5 stars Well, this is an amazing heavy progressive metal album. Really great music with new important members in the new sound of the band. I really like Opeth because of the evolution in their records, they try to do new things, experiments, things that they have never done. Coil is a sweet song, very sweet and dark at the end, an end to Heir Apparent, one of the most heavy Opeth songs. The Lotus Eater is FANTASTIC, a fucking amazing progressive piece of music, not only progressive, a mix of a lot of styles. Burden is excellent, we can hear the big 70s influence on the band, the keyboard solo, the feeling, Mikael voice, nice. The rest of the album is very very good, Porcelain Heart and Hessian Peel are strong songs with a lot of variation in the music, the instruments, even in Mikael voice (The clean shout is incredible). Hex Omega is another progressive piece, not a ballad but soft, an excellent album closer to an excellent album.

Despite of bad coments, Opeth is always great (and I'm not a death metal fan), is just one of the best bands at the moment, and we all have to admit it.
