A Mind Beside Itself
5 stars Fourth opeth's studio work based on a love and tragedy medieval history, one of the best progressive death metal albums ever. Its a transition album between My Arms, Your Hearse and Blackwaterpark but for me the best in the opeth's discography. The album start with The Moor that it's hard and beautiful the combination of Mikael voices with the guitar by a complex but amazing way. Godhead's Lament it's a classical opeth song what I saw live and it's maybe the hardest song of this album Benighted it's and acustical song what sounds like a day obscured by clouds with the melancoly what Mikael insert in he's vocals. Moon Lapse Vertigo it's another good song and it's a transition between Benighted and Face Of Melinda but no for that its not amazing. Face Of Melinda it's called by Mikael like he's balad, and it's rigth in one way but in another it's a song what it's growning up until the point that the song going heavy and the end its magistral. Serenity Painted Death an anger song what experiments with the limits of the growls of Mikael and the heavy that could be to go a way to White Cluster. White Cluster starts whit the classical death metal music but in a moment the voice changes and its beautiful the guitars are amazings with the combination of Mikael and Peter what made me think what the leave of Peter of the band are to desintegrate opeth. And to end a recomendation if you could listen the complete album no only 1 song because the songs are in this order to made an a history and the changes ase very nice.
