am I disapointed with it?
wow definitely bringing some suspense to the table.
that was an epic post, phew
Just had to quote
Great post...and I agree
Always the abscence of something is the presence of something else... it's not all about the same feeling, cause it's evolution as you said before... besides, talking about metaphysical subjects, i've always had the feeling that there was some sort of almost mysthical atmosphere in Orchid (particularly due to the lyrics... "absolute black metal nonsense" according to mike)
To be honest I was disappointed with Porcelain Heart (possibly my least favorite Opeth song after Eternal Soul Torture) but even though I haven't heard the whole cd the other songs I have heard aren't disappointing. For anyone who doesn't want to give this album a chance I can't advise you enough to keep listening. Opeth's music is pretty complex and can take a while to digest. I used to not like Deliverance at all for the first 15 or so listens but now I can't get enough of it. Ghost Reveries took several listens as well to click but once it clicks you'll fully appreciate the music
I am disappointed on this:

To the OP: Well, to be honest, I am a tad disappointed in a certain respect. When GR came out it blew me away completely. Now, Watershed is a great album, but it does not blow me away like GR did. Other than that ... Opeth still kicks ass!
Well, that's a relief. Any album that blows you away first time isn't going to last very long. Like GR.
i strongly believe that what we've got on this album is long music, not complicated music. there are a few references to other bits in the song here and there, but it ain't mahler. that's why i think abandoning the heavy aspect is a mistake. what's left isn't exactly brainbending, there are just a lot of sections to get used to.
(still listening, still hoping for a connection with the disc)
lol i was drinking a cup of coffee when the *liquid is in your throat* line came up there. has mike developed psychic powers now he's sorta mastered the whole *music* thing?
I really love Watershed, to be honest I didn't expect it that much, after the relative GR disapointment (looks more like a sort of "best-of" with new songs, nothing new in this album)...
Watershed gives Opeth music a new taste, which I love.
I don't thing it's a question of new fan or old ones, it's just we have to understand Opeth is evoluting, and it obviously can't please everyone.
I'm glad of it, I don't want my favorite band to turn into bands like Dark Tranquillity, who keep making same albums since Damage Done.
Oh no... recorded with the stunning authenticity of a 8mb SoundFont... he even calls himself "String Tribute Players"
I knew that people will show some respect to Watershed after a few listens... all of this shit thrown upon it will slowly fade away.
Here's a review by someone from a prog rock site who didn't like the album, it's not me, so don't kill me!
I'm not disappointed at all. I think their " new direction" is very interesting, and I've been listening to them since '99/'00. Plus, to the thread starter, where did you get the information that all they'll play on Watershed tour is Watershed songs? With Opeth anything is possible. Their next album could very well be a newer direction from their current new direction. I guess it's all in the ear of the beholder.
Wow, that review made me sick. If being into progressive music means you have to come off as a pretentious ass hole who uses Nickelback as a reference point for just about everything, then count me out.
That review sounded like Nickelback lyrics being written by a former member of Nickelback and it continued (I won't say progressed as I don't want to confuse anyone) for far too long, far beyond the point where most Nickelback songs call it quits. To each his own and all but Nickelfuck that guy.
Wow, I think that guy's been listening to too much Nickelback! Plus, from that review (although I just skimmed through it), he seems to not really listen to or know much at all about Opeth. Plain and simple, a blatantly unhelpful review. He should've just walked away. That review was utterly useless!
Edit: Prog Archives is actually a great website, by the way, but Nickeldick can go fuck himself!
