Advent: 10/10 Perfect. This 14-minute song is a flawless piece of musical brilliance. It has everything: soft, emotional parts, heavy metal parts, and pure genius.
The Night and the Silent Water: 9/10 Solid and very awesome. The song spins in metal and acoustic ping pong. At about 10 minutes into the song, Mikel whispers the title in the ending sentence.
Nectar: 10/10 This song starts with a simple drum beat, then picks up into the enduring metal riffs, separated by relatively small acoustic melodies. At about six minutes into the song, a two-minute acoustic break comes, showing beatutiful singing. This is followed by my favorite part. A dueling metal/acoustic tradeoff occurs until the song breaks off suddenly into a sweet metal jam, ending the song. This song is also brilliant and one of my personal favorites. It has a cool guitar solo and everything needed to make a song great.
Black Rose Immortal: 10/10 The monster of Opeth. OVER 20 MINUTES LONG! It begins with a drum fill and a screaming Mikel. Awesome! Then, of course, the short acoustic beauty. Then a very Iron Maiden-like riffs sets it off again. METAL CAN"T GET ANY BETTER! But then, the song stops for the acoustics. The acoustic riff is then turned into some really heavy stuff. I dig this song the whole way through! It turns really fast, then really slow and beautiful for 4 minutes, then turns metal for a few minutes, then turns back acoustic, and yet again fast metal. Then, slow and really minor and sad! After 19 minutes it turns really, really HEAVY! I NEVER GET TIRED OF THIS FRGN AWESOME SONG!Read more ›
Made up of five songs that last over an hour (no song is less than ten minutes long), the album makes brilliant use of the band's ability to work with dynamics... songs change from serene and peaceful to violent and aggressive at the drop of a hat, all the while maintaining their cohesion (which speaks worlds about this band's fantastic songwriting). The extended length of each of the songs is ideal in that it allows the band to experiment and progress where they see fit... don't expect any choruses or refrains of any kind!
In terms of where this album stands in the band's discography, I'm tempted to have it tied with STILL LIFE as my favorite... both are astounding albums that never fail to amaze me upon repeated viewings and both have a strong emphasis on lighter material. I think STILL LIFE edges this one out slightly, though, since Mikael's vocals haven't quite reached their potential on this release... His growls would get much more deep and powerful, and his clean singing would get more confident later on, although they do seem to have an endearing quality here... the passion in Mikael's singing is very much evident, especially in the depressing soft passages.
The opening riff in "Advent" is my favorite riff in ANY Opeth song, and it goes on for a about minute before the song goes into a new series of memorable transitions, eventually settling into a nice steady riff with Mikael's harsh growls.Read more ›
Advent (9/10): Some great riffs (of course, it's Opeth, after all). It's really quite amazing how they can go from one great riff to the next. Almost any other band would waste all their songwriting potential using as many good riffs in one song as Opeth uses, but they have not yet had a shortage of creativity on this front. The first acoustic section makes use of some really complicated timing, and seamlessly leads into another heavy section. There are parts where the transition between the heavy and the light is so beautiful that you have to take notice of it. Very few bands out there can do this so well. There is a lot more acoustic on this song than on the previous album, and it is a very good thing Opeth decided to go this road with their music.
Night and Silent Water (8/10): There's a (too?) short part right near the beginning which has both a heavy guitar and an acoustic playing at once. The effect is pretty cool. There's another awesome acoustic section towards the middle of the song. The ending whispering is very different, but it works.
Nectar (7/10): As far as I am concerned, the opening riff to this song is one of Opeth's classic 10 riffs. It just has this great, powerful, gallop to it. The rest of the song is decent, fairly standard Opeth fair. The change from the melodic section into the final riff will get you by surprise.Read more ›
