Well, we shouldn't have been surprised. Akerfeldt had been trying to warn us, in his vague roundabout way, saying how their next album would be "different" and 'not what you expect." Son of a bitch got that right. On Heritage, he indulges his love of obscure '70's prog-rock and jazz to levels never before heard on any previous Opeth records. I'm not just complaining because it's not death-metal all the way. I actually really enjoyed their mostly acoustic Damnation album from 2003, and look forward to the mellow moments on their other discs. That's what I like best about Opeth, the jarring contrasts between heavy and soft. Heritage is just plain boring. A few songs show promise, but NONE of them are able to hold my interest. Easily my least favorite Opeth release, by far.
