5 stars Pain of Salvation succeeds amazingly at the impossible feat of following up an album as good as "Perfect Element" with something AS excellent while still progressing into new territory. "Remedy Lane" takes the band's dynamic and unique sound into new levels of professionalism and maturity, lead by the group's exceptional and memorable songwriting.

The album opens strong and ends its first act with the amazing "Trace of Blood", which will have the listener throbbing with delight only to follow up with "This Heart of Mine", a beautiful example of the group's ability to shift styles and probably their finest ballad. The grand finale, "Beyond the Pale," might just be one of the coolest songs you'll ever hear, but it is far the only thing holding this awesome album together. "Remedy Lane" has enough variety in songs and tone to please just about anyone.

The group's playing is of the highest caliber, and most importantly... is DIFFERENT than most of their contemporaries. Highly recommended!
