Nice for someone who caught on after the first three albums, like me..("Still Life" was my intro)....I'd get it if I didn't already have them.

I wonder which version of MAYH...remaster or standard?....For that matter have the first two records ever been remastered...?

Yeah, that would kind of suck to buy them not remastered and then they come out with remasters in a year or so. I remember many years ago when remasters seemed like more of a cash-in, but there have been a number of them where I can really tell a difference in quality more recently.

Pretty much all of them have been re-released with extra tracks (demos, covers, tracks that were recorded but not put on the album), but I never bought any of those so I'm not sure if they were remastered or not.

Three great albums. I'm with RM? in that I got into this band after these albums, but when I got them I was able to understand the roots of Opeth and it made me like them so much more.

I really like the song "Under the Weeping Moon" from Orchid. Reading this new compels me to go listen to it.
