5 stars One of the masterpieces of progressive metal.

I had heard the album "Remedy Lane" of Pain of Salvation and stayed amazed.This guys have a incredible sound.But "Remedy Lane" I am not attracted me as did this album, "The Perfect Element Pt. 1".After years know only through the progressive metal of Dream Theater and Symphony X I got to the Pain of Salvation and was immediately attracted by the sound of this wonderful band.Listen this album makes me not diminish my passion for albums like "Metropolis pt.2" or "Images and Words", but this album is wonderful, it can not be doubted.

People seem to have problems with the rap of the opening track "Used" ,but so what? The question is what is this song is perfect, and now she is my favorite album(the best vocals from Gildenlow are here-this guy a demi-god when it comes to voice). "In the Flesh","Morning on Earth ","Idioglossia"," Her Voices","Dedication","Song for a innocent","Falling" and the title track (ie almost every song on the album)complete the list of my favorite tracks from that album.

What deserves to be heard thousands of times.
