Thumbs up: +15
My ranking of all Opeth's studio albums. Blackwater Park and Morningrise are the best albums in my opinion. My least favourites are Damnation and Heritage. Damnation is one heck of an album, though I'm not overly fond of its style. Lastly, I think Heritage is a little underwhelming for an Opeth release, but it's still good. I included ratings as well as the best songs (my personal favourites) of each album.

Here are links to the full albums (Grooveshark):
1. Opeth - Blackwater Park
2. Opeth - Morningrise
3. Opeth - Still Life
4. Opeth - Ghost Reveries
5. Opeth - Orchid
6. Opeth - My Arms, Your Hearse
7. Opeth - Deliverance
8. Opeth - Watershed
9. Opeth - Damnation
10. Opeth - Heritage

'Bleak' is Imo the most diverse and most musically pleasing Opeth song, It's my favorite Opeth song. About the song 'Blackwater Park', the song up until 6:00 is PERFECT, it's like a fucking euphoria, but after that It's a shitfest of uninteresting riffs and overused riffs, also the vocals suck in that half while in the first they are spot on and don't tire your ears.

By the way, what are your thoughts on 'Bleak' ? I never see anyone saying it's their favorite song from that album..


Disagree about Blackwater Park, the song is great. As I said, I only dislike the lack of clean vocals. Only growls is boring for Opeth, just like only clean vocals is boring as well (as many songs on Heritage show, but that's not Heritage's only problem).

Bleak is my favourite song on the album after The Drapery Falls, indeed a brilliant and haunting song with insane atmosphere. Let's just say both of those songs are my favourites on the album. Btw, as I said before (in these comments), Still Life would've been my favourite album if it wasn't for two relatively boring songs (you know which ones I'm talking about, it's pretty obvious) that are on the album.

Totally agree with your top two, not seen many people rate morningrise that high-a lot of people seem to hate it. I guess it's their love or hate album.

You agree with only my top 2?

Morningrise is definitely a masterpiece. As I've said more than once, I regard it basically as an improved Orchid, seeing as those two albums have a very similar style. But actually I never heard a lot of people hating/disliking that album. Ghost Reveries seems to be much more of love/hate kind of album. Opinions are way more divided in case of that one, I think.

i agree with more than the top two, but i commented on them specifically as i was to talk about morningrise. maybe the reviews ive seen have been the rare examples of people against it. maybe they just hate opeth in general as a lot of people really dont like them.
