This album is an excellent work. It is, perhaps, a bit hard to digest at first, but this is true with pretty much all Opeth and that's the way I like it. Relatively recently, Opeth lost it's drummer and second guitarist, and those positions have now been filled. The new guitarist is killer and the drummer is amazing, though different than the old one. This album is definitely one of experimentation and may take a few listens to fully appreciate. As for me, I love it. The Lotus Eater stands out as incredibly inventive. Also of note - this album marks a return to the grittiness of their past albums something I felt was lacking from the more polished Ghost Reveries. So if you want to delve into an album of beauty, complexity and experimentation, all the while banging your head, then this is definitely an album to get. Opeth is not a stagnant band.

This release marks the most dramatic change in the band's history.The departure of Martin Lopez and Peter Lindgren left a vacuum that was filled by Martin Axenrot and Fredrik Akesson. The new band members are both very talented, but very different than their predecessors. Martin Axenrot's style is a more traditional Heavy Metal/Hard Rock variety and Fredrik Akesson style is that of a traditional shredder. For this release, Mikael Akerfeldt decided to take an unusual turn and write material that sounds more traditional than on any of the band's prior releases. The fact that a good portion of the music is written in major keys adds to the perception. Listen closely and you will hear everything from "Acid Rock" to "Folk" coming out of your speakers. It just seems to me that the band takes this release in too many different directions. Unlike the band's prior efforts, there is an uncharacteristic lack of cohesiveness here.
