This review is from: Still Life [Digipak] (Audio CD)
I ordered this album knowing nothing about Opeth, i didn't have a clue what they were like, i just came across the album by chance. This was definately an amazing album, right from the very start you can tell it is going to be good, from the soft acoustic/classical guitar riffs, to the heavier distorted guitars. Each song is packed with emotion, and is a real pleasure to listen to; All the elements of the songs combine to produce a really wonderful sound. Although each song is quite long, you never get bored, the songs are always gripping, either with soft melodic classical guitar, or strong distorted solos.
This is definately a must for people who enjoy their music to have feeling and quality in them. Highlights are throughout the album, so there isn't a 'best song' as such, although my personal favourite is 'White Cluster'.
