I'm in the minority that doesn't think much of pre-Watershed Opeth. Blackwater is great, Damnation is great, Watershed is their best record imo, but almost everything else from the pre-Watershed days ...

I think they are embracing the old sound though. Like, My Eternal Dream is straight out the gate 90s Tolkki worship in every way, right down to the lyrical themes, and each of the albums so far has ha ...
