still one of the best albums ever made  and I also gotta say that it is the MOST beautiful death metal (even tho its got some melodic and doomy influence) album ever recorded. this is near perfection (if Black Winter Day had that clean chorus one more time, i'd say that).
not sure what's on the re-release listed here from 2007; but i have the original album from 1994 and it's absolutely flawless. makes my hair stand on end every time i hear it. most albums nowadays don't have that type of uniqueness.... 'tales' is definitely one album that has stood the test of time! -[artist]Burning Caskets[/artist]
