5 stars Blackwater Park is a really outstanding album. Much different then you might expect from a metal band. Nothing on this album is bad, even the extra tracks on the double album are good. 'Leper Afinity' starts out the album with some hard hitting riffs and the album is later ended with 'Blackwater Park' with ends it with heavy riffs. There is a mix of different things in the middle as well. 'Harvest' is a very clean vocal song which is a nice number on the album and 'the Drapery falls' is also worth mentioning as well as all the other tracks to be honest so here goes: 'Bleak', 'Dirge for November', 'The Funeral Portrait', 'Paterns in the Ivy', 'Blackwater Park'. 'Still Day Beneath The Sun' and 'Patterns in the Ivy II' are also good tracks. Both are acoustic but still a nice addition to the album if you can find the double disc set. The 'Harvest' video is just some studio footage with the guys playing video games and recording. This is one high quality album, worthy of a place next to 'Still Life'.
