I’ve been focused on “Heritage” and trying to get all of its nuances. It’s still quite an achievement for Opeth to take a significant sonic detour and still have the traditional Opeth style without distorted guitars and growls. I’m not sure if I love it, but I do like it a lot.

Will be listening to “The Hunter” this week – will comment on that next week.

Opeth – Heritage
Animals As Leaders – “Isolated Incidents"
Pearl Jam – PJ20 Official Soundtrack
Queen – Jazz
The Cars – Candy-O
Ozzy Osbourne – No Rest for the Wicked

Never listened to Opeth. Figured they were horribly boring. Do want to hear the new Mastodon though.

DPTH-Gates of slumber are certainly one of my favorite retro metal type bands.

Headbang, yes, that IS a time classic, no doubt.

Sorry to say, Mark, but Opeth is HARDLY boring, bite your tongue. cjk, I think the new album is really, really adventurous and still comes out sounding like an Opeth record with more trad prog in it.

Dpth, keep on powering. Glad you got around those Candlemass albums. Too many people stuck their noses up at them because of no Messiah, but both are great albums.

Back to Mark, oh you poor man, listening to The Elder and Vincent demos. Almost makes me forgive you for the Opeth remark. Almost.
