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

Edit: Went with the former.

4: Damnation
5: Deliverance
6: My Arms, Your Hearse

10: Morningrise
(11 Heritage ?? not listed)

May 2017:
01. 2001 Blackwater Park (will probably win)

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.

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!

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

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.

To put this less mildly: late/current Opeth sucks.
No, Pale Communion is one of the best albums of their career. The only Opeth album that legitimately "sucks" is Heritage.
 

Mosh

And I should contemplate this change

All Opeth albums are awesome, even the bad ones.

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

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.
