5 stars The Perfect Element Part 1 was love at first sight for me,although it was the second POS album i istened to..That album managed to introduce POS to a larger amount of people..they needed it and totally DESERVED it..So..What makes this album special?The answer is simple..EVERYTHING..The musicianship from the riffs to breaks and then to solos..Each one shines here..Of course Daniel steals the show but what can you say about the other 4 members?! Johan Hallgren:i don'y know if without him the album was the same..Bombastic player with some excellent guitar solos..I can't imagine Daniel playing guitar without him.. Fredrik Hermanson:The man behind the ''scenes''..His brain produces such amazing melodies and delievers them so magicaly.. Kristofer Gildenlow:Teriffic bass player with some of the best basslines i've ever heard.. Johan Langell:I've Always considered him the ''machine'' of POS and couldn't imagine POS without him..Can you replace his incredible rythms his dynamic grooves his marvellous breaks?Surely Leo is a bet that Daniel has to win..I 'dont want to describe the songs particularely cause i shall write hours and it's no use..All compositions shine here with Idioglossia The Perfect Element King of Loss and In the Flesh steal the show..All in all a 5 stars album,a true diamond you must NOT ignore!
