Remastered and lengthened version of Sleep's opus "Jerusalem". Also includes an unreleased song, recorded live in the studio.

Staff review by

Sleep's Dopesmoker is the sonic equivalent of powerwalking a marathon through a valley filled with green Jello.

Like trying to hike 26.2 miles through lime-colored molasses, listening to this album in its entirety is slow going, lasts forever, and is a physically and mentally draining endeavor. While this album has only one actual new studio track on it, that one track happens to be a longer listen than sitting through than a double header of Slayer's Reign In Blood followed by Divine Intervention. It chugs along, and just keeps going and going and going. I imagine you can probably figure out the symbolism behind "green."

Rating: 9 Got to about the 20 minute mark and quit...

Too much to handle.

Rating: 9 Well, I made it through.

Man that was a journey, but it was worth it. I started to love the vocals too.

Turns out this is pretty decent.
