The songs are masterfully composed and flow together beautifully, and the orchestration is exactly how I want metal orchestration to sound: full, playable by a real orchestra, and just as important to the music as the vocals, drums, guitar, and bass are. tonycordeshimself
"It is the title track that oozes the most of Opeth especially with the inclusion of mellotron and the pummeling riffs. But even if there are still a lot of moments that make me think of other bands, Countless Skies grew so much as musicians that I can't help but be won over by how great this whole blend sounds, as much as I am most compelled by the moments in which they sound like no one but themselves."
