5 stars First release? A MASTERPIECE!

This is the first album of the Swedish band. Pain of Salvation after a long time of being a group (since late 80's), record an album that is considered one of the most beautiful debuts in the History of New Progressive. ENTROPIA!

From the first moment, anyone can detect a unique style of composing progressive music, never met before. Daniel Gindenlow is the monster of this project, of this band. He almost writes all the music, he writes all the words and he gives the band its special and unique character. From his extremely technical vocal abilities (you can hear how many colours he changes throughout the album), to marvellous compositions that go from gorgeous orchestral parts to jazz paths, to funk, to blues, to progressive in general. His guitar college Daniel Magdic is a very charismatic guitarist and is exactly what Gindenlow needed to perform his concept. Fredrik Hermansson's keyboard parts are so nicely performed and arranged. The rhythm set is composed by Gindenlow's brother Kristoffer and Johan Langell, both great virtuosos, that perform an extremely technical playing and perfect cohesion. The album's production is what exactly had to be. Perfect!

Daniel Gindenlow and his band enter the progressive scene presenting a real masterpiece of music. The subsequence of this band's albums, would prove that is worth to be side by side to the most talented and great bands of the Progressive Rock. Daniel's ability of composing so beautiful music can be compared to some of the greatest composers/ musicians/ frontmen ever, such as Syd Barrett, David Gilmour, Roger Waters, Ian Anderson, Peter Gabriel, Robert Fripp, Andy Latimer and others.

A MUST HAVE album for everyone Prog fan..
