The sister album to Deliverance, this album sees Opeth in a completely different light. This is completely a progressive rock album... no traces of death metal to be found here. This is mostly acoustic and clean guitars, beautiful, flowing, elegant solos, Martin Lopez' amazing, world-music influenced percussive skills, and Mikael's beautiful, rich singing voice, and Steve Wilson (Porcupine Tree), producing, and lending his hand with keyboards, especially with a trademark progressive rock staple, the mellotron. This is a beautiful, atmospheric album, and a wonderful juxtaposition to the previous Deliverance album. Another one of my absolute favorites of Opeth. HIGHLY recommended. Music For Nations.
