Satisfied with the results?

  1. Yes

    44.4%
  2. No

    55.6%
  1. The Flash

    The Flash Dennis Wilcock did 9/11

    Torn between Still Life and Ghost Reveries, might need to give each a spin.

    Edit: Went with the former.

    Blackwater Park

    Hope you don't mind me doing this, but I was very curious and the outlook is pretty secure.

    January 2015:
    1: Blackwater Park
    2: Still Life
    3: Ghost Reveries
    4: Damnation
    5: Deliverance
    6: My Arms, Your Hearse
    7: Watershed
    8: Pale Communion
    9: Orchid
    10: Morningrise
    (11 Heritage ?? not listed)

    May 2017:
    01. 2001 Blackwater Park (will probably win)
    02. 2005 Ghost Reveries +1 (will probably be 2nd)
    03. 1999 Still Life -1
    04. 2003 Damnation
    05. 2002 Deliverance
    06. 2008 Watershed +1
    07. 2014 Pale Communion +1
    08. 1995 Orchid +1
    09. 1998 My Arms, Your Hearse -3
    10. 1996 Morningrise

    Well, there goes the best album.

    Neither of these are my Number One, but GR is slightly better than BWP.

    It's going to go to penalties at this rate.

    Ghost Reveries has some filler while Blackwater Park does not, so I'm voting for the former. Some may argue that Funeral Portrait is filler, but I'd call Atonement much more deserving of this label.

    Thanks to all the voters! I'm not satisfied with the results. Ghost Reveries over Still Life is heresy of the highest order and Orchid should be dead last. I can tolerate BWP winning though.
     
  12. The Flash

    The Flash Dennis Wilcock did 9/11

    Heritage being dead last ruins the results for me, even though my Top 6 is identical. Thanls for hosting!

    Glad to see GR and Heritage have climbed the ladder.

    Some increase of appreciation for early Opeth but still very underappreciated imo.

    Two out of three latest albums at the bottom is not exactly something a band would like I suppose, to put it mildly.

    To put this less mildly: late/current Opeth sucks.

    Thanks for hosting Night Prowler!

    No, every Opeth album is good. Their recent output being less good doesn't mean they're bad.
     
  15. Forostar

    Forostar Conjure the Death Star again

    Their last album is very bad I think. Also in absolute terms. Worst recent music by any band I like.
     
  16. MrKnickerbocker

    MrKnickerbocker clap hands

    Meh. Still Life should have won, but I can't argue with those three being in the top. Damnation doesn't need to be so high, PC should be way higher.

    No, Pale Communion is one of the best albums of their career. The only Opeth album that legitimately "sucks" is Heritage.

    All Opeth albums are awesome, even the bad ones.
     
  18. Forostar

    Forostar Conjure the Death Star again

    Pale Communion is very good indeed. Still: 2 out of latest 3 rated so low... even Metallica do better.
     
  19. MrKnickerbocker

    MrKnickerbocker clap hands

    To be fair, St. Anger and LuLu are far worse than anything Opeth has ever done.

    I don't know what's with all the Sorceress hate. I might actually like this one the most out of the last three albums, though I'd have to re-listen again to be sure.
