    They have not one bad album, not one bad song... really solid discography! I do have more fav. bands like porcupine tree, led zeppelin, Katatonia, Nightingale, arcturus, death, nile, Ulver, borknagar. Even though I like these bands as much as opeth or even more at times, none of this bands have such solid discography, in all these bands I can think of a song that I don't like or even an album... blah blah My time to be "fanboy" :loco:

    I think Katatonia's pretty damn solid.

    I agree with you, although some songs are far better than others even on Opeth albums.

    True, very solid cds all around with the exception of Damnation and Deliverance only because they seem almost moodless... :-/

    I wish I could be "cool" and "hip" and jump on the D&D bashing bandwagon.. but unfortunately I like those albums just as much as I like the prior ones.. :)

    My thing about Opeth, that makes them so good to my ears, is the way my stomach turns around each time I ear their powerfull songs. They rank along classic bands, by the way they put so much emotions in every one of their compositions.

    And of course... they are badass

    Yeah. Some of their songs are just a *bit* bland, but you know... what can you do? The only thing I think that flaws Opeth is that their first three albums aren't produced as well as their most recent four. =\

    They're pretty consistent, yeah. I can't point to any song that I'd call bad or filler or whatever. But I guess that's true for a lot of bands like this that make songs with a lot of content and variation. And where a song isn't just a vehicle for the lyrics, or based around a single riff.

    There are many Opeth songs I don't like, hell, BWP only had one song I liked on it.

    Sorry, just had to be different :p :p :p

    Although I don't bash either album, I think Deliverance and Damnation aren't as good as the previous 5 albums. There are moments of genius on both albums, this is true, but I don't rate D & D as highly as the first 5.
