5.0 out of 5 stars Deliverance (Vinyl) -- Opeth May 11 2013
By Joel Andrews TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
If you are an Opeth fan, then this needs to be in your collection! I have most of them on vinyl now, and I personally find the sound quality amazing. I also recommend going to see them live, I have seen them twice now, they are great live!

By M. Codas Echavarri TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
I bought this "Limited Collector's Edition 180-gram vinyl" because this album is one of my favourites from Opeth. For those who don't know much about Opeth, they do Death metal mixed with progressive acoustic parts, killing riffs and great ambiance, and of course vocals (both growling and clean), from Mikael Akerfeldt.

"Deliverance" is a great album in all senses of the word. The compositions are top notch, vocal work is excellent, guitars are beyond what any band is doing right now, and not because of the speed, but because of the musicality behind the riffs. Also, this album still had Martin Lopez behind the drums. Lopez is, in my opinion, one of the best metal drummers to hit the scene, particularly because of his implementation of jazz drumming into death metal.

As for the vinyl presentation, it's a gatefold vinyl. The lyrics are written inside, and a couple of pictures. As always, Opeth keeps it clean. I like the "collector's edition" sticker (and I kept it). However, the SOUND is the main attractive behind this purchase. Without getting into too many technicalities, digital mixes (such as those for CDs), are compressed in certain frequencies. MP3s can't even compete, not even at 320 kpbs. But vinyl... in vinyl it seems like everything has more ROOM. It's not as tight, and the delicacies of each instrument, specially of the drums, are much more noticeable.

Overall, the only negative thing that I have to say about this purchase is that it did take a while for the order to get here, but that's to be expected with an item such as this. It was definitely worth the wait, and for the price, this album cannot be beaten.

5.0 out of 5 stars A damn good attempt at topping Blackwater Park July 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
As one who prefers the heavier side of progressive metal, I thouroughly enjoyed this opeth album. It may not be there best work, but it certainly tops any other album by any other band.
Strong songs include: Wreath & A Fair Judgement
Weaker songs: None
Wreath is a great way to jump right into the album with deep growls that blend well with the tone of the music. The guitar as usual is phenominal. This song does an excellent job of making the vocals loud enough to enjoy over the instruments, but not to loud that you can't catch the drum beats in the background and the guitar. I particularly like the phase around 1:47 from heavy guitar and growling to a slightly lighter tone that ends with a drum beat and an incredibly smooth transition that has no time lost.
The transition to Deliverance is so clean that I never picked it up the first few times listening to this album. I like the change up within the first quarter of this song from heavy to light. The end of the song does a great job of co-ordinating the drums and guitars on a beat. That's talent.
A Fair Judgement, one of the lighter, but not Benighted or Harvest tone does a good job of showing off Akerfeldt's lighter vocals with no growling at all. This song is loved by many of my friends who would not normally listen to Opeth because of the savage deep growls. This song has some amazing acoustic vocal and guitar combinations.
The calmest song on the album, For Absent Friends, is a bit repetitive if heard on it's own, but it does a great job of breaking up the album's heaviness. It is short, but holds some great acoustic guitar portions.
Master's Apprentice is great work. The begining lyrics, although don't have much meaning are great for the heavy attitude of the song.

I bought this cd cause I wanted to see what all the underground hype was about. I've heard this stuff before. Melodic Swedish Black Metal...been around since about 1994 and its been done much better. Its a fine cd for what it is. But its nothing unique or original. And thats why I give it 2 stars. I have about 15 bands just like this one that date back years ago. Why should I care about these guys. Find any band thats Swedish and melodic black/death metal and they all sound the same. Decent music, but not groundbreaking at all. **

3.0 out of 5 stars Opeth down the drain... June 21 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Being the huge Opeth fan that I am... I had to finally get Deliverance. I have every album now. Isn't that great? But sadly, I am a bit dissapointed with Deliverance.
For one thing, Opeth gets a little heavier... not a bad thing, but they had to get a bit on the mediocre side as well.
Agh, Marty (drummer) relies too much on the double bass.
And the riffs, although still with Opeth flare, are closer to
just the plain metal riffs than ever before. And what the heck happened? Did Mikael put the guitar down for this album? Where are all the beautiful harmonizing dual guitars? Also, where is the emotion in this? All of Opeth's previous are pack jammed with emotion and a distinct feel to the music. And even if this band still feels like Opeth, it runs weak. And how about technicality? There is some prententious parts on here... like in Master's Apprentice with the broken chords... bad attempt there.
I loved Opeth for their feel and originality. And while this album still has it. It's incredibly deluted. But, if you're an Opeth fan. I'd buy this album for the collection! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Once you get past the cheese-ball "Cookie Monster" vocals...
This is a wicked "progressive metal" album...I'm relatively new to Opeth, having dismissed them early on, and only recently being wowed by "Damnation". Read more
