Same, apparently RS2 is a bit darker, and I love the sound of that. Also, The Physics of Gridlock is nearly 9 minutes long, so I hope it'll be the epic closer (i.e. Beyond the Pale, TPE) that Innocence wasn't.

Wow.

They have NEVER had a good website. First, they had that popup JavaScript bullshit. At least the content was pretty good, they even had some guitar tabs. And then they went blog, which was a DISASTER! And now this? Just Daniel's face and some small info?

In fact, few bands seems to really use their website well. How hard is to put some samples UPFRONT on the website, maybe letting newcomers get a immidiate taste of the band? And that's only scratching the surface...

ANYWAY! I'm quite excited about Road Salt Two - aside from a few songs I really liked the first one. :tup

It's shocking isn't it. You'd think they'd put their discography up there, a little biography, some samples like you mentioned...

While I agree that their website is a bit... lacking, I still wonder how much people read those discographies/biographies pages?
Personally, when I discover a new band I like, I just read their wikipedia-article, unless it's a really unknown band that doesn't have one (or very little info), but PoS are fairly known, and they have a fairly big article about them.

I think the blog was actually a pretty good idea, the problem with a blog is that it requires regular updates to make sense, and it only did for the first 2 months or so...

That website is fucking pitiful.

Granted, I never visit websites of bands. Most of them suck ass. I get all my band news from here, last.fm, and wikipedia.
Orion....that's the one with a bunch of power chords and boringly harsh vocals, isn't it?

I noticed that the first time I heard it...and every time since.  Doesn't stop it from being a good song, though.

Nah, I mean... I like it, but the "influence" or similarity was just so clear that it was impossible to miss.
I wonder if Daniel is a fan of the show.

I haven't listened to it for a while, but I never noticed it...

(Though I wish you hadn't said that though. I'm afraid it will be like with the Opeth logo and me being unable to un-see the fucking Pringles face)

That depends, does it have a clicky bass drum?

Time for a new update.
Been spinning BE and Scarsick quite some times the last weeks, seeing as they were the only two left in my journey to discover the discography.
Some quality material, BE is really good, but I don't really know what to say about Scarsick.
Some good songs, but some aren't that special, and the album as a whole hasn't been as enjoyable as the rest.

Album rankings right now:

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

Note that this may change in a week or so.
I find it really hard to pick a favorite, TPE is probably the one that feels the most perfect, but I've really enjoyed BE a lot, despite not hearing the live-version or read anything about the actual concept, and I still really love Entropia.
It is much rawer and unpolished, but it has all those qualities that makes PoS... PoS.

Scarsick may need A LOT of time to grow, but when it finally clicks... it's absolutely amazing. I also had very mixed feelings about it at first (and it was the first album I got :P), then I got TPE and Remedy Lane, and when I tried it again and got into it more... wow. It's very, very dark and not really optimistic (even though it is idealistic), but it's an incredible album. There are very few which make me get into the atmosphere as much as Scarsick.

Scarsick is kinda.. I don't know how to explain it.
The lyrics would be the biggest problem, seeing as some songs are good musically, but slightly dragged down by some bad lyrics here and there.
It's not a bad album, but I much prefer the others so far. :P

It would be helped a lot by a thick guitar tone. The paper thin one on the album really takes away from it.

On a side-note, I do love Flame to the Moth, America and the title-track.
The rest would fall under the ranges of 'haven't clicked' or 'decent, but not more'.

I think America could be my least favorite PoS song ever. I guess the banjo break down is cool, but oh my god it's just an annoying song.
