Things improve massively with "Will O the Wisp", a western vibe'd track that has more than a hint of Tubular Bells in the key changes. This track, I really liked, putting in mind something like a return of Firefly (if only the TV Gods were so kind). This was my second favourite track.
Overall, I really enjoyed the album, and it's a very simple matter of giving it a 9, even with the dodgy "The Wilde Flowers". As you already know, the best of an admittedly good album is The Seventh Sojourn.
So, you can follow Opeth here, grab the album from Amazon here, and on iTunes here.
