Way too much RS. I know that's the album they're touring for, but that's over 50% RS songs.

Who cares? They played some of the best RS-songs. :P The Physics of Gridlock, Sisters, Healing Now & The Deeper Cut are among the best songs they've made since BE imo.
Well Adami doesn't like the RS albums, so I guess he'd probably care. :lol

I think that setlist is phenomenal though, even better than the one I saw.

Ariich is a freak, or somehow has more hours in the day than everyone else.
I be am boner inducing.

Oh. Well it's always lovely with fans who started liking the band X amount of albums ago, and the rants that "why do they play new songs?"  ;)

To be fair it was pretty much perfect, considering it was a RS-tour and those songs had to be in the majority. While they played 9 RS-songs, they also played 7 older songs, which still is not far from a 50/50 ratio. If I could wish for anything, it would be to see Ashes and Chain Sling gone from the set. They're both good songs, but they have been played on almost every tour (?) and I don't think it would hurt to replace them with something more "fresh" or something else. Handful of Nothing? Home? Foreword? And they NEED to play Her Voices (the full version), that song might be my favorite PoS-song actually.
But yeah, even though the main focus was on Road Salt, we still got some really badass songs like Iter Impius, The Perfect Element, Stress (when was the last time they played that live?) and Enter Rain!  :metal

You got Enter Rain! I was really looking forward to hearing that, but they didn't play it.
Hey dude slow the fuck down so we can finish together at the same time.  :biggrin:

I thought the set list was amazing  :metal

Sure I'd have liked some more songs from older albums, but I really like the road salt albums too so I was pretty happy  :biggrin:

I'll be completely honest and say that if I were at that show, I'd be singing my lungs out to every RS song. Except when they got to the french part, then I'd just wave around a german flag.



Honestly, the only thing that makes me less enthusiastic about PoS now is the line up.

Okay, time for a "dream"-setlist thing. Just for the fun of it.
Here's what I would love to see them play on a show, though it will never happen. :P
(Will include the album after each song, we all know where the songs are from, but just for the sake of it)

1. ! Foreword (Entropia)
2. Handful of Nothing (One Hour by the Concrete Lake)
3. No Way (Road Salt One)
4. Trace of Blood (Remedy Lane)
5. Healing Now (Road Salt Two)
6. Morning on Earth (The Perfect Element)
7. Diffidentia (BE)
8. Flame to the Moth (Scarsick)
9. Winning a War (Entropia)
10. Home (One Hour By the Concrete Lake)
11. Lilium Cruentus (BE)
12. Waking Every God (Remedy Lane)
13. This Heart of Mine (Remedy Lane)
14. King of Loss (The Perfect Element)
15. Kingdom of Loss (Scarsick)
------Encores--------
16. The Physics of Gridlock (Road Salt Two)
17. Iter Impius (BE)
18. Her Voices (The Perfect Element)

Would probably be too long, and too few RS-songs. Not that I don't like RS or anything, but seen PoS two times now, and they played mostly RS-songs, so I've seen most of the songs from RS that I want to see. :)

Eh the line up doesn't bother me, Daniel's still there and they've recruited a ridiculously hot guitarist so I'm not complaining.

Oh no, that would be fine. And if I were raping Zoidberg, I'd be sure to call him Johan.

I am now picturing you having sex with Zoidberg from futurama and both of you making those sounds together. And now I have no desire to eat anything for a very long time.

King of Loss is awesome. Love the whole build-up to "I AM THE KING OF LOSS". Normally I would consider putting Enter Rain and The Perfect Element on my wish-list, but I was lucky enough to get both live now when I saw them, and there are songs I want to see live.. more. :P Some of the songs on the list are songs I have seen, but I guess I like them slightly more.

Maybe Elite is thinking of Kingdom of Loss.



That being said, King of Loss is far from being the best song on TPE, let alone being the 'essence' of PoS. In my opinion, of course.

It took me a really long time to warm up to King of Loss. I liked POS otherwise though. Nowadays, it's definitely one of the highlights of TPE along with Reconciliation right after it.

I must admit that after the first listens, I really didn't think that the songs were different, apart from the pacing/instrumentation. Morning on Earth felt like it was the same song, just "scaled down" or something. But if I'm not mistaken, he sings the chorus twice in MoE but only once in Reconciliation, and the chorus is my favorite part with the song. :/
