5 stars After listening to this album back to back with still life in an attempt to understand the higher rating of that previous effort, i fail. i fail to see, in every respect, how this disc is lacking in anyway to Still Life. To me, everything sounds better, richer, fuller. The heavy moments are heavier, the softer moments more beautiful, Mikaels vocals more focused and sharp. this is the disc where Opeth finaly nails it. they created the album they had been trying to make for nearly a decade. its hard to point out a weak spot in an album this tight, let alone highlights but i cannot write this review and not mention The Drapery Falls which is my favorite Opeth song and among the most beautiful songs i have ever heard. a six star song on a five star album. I purchased this not expecting to enjoy it and not only was I deeply rewarded, but i was introduced to an entirely new genre of music i wouldnt have given a chance before. IMO the best Opeth CD and a hands down masterpiece.
