Video of the Week – A Fair Judgement

Recently, I had a small sliver of time to myself at home.  This is something of a rare event since I do have a wife and kids so the likelihood of house being empty is slim.  My kids went to their summer enrichment program and my wife went to Ireland for the day.  So, I had the house to myself…for three hours.  What’s a guy to do?  Well, I worked.  Boo!

Ya, I know I took leave from my military job so my wife could go to Ireland only to end up working for my teaching gig.  I had some papers to look at and grade which leads me to my next point.  I needed some good music to listen to while working.  I figured listening to brutal Thrash or Death metal wouldn’t enhance my criticism of the written word; I needed something a bit more tame and soothing.  I remembered a while back I made an Opeth mix of my favorite “slower” songs from them which brings me to my next point – the Video of the Week.

On that CD is a song called A Fair Judgement…a killer Opeth song and turns out it was pretty cool for grading papers along with the other “slow” songs on that CD.  Need I say more? Instead of doing this for the song of the week, I figured I would use it for the video because this live clip is so well-recorded and worth watching. Here is a live clip of that song from Opeth’s Lamentations DVD.  Have a great Week!

  1. This song is one of the best from Opeth. Just amazing… Thanks for sharing :)

  2. Nice….

  3. Cool, great song. I had Deliverance out for a spin a while back, since it often seems to get overlooked. Not as strong as Blackwater.. or …Reveries, perhaps but some good songs nonetheless and this is perhaps the best one. Nice clip, too: I never saw this line-up live :(

  4. Great tune one of my favorites! The live version is killer. I need to hunt down that Lamentations DVD. Deliverance is such a great album, and this tune is the crowing jewel.
