Wow, amazing band. I have watershed, what else should I get?
My suggestion is to get into the more accessible stuff first. I'd listen to all the albums, of course, but start with Ghost Reveries and work your way backward. If you begin with Orchid, you might get frightened away!
go from first album to most recent. always and forever.
yes, and btw Disposable Heroes rules.
yeah i just got into opeth like 2 weeks ago. I heard watershed when it leaked then I bought it when it came with Ghost Reveries. Then I got Blackwater Park and Deliverance. Today i just got damnation but i didnt listen to that yet but I know what i am going to expect... because its more prog rock. Watershed and Ghost Reveries grew on me pretty quickly but Blackwater Park took a little while and Deliverance still didnt click that much. Right now I probably like Blackwater Park the best. Now im looking forward to hearing Still Life because a lot of fans like that one the best.
So yeah get Ghost Reveries next and just go backwards. Its always good start with the more modern stuff.
I think all new opeth fans should start a thread on the forum announcing themselves. The forum would be so much better if that happened
Start one. Make it a "sticky" or whatever. If you lead maybe they'll follow.
Welcome to Opethland.... you will notice that Opeth will dominate your playlists from now on. Enjoy Damnation through a good set of headphones, and the same with deliverance.
Ive liked Opeth since 04 but have really loved them since about a month ago
If you want an album that's going to crush you and leave you drained, go
with Deliverance. But to play it safe I'd go with Blackwater Park or Ghost
Reveries. The 'fan-favourites'.
All there albums have different things to like in my opinion. I think many people would agree with Blackwater Park of Still Life being a good direction to go in. Personally I think listening to Ghost Reveries before the others might give a bit of a skewed perspective of the band.
