5 stars I wonder if it is possible that some Opeth ''fans'' find the Watershed a fair album. I wonder if it is possible that some Opeth ''fans'' were expecting something much better than Watershed. I wonder if it is possible that Watershed has 3.95 as a rating after 104 rating reports.

Watershed is a masterpiece of Progressive Metal. Nothing less, nothing more. Starting with an acoustic song, reminding the Damnation days. Continuing with tracks that manage to leave everyone surprised. Tracks that make you wonder: ''This man, Michael Akerfeldt, is such a genius. He is still composing extreme, difficult, progressive music with such an easiness!! He is inexaustible.!!''

Anyone can hear that the 70's influences make part of this masterpiece. Influences from Groups such as Camel and King Crimson appear in many parts. The voice of Michael is so better, so mature, so perfect than each past album of Opeth. Mendez is always there, infallible and awesome. Per's keyboards are so marvellous and take more place respect to the Ghost Perdiction album. Martin Axenrot approves that he is the next drummer for Opeth. His playing is perfect. Fredrik follows, with his charateristic wonderful playing.

Opeth are still ALIVE!! Michael, after the leave of two basic members, manages to continue to compose awesome music. OPETH are still kings...!! Due to the group difficulties, after the leave of Peter and Martin, everything seemed impossible and bad. For that Watershed deserves a 5 star rating!!!
