Yesterday i listened to some Opeth songs (Patterns in the Ivy, Reverie/Harlequin Forest, Blackened and Black Water Park) and i really loved them, so i wanna *buy* some of their CD's, but i don't know where to start, cause i'm not used to death metal growls, so i would like to start with their less heavier albums and then move to the growling...
I would really appreciate some help with a list or something of what Opeth albums should i start with.

second off,

Ghost Reveries, Blackwater Park are must haves.

edit: woops didn't see the not too heavy part:P

Ghost reveries is good. Morningrise is full of your 13+ minutes epic songs, you may wanna listen before you buy though.

Start with Damnation, it's totally Acoustic/Clean, And "Seek_&_destroy", If you're honestly gonna tell me Opeth doesn't belong in the "Progressive" section, you should seek help and/or leave.
