Pain Of Salvation- Linoleum

Biography

In a world governed by increasingly rigid rules and conformist conceptions of art, PAIN OF SALVATION have created their own niche on the international music scene. Their intelligently composed and cleverly arranged songs have mixed metal, pop, funk, disco, blues, goth and folk with Arabian and Oriental influences plus other more or less extreme musical styles into a homogenous whole.

5.0 out of 5 stars One word: Powerful. April 3, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Along with many others, I was disappointed to learn that Pain of Salvation's fourth album would not be the continuation of The Perfect Element story, which began with part I in 2000. Instead, we get Remedy Lane, a stunningly powerful and convoluted semi-story that is emotionally fatiguing in its intense pathos. Pain of Salvation has crafted a masterpiece here, perhaps one greater than The Perfect Element Part I. The band's original music and emotional performances are more powerful than ever. I'm not making any real objective statement here...it's just that I feel more drawn to this album than any of the band's previous works (which are all good, if not great).
Remedy Lane is another theme album (like One Hour by the Concrete Lake), this time about various forms of reconciliation. There is a roughly defined story, but it is fairly disjointed and the album mainly deals with different issues tied to the theme. Mainly it seems to cover the challenges of relationships and the connection between love and sex (you can have sex without love, and love without sex). It touches on tragedies like a miscarriage ("A Trace of Blood"), attempted suicide ("Rope Ends"), and a simple broken heart ("Second Love"). It's not all sad, though. There's some happier subjects like simple romance ("This Heart of Mine") and an obscure hint in the dark "Beyond the Pale" that two people can make each other better.
I am in the minority that thinks Gildenlow is not an amazing vocalist, but his performance on this album _is_ amazing. Mainly, this is because he no longer mistakes melissima for emotion, which always annoyed me before (I know I know...I'm demented).

5.0 out of 5 stars Everyone should own this album May 8, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I usually dont write reviews, but I had to say something here. I have seen a few reviews saying many ignorant things such as Gildenlow being a weak vocalist, melodramatic lyrics, etc. Well first of all, Gildenlow is simply the most amazing singer I have ever heard. His emotion, feeling, control, and variety are unmatched by anyone I have heard. Anyone who does not recognize his talent does not know very much about music. Secondly, to the one who said that the lyrics to A Trace of Blood are "melodramatic", his kid died, jackass. The song is about his wife's miscarriage, and the other songs on the cd are all real as well; the "storyline" is the story of Gildenlow's life. There's no melodrama here. The music on this cd is astounding and deep. The songs are so filled with emotion that you can feel it. From sadness to love to anger to pain, you will feel it with full force. It is impossible to describe the feelings associated with these songs unless you sit down with no distractions and give the cd a few spins. I dont want to go into detail about the particular song styles, but trust me when I say that this is truly one of the most amazing musical journeys you could ever take. The lyrics are a trip through the human psyche. Another comment was made that they do not have the "chops" to compete with Dream Theater; Pain of Salvation never said that they were as technically talented as Dream Theater. I don't see why this comparison should even be made. Gildenlow has never said that PoS should be labeled "prog metal"; that is just the genre that it most fits in. Don't listen to ignorant, unfounded comments that are directed at this album; give it a try yourself, see what you think. It just may change your life.

My love/hate with prog rock exists primarily due to the extensive beauty and virtuosity of the music, and the usual destruction of any real emotion by the vocals. Read more
