People use the word "generic" far too much as a get out clause when really they just mean they don't like it very much.

Sure the production style on RS1 hearkens back to the 70s, but honestly I'd like to find another album that really sounds like it, because I love it and I want more. But I've never heard one.

I'm not saying it's "generic" I'm responding to the ridiculous claim that people are discounting reasons for disliking it as "people being against something different." It's NOT different. I will take early Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, Cream, and Steppenwolfe an almost any good 60s or 70s rock band over Road Salt any day. And this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3R8tRKIiAII

Road Salt is about as innovative as a Lenny Kravitz album. There, I said it.

Seriously. I could see that exact song being on RS 2... Sorry!

If that song is on RS2 it would be an improvement. ^^

It's pretty different for PoS, which is what the comment is about. I don't know why you think anyone would be claiming that PoS are writing music that is different to everything. :lol

Well, no one can do that, but they used to be a lot closer to doing that then they are now!

Well, I'm not sure I really agree. Like I said, I haven't come across another album that really sounds like RS1. Yeah I could find some individual songs that sound like some of the songs from the album, but I'm talking about the album as a whole. I find it very unique.

They were playing conditioned live before the release of RS1 btw (saw them on the small linoleum tour), so chances are that it's changed or scrapped.

OMG it's different for the band not for entire world. And it's as unique as TPE or RL compared to other albums in the world cause it definitely has POS essence all over it. It doesn't matter that the sound is inspired by 70's rock sound. The sound of TPE and RL was also inspired by progressive metal sound and there were already many many classic and awesome progressive metal albums out there in 2000 and 2002. However those two albums ARE uniqe. And not because they created some new genre. They are uniqe because DG and the rest of the band put their souls into it and that's same for RS1 too.

I'm not sure the rest of PoS put their souls into Road Salt, considering they weren't on a good portion of it.

I think they did. Road Salt 1 is bluesy and soulful, and its cool. No Way reminds me of a Stevie Ray Vaughn

I dunno, I'm sure DG did. But he wrote every note on the album, and actually performs all of the instruments on a good number of songs. I'm not sure how much "soul" the rest of the guys could have possibly put into an album they had very little to do with.

They should just throw away the guitars and start making dubstep.

Really? Did DG actually play all of those instruments or is he saying they were just recorded?

I would laugh my ass off if 1979 was the last song on the album to symbolize the end of this 70s experiment.  :lol

A translation from his Swedish twitter account he posted from yesterday:

"Road Salt Two is now mixed, mastered, and DONE! Ready and eager to be released at the end of September as standard, limited, and vinyl".

So I'm new to this thread...

I really didn't like Road Salt 1. At all. And yes its because they changed style.

I'm not faulting them for changing style, I'm faulting myself for not liking the style. And I am disappointed that they went that direction. I'm not saying they were wrong for doing it, but I am mad that they did. Just because they are one of my favorite bands doesn't mean I have to approve of everything they do.

Road Salt blows :(

Also the reason most people like TPE and RL the most is because people usually find out about PoS by liking Prog Metal, so generally they will like the albums that are more Prog Metally the most.

RS1 is one of my favourites.
