    I thought GR was amazing. If Watershed can somehow outdo Reveries... wow. Just wow.

    ^ Not balanced. The pace is all over the place, as expected with previous Opeth recordings.

    Question, Victoria. As far as playability goes, do you think these songs will be doable for live performances? Obviously the production in songs like BTPISIO make them difficult to reproduce at a concert. Live Opeth has a reputation of living up to and out-performing recorded Opeth. Do things like the oboe feature stand in the way of making this just as badass live (if not more badass)?

    I would think Per would be able to 'fake' the oboe parts on the synth- without much trouble.
    Victorialand, who are you and what do you do if you don't mind me asking?

    I wouldn't say that... BWP and GR were mid-paced, while Deliverance and Orchid were very varied. I'm hoping for some fast and furious bits like in Wreath or April Ethereal.

    Victoria, I know it hasn't had enough time to grow on you but roughly how would you rank it compared to other albums? Please! That's the most important question I know you don't wanna answer it.

    A 'peel' is also a kind of tower/keep.
    So 'Hessian Peel' could be interpreted along the lines of 'German Tower' (well, not exactly, but you see what I mean).
