5.0 out of 5 stars Prog Rock, 23 Jun. 2008
This review is from: Watershed (Special Edition) (Audio CD)
OK this is their best album however, only if your open minded and like prog rock. This is not Death Metal, its as prog as it gets, organs and all. Opeth have progressed and in the most wonderful way. On this album you get far less Growls, far more beauty but its still heavy with lots of great guitar work, electric and acoustic (Camel/Floyd influence maybe in some parts). If you don't like this then your view on music is very narrow indeed. Opeth could loose a lot of their Metal fans but just like Radiohead, the new fans they gain will be more open minded to experimentation. THIS IS A MUST BUY. Old prog rockers like me who carried on progressing even during the terrible eighties when prog almost died, with one or two exceptions, will love this, even the Deep Purple parts. Opeth have always been one of the best prog bands, now they are in the top ten of all time along with, Porcupine Tree, Pain of Salvation, Tool, King Crimson, Beardfish, Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel, Nine Inch Nails and Radiohead.
