The CD includes, as a bonus track, a previously unreleased live version of "The Leper Affinity". The DVD features a brand new 5.0 audio mix of the original album plus a previously-unseen documentary, The Making of Blackwater Park. With a running time of just under 35 minutes, it was filmed in the summer of 2000 at Studio Fredman in Sweden and features interviews with the band and clips of them recording.

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.
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.Read more ›

This is the newer Blackwater Park LP Vinyl. Same Stuff. More goodies. Blackwater Park still the epitome of what makes Opeth.Published 13 months ago by Richarde
Very well recorded, a must for the Opeth fans. Too bad it didn't come with the DVD like in the advertisment description.Published on Dec 1 2012 by max

This Legacy Edition loses a star on the rating for 2 reason: 1) The price, 2) That annoying sticker is on the actual booklet over the cover art. Read morePublished on Sept. 11 2010 by Chris Iliou
This band is simply the greatest ever. I recently started listing to metal and I love Avenged Sevenfold and Opeth because both bands have great singers, guitar riffs, solos and... Read morePublished on Dec 24 2005
This to me is Opeth's darkest album. It also has the best acoustic melodies I've ever heard. Every song is solid, if not epic. Read morePublished on July 16 2004 by bydo empire
