5 stars This is clearly my favourite album by Opeth. Altough I started with Damnation, as many people do, and not being very familiar with death metal gutural voices, the music, the concept, the production... well, everything that concerns this album is just amazing. This album, also, is very important in Opeth career, as it started another way of making music for them (at least, I see the differences with the other albums of the pre-Still Life era), and shows without any doubt their maturity. The Moor is just outstanding, and so Serenity Painted Death, and, well, so on. Even the softer (in terms of music, not in quality) parts, as Benighted or Face of Melinda are perfect and will please the ears of those who enjoy sofisticated pieces. After that song, the whole album continues, without any stop, in a very hard way, but ends in piano, the same way the album started. For me, a life-changing album.
