Yea, it's all in Japanese, when you go to english it takes you back to the home page and I didn't know what to look for beyond just "pain of salvation".

RL (Remedy Lane)


Most others will say TPE (The Perfect Element) but I have found that starting at the best and working your way down isn't usually the best idea. So start near the top and see where it goes.

Arcaeus

Remedy Lane -> The Perfect Element -> Entropia -> Be -> Scarsick -> OHBTCL -> RS1

Enjoy

You know what? Start with 12:5.

I did, it was odd. You can hear a wide variety of songs, all acoustic, many re-arranged. It makes hearing the originals later a very interesting experience.

Me too. 12:5 and then Remedy Lane, it was an amazing way to be introduced to the band. :tup

AwakeFromOctavarium

For me it was;

Half of Entropia -> Remedy Lane -> Entropia -> Half of One Hour -> Half of BE -> Bit of Scarsick -> Bit of TPE -> BE -> TPE

Now rediscovering BE.

Am I the only one who find rankings boring?  :lol

Anyway, Daniel Gildenlöw is much more than a music making-machine, he's damn sexy. :heart Both me and my girlfriend has him on our "exception"-list. :lol

I like seeing other people's rankings but I don't do them myself. My favourite songs/albums tend to change depending on my mood so I don't ever have a solid list.

And yeah, he is very sexy  :heart

How about the little speaker next to the thing that says 'Bonus Track'?


Arcaeus

Oh, shit, thanks! :lol

Can't really form an opinion around that sample, I'll have to hear the full thing some day.

I love 12:5. Re-arranging that many songs, you'd think something in that performance would fall flat. But, at least in my opinion, every single song on the album works, and works well.

I just came here to post that I can't get enough of Second Love. Been spinning it a couple of times tonight, and played it on guitar too.

:heart

Oh god does it. I'm kinda glad they didn't put Nightmist in there after all, it was just too......well sounded way too much like the original, and not in a good way.

But yea it was awesome hearing the 12:5 version of those songs, then hearing the originals after. Blew my load, I mean mind, blew my mind.

How odd...

itunes has PoS categorized in the following genres:

Be Live - Metal
Entropia - Rock
On the Two Deaths Of - Rock
OHBTCL - Rock
TPE1 - Rock
RS1 - Alternative & Punk
Scarsick - Electronica /Dance (!!!???)

Guess whoever is in charge of assigning genres really had no clue what to make of PoS.

Bahahahaha!

iTunes is so terrible.

Just for shits and giggles I checked my DT itunes page and every cd is classified as metal.

Well, what would YOU call Pain of Salvation?


And as for Scarsick, he must have only heard Disco Queen  :lol

LadyEars

QuoteWell, what would YOU call Pain of Salvation?

Probably metal or rock, given the genre choices they have. Of course if itunes had a progressive metal category that's what I would call 'em. What about you?

There is a video on youtube where PoS was playing at some festival and Daniel says the only person he bows to is Tori Amos. That made me so giddy cause I'm a huge Tori fan and it's nice to know her brilliance is recognized by someone as awesome as him. And now I keep hearing Tori's influence in his music, especially on the Scarsick album. Also hear Mike Patton's influence. Are these types of observations frowned upon here?

No, I played Used for my dad and he said "this sounds like something Mike Patton would do". :lol I also hear a lot of Faith No More in Entropia, and Daniel has listed Album of the Year and Mr. Bungle's California among his favorite albums.

I've only heard two Tori Amos songs, but I loved them. I need to listen to more of her stuff.

Woooyeah!!! DG has good taste in music. Glad I'm not the only one that hears FNM and Mike Patton all over the place.

QuoteI've only heard two Tori Amos songs, but I loved them. I need to listen to more of her stuff.
She's one of the most underrated artists ever, in my opinion. If you really want to give her a try I'd suggest starting with her older stuff. Most Tori fans agree that she hasn't put out anything really great since To Venus and Back. That's a good one to check out. Also Boys for Pele and From the Choirgirl Hotel. Under the Pink and Little Earthquakes are amazing but I wouldn't recommend them to a guy just starting out. Lots of chicks dig those albums because they deal with chick drama.

The Mike Patton influence was one of the first things I noticed with POS.

Yeah, it's pretty clear. I heard POS before I heard Mike Patton or Faith No More, though, so I actually noticed it in reverse.

Nice to see Nick returning to his classic levels of fail.

This is why we can't have nice things.
