5 stars I know that it could be crazy to rate this album with five stars. Considering that i'm not great "metal fan", what would made me love so much this album? Strange! I love the lyrics, i love the lead voice, bass, drums and guitar work. They can be a kind of spacy rockers but in a different way. A heavy and darker way! I saw an explanation of the Opeth, talking about Drappery falls song composition: they were playing with clean sounds and then i realized how beatifull their music are. They do not play simple power chords, they do the complete chord with prefference for dissonant sounds and minor chords with an added 9th. They have also great pieces of intrumental work! Opeth are on of the best bands we have in active in this planet! (I'm not a fan of metal) But they are very, very good!

I own every album of Opeth, Damnation is very good but as no power when we are wainting. Blackwater Park as the melody and a devasting power! The best i've hearded! A trully timeless album!
