4 stars An undeniably outstanding debut from one of the genre's smartest and original bands, "Entropia" features everything that is (and to some extent remains) Pain of Salvation-- big, aggressive melodies with irresistible vocals juxtaposed to soft and delicate interludes scattered throughout, and usually within the very excellent heavy stuff.

There are many gems to be discovered here, from the memorable songs to the band's playing, which is a cut above the rest in regards to skill and composition. Solos are relatively standard fare, rather, the songs themselves are examples of a sum of their parts, being fine and varied arrangements featuring a total sound as opposed to one playing dominating.

Daniel's vocals deserve special mention as well, having an immediately attractive timbre but also a tremendous range which dances from high-pitched wail to brooding growl with gymnastic ease; his pure singing voice is a sheer joy as well.

Highly, highly recommended for all (but not just) fans of heavy music.

Songwriting: 5 Instrumental Performances: 4 Lyrics/Vocals: 5 Style/Emotion/Replay: 4
