2 stars I am a huge fan of Pain of Salvation but this is not going me to stop me from burying this album under ten tones of sand. First of all, the firing of Kristoffer Gildenlow was at least naive because Daniel is not as talented in bass guitar as he is as a singer. Secondly, some very calm but not interesting tunes here and there and quality reaching the half of the usual quality of Pain of Salvation. The lyrics are accurate, judging the impact of capitalism but you don't buy an album only because it has good lyrics, do you? It is strange to believe that Disco Queen is the besty track here, which means that the prog music is not in its pinnacle. I like songs like Scarsick and Enter Rain but they simply are not enough to recommend this release to someone. My rating is 2 stars which is really austere but I anticipate the highest quality from a therion like Pain Of Salvation.
