3 stars Pain of Salvation can do better, and we all know it. I don't know what to think about this album, I don't know if it's bad because it's simply not good or maybe because the enormous hype this album attracted. After a line of masterpiece after masterpiece, Pain of Salvation recorded a "Black Sheep". It's like nothing we used to hear from them, It's not even a prog album. And we expect Prog album from a prog-metal band, this album is hard rock like you can sometimes hear on MTV. Musically this album is a failure to me, But and it's a big one the lyrics are great, they deliver a lot of rage and criticism as Daniel intended. Maybe he compromised on the music to make his lyrical vision alive. After almost three years with this album it's still my least favorite album from POS. Overall, as a Hard-Rock\Metal album its very nice, but its not prog. Only for fans of Daniel.
