    Staying true to what they have done in the past, Pain Of Salvation's "Remedy Lane" sounds like a Pain Of Salvation disc, but sounds completely different than anything the band has done before. Both lighter and more straightforward than their previous two discs, "Remedy Lane" is simply difficult to take out of the CD-player, because most other discs from other bands seem boring after listening to this.

    2002's "Remedy Lane" was my first encounter with Pain Of Salvation's music and although I heard that the band had an excellent reputation, the only thing I knew about the combo was its name. The truth is that I wasn't prepare for something as beautiful as "Remedy Lane". I'm no stranger to progressive metal, one of my favorite bands being Dream Theater, but oddly I missed the Pain Of Salvation phenomenon until now and do I regret to have discarded an opportunity to listen to "The Perfect Element" years ago… So you guessed it, this album is something so unique, so pure and so authentic that it's a insurmountable task for me to be neutral. At least, I'm warning you…
