Pain of Salvation thread, v.2 (merged)
« on: August 23, 2010, 06:41:11 AM »
Just realised how massive the old thread was getting! (here for reference: http://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=185.0)

So, here we discuss all things Pain of Salvation. Think I'll start with an album ranking as I don't think I've done one in a while:

1. Be
2. The Perfect Element
3. Road Salt 1
4. Remedy Lane
5. Entropia/
-. Scarsick
7. One Hour By The Concrete Lake

But to be honest, they're all pretty damn good.

Oh and feel free to carry on any discussions that were happening at the end of the previous thread.

I just listen to the live version wayyyyy more than the studio version. I heard it first, I like it better. I haven't listened to the studio version enough to place it anywhere yet.

It's essentially the same. Seems an odd distinction to make in your rankings.

No, I seriously saw no point. I'm not sure anyone else got it either. It might have been the dumbest idea I've heard from a band yet.

Yeah, but it's not worth it.  The new songs aren't really songs, as I'm sure you've heard, but their cool intros, so I just add them to the original version as not to hear the awful edits.

Why are we closing the original thread?

If you're not completely deleting it, I see no point at all. How much space does it take up exactly?

As far as ranking the albums...it depends on my mood. I am in the process of a PoS Top 30 on this forum, but considering the lack of replies or interest, it's hard to find the motivation to complete. Which is somewhat of a suprise as PoS are one of the most talked about bands on this forum, yet the Porcupine Tree Top 50 threads garner plenty of attention.
Currently listening to:

Anathema - We're Here Because We're Here *****
Kamelot - Poetry For The Poisoned **
Les Discrets - Septembre Et Ses Dernières Pensées ***1/2
Porcupine Tree - Deadwing *****
Symphony X - The Odyssey ****1/2





Sweat, skin, a pulse divine to balance this restless mind.

BE - 9/10
TPE - 9/10
RL - 7/10
Scarsick - 7/10
RS1 - 6/10
OHBTCL - 4/10

Haven't got Entropia.

Switch Remedy Lane and Be and I might agree with that one. The first half of OHBTCL is among my favorite material from the band, but the second falls a bit short for me, so it may very well be last on my list.

Most likely, many members know my opinion about DG but I really like their works though. PoS is another strong castle of progressive music. For me, Be deserves to place #1.

BE seems awesome as an album and a concept, but I just can't enjoy it casually. I could give it a listen when I'm in the mood for some serious concept album, but I wouldn't listen to songs like Nauticus I or Pluvius when I'm in a crowded place. Also the tracks like Animae Partus, and Vocari makes the album even less enjoyable as a casual listen. Dea seems a bit dragging for me.

Well but I give some of them regular listens. Including Imago, Lilium, Diffidentia, and Nauticus II.

There's a Japanese bonus track once again.  Maybe it'll surface somewhere, but for now you can hear it here http://www.hmv.co.jp/product/detail/3856289

It sounds like jazz and apparently has Daniel drumming.
