    But they're becoming mainstream, so it's not cool anymore!
    Sharks are also mainstream but they're still cool, your argument is invalid.

    I'm not a hipster by the way.

    Rap is pretty cool but the most of the mainstream stuff sucks in my opinion.

    I think Rap is amazing, but how the culture is portrayed in general is pretty poor. Then that culture gets popular among people and it becomes accepted. Foolishness it is.

    Good album, wouldn't stack it up to the rest of theirs though to be honest. There are some lovely songs on it though :3:

    It's not so much the genre changing, it's more the fact that it's Opeth without what make Opeth as strong as they normally are, namely, the contrast between light and heavy. That and the production is much more sparse feeling than their earlier and later work, though granted it was very rushed

    Every song sounds exactly the same, and as my dear friend dopey trout so eloquently stated: "Every song chad kroeger sings is about his cock"

    And it's true:

    Also

    Ahahaha I remember dopey trout saying telling us about this at the Devin gig

    Good on you, random crowd member.

    IIRC they were going to release this and Deliverance as a double album but decided against it.

    Yeah, it definitely feels like a double album. But even as songs go, there's not a great deal of variation or contrast within them, at least on Damnation. Deliverance is weird because it's meant to be heavy, but it still has very soft parts

    Edited:

    So I take it hardcore Opeth fans don't like it?
    Not necessarily, I like it, I just don't think it's particularly great

    It's not their best release but still good.

    Edited:

    Yeah I agree with you there, it's quite repetitive honestly. There's very little variation.

    Orchid and Watershed are the only Opeth albums I don't like. Watershed has a few good songs but it's the proof they're going mainstream, and bad. Orchid is just lame :frown:

    Wot. It's like the least accessible album they've made, with the exception of Burden and Porcelain Heart. Oh and Coil

    Orchid is also fucking fantastic

    I'd say deliverance was the least accessible due to the consistently long track lengths.

    This album is just too good. I just can't stop listening to it. I'm paranoid that it's going to follow me to the grave at this point.

    I'm okay with that dot jay peg

    Well, you can't deny that Opeth are becoming mainstream. He does have a point.
