Independent as a hog on ice
Agreed! I love Hope Leaves (and all of Damnation), but otherwise their ballads are usually not my cup of tea.Voting in this survivor has me realizing that I don't care for the Opeth ballads all that much. Hope Leaves, Burden, Harvest, etc all seem to be fan favorites which are definitely cool songs but I probably wouldn't put on an Opeth top ten. I want the riffs!
That's probably my favorite from that album due to its emotive nature, with the first three tracks being my next picks. But that album in general is strong, and easily the best nu-Opeth album.I also don't really get the hype around Faith in Others. It's a cool song but again, at least 3 or 4 other tracks off that album alone are preferable to me.
