3 stars i was supprised by scarsick, its a great album, but the lyrics in this album are very angry and a tad corney in a few songs. all the other pain of salvation albums i could say i liked every song, but in this album, i can't say the same. i love this album dont get me wrong, its very progressiv, i just think pain of salvation took a wrong turn up at alberkerky. pain of salvation is my faviorite band, this album just takes aloooooottt of listining too.

this cd was very hard for me to rate, its very progressive, many styles, i just think you should hear it for your self, but this is what i think of it

1) scarsick - alot of people seem to not like this song, but its strange with pretty cool melodies, very good song 8/10

2)spitfall - okay, the lyrics in this song are pretty cool, cool and angry lyrics, but it sounds a lttle nu - metalish, and daniel raps in this song, wich is cool.. its a diffrent style.. just think he might have been a little too angry in this song.. f' this and f'that.. little insane 7/10

3)Cribcaged - this song is pretty cool, just the chorus is too much, i mean cussing is something in a song you are supposed to express in anger, but he just goes a little too farm plus the chorus lasts a while, but its an alright song other than that 7/10

4)america - this song started off cool, diffrent style than usuall pain of salvation, but it sounds like an emo rock song, plus daniel ... dude.. what the hell do you have against americans, haha i just think all that was a little too much, hes sick of america.. eh well im sick of this damn song.. this song was very very dissapointing.. 0.5/10

5)disco queen - weird song, its cool and all, i just played it over and over again, and i still think it is awful 4/10

6)kingdon of loss - ehh.. creative much??? umm.. you just have to hear this song for yourself.. 1.999/2

7)Mrs. Modern Mother Mary - okay song, just boring 4/10

8)Idiocracy - thats more like it.. but still, nothing like the perfect element.. thats why its called the PERFECT element 7/10

9)flame to mouth - this song is cool, cool melodies, its sounding more like pain of salvation, pretty badass once you listen to it alot 8/10

10)enter rain - okay song, just boring... 6/10

this album was creative, and i loved the techno and rap stuff.. thats was a crazy cool approach.. but that has nothing to do w/ the face that this album had no hooks and not the best of lyrics. a real boring cd.. =(

RIP - the amazing pain of salvation
