I'm not a fan of progressive music. I am a fan of rock music, I love U2, Jeff Buckley, Ours, The Mission, Rammstein, metal and gothic, and other bands that have nothing to do with this. But for a rock music fan, Pain of Salvation is something superior! I've never heard something like this! I love this album, you can hear a lot of music styles in each song. Each song is a master piece, played by magic musicians and a great voice. You can find sensibility, power, ancient sounds, metal, rock, jazz, dark music, heavenly music, funky…everyting is here. It's like Faith No More meets Queen, Red Hot Chili Peppers, medieval music, gothic, U2, Opeth, Dream Theater…and a thousand big bands more. If you love music, you'll love this album.
