This is an incredible album with some of the most beautiful tracks written by Mikael.
He wrote this album in dedication to his grandmother.

It was the most favorite Opeth-album from the grandmother of Ellis, my wife. Especially "Hope Leaves" is the most emotional song for me in the whole discography.
