4 stars Morild surprised me with the previous release 'Time to Rest' (2010), on which they trod some exciting paths. That's why I was wondering if successor 'Aves' is a step in right direction. The 75 min. running time doesn't stop this new album being worthy of attention it deserves. Again, meticulous retro-flavoured attitude serves an avenue for the instrumental craftsmanship, interspersed with interludes and emotive singing. The band is comprised of John Aanders Troset (vox, acoustic guitar, percussion), Odd-Roar Bakken (assorted keyboards, electric guitar, ukulele), Alexander Holand (drums), Nils Larsen (bass), Hans Kristoffersen (guitar) and Mari Haug Lund (flute, piano). They perform a vintage sympho-progressive style garnished with folky elements. Thrilling synths and excellent guitar lines, precise rhythm section and pastoral mood exemplify the diverse nature of 'Aves', to keep it fresh through every listen. Compositional quirkiness leaves behind very interesting melodies. The music is quite superb. The production is flawless. The packaging is top notch, featuring lyrics, pictures and images. In the final summing up I'd say that this CD is well worth buying. ASAP.
PH | 4/5 |
