This review is from: 12:5 (Audio CD)
On the heels of the release of Remedy Lane, Pain Of Salvation decide to play a unique acoustic concert to a crowd of 80 special guest. That performance is captured here on this release. Not wanting to perform a stereotypical "Unplugged" version of their material, Pain Of Salvation have drastically reworked their songs to fit the acoustic setting. For some tracks such as "Undertow" and "Drydad Of The Woods" the transition is relatively minor as one might expect. However, songs such as "Ashes" and "Winning A War" barely resemble their original version. The transformation of such oddities as these makes for an unpredictable experience. 12:5 should really be regarded as it's own work instead of a live recording for this reason, as the reworked version of the songs are often entirely new songs in themselves.
