4 stars The second Opeth album I got, the dark cover with the girl's face in the mirror in the background, its really eerie like she's looking at you (as usual by the brilliant Travis Smith). I bought it round a friend of mines and put it on it was really bad. His sound system I mean, it didn't do it justice it just sounded all lost within itself, But when I got back I put it on mine and was happy with it. Their heaviest album (although i'm not sure about ORCHID and MORNINGRISE as I don't have them) in contrast to DAMNATION which I didn't get till later.

Although most think it's weak its not my favorite but i wouldn't say its particularly weak or anything. Starts off with WREATH, heavy (naturally) from the outset goes through the masterful DELIVERANCE with the epic drumming of Martin Lopez. To the relatively soft A FAIR JUDGEMENT which is one of my favorite Opeth songs actually, and into the instumental FOR ABSENT FRIENDS which i find kinda relaxing and a nice interlude, preceding the final two songs MASTER'S APPRENTICES and BY THE PAIN I SEE IN OTHERS, which are amongst the best of the bands discography (at least in my opinion)

As always this band proves just how good they are together as songwriters, musicians and friends.

4 stars.
