Format:Audio CD
I'm neither a hardcore metal head, nor a musical fascist like many other fans of this type of music, and my tastes in music span many genres. This however, is the best album I've ever heard. I won't claim to give this album any objective status in referring to it as "the best" as I'm not that blindly arrogant, so I'll settle for simply calling it my favourite album of all time.
Oddly though, I didn't think much of it upon first or even second listen, and it took a long time to grow on me - so don't be put off it you too hate it at first.
It is probably the least brutal of all Opeth's albums (apart from damnation) and paradoxically, for a "death metal" album, seems more an expression of pain than of anger and hatred. This is reflected by the vocals, which seem to fit perfectly with the music. Unlike the demonic growl of later albums, a weaker, higher pitched scream is used. I find the deep, death vocals of later albums to be a little bit intimidating, but the type found here seem to fit in perfectly with the haunting music (though they may take time getting used to.) They sound a little bit like a harsh, grating gust of wind, and lose their aggression once you adjust to their style, becoming painfully sad rather than intentionally hostile. Occasionally a soft whisper is also used, like in the hugely built up finale of "The night and the silent water," to great effect.
The clean vocals are also weaker than on subsequent albums. They are naïve, drift over you with less focus and direction, but again seem to fit Opeth's sound better. However, placed in perspective the vocals are a fairly minor element, as the majority of this album is instrumental.
Lyrically the album also impresses. The lyrics are fairly direct, and are not as vague and pretentious as they could be.

4.0 out of 5 stars awesome but... March 17 2013
Format:LP Record
Amazing record, pristine shape, but when it came to me it was all opened up as id someone had previously gone through it. Would have been much more satisfied if it arrived tightly sealed. Great delivery.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bon album Jan. 2 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
La qualité est au rendez-vous comme toujours, mais je ne crois pas que cet album se démarque des autres d'Opeth qui m'ont habitué à l'excellence. Un très bon album à se procurer tout de même.

5.0 out of 5 stars Opeth - Morning Rise (Vinyl Edition) July 17 2012
By Joel Andrews TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
Opeth - Morning Rise (Vinyl Edition)

If you have the chance to listen to Opeth or any other modern band on LP, you will be pleasantly surprised about how much richer it sounds then from the CD / MP3 versions. I know I have been! Another great release from a great band. Morning Rise is their sophomore release, equally brutal and intense and also epic prog rock, defiantly one for your collection if you like Opeth!

Well, what have I got to say, ok, well 6-7 years ago, when i was around 13, my friend introduced me to this band, but by that age I was into Slipknot and the likes... It took a bit of time for me to like this band, because after a while I started disliking Death/Black Metal, and eventhough today I really find Death Metal boring and repetitive and stupid, and lacks any sense and it's sjut bangbang and more bang well OPETH is JUST TOO incredible! First I think a song like BLACK ROSE IMMORTAL (my favortie of the band and my favorite song EVER) to be able to play for 20 minutes straight! Who can say they arent good, and jsut the way he can go from the "Demonic" screaming to that soft emotionnal voice is so touching! MORNINGRISE should be bought, it is a MUST for any METAL compilation, and for ppl that dont like metal, listen to a song like TO BID FAREWELL and let me know if it isnt jsut ... INCREDIBLE... the sound the voice, it's jsut, it gets to your heart and youw ant to cry and pour your eyes out! FACE OF MELINDA (on the STIIL LIFE album is just marvelous, i'd play it as a slow at a wedding!) and then the album DAMNATION, simply irrisistable, because it isnt even HEAVY METAL anymore, it shows to waht extent this band is a REAL band!
And yes I have to agree, the songs are SLLLLLOOOOOOWWWW, but what better then to lsiten to OPETH on a rainy day, a sunny day, a happy day, a depressing day? they have songs for any of my moods!
I own:
and right this afternoon, I am going to buy MY ARMS, YOUR HEARSE (hopefully the store has it!)
And to anyone out there looking for the greatest metal band ever, please at least take the tiem to downlaod a song or two, download : BLACK ROSE IMMORTAL, TO BID YOU FAREWELL, FOREST OF OCTOBER, THE DRAPERY FALLS, at least try ti, and then go BUY the CD's!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, Opeth has another 5 star album. May 25 2004
Format:Audio CD
Amid the gray atmosphere that envelops every song on this album is more magnificent songwriting from one of the most talented bands ever. First off, the bonus track really does sound horrible. I skip it altogether these days, focusing on the five songs that make up the main album. None of those songs clocks in under ten minutes, while "Black Rose Immortal" comes in at over twenty minutes. One would initially think that with such song lengths that there is a serious possibility the music could bog down and become uninteresting. There is not one point on this album that I would call boring or unfocused. This is Opeth, after all. This is a thoughtfully put together album with epic songcraft unveiled with purpose and skill.

5.0 out of 5 stars BUY IT! Overview of this Great Album
Opeth pulls through (as usual) with this masterpiece. From what I can makeout, the 5 songs were originally recorded in 1996, but the album was released in 2003. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars An improvement over the debut
This album is a marginal improvement over Opeth's very solid debut. Akerfeldt's voice sounds stronger, deeper, and he makes greater use of his melodic voice. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars I don't know, it just doesn't do it for me
I love Opeth. I was crushed when I couldn't see them when they toured near me, and I couldn't wait for Lamentations to come out. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars absolute perfection deserves more than 5 stars though
I have to say this is right now my favorite Opeth cd, and one of my 5 favorite cds in my collection. All Opeth cds are exellent, but this one just clicks with me the best. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars overrated by opeth fans, but underrated by the world
Even at this formative time in Opeth's career, they were still making some very unique, emotive metal. Read more
