Agreed with Jamie, Hax is the best song.

This didn't do much for me when it was released but I've actually been digging it pretty hard for the past couple weeks.

Famine is a structural mess but it's probably one of my favorites here regardless. That giant stoner riff is just so good.

Famine is probably my least favourite but it's still pretty good.

It's definitely the most blatant example of the awkward transitions. I just enjoy the individual sections enough to overcome it

"Yeah, Famine is a perfect example of that. It's a cut and paste mess of a track and really sums up the album"

You could say the same about a lot of great albums if you use the worst track as an example.

Yeah, seeing as though Sound Awake doesn't prog at all.

Proggers prog differently down under. You just gotta be upside down to appreciate it.

Also, as much as I like and respect Ã…kerfeldt (SEE! I even take the time to spell his name right!), he kinda comes off like a douche in this interview about Heritage.

Yeah, but he's playing the whole, "Oh, I just don't care what people think" card which is either a lie, because all artists want to be appreciated, or if he REALLY thinks that then he's going down the same road as Mustaine and his "everything I play is pure gold" schtick, and we all know where that leads.

Well he doesn't really care, why do you think he veered off into a direction that HE and the band wanted to go in?

maybe he was just satisfied that he made something he really liked

in terms of having others appreciate it he's had that with the metal albums for almost 20 years so i think after all that time he would be ok do just do something he really liked, and Heritage is something he has wanted to do for many years.

Akerfeldt can do what he wants I'll still love everything he does.

As long as he keeps making good music, that is. Honestly, the problem with Heritage is that it's pretty boring in parts and often drags. Watershed had the same problem too, but at least it had the added dynamic of teh mehtulz to shake things up and keep things interesting, and it isn't as well written, IMO, as Damnation.

The second half of Folklore is actually pretty rad and could have made for a classic Opeth track.
