"Pale Communion" is brilliant, maybe better than "Heritage" !

Eh. It's nice, but it's nothing special. The music is just like that of innumerable other bands, many of which have done it better.

I think this is the best thing they've done since Blackwater Park. Speaking of BWP, fuck yesssss those Steven Wilson harmonies are back!

Wow, I must say I am pleasantly surprised by this album. I've enjoyed Heritage very much and this seems like a perfect follow-up. I'm enjoying the overall sound very much, especially the clean production, Mikael's singing is fucking great here and as said above, the harmonies are very, very cool. Well, gonna be listening to this one a lot, that's for sure. And I think I'll go to see them here in Prague in October.

Thanks for posting this. His voice gets better and better.
The intro was almost funky LOL.

Interesting to have the bass panned to the right a little. I don't know how to feel about, because on one hand I'm glad that the mix is doin something different and it reminds me of old jazz records, but it feels so weird, especially with headphones on. Feels like a weighted scale that's in favor to the right side.

I'm sure many have done it before, byeah. Didn't really like the lyrics to well. Dropped out 2:45 into it, just didn't really strike me. Cool intro

I'm not too persuaded to listen to their new albums with the singles they release, they're kind of getting stale. Not really interesting, just kind of generic prog. Sounds like new Dream Theater just with Mikael singing. Heritage was pretty cool, I enjoyed it, but beyond that, they kept getting a little cheesier and not really bringing something new up.

BUT. I haven't completely given Pale Communion and this new one entire listens. They of course have some great passages of technical prowess that are pretty cool, but it doesn't encaptivate me throughout the standard power chord verses that have maybe a changing time signature because it's prog and the rest of the songs.

Watershed is fucking great though, god damn it The Lotus Eater is an amazing song.

Watershed is a top five Opeth album all the way. I've only heard the 3 singles off the new one on youtube. They're ok, but I going to reserve judgement until I pick up a copy tomorrow to listen to on a real system.

I wasnt sold by the singles either.
Never understood why pale communion got such high praise. Heritage and damnation were both better imo.

One of the new tracks sounds like it could be a jethro tull cover.

Brand spankin new fan here, was randomly down a youtube rabbit hole about a month ago of acts that sounded like Porcupine Tree's "Fear of a Blank Planet," completely unaware of the connection between the two bands, when I thought maybe I'd enjoy some Opeth. 

 

Listened to Ghost Reveries and it was basically love at first verse's riff. 

 

Still Life went on to take that love even further, had a few days there where I couldn't stop Godhead's Lament from running through my mind. 

 

Blackwater Park is still just ok after a couple of listens, has its moments, but hasn't really grown on me yet.

Really wanted to like Pale Communion with the prog label it carried, but it was just a boring listen for the most part.

 

Still, Still Life and Ghost Reveries have become an obsession in recent weeks, have a bunch of  their earlier albums ready to go whenever I feel like it, and I may or may not report my thoughts on said albums.  That is all have a nice night or morning, maybe afternoon/evening.
