The resident reactionary recalcitrant
If it doesn´t start too soon, I might have some time to get me work into the wonderous world of Opeth.
But 13 studioalbums is quite alot and I only heard 2 of them.
It's a lot, but once you go
Also, considering that Kid hasn't voted but intends to participate, with you included it would mean there's only one other participant necessary. And I honestly doubt the Detective will let us down, amirite? (he liked that post of mine, so I'm expecting his vote "yes" above as well).
This is looking really good.
Oh, I also intend to update my Opeth on Maidenfans document - I haven't managed to include everything that happened since (the first edition was 11th September 2019), including all the comments from the Greatest metal album cup, but I still plan on doing it as soon as I'm going to be able.
So in case youse wanted to be reminded of what you thought about and said about Opeth in general, the particular albums or individual songs (primarily) in the previous Survivors and in the Opeth thread, categorised and summarised, please, may this be of use to you.
Quoting from the original post:
So, I finally finished the "MaidenFans on Opeth" project I mentioned in the previous post. So in case you wanted to re-listen to their discography (it’s September already!) and have comments regarding particular song or album ready at hand, you might use this. Yep, it’s 170 pages/88 067 words long and Word says I've been working on it for 992 minutes - that's 16 1/2 hours (I began on August 13th). I feel so fucking nerdy
EDIT: Okay, you can't upload Word docs, so I converted it into a PDF. If anyone wanted the original docx file feel free to write me a PM.
First there is some general discussion on the "autumness" of Opeth, seasons and music etc. Not that much related, but I wanted it there. Then there’s general Opeth discussion and various thoughts on the band in general, then the main section – the "commented discography" of sorts, organised according to the albums, first general album comments and then comments for every song, in rough chronological order (so you might even see the development of certain opinions, possibly?). Even live albums are included. In the end you get some more various thoughts on the bands, lists of top 5 songs etc. Oh, and concert reviews.
I wanted to keep everything substantial (and also a lot of stuff that isn’t), so I don’t think anything important is missing. When in doubt, I put it there. I also kept the initial reactions, anticipations etc. for PC, Sorc and ICV.
I’ve already spent way too much time on this, so please excuse any mistakes (for there are bound to be many), especially from the chronological point of view; I really have neither the time nor the energy to revisit all the threads again an correct it.
