5 stars To sum this album up into 5 words is hard, but i will try it: The best album ever, period. Okay, maybe it's not that difficult. But honestly this album has inspired me no ends. This made me change the way i view music and how i write songs. It has brilliant production, amazing songwriting (being a concept album of epic proportions) and is Opeth at their creative peak. If you are a progressive music fan who likes death metal you'd be stupid not to buy this album. I'd call it progressive metal, but many people refer to it as death metal due to some of its dissonance and the harsh vocals. It's got hints of jazz to it, beautiful melodic acoustic passages, blistering shred solos alongside perfectly played solos all about feel.. The list can go on but i'm not sad enough to write all of the points out.

In short - buy this album. It just might change your life. It certainly changed mine.
