Crimson is probably better than anything Opeth have put out.

I like both, but Slowpeth meanders too much for me sometimes.

No contest.... Edge of Sanity is much better.

Mikael did a lot to enhance Crimson 2.... but Dan Swano will always be the better songwriter.

Opeth has more instrumental talent and is way more original. they never use your average metal riffs. More progressive than EoS too. Their riffs are acoustic based instead of electric guitar. Plus mikaels not scremo voice is better. Opeth also has a bassist that actually plays something instead of playing the same 4 frets for an entire song. EoS uses too much distortion for me to pick out their bass, so i might be wrong. Opeth also can play 11 minute songs and you never get tired of them. They make better transitions from heavy to calm than EoS, which usually uses stretched out notes instead of mikaels crazy acoustics.

all opinions. i dont listen to much EoS. Even though im listening to them now....

I have an easier time staying "tuned in" to 40 minutes of Crimson than 8 minutes of certain Opeth tunes.

Maybe that's just me

Don't get me wrong, I love Opeth. Mikael has one of my favorite growls in all of metal and really sounds fantastic on the latest Bloodbath EP, but like I said, sometimes Opeth is just a little too progressive for their own good.
