Plains of Dawn sure is awesome! :metal One of the tracks that stood out to me when I got my first PoS-record Entropia.

Anyway...

AWESOME PIC!!!


but seriously you guys.
Nightmist is the most underrated POS song

Naw, Nightmist gets enough attention.



The true underrated Pain of Salvation song is Thorn Clown.  It's a top 10, maybe top 5 song for me, and most fans haven't even heard it.

youre tempting me to go all out and order a japanese import.

though my hopes are low after purchasing the OHBTCL with two bonus tracks this past summer...the additional songs were underwhelming.

The rest I agree with, but that song seems extremely popular.

2. Plains of Dawn


Interesting.  Reminds me how much of an underrated song Plains of Dawn is.
I absolutely adore it.

I CRY AS I'M WATCHING YOU RUN ACROSS PLAINS OF DAAAAAAAAAAAAAWN

The song is near perfect until the pasted on ending.

Yeah, the ending is alright in itself, but it comes out of nowhere. It would be one of my favourite ever songs if it weren't for that. :lol

Water is pretty underrated too.  It has their best guitar solo.

AND WEEEEEEEEEEE FLUSH!




Also, every song except for the three popular ones on Scarsick are very underrated.

Yeah. If the song faded out at like 5:30 it'd be amazing.

Behooold, my son   :heart

The ending doesn't really flow to the rest of the song at all.  I mean, it's "good" on it's own, but it doesn't match up at all. 




You know what else is criminally underrated?  Dedication!  Top three song for me, maybe my favorite.  I love how the subtle rage suddenly creeps in and then fades out again.

OMG DEDICATION.

Actually, I love all the ballads in TPE. Morning on Earth, Dedication, and Song for the Innocent. Especially the latter is SO FUCKING GOOD. That instrumental part is just one of the most emotional piece of music I've heard.

Really?? It's an ok song but it is certainly a low point on TPE. I mean, it's between Idioglassia, Her Voices and King of loss! Now THOSE are amazing songs.
"Once he had forests and mountains that were only his - listening to him. Once he would run through the summer days catching memories for ages to come. Now he is dressing this naked floor with his flesh and blood, and time passes by. His trade of pain might just have lead him to deal with consequence for some change as time passes by"

I knew this one people would disagree.  It is talked about, but that and Dedication IMO are the best songs on the album and I just feel people talk about In the Flesh, Idioglossia etc more.

The las 4 minutes of King of Loss is possibly the best piece of music ever!!

Dedication went for me from being just average song maybe the worst on TPE to being awesome song and top 3 TPE song. I love especially the part after "That you should be gone", it gives me chills, amazing song.

TPE is just amazing throughout, but I'm still partial to Reconciliation. I love the reprise of the Morning On Earth melody, and Daniel's high notes after the bridge are insane.
Orion....that's the one with a bunch of power chords and boringly harsh vocals, isn't it?

Does it need an explanation? :P I just don't like it as much as other people. I really like the first verse and the choruses, but the rest of the song isn't near as good.

I only like the end of King of Loss.

Kingdom of Loss is far better.

after spinning remedy lane repeatedly for the better part of a decade, i just finally listened to thorn clown for the first time!...

1st impression...very cool intro, not sure how sold i was on the vox...but already sure i like it more than the OHBTCL bonus tracks

i think so. i might have been over anxious earlier. to be fair, i feel i owe beyond the mirror and timeweaver's tale a few more listens.

just re-listened to thorn clown...im thinking it sounds more like a OHBTCL track than something belonging to RL.
(oh, and two more listens, and i'm sure i'll be praising the vox)

That's probably because Thorn Clown and Second Love were written in 1987 and 1988
