Prog Reviewer
4 stars Just did the review of The Perfect Element as well as The Concrete Lake album and revealed my feelings about this highly acclaimed band. And that is what Pain of Salvation is. It's a huge prog metal band with a unique style and approach and they have their special place in the subgenre. I also noticed not everybody loves them but that's what you get when you don't play the 13 in a dozen style as we say it over here.

I have enormous respect for Daniel Gildenlow both for his vocal performance as for his compositional talent. Yet this Remedy Lane doesn't show his second mentioned talent to full extent I believe. If I compare this work with TPE I feel TPE is the better album. There are quite some "common" songs on this one in my opinion. It's simply less special to me despite the presence of Beyond the Pale which is one of their best songs ever.

So all in all a very good/excellent album deserving the four stars in the end though rounded up.
