    Leaving Damnation tracks off except if space provided.

    About 2 songs per each of the rest of their cds.

    Which songs would you choose? Has anyone done this? 160 minutes is alot but then again so many good long songs.

    I am doing this partly to have a cool travel cd but also to help turn others onto Opeth.

    I would be curious about what others would put on the cds.

    hmmm well
    Ghost Of Perdition
    Beneath The Mire
    To Rid The Disease
    Window Pane ( I Like Damnation. always room on my cd)
    Wreath
    Master's Apprentices

    White Cluster
    April Ethereal
    The Amen Corner

    Of the new Album i'd put Heir Apparent on ... because I have seen it live and haven't heard the album yet ... i'll wait till it comes out.

    So many great songs ... but Opeth openers on CDs are always great.

    Damn, this is tough.

    Why no Damnation?

    Anyway, ignoring that rule, this would be what I'd give to people wanting to hear some Opeth...

    1) Ghost of Perdition
    2) Bleak
    3) Harvest
    4) Deliverance
    5) Face of Melinda
    6) The Drapery Falls
    7) When
    8) The Leper Affinity
    9) A Fair Judgment
    10) To Rid The Disease
    11) Demon of the Fall
    12) Burden
    13) Windowpane
    14) Hessian Peel
    15) Isolation Years

    Actually I probably wouldn't make a compilation at all. I'd just lend them a copy of whatever CD I'd think they'd like the most based on their music taste in general.

    I have a feeling this is a wee bit over the 160 minutes though. Nice list though!

    I love Damnation don't get me wrong. I just think there are enough mellow portions within normal Opeth songs to cover that aspect of their amazing music. Plus, we are working within 2 80 minute cds in my case so time constraints. I am trying 2 songs per cd including the new one. Heck, I love Orchid but I might end up with only one song from it. I could easily pick 3 from some of the cds but trying to get to 2.


    I know the old, let them borrow a cd but I want to let someone hear a variety of their material not just one cd. This is also being used as travel music if I go on a road trip.

    This is the better version of the "best of" thread that was going around recently...

    I have actually done this already to try and get a friend into Opeth. A couple things, though: (1) I think I've broken some of tattoedsean666's rules, and (2) All flame-throwing aside, I didn't put anything on from Orchid or Morningrise because of the production (remember, this was solely to get some one into the band)...of course I constantly kick myself in the ass for not putting on TTIMR, TAIT, and TBYF.

    With that said, here it was...

    Disc 1
    The Moor
    Baying of the Hounds
    Still Day
    TNATSW (live)
    Harvest
    BWP
    Fair Judgement
    Ending Credits

    Disc 2
    Intro > When (live)
    Windowpane
    Deliverance
    Harlequin Forest
    Credence
    Bleak
    Moonlapse Vertigo
    Remember Tomorrow

    There you have it. And, again, all flamethrowing aside, I had to put Remember Tomorrow on there (old school Maiden fans and all). But I don't have to defend myself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:heh:

    You see people, the trick is to actually get everything on TWO(2) compact discs, which are limited to 80 minutes (actually 79 and some change).

    Like this:

    D1:
    In the Mist She Was Standing - 14:09
    Harvest - 6:01
    *Lotus Eater - 8:50
    Moonlapse Vertigo - 9:00
    Serenity Painted Death - 9:13
    Harlequin Forest (w/ Reverie intro) - 12:45
    Hours of Wealth - 5:20
    Blackwater Park - 12:08
    TOTAL: 77:26

    D2:
    Leper Affinity - 10:23
    Godhead's Lament - 9:47
    Closure (live version) - ~8:00
    Drapery Falls - 10:54
    Hope Leaves - 4:30
    When - 9:14
    Madrigal - 1:26
    Amen Corner - 8:43
    *Coil - 3:10
    Deliverance - 13:36
    TOTAL: 79:43

    Use some audio editing software, a clip here, a fade there, everything will flow nicely. In fact... I'm going to do this tonight.

    *-these songs may or may not actually exist and the track lengths may or may not have been completely fabricated

    To be honest, what I'd put on the CD wouldn't reflect what I like best but rather the songs I haven't given enough attention to while I've overplayed or been over-attentive to others.

    So..

    Silhouette
    The Apostle in Triumph
    Nectar
    The Amen Corner
    Karma
    Benighted
    Dirge for November
    Wreath
    A Fair Judgement
    To Rid the Disease
    Weakness
    Beneath the Mire
    Harlequin Forest
    Isolation Years

    + Watershed which I haven't experienced yet :headbang:
