you could edit in the tracklist
Part One was pretty cool; I hope this will be as good (I don't expect them to go back to their former roots).
Modern progressive music is crap.
For the most part, yeah. Not these guys.
One of my favorite bands. Looking forward to this.
Added the tracklist.
So amped about this.
Digging: My Expansive Awareness - My Expansive Awareness

1. Road Salt Theme
2. Softly She Cries
4. Healing Now
5. To The Shoreline
6. Break Darling Break (Bonus track)
9. Of Salt (Bonus track)
10. The Deeper Cut
11. Mortar Grind
12. Through the Distance
13. The Physics of Gridlock
14. End Credits
Is this 1979 just a coincidence? It would be awsome to hear POS covering the Pumpkins.
Nice I'll have to check it out
So how high do these guys rank on the cornyness meter? Are they as bad as Dream Theater?
They don't sound like Dream Theater at all. Much more subtly skilled at their instruments. Check out The Perfect Element or Remedy Lane.
Check Entropia as well, their first album, awesome stuff.
Hoping this will be better than Road Salt One. They don't even have to go back to actually being progressive, just as long as they write music that's actually compelling.
They have nothing to do with Dream Theater, POS approach is much more emotional, and they rarely drift into useless wankery. The perfect element is much closer to acts such as Anathema or Riverside than the likes of DT or Symphony X.
I haven't heard Road Salt One, yet. I want to hear Road Salt One and Two
'Hoping this will be better than Road Salt One. They don't even have to go back to actually being progressive, just as long as they write music that's actually compelling.'
Pretty much. Remedy Lane, TPE and BE (if you can stand the pretense there) are fantastic albums - shame they couldn't keep it going.
Remedy Lane is one of my favourite albums, but I've learned my lesson lately - will look for a stream before buying this one.
I can't imagine seeing these guys and Opeth live.
I am pretty excited.
Digging: Pope Francis - Wake Up!
their ex drummer was such an inspiration
Digging: Morton Feldman - String Quartet No. 2
some of the older stuff sounds like dream theater or fates warning kinda stuff, but without the cheesiness or endless wankery.
new stuff sounds like prog foo fighters. i was really surprised to hear "linoleum" after hearing about these guys in prog metal discussions.
Pain of Salvation have literally nothing to do with either FW or DT.
FW and DT core influences begin and end in the Genesis/Rush/Pink Floyd triptych.
PoS, on the other hand, are influenced from Broadway musicals (that explains their obsession with concept albums all the way through) and bands that crossover genres, such as Faith No More.
Furthermore, the conviction of PoS to stretch or completely alter their sound is perpetual, something that does not hold in the same extent for DT and FW.
^^Couldn't say it better man.
Listening to a song like A Trace of Blood makes me think of those kind of prog metal bands. I'm not
saying they sound exactly the same, but I can hear some similarities. Mostly in the vocals, though
nowhere near as cheesy as DT
Road Salt One took a few listens to really enjoy. once i did it became a great album . cant wait for this one
