this album should be required to enter the human race. I was shocked to see that the average customer rating wasn't 5 stars, ...hmm, i can see absolutely nothing wring with any song on this cd.
The opener, "in the mist she was standing" is breathtaking, near the end, it is completely mystifying and beautiful. This is how metal should be.
"The apostle in triumph":classic, violins, rough throat piecring vocals, similar to every Opeth song. but this one stands out with the violins.
"Forest Of October": around 7 munites into this is wheen the guitar solo sarts.. it is not for those with weak emotions, for it is electrifying and gorgeous.
"under the weeping moon":least favorite track, gets kinda long and drawn out, ironically shorter than the other epics on this CD. the experiemntalism in this track still is heavenly.
every song on this CD deserves recognition, "twilight is my Robe"...softer than the other epics, and...beautiful bass.
THIS CD SHOULD TURN INTO A REQUIREMENT FOR ALL HUMANS TO LISTEN TO, so that they can see how good music can sound
LONG LIVE OPETH! \m/
