5 stars After the incredible masterpiece "The Perfect Element Part 1" what more can you expect from these geniuses from Sweden? "Remedy Lane"! Ohhh, what a great work they delivered again. Very melodious music in beautifull compositions with lots of tension. The third song on this record "Fandango" is a complex one with a lot of tempo- and mood changes on it, great song with some subtile metal influences in it. Some passages reminds me of the legendary band "Faith No More", I mean the voice of Daniel Gildenlow is just as great and with many dephts in it. Pain of Salvation is one of the most innovating bands of the decade without a doubt but for how long they can maintain this status? At the moment they did that with the new album "Be". Again they proof that composing beautifull music is almost as simple as brushing their teeth for them. To stay with "Remedy Lane" what to think of ballads? With "This Heart of Mine" they proof that they are from all markets with this beautifull ballad. The songs "Rope ends" and Cain Sling" are just breathtaking and the musianship is dripping off it all the time when changing tempo's and moods! In the beautifull ballad "Dryad of the woods" the instruments are used so subtile and again they made a golden composition! After the last song on this record "Beyond the pale" I expect more music after a total playing time of 68:12 minutes wich is not short for a cd. Why I expect more? because I like this somuch and time is flying when you having fun!!! ;-) There is not a song wich I don't like, these guys have the talent to turn everything into gold!!! You are not a Metal fan? Great! Because then you will like this album! Dispite of some Metal infuences this has nothing to do with Metal but everything with Progressive Rock! If you do not own a POS album yet, do not punnish yourself more with not listening to this music and go buy an album now!
