That transition from 'Of Two Beginnings' to 'Ending Theme' is genius + works amazingly live too. Beside that, I always forget that 'Ending Theme' has offical video... and 'Undertow'... silly videos 4 two amazing songs.
Not sure how I feel about them going "back to their roots". Road Salt was the freshest thing any prog band has done in the last few years (apart from maybe Leprous their minimalistic hard-hitting approach on Coal), so going back to straight progmetal... I don't know. We'll have to wait and see, as always with Daniel.
So, Remedy Lane Re:Visited is on the way. A double album with a live recording and a modern remaster. I remain kinda indifferent, but I guess the live album might be cool. Also, according to Daniel, In the Passing Light of Day (the new album, possibly 2016) will be heavier than what they've been doing.
@postkobaian - Coal 2013? You blended Leprous w/ POS here. :> / anyway, i'm glad 2 hear that Remedy Lane will have some ReVisit that it deserves. But i'll pray more 4 'Perfect Element' revisit. Btw, that album could be a synonym 4 a perfect dreadful production album. But with Daniel is not easy... no matter how bad production is, you cant kill a soul and spirit that streams under the surface. I think that's the reason i love Daniel.
I didn't enjoy much Falling Home either; except for the covers and the songs that turned out very different to previous studio recording versions. Let's see how the new album turns out; considering my taste I will probably love it --it's PoS. I highly doubt they manage to top their best album though, Coal from 2013.
I don't understand the point of stuff like Falling home. Your typical "unplugged" record filled with half-assed acoustic re-recordings of songs that didn't need it, some okay covers, and a new song (Falling home, which is kind of good I guess) that could have been released as a single or a promo for an upcoming album. I really hate it when bands waste their time releasing stuff no one wants (not even fans) instead of working on the stuff everyone is asking for: A new fucking Album.
i just realised how a lot of todays bands are trying really hard to rock the world...but Daniel come and writes something like 'Linoleum'... it's like - damn, who writes like that? He make it look so easy but that songwriting is a pure gift.
v Well, that back to TPE 1 story was up-to-date 10 years ago, just before Scarsick was prepared to be released...RoadSalt 1&2 are the work of a genius...if you don't hear POS uniqueness it those 2 albums, then just find another love, mate.
funny how after The Perfect Element: Part I, the quality of this band's output just went on a steady decline. their latest efforts are truly awful, it's amazing going back to TPE and seeing how things changed so drastically
