4 stars The best work that PoS has to offer. Very ambitious and very interesting listen.

A vast majority of this will put people off. The masterpiece here is all in Beyond the Pale, one of the greatest songs you are likely to hear, if you give it some time and understand its purpose.

The other tracks are good to great, but the masterpiece here is the closing track, which delivers the message very clearly due to the unique choice of arpeggiated chords. Many will be bored by this repitition, they will not understand it and how it fits. They will not get the raw emotional power found in this song. Despite its harshness, its a very beautiful song with a message as powerful as you find in movies such as Apocalypse Now. It's not a sing-songy song. You aren't supposed to be singing along, you are supposed to be listening.

The rest of the album is fairly typical Pain of Salvation, stuff you might could have heard on other albums. However, this is the best quality of the work they have done in their careers.

Truly 4 and a half stars, but I don't believe it is quite "up" there as a total package of bliss.
