I'll gladly diss anything from Scarsick. What a disaster.
Orion....that's the one with a bunch of power chords and boringly harsh vocals, isn't it?

Scarsick is fucking awesome.  Remedy Lane is better, and lately Be and The Perfect Element have been creeping up on it, but Scarsick remains my second favorite Pain of Salvation album.

So there.

Scarsick is my favorite Pain of Salvation album.  I can see why some people don't like it, but to me it's pretty much the perfect angry album.  Not a weak song on it.

Beyond a shadow of a doubt, Scarsick is the worst thing POS has ever produced, and hopefully they never make something like it again.

scarsick = how to have a kick ass album by a band that formerly played guitar solos but seemingly no longer wants to (okay, so there's one 'n a half solos, but you know what i mean).

the same could be said of thirteenth step.

the same cannot be said of st.anger.

crazy, sure, but only a little. the irony of the lyrics should make it less vomit-inducing, even to someone that hates rap.

but really, daniel's done a bit of what i like to call 'the daniel rap' throughout most of their albums.

True, but Spitfall is one big Daniel Rap, pretty much.  The song wasn't one of my favorites until I went through and read all the lyrics carefully and then it was "OH MY GOD THIS IS AWESOME."  Couldn't stop listening to it for a while.

I don't have a problem with Daniel rap, as long as it's not through the whole fucking song.

fair enough.

i'm not exactly a rap fan, but i definitely like the song.

but even if someone can't stand spitfall, it shouldn't keep them from liking the rest of the album.

I can't stand all of the songs on it. They're just not as good as any of the songs on any of the other POS albums.

I don't even know how to respond to this.  I mean, there's no heartbreaking centerpiece song like Undertow or Oblivion Ocean or whatever, but there's still plenty of great songs.

I suppose the title track and Kingdom of Loss are alright, but the rest of that album is pretty much crap.

Idiocracy, Flame To The Moth and Enter Rain would like to have a word with you

Not even the badass Flame to the Moth?  Or the epic Enter Rain?

Really?

enter rain's my least favorite off the album. the last two album closers got nothing on the likes of beyond the pale and the perfect element

Beyond the Pale is one of the greatest album closers of all time in my book.  Innocence was pretty good and TPE was great.  Enter Rain may be a weaker song than Innocence...I'm not really sure which one I like better.  But Enter Rain definitely works much better to close an album out than Innocence does.  It just has the right feel.

TPE is probably my least favorite of their closers.  It's very underwhelming.

Yeah. As I said earlier, 2:19 is one of the worst moments in all music. :lol

Road Salt probably comes in second or third.


I know their last 3 are my 3 favorite of theirs.
