    thats right
    I love the first 3 Opeth albums, great music but the albums they did after My arms your hearse...well the magic is gone, I bought still life(nice but not great) and blackwater park(didnt touched my anymore) and the others never heard them...
    I just listen to the first 3 ones.

    another great band disappears in their own shadow...

    I somehow don't know where to put Opeth... well I had, no... so there was someone I knew who was an Opeth fanatic and listened to it quite often. I didn't say it is bad but nor did I find it 'that' great. At times it was great though, but it could not touch me the way others could, and after listening to it every now and than I found it a bit 'embarrassing'. only after some pause in listening to them could I find it o.k. again.
    My arms your hearse and Morningrise I liked much (say in past because I didn't hear them since that). Still life was their first album I heard but was a bit messy and not just for the first listening... and somehow the same goes for Blackwater park, good and not that good songs too (but maybe I have to listen to it more).
    to say I like Damnation very much, but it's just something totally different, and when I listen to it I just don't find it Opeth.

    Damn, Finius says No chance pal!!!! :(

    Why is everybody dissing basket weavers, my brother did it for four years and he could make some pretty willow baskets. It's a shame people diss something that's nice.

    As for Opeth, I know the last three and love Damnation, and I like Deliverance.

    Damnation is alright and MAYH has its moments but noting to really merit all that hype, Deliverance and BP bore me to an extreme, can't even stand listening to them.

    neurosis is much more angrier.

    isis is more, well, freestyle, if you like.

    i don't know if you play some instrument, but, boy, if i could have a band with bunch of guys playing such as those..

    oceanic didn't work at me either at the beginning, but l8r worked when i was tired with headphones around 4am

    ("and eversince i have no sleep...") - hahaha what a lame conclusion :tickled:

    cheerz

    Since nobody's mentioned it I'd suggest Sigur Ros - ( )

    It isn't completely doomy but has a wonderful atmosphere....

    Also I didn't see in the Woods mentioned, but I'd recommend giving Omnio a shot. Took me a long time to get into properly but particularly the title (three) tracks are fantastic.

    My two cents worth.

    You might as well perceive the separate In the Woods thread for the band nobody mentioned.

    Yeah I saw it as a separate thread, but nobody had actually recommended it in this one. *shrug*

    This is gonna sound like a joke, but I'm serious, that one dude from Aqua Søren Raasted has a new project called Lazyboy and it's at least interesting. Sort of a poppy GYBE. A bunch of spoken statements to poppy synths, some statements are crap jokes, other semi-deep statements, some odd facts, some bollocks. None of them in any real order. One song with philosophising about a plant (cannabis) being illegal while we're spending millions making sure 80-year-olds can get a boner (viagra), about the obeisity epidemic and so on. Sort of nice at times, at least interesting. I might even end up buying a copy of this album.

    Some examples of lyrics (not sure they're correct down to the word):

    Someone said to Voltaire: "Life is hard", Voltaire replied "compared to what?"

    The biggest lie you can tell yourself is. "When I get what I want, I'll be happy"

    Pierced men are better prepared for marriage, they're used to pain and have bought jewelry.

    Women who read romance novels have 67 % more sex.

    22´% of the time a pizza will arrive quicker than an ambulance in the UK.

    A japanese trawler once sank because a Russian cargo plane dropped a cow frm 10 kms height.
