4 stars A bit more mellower than the others, but still worth a listen!!

"In My Time of Need" is OK but could be better, has cool loud screehing guitars but a comes to me as a ballad 3/5!!!

"Windowpane" a mellow track and is the opener to the album, with different time signitures 4/5!!!

"Closure" is another favourite track with superb guitar work, and arabic influences 5/5!!.

"To Rid the Disease" I agree with other reviewers this track has resembelences of Porcupine Tree!!!, a modest 3/5!!

"Ending Credits" has excellent guitar riffs , 5/5!!!

"Death Wispered a Lullaby" very dark song and is a good prog song and is one of my favourites on this album, 5/5!!!

"Hope Leaves" is a soft ballad and I'm afraid this is a weak track, 1/5!!

"Weakness" reminds me of Pink Floyd and extracts of Led Zepellin, but this is a weak track and not the best of all Opeth tracks, 2/5!!!

In general I love the music from Opeth and no execption from this album, but not as hardcore as the rest!!

89% recommended, 8 1/2 / 10.
