The Mystery Of Time
On the first listen I was disappointed. After 6 years without a release I could only expect pure magic. The record slowly grew on me, and now I really like it. It's obviously not Temple of Shadows II and Angra without Aquiles Priester doesn't sound the same. It isn't a departure from their "classical" sound, but it does include new elements. Definitely not an album to headbang, but a great work.
In Live Concert at the Royal Albert Hall
With such a great selection of songs, the rating could only be 5. Songs from Blackwater Park that I didn't like that much really got me on this one (5 and 6). It is just amazing how good it sounds live, without any need of overdubs or other editing. Mikael's clean vocals are brilliant, and so are the little speeches he gives. Old songs sound great (specially Advent, one of my favourites). They also deal really well with the technical difficulties, and the crowd is far better than in the last DVD. So many reasons why this is great. A word to summarize all that greatness: Opeth.
