Road Salt Two (CD)
Not a step farther from it's twin brother, Road Salt Two continues the legacy of the new-born, hard-rocking and pretty looking Swedish progsters through the grounds of groovy and nostalgic hard rock. It has all the elements that made Road Salt One what it is: raw guitar sound, excessive use of mellotron and 70's reminiscent keys, conventional song structures, dark and sometimes mellow lyricism. Yeah, nothing seems to have changed, and that's not something to worry about, 'cause Road Salt's Two predecessor was a good and enjoyable album. Having kept the unique recorded-live-from-the basement-like production, the band tries to take flight with no further additions to their sound, depending mainly on the songwriting. We get the usual mid-tempo pieces like "Softly She Cries" or the riff-driven ones like "Conditioned". Then we have the melodic, yet angry "Mortar Grind" and the blues'y "Eleven" to add some diversity and edge. We also get the usual screaming outbursts and the mellotron carpets, featured in most of the songs, which as in the case of Road Salt One never managed to become memorable pieces
