    What is your favorite part and what do you think about the "acoustic" part (5:48-6:22).

    The Scott Walker riff annihilates.

    It's already one of my favourite Opeth songs EVER. Wonderful song.

    My favorite Watershed song so far.
    I love the riff that comes in at 0:50, also the part where that riff fades in at 1:45 with the 2nd guitar over it, just genius. :saint:
    The part that starts at 5:10 reminds me of the "quiet" part of Blackwater Park, I like this, especially when the solo comes in...
    Well actually it's quite hard to find a part of the song that I dislike so I'd better stop right there.

    by the way, there are 2 parts in this song that are totally taken from "the drift" (with a few variances).


    Well done Opeth!!!!

    why are people praising opeth for stealing riffs? I mean, I love the song, but that just seems a little fanboyish
