4 stars An acoustic Live album.

Pain of Salvation's most accessible record. Here, most of the songs they have chosen are not the ones that suffer from awkward time signatures/arrangements. These are some of their most accessible songs. From these songs chosen, the band chose to play without electrical instruments (think of unplugged albums). Do not think that there won't be power by taking out the electric guitars! This is easily the heaviest set of acoustic music I have ever heard.

I love this album. 12:5 shows the brilliance of the band (especially Daniel). While most artists play bland and lifeless (not to mention boring) acoustic adaptations to their main hits, Pain of Salvation brings a new dimension to their songs.

Chainsling, Dryad of the Woods, and Undertow are probably the best songs in this live album, but the rest is spectacular anyways!

My Rating : B+

Highly recommended to any prog fan.
