  • Watershed is a major transition of Opeth, and a long expected farewell to progressive death metal and gothic atmospheres for Akerfeldt’s musical vision, the musical influences are more far reaching than ever before, with some of the most brutal death metal in tracks like “Heir Apparent,” to bouncy folk sections in “Hessian Peal” and “The Lotus Eater.”
  • Another grower.
  • Rediscovered it after over 5 years of non-listening and first reaction was: OH GOD, HOW THE FUCK I COULD FORGET ABOUT THIS??? The best Opeth album along Blackwater Park and The Roundhouse Tapes (and maybe even better than aforementioned two). Every track has something to offer (some cool guitar solos courtesy of Fredrik Akesson), but my personal favourites are: Coil, The Lotus Eater, Burden and Hessian Peel. It's perfect connection between old Opeth (which I love) and new Opeth (steaming pile of turd IMO). If you don't know this buy or download it immediately.
  • i didnt like it so much for the first time i've heard it, but definitely this has become my favourite Opeth album. All songs are perfect, i really dont know how to order them from the best to the least best...probably: the lotus eater>>>hessian peel=burden=porcelain heart>coil=hex omega=heir apparent (?)
  • This one is definitely a grower. Absolutely fantastic album.
  • Quickly becoming my favourite Opeth album.
  • Well, I like it. But then I don't blow a gasket when a band I like incorporates new influences and sounds into their music. Plus I happen to like prog-rock a lot, so that helps.
  • Great Album!
  • A rare case of an awesome transition album
