5.0 out of 5 stars A step forwards, at last!!!, 1 Mar 2008
This review is from: Ghost Reveries (Audio CD)
A lot of people don't seem to love this album. I can't say why. Ghost Reveries is for me, the best album Opeth released since Morningrise (but sounding completely different ofcourse).

I believe that Ghost Reveries is a big step forward for Opeth, the step that they should take several albums earlier. For example, Still Life, Blackwater Park and Deliverance sound so similar to my ears. But Ghost Reveries is so different than their previous records.

First of all, they tuned down their guitars 2 full steps in all songs. For non-guitarists, this means that this album sounds heavy! Well, almost all Opeth albums sound heavy, but this one sounds strangely heavy. There is a mysterious feel through all songs that I would define as... ghosty! Hence the title.

Mikael's brutal vocals are heavier than ever, while clean vocals are prettier than ever! They really do! I believe there are more clean vocals in this record than any other Opeth record (apart from Damnation ofcourse).

Favorite songs? Well, pretty much all! I could choose 2 or 3, but this wouldn't do justice to the rest. But let's just say there are very good chances you'll find YOUR personal favorite Opeth song in Ghost Reveries.

Mikael, you set the bar very high once again! Can't wait for the new album.
