I love most if not all of their albums cookie monster vocals or clean. I probably play their last 3 or 4 albums the most as those fit most moods but I love Blackwater Park & Watershed particularly.

For some reason I had never crossed paths with Opeth until 2011 when a trusted friend recommended BP. Bought the reissue with the 5.1 version of the album...Mind Blown! Opeth became my new favourite band, bought the back catalogue & fell in love with every album growly vocals 'n all. Great live band, had the good fortune to see them on the last three tours, Mikael Åkerfeldt is a very funny & talented bugger & the band play like MF's.

The 5.1 versions of Blackwater Park, Ghost Reveries, Watershed, Heritage & Pale Communion all sound fantastic.

Most fave Opeth albums in a very rough order:

Watershed [2008]
Pale Communion [2014]
Blackwater Park [2001]
Ghost Reveries [2005]
Heritage [2011]
Still Life [1999]
Sorceress [2016]

There are a number of Opeth songs on albums prior to their last three that don't have cookie monster vocals, one of my absolute favourites is 'Burden' from the Watershed album, sublime.

Another recommendation if you like what Opeth have done in recent years is the Mikael Åkerfeldt & Steven Wilson collaboration Storm Corrosion album from 2012. A bit more 'out There' & less 70s prog but very good, quite mellow, ambient prog.
