5 stars Simply my favourite OPETH album. I got it first, and only then I learned they're Prog! I mean when I was deep in Doom/Death Metal, I thought OPETH are really unique for that genre. Now I know that they're unique for Prog, and that they're unique without being pigeonholed to any existing genre. Death/Folk/Doom/Black/Prog-Metal, if you like? Anyway, the quintessence of early OPETH manner, both agressive and progressive and way more interesting than what they has to offer now, in my opinion. With 20-min long 'Black Rose Immortal' and 10 min of sheer brilliance in 'To Bid You Farewell' this album sets the standards for future Experimental Metal releases. What can be more eclectic? Probably, only MAUDLIN OF THE WELL managed to reach supremacy over OPETH in terms of experimenting in Metal. Amazing album and every progger should check it - especially if you've had already checked later OPETH, didn't like it and now wondering why everyone seems to adore this Scandinavian band. Highly recommended!
