It's my favorite part on the entire Watershed album, I'm serious...
the funk part is awesome. I love funk and jazz music aswell, and they pulled it off perfectly. Everything about it is great with the clavinet style keyboards, clean wah-wah'd guitar, popping bassline and grooving drum beat. They should do a album of nothing but funk (like with the only mellow damnation) just as an experimental album. I think it would be awesome.
I love some New England cities like Boston, but New York smells like feces. I don't trust anyone who's become so desensitized to the stench to properly use their other senses.
You're quite the maverick aren't you?
i just don't like watershed. if that's what it takes to be a maverick, then hell yes i am.
I wait with bated breath for that part to come up. It's when i show the finger to all those tr00 metalheads who think that anything other than metal is disco. I love that bit.
PS: well since opeth did it, some of those tr00 metalheads dig it. Lame fuckers.
I love it. At first, i was like "wtf" when i heard it on an Opeth album, but its definentally awesome.
New York fuckin' Times fuckin' reporter is a fuckin' cunt don't you know? Has he/she ever listen Opeth before? If he/she did, then he/she is talking bullshit! If he/she didn't listen ever, then someone should give an Opeth album to him/her. Also the funk passage in The Lotus Eater not as "ludicrous." Mikael is a musical genious!
I wish the funk bit was even longer.
BOYCOTT THE TIMES!
CALL THE TIMES AND PLAY THEM WHEN OVER THE PHONE!!!!!!!!1
At first i liked it but now it strikes me as totally silly. Also, Lotus Eater is a pretty song...and yes, i really don't like Watershed, sue me.
haahahaha awesome idea
I love it. I like all sorts of music from classical to pop, jazz, blues, funk, prog, punk, funk, hip-hop, metal, dance etc etc...the more Opeth explore other types of music within their metal framework, the more interesting they become to me..I like to be surprised by music...I doubt if anyone thought "I know, there's a funky keyboard riff coming up" when Lotus Eater started...
I only listen to funk now as a result of that section.
I found the article "...Some of the band’s new songs from the album “Watershed” — like “The Lotus Eater” — compact the folk-rock and death metal together more closely. That song began with a medieval melody and ended with a recording of laughing voices at a party; along the way it cruised through death metal’s rapid-fire blast-beats and a ludicrous funk passage..."

Yes, thank God I listened to Opeth because if not I never would have found George Clinton!!
