5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, 21 July 2006
This review is from: Ghost Reveries (Audio CD)
Opeth to me are one of the few bands who really provide a musical experience which is unique, moving, breathtaking and dark all at the same time. I really believe that their musicianship is of a level second to none. Anyway, this album is beautiful, from the crushing and gorgeous Ghost of Perdition (which by the way i would put up there with Lepper Affinity, Demon of the Fall, Drapery Falls,etc) to the simple, stripped down, yet incredibly moving Isolation Years. The album has got a slightly different feel to other albums, theres more 'clean' singing than before but the awesome death metal vocals Mikael delivers are still there. I read in some reviews that Opeth should stick to more clean singing, the point is that Opeth are a progressive Death Metal band, so the main vocal style will allways be the Death Metal vocal(the grunts), this may take time to get used to but believe me, when u do you wont want it any other way!!! so in my view the clean vocals are the calm amongst the main storms of death metal voicings rather than the other way round. Anyway, buy this, it really is incredible, ive got everything from Morningrise onwards (i'll be getting orchid soon)

and I believe this album to be as complete and as beautiful as any of them, i might change my view in time;who knows; but for the time being I am immersed in this beautiful creation. GO GET IT!! (FAV tracks at the mo: Ghost of Perdition, Baying of the Hounds, Harlequin Forest, Isolation Years)
