A very interesting ambient musical work, whose thin pellicle of sound hides a profound continuous transcendence, the methodic, intrinsic and quasi-minimalist nature of the work is noteworthy. Nevertheless, given the fact that the album has little melodic variations, its placid and lethargic uniformity gives to its gracious density almost a frozen anatomy, a sonorous paralysis where an ephemeral dimension of dreams cast shadows over the real world, in an interchangeable sensibility of surreal atmospheres, where everything is placed underneath a fog of introspective grace.
While the sonorous atmosphere is intelligently elaborated and profoundly consistent, the work suffers from a certain degree of predictability. Despite its serene and poetic tone, the album resents itself from lack of audacity and innovation, and eventually falls into a generic mainstay, which is somewhat inherent to the genre.
Evidently, there is a lucid and cautious degree of creativity here. The musical style is solid and cohesive, and – following the structural pattern of the genres in question – the artist stay loyal to its sonorous proposal, that nevertheless is genuine, although, as the album progresses, it’s hard not to feel sleepy, as the work do possess somnolent, calm and quiet elements, that relaxes the soul, and cease all the restlessness of the spirit. Maybe, this is the greatest triumph of Hymn of a Voyage Wander, although the album do exhibit a level of technical and methodic proficiency that highlights its undisputable virtues and qualities.
