4 stars It is the subtle little refrains that always make an Opeth album. On repeated listens these become apparent. There are certainly cliched minor riffing interludes that seemingly go on too long but it somehow feels different. Lead breaks seem nore heacier and coherent and the bass playing cab be heard. This is of course Opeth and dullness does beckon at times. But eventually you are transported to another world. The vision of this band is fine. Despite the amazing amount of scorn downloaded on this release I think its quite remarkable in parts and also rather flawed. The keyboards can come across as clumsy and cheesy. But hey thats a minor flaw. For me the death vocals sound forced at times. They have their place, but seem well wrong at places.
