5 stars Opeth have managed to break the cycle of repeating itself at "My Arms, Your Hearse". However, that was a relatively immature album; The brutality in tone was a result of musical instability rather than a compliance with dark nature of its story.

In Still Life, The band has blended diverse musical tastes in a balance by breaking away its past overdosed folky tone and it has succeeded to set the integrity between the riffs in a more perceptive way. Consistency of reflecting the tension of the storyline to melodies is also stimulating in this musically prolific work of art. Considering that, in the following albums, a slight distortion of this harmony can be seen due to ongoing bravely experimental pursuit, Opeth have reached to its climax in this album.
