    I prefere my arms, your hearse. This album is more bleak and death/black influenced imo.

    oh and first time I heard someone mention MAYH I heard "My arms your ass" and I was wondering what that album was really about.

    NO WAY, DELIVERANCE 100%!!!11111shift+1!1eleven

    Although I'm probably the only person to think Deliverance is their best album.

    In my opinion, Opeth has gone through three major periods:

    1. Orchid/Morningrise
    2. My Arms Your Hearse
    3. Still Life through present day

    As brilliant as the first two albums are, they really changed their sound with MAYH - it's darker, denser, more mysterious and more brutal. And after boldly and successfully withstanding criticisms for an all-acoustic track in To Bid You Farewell, MAYH is even more confident in its dynamics. It's also a concept album, and a very captivating and cohesive one, at that.

    Still Life is an amazing album too - they all are - but I'd say there's a bigger shift in execution and writing between MAYH and SL vs SL and its subsequent albums (with Damnation being an obvious outlier).

    So that's my .02.
    And if I had extra $$, I'd start a foundation for fans looking to hear the rest of Opeth's discography - 'cause you really shouldn't buy anything else until you've heard it all. (and no downloading either!!!)

    Ultimate Metal hosts messageboards for a wide variety of bands, belive it or not, some people register to discuss these without having heard Opeth!
