The move to a more electric sound has all kinds of potential.

Two very good albums before 20yo.


I definitely agree with you there on all points. In the first album, it almost seemed like he was more passionate and pure as a songwriter, whereas the songs here seem more dry and unemotional at times, while technically better pieces. I hope his third effort balances the two effectively.

The title for Heritage was influenced by the well-known Swedish jazz pianist (whom I would wholeheartedly recommend) Jan Johansson and Swedish folk music. In interviews he seems to display a dislike for the fact that many of Opeth's fans only think of them as a death metal band because of their early records. I can't remember the exact wording he used, but he's said that Opeth isn't a death metal band nor a progressive rock band, Opeth is just Opeth. He has always seen Opeth as a band without boundaries.

 

Edit: Ghost Reveries currently stands as my favorite Opeth album as well. I own it on vinyl which should speak for that fact.

 


...

 

Moving on to this due to all the Opeth talk.

Opeth - Heritage

 

Edit: I actually think Heritage might have to potential to become my new favorite Opeth album with a few more listens if it continues to grow on me as it has over the past couple of years. I think it is a very substantial body of work as far as Opeth is concerned. Might have to look into acquiring it on vinyl.

 

Also totally agree here. I probably should not have tried to over-simplify the explanation by way of comparisons to Pink Floyd or Sabbath. Opeth really has their own sound. From the first time a friend at work introduced me to them, I have been impressed (and I remain impressed). From time to time I return that favor and recommend them to someone else at work, which usually follows an explanation of why I have such an elaborate music setup on my desk...

 

And now, for something different... Haggard. Quite an interesting mixture of genre's...

Currently listening to this, 'Zeichnungen des Patienten O.T.'

 

I had a chuckle as I browsed the 'net for the cover art - the Wikipedia entry for the album states that " Trouser Press critic David Sheridan pointed out the group's drifting towards conventionality, writing, "the title track even has a chord progression!" (his emphasis)."

 

Chord progression. Who would've thought. :)

Bugseed is ace. It's great to know that there are producers like him and Pigeondust stepping up to fill the void left by Nujabes.
