Thanks fr33convict for fucking up the page.

And now I really regret buying Blackwater Park two weeks ago.

Even though I already have BP, I think I might actually buy the legacy edition solely for the artwork.

This will fit nicely next to my 2 vinyl copies and CD that I already own of this album.

I'm definitely buying this, even though I already own it. Only downside is that they should've had the two bonus tracks instead of a live version of lepper affinity.

Not really happy with this. I know this is Koch Records trying to cash in and I like the original artwork a bit better. Just ordered this on vinyl as well so I will pass on it.

Ummm I don't think so. I know they had special editions of MAYH, Morningrise and Orchid with bonus tracks, but I don't think they ever did that with anything past Still Life when they switched labels.

The next step for this would to re-re-release it as the Blackwater Park box set. it would include the same album over ALL recording mediums including cassette, 8-track, Dethklok Water Tracks and a voucher for digital download. Anyone have any fictional mediums to include?

Also lol @ "new liner notes from frontman Mikael Akerfeldt himself."

AKERFELDT HIMSELF.

Guys the fucking frontman why is that even noteworthy

^I mean obviously they're gonna say everything this includes when they're trying to sell it. It just seemed to me like they were saying "Akerfeldt himself" like it was a big deal to get something related to Akerfeldt on there even though it's an Opeth release.

Lol Wizard. But I can still appreciate an album art for an album I don't like. But I don't even dislike opeth. I just can't get into them. I actually really want to, I've had a full ipod for probably over a year. Every time I add something I have to delete but BWP has stayed on there. Maybe there's a better place to start?

@nychicano- I'm lolin at Tomotron. But fair enough. The whole liner notes by Akerfeldt thing is totally reasonable anyways. It just caught my attention yesterday for some reason.

I've never really liked any more than four of the songs off Blackwater Park. I already own it. The album art is like most other Opeth album art. Disinterest.

Will probably buy just because of the Album Art. Fuck, I want that sitting on my table. Really disappointing that there aren't any bonus tracks or completely re-mastered tracks. I got so excited before I clicked on this.

Damn it, I have Still Life Remastered as an Itunes purchase, I wanted it immediately, I couldn't wait to get a hard copy. Kind of wish I had now.

Edit: I wanted to hear an all Mikael studio version of Bleak or something at least. Not that I have a problem with the original, but damn it I want stuff I haven't heard! It's one of my favorite songs ever.
