5 stars Opeth's fifth best album in my opinion. Dynamic, consistent, and with a great concept, I can say it's essential.

Still Life follows the story of a man who escaped a religious town because he was an atheist, years after, he returns to get his girlfriend "Melinda" (who became a nun) so that they can both exit that place.

The Moor and Godhead's Lament showcase great melodies and heavy moments in a very well balanced way.

Moonlapse Vertigo and Serenity Painted Death are both very heavy tracks that feature many great riffs.

Benighted and Face Of Melinda work as the ballads from the album, the latter being one of 's finest ballads featuring an amazing chorus and bridge.

White Cluster closes the album fairly well, although I don't really care that much about it. Still a good track.

Overall a good and enjoyable prog death metal album that I would recommend. Five stars.
