Product Description

Product Description

2008 CD/DVD special digipack book edition including 5.1 surround mix of this classic 1999 Opeth album. The critically acclaimed Still Life features `Face Of Melinda' filmed live in London. The artwork has been re-worked by original designer Travis Smith. Still Life was Opeth's first outing for Peaceville. Blessed with renewed enthusiasm, the band delivered yet another flawless gem of an album. Like My Arms, Your Hearse before it, Still Life was recorded at Gothenburg's famous Studio Fredman under the watchful eye of engineer Fredrik Norddtrom.

5.0 out of 5 stars Metal Brilliance July 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
First off, before i start an impartial review, I LOVE OPETH. they are my favorite band of all time at this moment, and have been now for roughly 3 years. that being said....
With 2000 roughly approaching, everyone had in mind a good canidate for album of the millenium. Many would say its the Black Album, or the White Album, or even the Brown Album (Primus fans love it, do you?) but one album shines through all the gems and gives these classic albums a run for their money.
Am i calling Still Life album of the millenium? Nah. i dont have such a bold claim, i am a lover of too many bands and too much music to display such favoritism toward any one release that is to sum up a time that perhaps like Still Life, has seen rises and falls, just like the rough deathy raw Opeth so darkly contrasts the jazz and acoustic laden Damnation style Opeth.
You see both on Still Life, in seperate measures too. You can see how Opeth became legendary thanks to albums like Morningrise and My Arms Your Hearse because of the sheer brutality that songs like "The Moor" and "Moonlapse Vertigo" possess. But secondly you bear witness to an evolution of sorts, where Opeth finally decided that they would mold their craft with more experimental material. You can see it in the latter track, the jazz/rock riff at the 5 minute mark is not a new aspect of Opeth's winning formula, just one that they finagle around with a bit more.
Another aspect of this disc that cannot be overlooked is the sheer beauty in anguish that the two acoustic laden tracks, "Benightened" and "Face of Melinda" offer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Opeth - Still Life (Vinyl) Aug. 5 2013
By Joel Andrews TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
One of my all time favorite bands, waited a while to get this on LP, but it was well worth the wait! This is the album before their breakthrough Blackwater Park Album. You can definitely hear the shift in direction the band takes on this album. More jazzier components and heavy passages. Pair this with Blackwater Park and you have a nice transition from their earlier material to their opus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its beauty engulfs you like a cold breeze Nov. 7 2002
Format:Audio CD
Before I recommend this album, I suppose I should give a word of warning to Death Metal fans. Opeth is NOT the usual death Metal. If you plan on buying Still Life (or any other Opeth record) thinking its a normal standard death album, you will be disappointed - or maybe pleasantly surprised. Opeth is much, much more.
Still Life is a concept album, about a man who is banished from his village, only to return and find his lover already married. The songs vary from extremely heavy riffs with superb death growls (such as on Godhead's Lament) to sweet acoustic melodies with clean vocals (Benighted). That is to many people a surprise, since many cannot imagine death growls and clean vocals in the same song. Yet Opeth manage that, to create songs with an electrifying, and at times soothing, atmosphere. That said, the songs might take some getting used to, since the transition from heavy riffs to acoustic guitars (and vice versa) may be a surprise to some people. The cover art is pretty good and the booklet features lyrics to the songs as well as pictures of the band. The lyrics in my opinion are an excellent description of the feelings of the banished man, and are some of the best lyrics I have heard for a while.
A recommended buy for anyone who appreciates melodious art.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth it... with some work Sept. 11 2010
Format:Audio CD
This special edition will blow away your original cd version if you're willing to do some work. The original cd didn't sound very good at all and this package here comes with the album remastered, plus a dvd with a DTS surround mix. The remastered cd sounds horrible. It's very highly compressed so don't even bother taking it out of the case. The DVD is what makes this worthwhile, since it sounds pretty amazing on a surround setup, plus you can rip and downmix the DTS track to 2 channels yourself and create a superior mix. Wait, what was that? I can play around on my home computer with some free software and in a few hours make it sound better than the people who were paid to make it sound like crap? Yes. Absolutely. I was skeptical at first when I stumbled upon a forum discussion that recommended this but it's no joke. I've played the remastered cd and the downmix to several people and everyone agrees that the remaster sounds terrible in comparison. So if you're a fan of Opeth and this album, do yourself a favour and pick up this special edition, do a search for info on the downmix process and listen to it with a proper mix. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Nov. 15 2009
Format:Audio CD
As a huge Opeth fan, this album is definitely in my top 5, maybe even top 3.
The combination of death growls and clean singing vocals is something not very common in a "death metal" band, but with Mikael Åkerfeldt superb vocal work, layered over top his use of very dissonant chords, it makes for a superb album for any metal head.
The artwork on the package is some very gothic images centered around the concept of the album, a fantastic story about a man banished from his village for losing his faith. Lyrically Åkerfeldt tells the story through each song including themes of hate, fear, envy, and greif.
If you love metal and "foresty acoustics" as Mike adds in the booklet, then you will definitely love this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Second Favourite Opeth Album EVER!
This is a concept album and a sad one. Which is right up Opeth's alley. It's about a lost love named Melinda, of a man kicked out of town and so on. Read more
