Somehow they're just out of reach of getting to that Opeth level of genius in melding together heavy -> soft parts -> build up -> heavy again. I think the guitar noodling goes on a little too much at times, and would prefer a more cohesive feel.

I still love BTBAM, and listen to Colors all the time. Amazing album. The formula can be improved though, and I'm hoping they figure out how to do it.
