4.5 superbtom6 | February 22nd 12

Be is one of the most incredibly overblown pieces of music I've ever heard, but also one of the most dense and ambitious. It deserves praise for daring to aim so high, but also criticism for not realizing its own faults. What to make of an album this grandiose and self-important? It almost feels like Be itself doesn't know. Love it or hate it, though, you can't deny it's a remarkable, incomparable opus. A lot of potential was sacrificed in the name of lyrical concept, but I dare you to listen to cuts like "Iter Impius" and "Imago (Homines Partus)" and say Be is musically lacking.

'Be' is an epic record, combining the best of Pain of Salvation with an ambitious concept and an orchestra. Definitely worth a listen.

Conceptually interesting, musically lacking. This album gives up way too much just to tell its story, but still contains some of Pain of Salvation's best work to date. I can't explain why, but I enjoyed this so much more than Remedy Lane and Perfect Element Part 1.
