song like GoP in their sleep. Whether you like the album or not you have to admit they put a lot of work into it, and weren't just running thru the motions.

    Good that you picked up on that Moonlapse, I failed to. the only thing that Opeth owes anyone is to stay true to what they believe in. I believe that they are 100% behind Ghost Reveries, and therefore they can't really be criticised for making it. If I felt like they had written those songs solely to attract new fans or keep RR happy, then I might have had a problem. But even then, it's their choice, and to make out like they owe it to us to be different is just... dumb.

    i think its a fucking great album...the clean section in the baying of the hounds is fucking sweet man. i love it. it sounds so innocent...the entire album has a new vibe, or key stone, if you will.

    I don't like Ghost Reveries as much as the other albums because, to me, it feels like there's way less emphasis on the instruments compared to their previous albums. Of course, I love Mike's voice so GR is still a "good" album, it just could've been better.

    But it's pretty hard to top "The Baying of the Hounds" and "Reverie", and as someone said in this topic, "The Grand Conjuration" is eargasmic when played live.

    Yeah, you're totally right. 'Innocent' is a great way to describe that part. It's so sparse, yet somewhat upbeat sounding due to Mike's major-key vocal melody.

    Betrays was probably the wrong word - the way you've understood the statement was not what I meant. Replace it with "lost the interest of". True, the band owes us nothing - but to be honest I couldn't care less about the band. Its the music they create that i'm interested in. But like most metal bands they seem to be content with copying themselves. I'm not saying GR is shit - its a masterpiece if it was by any other band. i'm saying that they haven't progreesed, that GR doesn't have anything past albums (either by themselves or other bands) don't have. No I am not in a band but if I was, and if I had a fantastic discography like Opeth's, I wouldn't be happy putting out something like GR. Opeth have said themselves that they write songs in a rush in the studio. Sounds pretty lazy to me. Disagree? Then address my statements themselves instead of making silly comments like 'i pwnz y0u noob'.

    Except that they didn't write the songs in a rush in the studio with this album. Idiot. Please get your facts straight before you argue your view.
