5 stars Still life is, as regards the story, Opeth's more lyrically complex album. The story of this Rock Opera is about a man who has not the same faith as the rest of his village, so he is beaten up and cast away from his village. When he returns, after several years, he wants to get his babe back. He finds out that she's become a nun in Godhead's Lament. But he still wants her back. Knowing that if he is seen he will be killed, he meets Melinda, his love. The other day he sees that Melinda was murdered, all because of him. Then he is captured and then hung. Just before he is hung he sees Melinda waiting for him to join her in death. This album contains a very jazzy influence in songs such as Benighted and face of Melinda, and the most heavy death metal parts in songs such as The moor and Godhead's Lament. In my opinion Moonlapse vertigo is the best song in the album, with it's crashing riffs and complex structure. This is an Opeth must have. A prog masterpiece. Proggers, I salute you.
