5 stars This is one of the greatest albums ever made. In my opinion. It's one of my favorite albums of all time, and I can listen to it in whatever mood I am in and in any place. Even IGN ranked it 18 on its greatest metal albums of all time. While there is lots of growling vocals, there is also lots of clean vocals too. The guitars are fluid and the riffs are never boring. The drums have lots of good double bass. While all the songs are good, the best are, mostly due to their amazing riffs and length, The Leper Affinity, The Drapery Falls (my favorite track), and the closing epic Blackwater Park. The lyrics on the album are similar to all Opeth lyrics, yet they seem to have some kind of story that ties in with the album cover. This album is essential to any Opeth fan, and to any progressive metal fan. This was the first Opeth album I heard in full, and it will always be my favorite.
