    We are in accord, Orchid and Morningrise shape the first and elemental matrix of Opeth's spirit, in my opinion of listener.

    Before a long time, The Twilight Is Robe was my hymn, frankly, with the brilliant Black Rose Immortal (actually, the last is my chosen song from their discography).

    Edit : My last chosen song, I have never said anything else about the album's order. So, maybe it is my manner to write which is not clear.

    Orchid is Opeth's first album.

    I know what you mean, but imagine if they still did the style they were doing on the first 2-3 records...wouldn´t be that great either, would it?
    The thing is, if a song like "Burden" had been released in the 70s or 80s, it would be considered as one of those great big rock ballads which everybody knows. So I think that WHEN an album is released really affects your view on it. Same with Orchid.

    The production suits the music imo. If either Morningrise or Orchid had that lush, thick sounding production of Deliverance or BWP then it'd just sound damn wrong. There's something really special about listening to Opeth in their rawest and most unadulterated form... that's one of the reasons why I feel their first 2 albums are so special.

    Orchid is great, especially the guitar work on IMSWS, FOO and TTIMR!

    I laugh out loud every time someone says the Opeth's first two albums have bad production.

    Have you ever listened to black metal? Ever? Go listen to Nattens Madrigal by Ulver (which is an incredible album btw) then listen to Orchid / Morningrise
    Then tell me what you think.

    I like Orchid and Morningrise, they're nowhere near "bad" in any way, but they have yet to blow me away like the other seven albums. Orchid is my least favorite but is still quite good. The acoustic section around the 7 minute mark or so (or maybe it was 6, whichever section is the acoustic part that's one acoustic passage after the main 2 minute long one) in TTIMR is just amazing.
