    Demon Of The Fall. It's actually one of my least favorite songs on MAYH.

    I'd have to go with Demon Of The Fall also.I also find Black Rose Immortal Rated and off Watershed I think The Lotus Eater does get a bit tiresome after a while so isn't as good as some make out,definately nowhere near the best track of the album.

    Demon of the Fall for me too. That whole album is so overrated, at least by Mikael. He considers it their best, I don't understand why. Maybe by now he has changed his mind.

    Because you listened it too much. The first 100 times, it's one of the best song. :). And.. god.. Demon of the Fall isn't overrated.. it is justified mostly because it seems to be the best song of that album.

    lol MAYH is ABSOLUTELY one of the better opeth albums. in fact, if you don't think that the mayh/sl/bwp trio are the 3 best opeth albums, your taste is awful

    Tastes.

    By the way, "My Arms, Your Hearse" (fucking abreviations) is great.

    Godhead's Lament. Prior to joining this forum I had no idea it was considered by many to be the best Opeth song.

    The Moor.

    I love Still Life, but people seem to praise this song and I don't understand why. A lot of it is filler to me.

    By the way, I think MAYH is Opeth's weakest album.

    "Drapery Falls" and "Demon of the Fall" tied for me. In my opinion, any other song of the "My Arms, Your Hearse" album (except covers) is just better than Demon of the Fall. Just get it out of the setlist please.

    Among the superfandom like us it's always going to be the Drapery Falls and Demon and stuff like that. But the OBJECTIVELY most overrated song is Porcelain Heart. It's the most requested on radio and in the mainstream in general. It's a fine song, but it's a joke next to other 10 minute epics.

    Hmmm, Always thought BRI was a poor song in comparison to most of Opeth's creations. People always put Orchid and Morningrise up on a pedestal, and I love them too, but Opeth became so much more after those albums.

    Whats with all the Deliverance hate? Musically its fantastic, some awesome riffs, some great lyrics and vocals - and it really flows as a song. Not to mention Lopez kicking ass in the outro...

    Porcelain Heart was meant to be a radio hit or something, anyway.

    Wow. I hate those of your kind, showing other's mistakes in their sentences. That's just ridiculous and pointless. I knew how to write it, I just wrote it down without taking care, but the point is that you understood what I meant to say anyway. And yes, I'm French and somehow more apt to make these kind of mistakes.

    Yes, but it's often about personnal experiences. I remember playing Demon of the Fall with my old band and that's why it's my favourite song. But songs like April Ethereal are just as good, but Madrigal isn't, right? Currently I don't particularly like The Drapery Falls or Demon of the Fall but it's just because I listened to them too often and got tired. But in my memory, these names sound like "great songs" even if its not the case actually.
