I need to come back and air my gripe with this reissue, as well as the MOV. It irritates me to no end that they add the bonus track to these reissues. It's not only unnecessary, but it takes away from the quality of the closing title track of the album, the seminal moment that deserves all the fidelity it can muster. But instead, they cram two 10+ minute songs onto one side of a disc just to squeeze an unnecessary live track onto the end. Why was this done? The last pressing to dedicate the full Side D to Blackwater Park was the Koch pressing from 2010. If they ever redo this album again (which I'm sure they will, and I'm sure us idiots will buy it), for the love of God, take off the godamn live track. The title track is arguably the best moment on this album and it pains me that Side D has THE MOST MUSIC crammed on any side of this album. Such a mistake!

Clarity, Seperation . Very warm sound especially if you consider that it is a death metal record. Go for it you won't regret it!
Wonderfull pressing.

My one has a few very audible pops/cracks in one of the clean/acoustic sections through "The Drapery Falls". Definitely not the standard vinyl pops you get, it's way louder than that and stands out very much due where to it happens. Does anybody else's copy also have this defect?

My copy (The dark transparent version) came with a 24 page booklet not mentioned with dialogue from Mikael Akerfeldt & Dom Lawson - a fan - along with lyrics & photos. No signed print in my copy, though.

I don't own nor have I listened to the MOV release. But this pressing is quite nice - no unnecessary surface noise, clear sound, would recommend.

This pressing is gorgeous - both visually and sonically. The marbling and slight translucency are stunning. Åkerfeldt’s melodic vocals pierce the soul, his growls absolutely crush, and each instrument is crisp and amazingly dynamic. Zero surface noise. Easily one of the best pressings in my collection.

This is the third vinyl version I own of this album... Not sure how I feel about it yet. Not a huge difference with the first press and MOV releases.

Why does the 2 best acoustic/folk Opeth songs are NEVER repressed ?
"Still Day Beneath the Sun" & "Patterns In The Ivy 2"
from the Bonus CD of the deluxe CD packaging of Blackwater Park...
I won't buy the 20th anniv. LP since those 2 tracks are mandatory,
they beat the boring "Harvest" which made the cut to official LP, which is a shame.
Please Mikael Akerfeldt : tell the people to pull their hands << from under themselves>>
and press a 7inch of those songs...
Those songs were what the DAMNATION album should have been :
acoustic folk prog from Opeth, alas it was electric-jazz prog rock...
