2 stars Ok, I love Death Metal, specially Opeth, but prog? This album is just typical melodic Sweden Death Metal, with a few accoustic guitars, clear voices and some keyboards, but that is not enough to be prog. More yet when they repeat the same riff one, two and three times, and again, and again. And most of the accoustic passages sounds almost identical. Here I don't listen nothing new, here you can't find time progressions, and the only experimentation is add accoustic guitars to the classical melodic Death, and those accoustic moments sounds the same as Pink Floyd did in the 70's.

If you're looking for good prog metal, then listen to Symphony X or Shadow Gallery, and if you want extreme prog metal, then listen to Cynic, Meshuggah, Arcturus and even Nile sounds more prog than Opeth.

As a Death Metal, i give Blackwater Park 4 stars. As Progressive , just 2 stars.
