Songs in album Pain Of Salvation - One Hour By The Concrete Lake 1998. Pain Of Salvation - Spirit Of The Land. Pain Of Salvation - Inside. Pain Of Salvation - The Big Machine. Pain Of Salvation - New Year's Eve. One Hour by the Concrete Lake takes a more thorough and factual approach to its concept than its predecessor, Entropia. A number of facts are given in the album booklet, with a list of sources provided at the end. The chronological order of songs is the same as the track order as opposed to Entropia and a number of the events and places are real. For example, the Black Hills in North America and Lake Karachay in the former USSR. The album is a concept piece that does not contain a weak cut. The most obvious influence on the disc is Dream Theater, but there are others present. The vocals are very much in the vein of Geoff Tate and Ronnie James Dio. If you like your prog with a hard edge, this one is a highly recommended CD. Pain of Salvation is Daniel Gildenlöw, Frederik Hermansson, Johan Langell, Kristoffer Gildenlöw, and Johan Hallgren. 21 July 1998.

In my opinion, it is easily Pain of Salvation's most underrated album. It's full of classic POS songs. The concept is one that I haven't fully figured out quite yet. I know it deals with a man searching for the right way of living. The first track 'Spirit of the Land' is simply just a :43 intro to the album. That leads into one of my favorite POS songs, 'Inside'. The intro is absolutley fantastic, Hermansson's keyboard playing is top notch. This leads into more of a mystical keyboard line used in the verses. Gildenlow comes in stating I was told the pain and hunger was not fault'. It's a great song for Gildenlow, he's at his best here. And that is really saying something if you've heard his voice before. Karachay, the entire lake, is now covered with concrete. To be or not to be a wheel in the big machinery That is not the matter of the game Just as long as you can sense the frame of the big picture Wheels make The Machine.
