This Legacy Edition loses a star on the rating for 2 reason: 1) The price, 2) That annoying sticker is on the actual booklet over the cover art. Small things to complain about but hey, I'm picky. This comes with a bonus DVD featuring a surround mix of the album and it is the main attraction. Just like with Still Life, Ghost Reveries and Watershed, you can downmix the DTS track to 2 channels and have a superior mix that will sound much better than the original cd. Enjoy.

Blackwater Park is an album of amalgamation and perfection, not just for Opeth but for metal as a whole. Until this point, Opeth had been carving out a niche of their own in the world of heavy music, with releases like the stunning 'My arms, Your hearse' or 'Still Life'. But Blackwater Park truly is a 'monumetal mark' to quote the title track, not just in terms of a vision fully realised, bit in terms of finally eliminating any barriers that might be left to the band to take their music onto a new level.
What is immediately apparent upon listening to the opener 'The Leper Affinity' is not just the seamlessness, the perfected ebb and flow of the music, but the incredible comfort with which this supremely talented band approaches music of extreme complexity. Much of this crystal clear, coherent sound can be laid, I believe, at the door of genius producer Steven Wilson, of Porcupine Tree fame. The vocal harmonies have certainly bear his influence, and by God, this record sees some of the best vocal parts they've yet laid down on tape, from the hypnotic mid section of 'Bleak' to the heartbreaking chorus of 'Harvest'. 'Blackwater park' sees the band stretching its creative muscles like never before. Each song has its own distinctive stamp, and each is filled with reams of immaculate ideas and intelligent execution. 'Bleak' has a unique, middle Eatern tinged riff, 'Harvest' evokes sepia coloured autumn days perfectly, while 'The Drapery Falls' rides in on a lilting, melancholy melody that returns in its conclusion and draws tears to my eyes. But the culmination of the record comes in the practically transcendent title track, which surely merits a high water mark for what can be done with the metal genre.

I'd heard the rave reviews of Opeth for years, so I finally decided to give them a go. Not knowing where to start, I picked the Royal Albert Hall dvd, where they play this album in its entirety all the way through. So naturally, I was completely blown away and had to buy this album immediately.
It covers so much ground musically, it's hard to describe, but since it involves some death metal, it automatically gets categorized like that. But it's a hell of a musical journey, extremely vast in scope, that'll force you to experience almost your full range of emotions and leave you on a high when finished. Even days later, a song or piece of a song will be stuck in your head and still bring a tear to your eye it's so beautiful.
About the sticker on the cover - yes it's directly on the cover, but it's easily removed with some acetone(nail polish remover), which takes off the sticker without damaging the cover in any way whatsoever, I promise.

This to me is Opeth's darkest album. It also has the best acoustic melodies I've ever heard. Every song is solid, if not epic. "My Arms, Your Hearse" is great also, but lacks the majesty and polish of this release. If you've never heard this band before, this may be the best place to start. This is actually the only Opeth CD that is perfect from start to finish. I would also highly recommend the Lamentations DVD. It truely helps the listener understand the band.

I have owned this album for about a year now, and I think I've finally got a handle on just how good this is. This isn't a one-time listen album to fully understand. You need to listen to it several times to really grasp just how far-reaching, intelligent, innovative, heavy, and just plain good this album is.
Mikael Akerfelt (I think that's how you spell the lead singer's name) is one of the best vocalists in all of metal music, regardless of subgenre. He can peel paint off the wall with his throat shredding wail and he can also floor you with melody and a truly beautiful singing voice, as evidenced by "Dirge for November". His musical arrangements are so complicated and textured that I still can't pick apart each layer. The texture of the music creates a very dark musical atmosphere. It almost gives the impression of being in a sparse forest, at night, in the winter. When I listen to Blackwater Park, I actually start to feel cold. It's eerie as hell.
To review: Blackwater Park = best heavy record ever, Mikael Akerfelt = brilliant. Buy this album already!

It's fortunate that I was introduced to Opeth by a friend who had the sense not to try and classify them. If she'd said "black metal" or "death metal" I might have been less inclined to listen. Fortunately she didn't, and I'm now the proud owner of all the albums by this phenomenal group.
Being relatively new to Opeth, I couldn't say if there is a "best" album, but Blackwater Park is a superb one without any question. The sheer amount of great riffs, melodies, beats and vocals (yes, he does growl, but when he sings clean, he has a wonderful voice) is quite amazing. Unlike many bands, for whom the idea of contrasting loud and soft is nothing more than a gimmick, the heavy stuff here is as good as any metal band you could name, and the soft stuff is genuinely gorgeous to listen to. The acoustic "Harvest" is a great song, and the guitar lines on "Bleak" are inventive, powerful and mesmerising. The title track itself is another standout track, flowing from soft to hard with no sense of difficulty at all. But really there is so much on offer here that it is pointless to single out individual tracks.
Opeth will, if there is any justice, gain a reputation as one of the most important bands in recent memory. In terms of variety, musical skill and inventiveness there are few around who can get close.
