Gently downcast rock, lightly applied. Hints of Ren-fare prog (Pink Floydian keyboards help in that regard) with a pillowy touch. It's got a heavy-hearted feel, despite the high whispery male vocals. Could have been goth if it rocked harder, but this is more like brooding self-examination music for prog fiends, with that classically epic feel to it. Similarities to Citay abound.|
1,2 are notably more intense than others. FCC clean.
1- Gentle mid/fast beat, later gets more soaring and searching
2- Snappy mid/fast beat, some crashing cymbal passages (one in 5/4, even). Hits too many conventional rock buttons for my liking
3- Dreamy, with high, puffy vocals and a hint of disturbance. Builds into big flowery fireworks
4- Soft mystical acoustic riffing, slowish feel. Softly crashing.
5- Quite light-proggy, a nice energy. Includes an instrumental rock-out interlude before a lingering coda
6- Dancing midtempo arpeggios, a nice effect. Even has a bit of a beat.
7- Tense proggy opening, serious mood overall. Dark and brooding near the end.
