    lovely psychedelic rock and the whole album only cost 84p . Biggest bargain ever . I feel pretty pretentious and pleased with myself for stumbling up a 94 rated album by chance .

    This album is essential if you are getting into stoner/doom/drone metal genre. It's extremely influential for artists as diverse as Wolves in the Throne Room, Black Bombaim or the Heavy Eyes. Listen to it, it's a great **** experience. Burn some incense, turn off the lights off and experience the Power of the Riff. 10/10 may sound too much, but this record deserves it!

    If you are at all interested in "doom" as a genre then this is an essential album...I don't believe in albums scoring 10/10 but this comes very close. Turn out the lights, get comfortable put on your headphones and zone out to this audio masterpiece

    Were it only instrumental, Dopesmoker would be some kind of masterpiece. [Aug 2012, p.55]

    Cryptic and daunting, "Dopesmoker" is the quintessential stoner metal track. Sixteen years since its birth, it remains unsurpassed.

    If the first [issue] had sonic charms which seem extemporary, this one is somewhere between the sublunary murk of the earlier bootlegs, the original band-approved TeePee records version of 2003 and a brighter, modern-sounding studio demo, but it's not glaringly distinct.
