You might say that if you've heard Road Salt One, you already know all you need to know. After all, the title Road Salt Two kind of gives it away that it is a linked album that we have on our hands. You might say so... but I won't. Because it will be unjust regardless of whether you like the first part or don't. It's not to imply this album is all that different, or that it will blow your mind. No, but it is a fine piece of music, with nuances to be discovered on repeated listens.

Pretty sure all you cats need to put away Opeth's latest attempt at recapturing the spirit of classic progressive rock and give Pain of Salvation's latest a spin or two. Expect plenty of bluesy grooves, catchy harmonized melodies, and a vocal performance by Daniel Gildenlöw that will tear out your heart strings with no remorse.

Listen to a few songs on YT a few minutes ago.

Seems decent, not really my thing but I might just check out the full album.

I imagine the over-the-top prog metal of their early 2000's won't be your thing either

Probably not, It seems I'm just not a fan of djent and prog.
I like the djent guitars, but the cleans don't usually fit into the music, and sometimes it gets really boring and repetative.

Oh well, I'll stick to my sludge metal and I'll be fine.

Vildhjarta, son. I had the same problem, and then I heard those guys.
