5 stars WOW!!! What can i say....Opeth dod it again!! They created an outstanding album that features all the elements we love from this band and also adding some new sounds. This is what a really progressive band does..... create a sound of their own and is always looking ahead for new paths to walk.This is by far the most experimental album that they have deliivered and its a trulu masterpiece. The keybords add some ineresting touches without interfearing the guitars......because after all......the Opeth escense is intact. The vocal aspect has been again improved. Steven Wilson isnīt producing on this one but you can hear his influence on Mikael's singing......more eleborated, with some arrangements and with his awesome sense of armony and intense feeling. The riffs are a little different but after a few listens you love them. Every track is excellent...on the last can hear the Damnation sound.....its good to know that they didnt loose that. Their best? I dont know........ better that deliverance i must say........and at top with still life. Its clear that the band took their time for this album......the deliverance recording experience left some lessons i must say.......because altough they released a very good album.....there was....."something" missing....on the clear vocals for example......but nothing is missing this time. Opeth did evolve without forgetting where they come from and who they are......... we applaude them!!!!! I raise my beer to say : HAIL OPETH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
