Really there's nothing I hate about the album, it just does nothing for me.

Lots of Pain of Salvation fans have the mindset that The Perfect Element and Remedy Lane are better than every other album that they've done. 

My advice to someone getting into them would be to at least not buy into that sort of mindset immediately, considering that I wasn't sure what to think of Scarsick at first and now it's my favorite album by them to date.  It's not really a change of style as much at it is a change of mindset in Pain of Salvation.  The core elements are really still there, but presented in a different way. 

Kingdom of Loss, Flame to the Moth, and Enter Rain are also some of the greatest songs ever, by the way.

Save Scarsick for last. That way you won't get so appalled by it's fail that you get scared off from the rest.

Scarsick was my first POS album and since then I have all their albums and both DVD's and they are now in my top 10 favourite bands of all time.

I started with Scarsick as well and I wasn't "appalled" or anything like that. 

You could venture to say that I was in love, even.

Yep, Scarsick was a special album for me.  It was one of those albums just made me feel safe and happy, and really helped me through some rough emotional times.  Great album.

I started with Scarsick and BE and I was ready to never listen to Pain of Salvation again after those two albums.

I started with Remedy Lane based on Amazon reviews.  It took a while for anything really to click, but the first song I loved was "Rope Ends."  Even after that, though, it still didn't work for me as a whole for a long time; it was like it came piece by piece.  Then one day after listening to the whole thing once again, it hit me like a revelation: this is one of the greatest albums ever!  Still feel the same way today.

Cool story bro.

I think Daniel has actually played drums for a rendition of Jesus Christ Superstar sometime, somewhere.  He's a huge, huge fan of the musical.

He already did the best part of that song in Nightmist (Why shall I Die? at 4:20)

Daniel Gildenlow's little guest spot on a short song from a new prog band that has his brother and Leo in it, he sings with Shanon den Adel form Within Temptation, it's pretty nice:

Meh, I know DG wanted to go 60's and 70's on this album, but I think that song pushes it a little too far.

I just remember the days when the music told the story along with the lyrics. With songs like that, the music just seems to be there, serving no real higher purpose at all.

This. I mean, I love experimental music, but this song is on the border of experimental and been-there-done-that.

Exactly, I mean musically speaking that might have been new for PoS, but it's still been done to death by hundreds of other bands.

I'll wait for a studio version to judge the song fully, but I like it.  I don't love it, though, and it doesn't seem to give much in the way of emotion, but it's fun.

I liked it, but idk I just don't expect it from PoS. It's like if DT started playing Zeuhl.

This exactly. I dig it a lot, defintiely a natural follow on from RS1.

I don't mind this.  The quiet sections gives you that definitive POS feel and Daniel's vocals really pull this type of style off really well.  It's a continuation of RS1 and we knew that this is something we were going to get.  Plus, this really isn't any more out there some of the material that was on RS1.  The ending gives me a real Scarsick vibe.  It's POS mixed with a good serve of Clapton and Cream.

I'm sure that PoS will change theme again after RS2 so people can stop whining.
