Heritage is a mature album written by a band who has inspired me since their inception. I'm one of the rare few fans who had realized their importance and significance during the Orchid/Morningrise era. I can also admit to losing a significant amount of interest with Ghost Reveries and Watershed. The heavy parts on those albums seemed forced and much too formulaic for my tastes.
I was skeptical when purchasing Heritage. I only wanted it to continue my Opeth vinyl collection as I felt the band, with all of the member changes and arrogance attached to the lead song writer's work, had long since expired.
This is an album that doesn't grab you immediately. Perhaps it never will if you're expecting death metal vocals or heavy guitar melodies.
It's a mature album written as an homage to all progressive albums of the past.
There are elements of Yes, Deep Purple, King Crimson, and Jethro Tull that reign apparent throughout this record. The cleaner guitar parts sound reminiscent of Knopler's best work and the overall composition is very Brahms.
I know that it's a long stretch to compare a modern day rock quintet to the likes of Brahms but if you give the entire piece a listen as a whole I'm sure it will be, at the least, a respectable comparison.
The continuation of the theme that god is surely dead, which is a very Nietzche approach to a progressive album, is remarkable and to me the only time in this band's career where they have successfully recorded a concept for our listening pleasure. I know there have been other albums that have followed the "concept album" motif. They just weren't as seamless as this.
The subtle ambiences between songs are beautiful and as a complete work of art astounding.

This product made it to me within the Time frame I was given, which is rare for me. I was not broken or scratched, but it was not wrapped in cellophane. So I, not 100% sure it was new.
Generally speaking I am satisfied.

Very disapointing release when listened to as an Opeth release. However, its a pretty great album if you take have no preconceived ideas. If you like Steve Wilson, you'll probably enjoy this album. If you want an Opeth, look else where - Katatonia.

Aunque tengo esta obra en CD con este gran grupo dictando pautas de buen rock, esta vez progresivo, nunca esta de mas un lindo vinilo con una estupenda caratula de buen arte, viva el vinilo y grande Opeth

Opeth has always had a wide range of musical approaches, and their newest album is no exception. Although this album doesn't scream "Death Metal", it is sure to please any true fan of Opeth.

I've been a huge Opeth fan for many years, and Ghost Reveries tops my list. Through Mikael and Steven Wilson, I've gone on this fascinating musical journey back to the 70s to bands I never knew existed - Scott Walker, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Blackwater Park, Vangelis, etc. etc. - and this album feels like an honest, authentic tribute to those influences. Mikael has a fantastic singing voice, and I love his mellow music even though I'm a metal fan. This is like Atonement from Ghost Reveries, my favourite song. It's so nice not to hear him screaming but instead using textured vocals, acoustic instruments, keyboards, etc. To me it feels like an album that draws from his influences without any concern for what the metal community would demand of it.

In short, this is the Opeth I like, the prog, acoustic, mellow, complex, thought-provoking Opeth - not screaming metal Opeth. So if you're looking for screaming Opeth, this album is not for you, but if you want profound, thoughtful, philosophical Opeth, got get it. It's my #2 Opeth album next to Ghost Reveries.

Plus, it's the coolest album cover ever!
