|It's hard to pin point exactly
the source of the songs. Especially the label you
want to give the samples. There's certainly jazz
in here (especially on "29
February"), but also an oriental
sound ("Mandolin Thatre"
Mache", one of the best songs on here)
or a violin on the previously mentioned "Requiem
For Stateway (Sounds Of The Bricks)".
There are horns on "4:15
and a whole mixture of everything on "Snowblind
(Doubting Thomas)". It's a wild mix
and match, with the sounds contrasting each other,
However also finding a common ground to benefit
|And as said, the tracks are either
longer, up to twelve minutes (the nevertheless never
boring "Vieux Piano"),
but more often in the five to six minute spectrum.
Or they are short. In the seconds rather than minutes.
However, these short glimpses in another glimmer
of an idea, are at times true precious little gems.
Be it "The
Verve" or "Careless"
with the perfectly fitting voice samples, or "40's
In The Morning" with another weather
|With the conclusion being rather
simple: this is excellent. Thaione truly grew with
this task, coming with something unexpected and
loveable. He's look into soundtracking the winter
months, is cool, with too much heart to be cold.
And just as much an enjoyed listening experience
in the Summer months as is it is from April to January,
or the other way around. Therefore it was quite
a wise decision to let the music speak for itself.
