    the waltz section is the best bit on deliverance imo, great singing. the rest of the album is very poor by opeth standards though.

    Deliverance is great, it just needs to have a certain mood to get the most out of it. I personally love listening to it when being in a kind of "stfu" mood... then this dark and brutal atmosphere works great. I recommend everybody to listen to Damnation right after that :)

    Perfect example being at about 7:46 of Master's Apprentices. Love how it flows from serene to brutal completely without warning! :kickass:

    Ok, bad choise of wording. What I meant to say was that I love how the heavy part comes in without sounding forced or out of place.

    I listened this record today, it slays. Wreath is a great opener (may be my favourite track of the record), it's so bleak, cold, droney. Great drumming and basslines, and of course two truly awesome solos. The rest of the album consists of solid songs I think, it's only on BTPISO that the quality drops somewhat. On the other hand, the song is very experimental, with the 'underwater' death vocals over clean guitar parts and some other crazy riffs which make the song pretty interesting nonetheless. The guitar break at 8:08 is phenomenal, and the part after that ("Silently, whispering...") is awesome.

    i love deliverance. it could be the most cohesive(doesn't make it the best) album by opeth. Each song works together and the sound fits the songs.

    it also has some of opeth's best songs: Wreath, deliverance, Master's apprentices, and a fair judgement. The only weak point is BTPISIO, and that's a pretty good song.

    a fair judgement has grown on me a lot lately, and it's now it's one of my favourite opeth songs, especially the solo at the end. fucking immense

    I'm just going to be brief here. I think Deliverance was an awesome record, but By the Pain I See in Others is by far the worst Opeth song, sounds like carnival music halfway through. Only Opeth song I dislike...although the drums are fucking awesome on that track.

    also, the way mikael sings "nothing ever changes" is magical. I can't help but sing along.

    Yes, I fucking love that part. Love it when Micke sings with his "dark voice" kinda like the "but you were beyond all help..." part in Advent :)

    Idgi, I remember almost everyone saying Deliverance is below par, now tons of people are saying it's an amazing record. Make up your minds...

    Every Opeth album is good, it's just that some people think some are better than others. "Below par" when it comes to Opeth is still above the mainstream.
