I never once said heritage is a progressive master piece, I enjoy it for what it is, and Dirge For November is a ZZZfest apart from the intro, Funeral Portrait is an abomination, Harvest is gay, The Drapery Falls is a ZZZZfest and Bleak is way too long.



Heritage is totally refreshing.

Opeth needs more songs like Harvest. That tune is just hauntingly beautiful.

If you think Bleak is too long then that's all I need to know about how much you know. It's 9 min

length is the perfect length to get all of its songwriting ideas across and is x100 more cohesive than

anything on this album.



Bleak is too long yet the title track isn't. LOL okay then.

Blackwater Park is a snooze fest for the most part, whereas this is consistently interesting regardless of whether it's a rip off or not.

Now you're being thick and assuming things you know nothing about. Bleak is too long for the song, I can listen to very long songs and not get bored, as long as they're done right I.E. Thick as a Brick (you) by Jethro Tull.



Maybe I should have said it's too long for what it is, it would've been better if they cut the whole 'Devious movements...' section out.

How does the devious movements part not make sense? It's such a natural progression from where the song was going. The transfers are smooth and at no point does it feel forced. The transfer back into the first heavy section of the song is one of the best parts of the entire album and gives the song such an epic ending. Not at one point is there any random idea thrown in which throws the song off from where its supposed to go.



Famine has so many unnecessary parts that I could list if I wanted to yet you are telling me Bleak is too long? I don't even....



Remember kids, a random flute solo over a black sabbath riff is so progressive!!!...



Even if it makes no fucking sense. But hey, as long as it sounds cool right?



But whatever, we'll never agree so what's the point.

The point you're missing is that I do agree with you with regards to this not being as progressive as people make out. What I do find is that it is a more enjoyable listen than BWP, it doesn't matter whether it's trve prog, or not. And that progression in Bleak might make sense, but I hate the vocal harmonies and it just doesn't sound good IMO.
