I'm sure it is. I heard plenty of positive reviews about it all through 2014.

I don't make my own music (outside of some fl studio stuff.) I practice other people's music on a daily basis, though. Guitar/piano/terriblesinging. It's a shame :/
Good you've come around, or more appropriately returned to, Opeth. My favourite of theirs is Deliverance, but if you dug Blackwater Park you'll probably like Ghost Reveries and Watershed (plus Deliverance of course, ****ing masterpiece) as well. Their latest, Pale Commmunion, is a leap in the prog direction that they only hinted at with their earlier music. It doesn't quite stand up to their heavier stuff IMO, but it's still worth checking out.

If my memory serves me right, I believe that album is already a deep love of mine. I'll revisit the entire discography as I do with all artists I listen to and post my thoughts here and there.

I recall the title track from Deliverance being absolutely phenomenal. It was one of my favorite tracks of all time back from my glory days of not knowing what an album even was (I really did deserve to burn in a fire. Not kidding.)

Now I'm gonna have go on an Opeth binge. I'm okay with this.

Fun fact: I also loved GY!BE back then. I don't know how, but they served as my introduction into the world of music. Thanks, GY!BE.

Thanks for the words. When I started off a few months ago I couldn't get my pitch right and my voice was constantly cracking. Luckily I conquered that and now my problem is coming down to technique, disliking the way my voice sounds no matter what I try and lack of confidence.

I'm gonna try doing some of my own songwriting and see if I can use it to my advantage.

To be fair I love Blackwater Park, Still Life, and Deliverance as well, but I thought Heritage did what it tried to do well.

Grandaddy - Sumday

I loved Under the Western Freeway and The Sophtware Slump, so I decided to dig further into my secret love for Grandaddy. I had a surreal dream not long ago that had a Grandaddy track playing in the background. This album reminded me of that dream as it gave me that same beautiful feeling. Grandaddy is growing on me at a dangerous rate and I might just have to put away my search for new music to put them on repeat. That closer gave my sadness a major boner.
