Best Opeth album?
 
I currently only have Morningrise, which is nothing short of a musical masterpiece, and Orchid. I'm looking to buy more. Which is best? (or just basically another Morningrise)

Blackwater Park is alright, but Opeth is mostly- :sleeping:
Way too simple and boring for me

Tattered 2004-11-04 14:58

Blackwater park, but i also do agree with MTM its a bit boring, too mellow and tense.. but still great musicians

Knight 2004-11-04 15:08

Blackwater Park is overrated, I like Still Life.

MetalThrashingMad 2004-11-04 15:12

yea, too mellow, even the songs that are more death metal are still mellow, but they are good musicians, and the vocalist is ok too.

MarquisaWolf 2004-11-04 15:21

Morningrise is THE BEST in my opinion ,followed by Orchid and Still Life

TOO BORING!?!?


you and your kreator can piss off!


blackwater park is by far the best, but dont expect another morningrise!

guitar_demon 2004-11-04 15:59

my arms...
my fav i really like the vocals on their which is odd cause he was sick when he did them

Transient 2004-11-04 16:01

yeah really, he sounds stuffy when he sings clean on that album

that album is weak except from the drumming, he does some PHAT beats

you know what im talking about

Blackwater Park
My Arms, your hearse
Morningrise

Still Life is overrated.

AbbathGS 2004-11-04 20:18

I used to think Still Life was overrated, but it is their best. Orchid, Morningrise, Blackwater Park are all next.

MyOwnSavior 2004-11-04 23:41

I remember when I did a Best Opeth Album thread. It got closed. Anyways,

My Arms, Your Hearse
Deliverance
Blackwater Park
Still Life
Damnation

MoonRaven 2004-11-05 00:16

ok, in order of greatness
blackwater park
damnation
still life
deliverance
morningrise
my arms your hearse
orchid

not to say that orchid is a bad album, but the others are better.

opeth may be boring to you, but opeth is far from simple, they are some of the most complex music i have ever heard. they arent fast, but id like to see one of your thrash bands try and pull off some opeth.

1. Morningrise
2. Blackwater Park
3. Deliverance
4. Still Life
5. My Arms, Your Hearse
6. Damnation
7. Orchid (damn that was hard placing orchid there it makes it seem like a bad album which it certainly aint!)
8. The Slim Shady LP (jk :D )

you find them boring. so they arent for everyone, meh. but dont ever call them simple??

opeth are simple, dani filths colossal and cum-drenched anus crack! listen to pretty much any kreator song, then listen to the drapery falls, and you will see the "simple" comment is about as valid as ramming a 10 year old one-way bus ticket into CarnivorousWind's colon.

Thats becuase it got off tipoc like this one has, one person has said they dont like opeth and everybody else has felt the need to justify why opeth is good and not what they say. GET OVER IT COCKSUCKERS. ITS FUCKING CALLED OPINION, IF THEY DON'T LIKE OPETH LET THEM NOT LIKE OPETH. IF THEY THINK ITS SIMPLE SHIT, ALLOW THEM TO WALLOW IN IGNORANCE AS TO WHAT A GREAT BAND THEY ARE MISSING OUT ON. This doesn't just apply to opeth either, there are lots of instances of this in band threads, where someone says they dont like a band and then they instantly get flamed, although Transient does deserve it in thecs case because he is just stupid.
My favourite opeth albums would be Deliverance and My Arms, though this can change depending on mood, as I also like Still Life alot.

Anubis 2004-11-05 01:34

I actually like Damnation better than the rest, but my favortie song of thiers is on Still Life.

Disincarnate 2004-11-05 01:48

have heard only damnation......liked it but dont have the patience to listen to songs over 10 min

Nothingface4TehWin 2004-11-05 13:39

So basically, from all opinions I should buy all the albums I dont have. And I can understand the simple comment if they're commenting on the first two albums, because none of the parts are too challenging to play, but Mikael's songwriting in them are out of this world.
