Back in 1996, I was still quite new to the ways of Metal, and I was more looking for brutality than melody. So when I first listened to this album, the melodic side didn't appeal to me, and I haven't cared that much.
But, later on, after discovering Amorphis's previous album Tales From The Thousand Lakes, memories from Elegy came back to haunt me… The electro break of Cares… The mesmerizing riff of Against Widows… And now that I listen to this album again, I realise that it is a masterpiece!

I just recently bought a copy of this album, and I have to say that it now claims the title for Favorite Amorphis Album. I personally think it's their most diverse and captivating album to date, and a big leap to take after the great Tales from the Thousand Lakes, that was pulled off successfully (to the point in which I say that Elegy is superior to its predecessor). Long Live Amorphis!

It's not quite my favorite Amorphis album (Skyforger is), but there are so many moments on this album that make this a classic for me. I believe this album is their most balanced when it comes to the amount of clean vocals and growls, really awesome stuff.

The last minute of "The Song of the Troubled One" is the best music Amorphis has ever written.

Who does the vocals on Against Widows from 1:58-2:23?

Edit: Also, how the hell is this purely melodic death metal

That's Koskinen. He has quite a varied delivery (if you think about "Greed" off Tuonela it should make sense)

And yeah, progressive folk metal should be added. Not that much pure melodeath left on this record but some.
