OPETH DELIVERS AND DELIVERANCE IS CRUSHING!,
This review is from: Deliverance (Audio CD)
Personally, this is my favourite Opeth Album so far. I love their dynamics and the atmosphere they create when you're on one of their epic journeys is astounding! I think they are probably one of the only bands I can honestly say that have the perfect balance of mood changes in their music, but Deliverance is the real scorcher from the flamethrower arsenal they have. I love the heavier stuff on here, because they create it so effortlessly and perfectly, and musically its so intricate and mesmurizing, it never grows dull, much like their other albums. The final track is one of my favourites, but all of the album is virtually perfect in my opinion.
Although everyone seems to love Blackwater Park the most, I would say this is a more straightforward album, having it's Opeth stamp of twists and turns, but more accessable and heavier.
I just hope Heritage can live up to Deliverance standards but I would be happy with a mixture of Still Life, Watershed, and Deliverance, possibly the best example of all their influences in three albums..
