GHOST REVERIES SPECIAL EDITION
When a band re-releases a CD these days with a few extras and bells and whistles, you can almost smell the greed come from the record company and their shameless ploy to exploit the fan and bilk them of their last shilling. Thankfully, that's not the case in the handling of the uber-fan friendly re-release of Opeth's GHOST REVERIES. This package includes a bonus track (Deep Purple's "Soldier of Fortune"), the entire album in 5.1 Surround Sound Mix (a real treat for the home stereo buff), and a DVD with both the music video of the grandiose "The Grand Conjuration" and a documentary covering the making of the album. Well worth the second purchase for the in-depth extras or the perfect place to start for the curious, this impressive collection of all things Opeth elicits the most bang for your buck while shedding some light on this mysterious yet captivating Swedish metal entity.
