Be is incredible.
:heart

Yes.

Oh yes indeed.... and seeing it live before it was even recorded was magical. One of the top live experiences I have had. Love the DVD as well.
OMG, you saw them on that tour? That must have really been something else...even the DVD is so unique and magical.

It definitely still is early in the year, but it is my current album of the year  :metal

Depending on how sweet the Anathema album is, it might be a toss up. We shall see

It wasn't a tour. It was a couple of nights in their hometown Eskilstuna. At a very special place... loved the stage and the pool. Great atmosphere...
And hearing it live first...

I live just an hour from Eskilstuna and my wifes parents live there so for me it was a no-brainer. As good as it was I would have travelled far for it which I think a lot of people did.

Yea, apparently they filmed the DVD at the former nazi headquarters with helicopters providing light.

So Rangar recently posted the original version of Meaningless (well, what is now called Meaningless) which had the clever title of Rockers Don't Bathe.  Pretty cool...

From his Facebook page -

People have been asking me a lot about this song so I decided to share this with you.
Some of you already know this but the song Meaningless is originally a Sign song from 2012.
The lyrics are slightly different and the arrangement is too, just listen for your self.
The sound in the beginning is my voice being heavily processed, sampled, pitched and cut a lot.
What started out as a small song about my depression and being away too much from my loved ones has turned into my personal highlight of our shows and it seems to be getting really good responses whenever we perform this song.

So hold the phone.

A song written and created by an entirely different artist somehow gets released as a Pain of Salvation song? One which sounds way too close to the original. I'm not down with that.

Entirely different artist? No. The artist was one of the band.

Even if it had been a pure cover song, I don't know why people get so upset by that sort of thing these days. It's always been done. Being a cover song didn't stop Jeff Buckley's Hallalujah being an enormous hit.

And also, I'm assuming Ragnar is/got a bigger royalty check because of that song. He's going to get some performance and publishing money as well (if he agreed to with Daniel).

I also think Ragnar is a huge addition to PoS. His background vocals are great, his playing is rock solid and he seems to be a very good song writer.

After thinking about it more, if Ragnar is cool with it, then I am cool with it. Its just that I've been walking around for weeks going "Daniel is a genius, meaningless is amazing", so I felt silly when I made the realization.

So Its more me being naive to the bigger picture and marking out a little too much to Daniel.

Personally I'd probably say it's maybe my least favorite on the album (still good) so I don't really put too much thought into the origin of the song.

That's far from the only old Ragnar songs that has been reworked like this.

I Lost the Way, which turned into On a Tuesday: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_ZAoqAW8v8

I Lost the Way part is one of my favorite moments on the album. And Ragnar wrote it 14 years ago :o
