This has been done: Ranking Opeth

My 2-cents. Based on current planetary position. Subject to change.
My Arms, Your Hearse

Has always been and will always be the best one for me. Gritty, folksy, completely lovable record. All tracks rule, I could not start picking highlights.

That drumming, that jazziness, a lot of weird twists and turns, but when it clicks it does so big time. Did not like it when it came out but now it's my second favourite and has been for some time. I do not see that changing any time soon, either.
Ghost Reveries

Probably their most well-known style, great feels, diversity, some all-time favourite jams. First three tracks are superb and Hours of Wealth is one of my favourite Opeth-tracks.

Great one, if you're in the mood there's nothing better. Beautiful passages, nice riffing, tons of atmosphere. None of the tracks are weak.

Underrated (if there is such a thing as an underrated Opeth album), nice diversity. Gets the blood pumping!

Who would have known? In recent years it kept climbing up the ranks, and now it's in 6th place? Whaaaat? Some seriously lovable jams (t/t, A Fair Judgement, Wreath), but By The Pain I See In Others just doesn't do it for me.

Great one, has some of my favourite tracks (The Twilight Is My Robe, Forest Of October). Rawer and more old-skool sounding, which is obviously great.
Blackwater Park

Used to be my favourite, my first Opeth, but can't stand Harvest anymore and I might have overplayed the record in general. T/t is probably my favourite Opeth track though, does everything right.
Still Life

Ha, shocking, I know. Some absolute bangers, duh, but the others are just plain better in my opinion. Plus I've always disliked Moonlapse Vertigo and recently Face Of Melinda has started to bore me. Love the solos in White Cluster though, and The Moor and Godhead's Lament are amazing oviously. Goes to show that they just have such a great discog if this is in 9th place!
Pale Communion

Has a few nice jams, really love River, but sadly ditched all Heritage's awesomeness for a more generic and less jazzy approach.

Never really liked this one as much as the others, almost don't listen to any of it anymore. Not a good sign. Some nice tracks, but overall slipped into 11th place.

I want to love it but I don't (yet?). A bit boring and I hate the production. Hopefully the next one will be better.
