    To all who submitted their lists, thanks! I wanted 100, but then I didn't even get 50...38 is what I got so I guess that was enough to warrant a list (especially since it was a bitch to compile.)

    THE ULTIMATE OPETH LIST - hardly definitive, but based on the 38 lists that were supplied these are the results I have received. Some surprises and shockers, while most seem to be where we have seen them before (give or take.) In the end, all for fun.

    We begin at the bottom.......

    Cool. I think this was a pretty good idea. We should do one every month.

    Awesome, that came out pretty well. I think Updating is pretty good, maybe every once in a while we can get everyone to repost their favourites (because they keep changing.) Guaranteed, we'll never get the same list twice.

    I admit, I was expecting one of the other top 10 to be no.1 instead of GoP. How many people actually put it as their number one?

    I did, or.. well.. i put it in my top3 if i dont remember wrong.
    And I'm so f**king glad to see that dotf didn't win, as i think its so overrated.
    Its a killer live track, but overrated nevertheless.

    Blackwater Park at #10?? it deserves so much more..

    I think the top 15 would make a KILLER show by any fan's standards.

    GoP? Strange. I'd expect When and The Moor taking the first two spots.

    Wow, admirable job man!! +Rep goes to you.

    And yes, Ghost of Perdition as #1 is just strange to me. It's a fantastic song, but the best Opeth has to offer? I think not. Oh well...

    Great job you've done.
    But you made a mistake here. Ghost of Perdition was included in 35/38 lists, not 34/38. Only foodforthegods, me and frycus spoiled the unity of the community by leaving the song out of our lists.
    But it's a good song, and it was very close for making it to my list. Just not this time.

    Had I given myself time, maybe listened to all 8 or so hours of music a couple of times over, my list would be different.
