You can't really accuse prog-metal heroes Opeth of being lazy and unimaginative. Over the last five years they've released four (mostly) acclaimed albums without reverting to the same old same old. In fact, Opeth are as good as they are because of their constant evolution, and Reveries is yet another example of what a band can do if it really pushes boundaries. Opening track Ghost Of Perdition is a whirlwind of chugging death-metal, progressive rock and acoustic balladry, and the rest of Reveries pretty much follows suit. With four tracks over the 10-minute mark, it ain't always easy to follow along, but it's definitely worth it.
