If RS2 is as good as RS1, I'd say the combined album will beat out TPE and RL.

I often forget that they're meant to go together, but yeah, if RS2 is as strong as RS1 then this whole Road Salt thing will be worthwhile.
It still would have been nice to take in the whole album at once, but hell, I'm fine with it if Road Salt 2 ends up kicking ass just like the first one.

Just listening to One Hour at the moment at work.  This really is an amazing album, and possibly the most underrated POS album.

It's definitely the most underrated. In my opinion, it's better than every studio album they've released since Remedy Lane.

OHBTCL sounds the most generic of their albums to me. Doesn't have that same magic the others do, in my opinion. Gildenlow agrees with my sentiments  :lol

I do like some tracks though, like Inside, The Big Machine, Water, etc.

Well, it's more a result of their newer stuff just not being very good, rather than One Hour being a masterpiece.

Morning on Earth doesn't get enough recognition.

The Silent Cody

So after two listenings to The Perfect Element I have to admit that it's a masterpiece by faaaar.... Remedy next in line ;)

Zydar

Remedy Lane is my favourite, so you're in for a treat :P

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

Ok, liking scarsick is one thing. lol'ing at the fact other people don't like it is just pretty ridiculous. It's not like it's the bands worse received album ever or anything.

I listened to Scarsick after hearing RL at the recommendation of a friend. I was put off the band for a good 4 months before I got over it.

That's what makes it so disappointing.  All the freedom haters who don't like.. no, love Scarsick.

No, it does not suck, it is one of my favorite albums ever, and my favorite Pain of Salvation album.




It does not suck.

It's controversial.

Two songs have him straight out rapping the verses - but then so does Used on the perfect element 1.
There is also a disco prog metal song (yup!) and a song thats all about how gildenlow doesnt like america.

But overall I don't see how fans of their other albums can't at least like the rest of the album.

Just FYI, Scarsick is Perfect Element part 2.
