With a degree of experimentalism that fears or sees no boundaries in their creative horizons, the band conceives with an authorial level of sagacity and proficiency peripheries of sound that flirts with the laborious contingencies of psychedelic blues and stoner doom in a very dispersive, expansive and sometimes lethargic synergy. Looking for harmonious dissonances that resonates in an entirely different category of sound – possibly to elongate the melodic tissues of the compositions to achieve more sophisticated and genuine patterns of dynamism –, the band continuously displays with melancholic graciousness the exponentially vivid layers of opaque easiness that is a constant feature of their dilated style.
Despite the fact that the sound becomes more homogeneous throughout the album, the quality of the sound and the beauty of the music generally stays in a very satisfactory and cohesive level. The band – loyal to their style and musical proposal – delivers to the audience a very exotic sound, whose discreetly innovative features displays an impressive degree of refined authenticity, though discreetly indebted to the cultural inheritance sculpted by the work of audacious and genuine predecessors.
With a calmer sound that slowly reveals the consistency and the grace of its sensible peculiarities and fusions, Time of the Healer – though predictable in some occasions – is an interesting album, that aggregates and combines a whole new set of elements into a very distinct and elegant set of harmonies, despite some minimal limitations that, in general, doesn’t compromise the longevity scale of their sound. Nevertheless, this is a very interesting album, that certainly will please all the enthusiasts of the genre.
