Opeth's Watershed

Not a favorite Opeth release. It does have it's moments but overall it is not as good as any of their previous material.

I still love it and think it's a fucking masterpiece, even though it's not my favorite album by them.

Heir Apparent, Hessian Peel, and Lotus Eater? Sounds good to me.

Better than Ghost Reveries. There's NO middle ground, either I'm bored out of my mind or head-banging.

Are you trying to tell me that Burden isn't the best Opeth song in years?

1. How many years?

2. Ghost of Perdition > Burden

The Lotus Eater is up there, but Ghost of Perdition is one of their best songs, period.

I have to pick Ghost Reveries over Watershed. Here's my arguement:

1. Ghost Reveries has "Ghost of Perdition", "The Baying of the Hounds", "Beneath the Mire", "Harlequin Forest", and "The Grand Conjuration". Watershed has "Heir Apparent", "The Lotus Eater", and "Hessian Peel". So, the 'regular' Opeth songs on Ghost Reveries > Watershed.

2. Ghost Reveries has "Atonement", "Hours of Wealth", and "Isolation Years". Some people may find them boring, but as a huge Opeth fan, I find them all to be absolutely beautiful. Watershed has "Coil", "Burden", "Porcelain Heart", and "Hex Omega" as the 'slower' Opeth songs. I find "Burden" and "Porcelain Heart" to be the weakest section of the CD. These songs on Watershed definitely aren't their best, but they're still great.

3. Ghost Reveries flows better as an album. It is a journey. While I think Watershed is an excellent album, as an album, it just feels like there is something missing. I think drags a little bit, towards the middle. Then "Hessian Peel" comes and blows everything away, but then "Hex Omega" is up, and the album just ends.

4. Then again, every single Opeth album is a fucking masterpiece, so what's the point of arguing?
