4 stars I think that Morningrise clearly surpasses its predecessor. This was the most acoustic Opeth's album before the Damnation's coming. Some songs from this album are really half metal, half not, like the beautiful The Night and The Silent Water. To bid you Farewell is the first attempt of Opeth to make something more relaxed and in a classical style from the 70's, and they made a great song, in that style that they will follow more deeply in the future. It reminds me to Face of Melinda...

Black Rose Immortal deserves a place of honor in the Opeht's career, their largest song, and it has really brilliant moments, specially in the center of the track, with a wonderful mix of relaxed and strong parts. But in the opposite side, this song has some moment not very good, with a weak sound... Although that doesn't mean that it isn't a great song.

Really, a great work, for me the best of their three first releases. I think it's the best Opeth's album to know the early years of the group. The production could be better, and the songs aren't too different between them, but the romanticism and the gloomy feeling that this album inspires it's wonderful. Like the bass guitar of Nektar, the powerful riffs of Advent...
