2 stars Great little compilation for its time - I picked up "The Painful Chronicles" from the Greek Metal Hammer and at the time I was utterly impressed with Pain of Salvation. The 6 songs in here represent the style of their 2 first albums which is heavier and rawer than anything they have done subsequently. Saying that, Oblivion Ocean is a stunning melodic track among the rest. The tracks are generally as excellent as the respective albums (One Hour by the Concrete Lake and Entropia) and this compilation would be a great introduction for people who want to discover the early steps of PoS when they were less famous.

Saying that, I doubt you can find this easily and is rather pointless for people who already own the 2 albums. Those looking for the early stages of PoS should go for the full albums instead. A great treat at its time and works great as an EP, but sort of "surplus to requirements" now. Fans may still want to look for it in terms of completion.
