|This has to be one of the best CD's of all time in any genre of any music in the history of the world. It has everything that makes music good. It is new and original yet still Opeth-ian in nature. The music is such that you might catch yourself so completely absorbed in it that you have forgotten to breathe. The instruments and production are flawless. What more can be said? This CD transcends the boundaries of music and drugs and acts as both. All that is required is your patience.

|Very good but not their best work. Still better than 990f whats out there today.

|I agree with both comments above. Musicians of this magnitude inspire me to play guitar and sing my heart out. I could listen to this CD everyday!

|that swedish sense of melody and sorrow, combined with latin flare and passion... opeth is the ultimate band in any genre of music. i'm blown away by every new release. opeth is a bottomless well of amazing talent and metal mastery.

|Opeth hah go to hell

|Hmmm.. I'm A huge Opeth fan and all of their work before this is somewhere between a 9.5 and a 10. However, it almost sounds like they made this album to appeal to exhausted Numetal cliches. Not terrible, plenty of power chords to boot and not much else but at least they did't sell out. In fact I was happy to hear them return as they should be with the release of Deliverance but Blackwater Park...

|Man these guys are all over the place,but in a good way. This is one that you have to Really listen to.They go from death to jazz to an ambient form of Music,All with Precision...Those guys must listen to Everything(thats cool).8/10.

|AMAZING album. Not their exact best, but still, you can't be disappointed with these guys. 'Blackwater Park' (the song)is beautiful and 'Patterns in the Ivy' is one of my favorite Opeth songs of all times. Definately an 9.5 out of 10.

|I love the cover art- some of the most beautiful work i have ever seen in my life. Opeth are probably one of my favorite death metal bands, along with Hate Eternal, Death, Obituary, Morbid Angel, the list goes on.

|Blackwater Park finds Opeth at their creative peak and commercial breakthrough, relatively speaking. This was when a (somewhat) wider metal audience first becameaware of Opeth's signature sound: long-ass songs, mixing death growls and wistful crooning, layers of crushing riffs and classical acoustic picking, brutality and delicacy. To be sure, Opeth's brand of death metal is nothing like the blastbeats0and-blood forumula of other bands, as they are more like extremely heavy prog-metal with death vocals and jazz and folk flourishes. Words like "ornate" and "elegiac" come to mind. The mood can best be summed up in one song title: bleak.

|One of the most recognized efforts of the band as far as i'm concerned ...tracks 1,3(nice semi acoustic song) & 8 are in my book...80/100
