    Interesting. I never knew Mister Akerfeldt was the rhythm guitar player.

    I really like the way they word their reviews. Makes you feel like it's something to ponder over at dinner while eating mom's famous caramel cakes.

    I think it's a pretty accurate review.

    Largely accurate. The only thing that's really off, I think, is the expectation that Opeth ought to be engaged in some sort of "stage antics". They're not that kind of band. And that's okay. To equate theirs with the "performance" put on my HOF...I'll take Opeth's stillness over HOF swagger any day.

    It is noteworthy that the boys keep getting articles in the New York Times. His criticisms (lack of improv, Mike's cockiness) may be ones we've all thought about, but dismissed as minor. The dull comment, though, I have to disagree with, but that's because I hang on every note.

    The comment about Axe drumming soft, or being low in the mix couldn't be further from the truth... At least from where I was sitting.
