Here we go again - another 5 star outing from Pain of Salvation. The much anticipated follow up to the amazing Road Salt One is finally with us, and after many repeated plays it is easy to review it. Brilliant, thought-provoking, boundary pushing, sensitive, humorous, aggressive, articulate - I could go on. If you like RS1, you will love this. If you didnt, you don't like prog. Conditioned is a simple but addictive guitar driven song, with a Led Zepp feel to it. Follow this with the beautiful Healing Now, and you know you are in for a rollercoaster ride. The new version of Mortar Grind is as good, if not better than the original. 1979 is a gorgeous short track and yet again shows off Daniel Gildenlow's great vocals. And, as for The Physics of Gridlock? You couldnt get more proggy if you tried. The best release of 2011 by the best band on the planet.
