Nah, I like PoS, but they haven't clicked (yet) as being something more then a good band.
Maybe that will change if I check them out some more, I only have like ~500-600 plays with them on lastfm.

500-600 listens is a lot.....

Does it always take you more than that to start liking a band?

Nah not really, this is kinda an unique example.
PoS has been kinda special for me that way, I started with The Second Death of, which I really liked.
Solid live-album with a lot of good songs, after that I tried Remedy Lane, Scarsick, The Perfect Element, Entropia and One Hour By the Concrete Lake, none really clicked.
Listened to 12:5, which I thought was really good, but again a live-album.
Have not tried BE, but their studio albums hasn't really clicked, so that's kinda a major part of it all.

See, Zantera may be brash in his judgements from time to time but he does eventually come around.  :biggrin:

Same here. ;)
Even though I like Opeth a lot more, I'm still more happy with PoS as an opener then Katatonia.
Don't get me wrong, I really like Katatonia, but I saw them open for PT, they weren't as good live as in studio, and I haven't seen PoS at all.

I don't think I've ever heard a single good thing about Katatonia's live show.

Just listened to Road Salt One, and I must say, it was pretty awesome. No Way, Sisters, Of Dust, Tell Me You Don't Know, Sleeping Under the Stars, Linoleum, Curiosity, all cool songs. I loved the fact that it was straight up rock with a ton of blues influence and very little of Gildenlow douchiness. One thing I must say, and this is not a bad thing, is that during the more rocking songs Gildenlow sounds EXACTLY like Chris Cornell circa Badmotorfinger. Any recommendations on where to head to next that is not Remedy Lane. I couldn't get through that one.

Just wait for RS2.

Seriously though, I'm not an expert on their whole discography, so if you can't stomach Remedy Lane (which is my favorite of the ones I know well), I don't know what would be best for you to sample next.

Welcome, however, to the realm of fine taste and sophistication.*

I used to love PoS. 12:5 is still one of my favorite albums of the past decade, I love Remedy Lane to death-when I broke up with my girlfriend of six years a while ago, "Second Love" was pretty much my theme song for the next couple of months-and I even found a lot to enjoy with BE, though by and large I found that it really didn't work overall, just too quirky. Then Scarsick came around and, for me at least, PoS lost the plot. Maybe it was just my interests moved in different directions, but I used to love the hell out of PoS, and now I don't.

Ahh well, I'll always have "Second Love."

The only album I have is Scarsick, and I must say I didn't really like it, but I've heard that that album is a bit different. What album would you recommend me to try next? (I'm a metal/prog metal/prog rock fan)

Cheers :)

I say Remedy Lane, but also a lot of people will say The Perfect Element.

I'd check out their live CD/DVD, Ending Themes. It's got a really good set, and the sound is really better than PoS studio albums, which usually don't sound very good anyway.

Cole, I would say "The Second Death of", it's a live album that came out right before Road Salt, so it covers all of the albums released earlier.
Great song-list, and honestly I think PoS sounds much better live.  :tup

really, i'd say the only two that really give off the prog metal vibe are the firts two albums (Entropia & One hour...), but for some reason, not too many folks will recommend them.

the ending themes album is a great live recording and probly a great place for anyone to start and get a good taste of the band's variety, despite the lack of showcasing the epics.

No Way is the best song on the album...as of now. But it will probably stay that way. The song is awesome.

Nah. It's an ok song.


Of Dust is my favorite, but Sisters is right up there. No Way has that lame little bridge section, just bores the hell out of me.

That is the one thing that brings the song down...

BUT THE VERSES!! :drool:

Verses are cool, but by far the most egocentric lyrics he's written.

Doesn't seem like a hidden message, it's Daniels character saying that some girls new boyfriend isn't as amazing as he is.

I dunno, it seems that he noticed that fans loved Remedy Lane (which is about sex) and then made another album about sex without really realizing why we liked Remedy Lane and that the fact that it's about sex wasn't it.

Oh, I figured it was about some character with the same issue or something. Eh, I dig the song. In a few days, I might try Remedy Lane again, but IIRC, I hated it on the first listen so much, I never went back.

If you hated Remedy Lane, and think No Way is the best PoS song, then this probably isn't the band for you.

They have been getting quirkier and weirder and goofier as of late (which is seems you're very fond of) but their main stuff is pretty damn serious and based around emotion.

It's not that I like goofy, I just dig the straight up rock. Like, I remember the one song I dug off of Remedy Lane was Ending Theme because it was badass. The chorus had Gildenlow belting and it was cool. :lol

Yea, this might not be your band.



But if you're up for it, I'd check out either Entropia or One Hour By the Concrete Lake, neither are goofy but they're both pretty rocking (although in a completely different way than RS).

I'll definitely check them out. I think I'll give Remedy Lane was more listen and if I want to shoot myself, I'll check the other albums out before completely giving up. :lol

I could always hope that RS2 is similar to RS1. Thanks though, dude. :tup

I'm digging it. I mean, it's a bit out there, but I like most of it.
