I voted Still Life, but Morningrise would be as appropriate.
Has to be GR, although not enough time has passed to look back in hindsight but its def the album that isnt as good as the others imo, second morning rise & might i add Black rose immortal is sooooooo overated, & demon of the fall
I think it´s because GR still feels like "the new album". I had the same thing with both BWP and D/D when they were new. Most often you get to really appreciate the albums when they´re not the newest ones any longer.
pretty good spread of opinions here.
Seems everyone puts it on a pedestal and I don't agree.
GR is the only opeth album i didn't like when i first heard it, and i'm still not impressed with it. in any case, most people claim it as one of opeth's best which is ridiculous imo.
I'd also say GR is the most overrated one, although I still like it.
yeah. It's a close second.
gr got hyped too much. thats the only reason i was disappointed with it. but putting it beside other opeth releases i think it stands fairly well.
I'm not. I don't think GR is overrated. People always bash it and practically no-one likes The Grand Conjuration, while everyone raves on about Deliverance, the end of deliverance, as well BWP. How can Morningrise be overrated? Barely anyone talks about it, save for criticising TNATSW because Mike said he doesnt' like it.
I'm one of those people
Fair enough but i dont think Damnation should be an option as far as overrated albums go, im sure i'll gET slated but its completley different from all other albums hence its excistence. But as i said if you think its overated as far as the how good other people generally rate the tracks fair enough, but it simply cant be put side by side in a coMparison to all other albums?
fck it, im opening up a hendrix thread
some good points here.
how can you say that barely anyone talks about morningrise??? it still is the favourite album for a lot of people and this comes up very often on this forum.
Morningrise could have been better if the songs would have been a bit shorter... the riffs are a bit boring to some extent. And the production sucks.
I love MR but it is definitely a fine candidate for overrated if you don't like it so much. It's a HUGE fan favorite as you can tell just from spending time on this here board.
orchid and morningrise...kick-ass neoclassic, folkloric, maiden-style riffs and chord progressions. amazing vocal melodies. but then again it's an album composed of songs with no apparent structure...riff after riff. stop and start again. thats what bothers me about it but apparently it didnt 6-7 years ago
