I'm all for bands reinventing themselves, but don't throw the baby out with the bath water. There's little to nothing left of the band who created Remedy Lane. I was never their biggest fan, so maybe more long term fans can see the good stuff in it, but that's it for me.
It would take a phenomenal response to Road Salt 2 for me to give it a look.
the band is awesome so I think they are worth to go through! the most amazing is that they develop a lot with each record! even though most of the people would like them to play the same music all the time. enjoy!
