One of the best Opeth albums for sure. Mikael Akerfeldt is a true genius and amazing musician. Perfect mix of progressive rock and death metal. Best songs are The Drapery Falls, Harvest, Bleak and the 12 minute title track. Definitely recommend this album

I'd heard the rave reviews of Opeth for years, so I finally decided to give them a go. Not knowing where to start, I picked the Royal Albert Hall dvd, where they play this album in its entirety all the way through. So naturally, I was completely blown away and had to buy this album immediately.
It covers so much ground musically, it's hard to describe, but since it involves some death metal, it automatically gets categorized like that. But it's a hell of a musical journey, extremely vast in scope, that'll force you to experience almost your full range of emotions and leave you on a high when finished. Even days later, a song or piece of a song will be stuck in your head and still bring a tear to your eye it's so beautiful.
About the sticker on the cover - yes it's directly on the cover, but it's easily removed with some acetone(nail polish remover), which takes off the sticker without damaging the cover in any way whatsoever, I promise.

Blackwater Park is an album of amalgamation and perfection, not just for Opeth but for metal as a whole. Until this point, Opeth had been carving out a niche of their own in the world of heavy music, with releases like the stunning 'My arms, Your hearse' or 'Still Life'. But Blackwater Park truly is a 'monumetal mark' to quote the title track, not just in terms of a vision fully realised, bit in terms of finally eliminating any barriers that might be left to the band to take their music onto a new level.
What is immediately apparent upon listening to the opener 'The Leper Affinity' is not just the seamlessness, the perfected ebb and flow of the music, but the incredible comfort with which this supremely talented band approaches music of extreme complexity. Much of this crystal clear, coherent sound can be laid, I believe, at the door of genius producer Steven Wilson, of Porcupine Tree fame. The vocal harmonies have certainly bear his influence, and by God, this record sees some of the best vocal parts they've yet laid down on tape, from the hypnotic mid section of 'Bleak' to the heartbreaking chorus of 'Harvest'. 'Blackwater park' sees the band stretching its creative muscles like never before. Each song has its own distinctive stamp, and each is filled with reams of immaculate ideas and intelligent execution. 'Bleak' has a unique, middle Eatern tinged riff, 'Harvest' evokes sepia coloured autumn days perfectly, while 'The Drapery Falls' rides in on a lilting, melancholy melody that returns in its conclusion and draws tears to my eyes. But the culmination of the record comes in the practically transcendent title track, which surely merits a high water mark for what can be done with the metal genre.

Whats there to really say? this is the BLACKWATER PARK....opeths worldwide breakthrough album!!! theres a reason why this album holds such praise. this could very well be their best album, although personal preference might say otherwise. IF YOU HAVE NEVER HEARD OF OPETH BEFORE, THIS IS YOUR GATEWAY ALBUM. enough said. They somehow combined the ability to write masterpiece songs that are super accessible without selling out on some generic music songwriting. That takes serious skill to pull something off like that! which is why this is a world class album and at a very high level among them. songs like the drapery falls has the most simple yet awe-inspiring introductions, while a song like a dirge for november holds such a beautiful and sorrowful and powerful feel to it that is very rare in a death metal song. and lets not forget probably opeths BEST SONG EVER MADE, the last track itself...the monster of a track that this is.....wow.....the song Blackwater park is something to behold. throughout this album, they keep this ominous eerie feel like the album artwork suggests throughout the whole album, with strange noises that fit perfectly......as well as the vocals and all instruments. they had Steven wilson produce this album and he certaintly helped opeth achieve this fantastic sound with his genius mind as well. If you dont have this album, YOU NEED TO GET THIS ALBUM RIGHT NOW

If you have never heard "death metal" before, or are tired of the weakening power of better nu-metal bands, then I have a band for you. Opeth. That is all you need to know. This is the cure I needed after hearing all the junk that has been coming out in main stream rock. This is my first Opeth album, but let me say that even while I'm at war fighting for the greatest country in the world, I have really enjoyed listening to this band. Pure talent through and through. And that is in all aspects from songwriting, to actual singing and orchestration of their music. Yah sure, they growl. But yah know, you can still read the words in the CD cover if you can't figure out what they're saying. But Opeth incorporates actual singing into all their songs. It is excellent. So, put down the junk like Limp Bizkit, new Staind, Stone Sour, and all that junk that Best Buy says is good. Trust a soldier, this is good. Very very good. You will not be disappointed. When I redeploy, I'm buying the rest of their albums. Airborne!
