Hi Eric

I certainly agree that Within Temptation's "Mother Earth" and Opeth's "Blackwater Park" both belong to the best metal albums that have been released in a long time....
but comparing WT with Opeth is quite a dangerous thing if you ask me....

I think most people consider Opeth to be a progessive death metal band and the fact that they keep on using the grunt-vocals is very typical for them (and also scares many people away)...WT on the other hand have left out the grunts (without any loss in quality !!!) which should make their music listenable for the masses....I am 100% sure that with some airplay this band could become very very big, if you would compare them to Nightwish (a band which I also really like), I think WT has
1. better songs
2. more variety
3. an even better looking singer (and Tarja isn't badlooking herself)...oops, the hormones took over here...

Now to come to my point:
+ I don't think many people on this board will appreciate Opeth's masterpiece
+ Within Temptation, on the other hand, should be heard by everybody on this board and I am quite sure that most of them will love it !!!!

In fact everybody who loves
-typical film music, or
-great female vocals, or
-Nightwish or Opeth or Trail of Tears or Lacuna Coil
-good music in general
will love "Mother Earth"....

So for those of you who still haven't got it: Within Temptation is not an album for metal-fans, it's an album for everybody who has any taste in music !!!!
...now this really is the end of my sermon
