5 stars This is a-m-a-z-i-n-g. I was interested in this album when it show up in several magazines as "Album of the month" (and later in 3rd or 2nd on "Album of the year" ;) and I though "hmm this looks interesting". I searched more reviews and samples and I went down to local store to put my doubts away. Well, finally I listened to "Salvation" from the begining to the end. And it didn´t go very well. It looked like some 4 guys who couldn´t decide if they wanted to play psychedelic rock or death metal... But I´m totally wrong. And if you had (or if you´re having) a reaction like I did... DON´T get fooled! Listen to it a couple of times more! "Salvation" is full of passion and mistery. If you see the interviews to Cult of Luna, they actually say that they aren´t "progressive", but their music speaks louder and has a self image and weight. You cannot get fooled by the vocals, for example. They don´t destroy the intelligent guitars/bass/drum effects. They´re just a part of the agression and melancholy that really defines the Cult of Luna "style". This band is a colective, in the common sense of the word. Everyone has something to say. There are very few musicians that have this kind of work. I cannot wait for the next album..
