With a cohesive and extensive musical unity, State of Mind is as gracefully concise as it is powerfully remarkable. Capturing an atmosphere of dispersive, but concomitantly explosive sonorous diligence, the band astutely conceives a style so bright, refined and elegant that — despite the fact that departs from the general commonplaces of the genre — they manage to fully develop their creative sensibilities to overcome structural limitations, sucessfully sculpting splendid harmonies in flexible, expansive, colorful and vivid tonalities.
With an audacious and passionate sensitive disposition, that realigns the sound's most abrasive and organic elements into a more dissolute musical diagram, State of Mind manages to display highly heterogeneous melodies, while at the same time the signature style of the band can be perceived as distinctly recognizable and familiar. Exhibiting a fantastic set of qualities that undoubtedly qualifies Black Sheep as expressively singular, State of Mind reveals a band that unquestionably stands out as an amazingly peculiar act within the genre, displaying easily a degree of lucidity, sensibility and technical competence, that perfectly converges to a horizon of gracefully impeccable, original and innovative standards.
Masterfully abrasive, dynamic and powerfully genuine, State of Mind is a highly vigorous, disruptive and delightful album, that came to introduce more proverbial and genuine elements to the genre. With a degree of sensibility that knows how to extract precisely the most gracious, unpredictable and tenacious components within a musical framework — with the aim to conceive a tempestuous palace of desolation made of hazardous symphonies, strong enough to survive a succession of collisions with the most brutal features of the human nature —, Black Sheep rises as a monumental axis of horizontal creativity and splendor, willing to show to audiences a more redemptive, consistent and veracious way to make music.
