Preaching to the Converted
Pain of Salvation are a prolific progressive metal band from Sweden, led for their entire existence by vocalist, lyricist, and multi-instrumentalist Daniel Gildenlöw. Their latest album Falling Home is a career retrospective of sorts, featuring acoustic versions of songs spanning the band’s career, along with covers of songs by Dio and Lou Reed, as well as a brand new song. While Falling Home may be a welcome look through a 20+ year looking-glass for longtime fans, for everyone else, the album has the tinge of an overly mannered and somewhat indulgent release that can be not unfairly summed up with one descriptor. That is – corny.
