4 stars What can be said about this album? Oh! This is the first in a string of three absolute masterpieces by the band. Pain of Salvation finally fully realize the extreme potential they showed on their excellent previous two releases. The Perfect Element, Part 1 is one of the most powerful releases I've ever heard. It is dynamic, diverse, atmospheric, emotional and just downright amazing. Some songs are highly technical, some are fairly simple, but they all serve a purpose in the greater whole and still can be enjoyed individually. Daniel Gildenlow is simply a genius. There are so many fine details in the composition and production. Pain of Salvation just has to be heard to understand. And give it some time if you're not into it right away. I heard "In the Flesh" first and fell in love with it, but I had difficulty falling in love with the album. After hearing Remedy Lane and easily getting into it, I put this one back on and was just blown away.
