A great album which, with its lack of growls and distorted guitars, is also a very brave album from Opeth. Rather than blending death metal and progressive rock, it seems that on this album, √Ökerfeldt is aiming for a blend of melancholic 90s-style alternative rock with progressive rock, and it works quite well.

Psychedelic Prog Rock
This is known as Opeth's growl free album, and it doesn't disappoint. One of the things that made me love Opeth was the excellent contrasts between death metal and mellow sections. It doesn't contain any of these contrasts, and prog metal fans may feel left in the dust. The music is very mellow, and occasionally gets boring, but never for too long. I recommend this only to people opposed to death metal growls. Everyone should get it at some point, but prog metal fans should start with other releases.

No growls makes my ears much happier. This is a magnificent album.

Atmospheric Prog Rock
I was waiting for eight years for Opeth to deliver an album without extreme metal parts, and this is it - the complete antithesis from the twin album Deliverance (their heaviest album). Most people will find it too mellow, but not me... it's simply outstanding. Fans of Anathema and Porcupine Tree should love this album too.

Highly recommended (one of the 3 albums of my collection that could pretend to a maximum rating...)
