1 stars Lame.

That's the first word that comes to mind when I think about this album, and just about every other Pain of Salvation album for that matter. These guys have been put on such a high pedestal by their fanboys that when someone new to the band decides to take them for a spin is totally underwhelmed.

Every single song on Remedy Lane is like this. Just when you thought Daniel Gildenblow would shut the fuck up finally and allow the instruments to bust out some amazing section, he just keeps going, and going, and going like the Energizer Bunny. This wouldn't be a problem mind you if the vocals were actually interesting and enhanced the music, but they don't.

Instrumentally these guys are solid, there's no arguing that. Having said that, they suffer severely from the Malmsteen Effect; talented musicians who couldn't write a great song to save their lives.

So all in all, if you're a fan of extremely boring, plodding, weak progressive music in vein of Queensryche, I'm sure this band is right up your alley.
