5 stars Blackwater Park! Man, this is such an epic masterpiece by Opeth! The first album I heard from them and wow, it was amazing. Actually, it's also the first progressive death metal album I've heard. "The Leper Affinity" starts things off crazy! Heavy all the way. What I really love about Opeth is their ability to switch from heavy guitar riffs and growls to soft, acoustic touches in the matter of a few seconds. I found that quite extraordinary. The bonus tracks add an exceptional acoustic touch that ultimately made me give BP a 5 star rating. Get your hands on this, seriously.

1. "The Leper Affinity" - 10/10

2. "Bleak" - 9/10

3. "Harvest" - 9/10

4. "The Drapery Falls" - 10/10

5. "Dirge for November" - 9/10

6. "The Funeral Portrait" - 8/10

7. "Patterns in the Ivy I" - 9/10

8. "Blackwater Park" - 9/10

9. "Still Day Beneath the Sun" - 10/10

10. "Patterns in the Ivy II" - 10/10

93/10 = 93% = 5 stars

Lark the Starless | 5/5 |
