    Interview from 2005 / INTERVIEWER: "After hearing The Perfect Element I wanted to know, what is your perfect element?" DANIEL GILDENLÖW: "For me there is no perfect element, the whole thing of the perfect element is the danger of seeking, to become a perfect element, the story is about having a hole in yourself that you are trying to fill in different ways, and this is a way of saying that this person has been given a lot of three of this element and not the last one, which means, in this particular case the missing element is fire, so he sets himself on fire to breathe the perfect element to become this one perfect element, to define balance in a way, if you’re balanced then it’s a good thing, but if you are in concent inbalance and you try to consemate this in your life without have the right tools you can make a lot of damage to yourself and others."

    @Stuntkojima: Seriously? oO This is probably, from the ones I heard, the one I like the most.

    Remedy lane is not better than this. This is their best. And I wouldn't call Daniel's vocals Patton worshipping. They are both vocal actors though!!! And I love them both.!!!

    There is no freaking way Remedy Lane is better than this. This is what Pain of Salvation is all about, and it's god damn perfect.

    Narrowly edged out by One Hour By The Concrete Lake, this is indeed a masterpiece.
