The new album from Opeth, Ghost Reveries, is 66 minutes of staggering new material. Frontman Mikael Åkerfeldt puts it this way: "There's no other band on the planet like us." Believe it. This is set to be not only the Swedish metal album of the year but possibly THE metal album of the year.

The last album to feature the so-called classic line-up of Akerfeldt, Lindgren, Lopez and Mendez, aided by one Per Wiberg on keys, Ghost Reveries is a perfect, and I don't throw that word around lightly, swansong for those departing players, Martin Lopez and Peter Lindgren. Indeed, their work on here is without doubt the finest of their respective careers. The guitar work in particular stands out on this Opeth release, each and every song filled with luscious passages, varied playing styles, intriguing rhythm and lead sections: basically, plenty to make the CD worth any serious metal guitarist's time. Lopez' drumming too has never been better, most noticeable on tracks "Harlequin Forest" and slow-burner "The Grand Conjuration". His work on the latter song is a masterpiece of understatement balanced with sheer power, at once both timid and majestic. As and when his varies capabilities are needed, he never fails to impress.
As for those still in the fold, the praise comes just as readily. Mikael Akerfeldt is without question the best singer in all of music today. As a metal vocalist, he belongs to a select group who practice a style which is both as grim as they come and perfectly intoned and comprehensible.Read more ›
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)
What I like about Ghost Reveries is that it is (to some extent) quite different from all the other albums Opeth released before that, while at the same time sticking to their musical roots. One thing I noticed with this album and not on any other metal album I have bought in my lifetime, is that in some of the songs on this album (if not all of them) Opeth used a guitar tuning which I never came across until buying and listening to Ghost Reveries, the guitar tuning in question is called Open D Minor 9 (low to high string: D A D F A E), although as far as I know they mostly used the Drop D tuning (low to high string: D A D G B E) as well as Open D Minor 9.Read more ›

One of the best prog metal albums of all time. Superb double vinyl set.Published 9 months ago by Amazon Customer
Decidedly, Opeth'm getting to like the metal. I must say that their music is very elaborate. They spend the progressive metal in EVERY pieces, it is a treat.Published 13 months ago by AS1
For me, this is probably their best album. I'm not generally a fan of death metal deep growling vocals, finding them quite jarring in that I become suddenly aware that I'm... Read morePublished 21 months ago by S. Smith
