Despite the fact that Paradox displays the musical commonalities inherent to post rock, the sound nevertheless manages to be flexible, fascinating and ostensibly genuine, at least to a certain point. The heavy and abrasive, but at the same time diluted guitar lines conceives an atmosphere of dispersive splendor, that manages to filter the introspective tendencies of the harmonies, fluctuating above the vicinities of its own fugacious and hyperbolic sonorous anatomy.
With overlapping sound waves whose serene and tender calmness generally seeks the contingence of its despondent melodic expansion, Paradox push the boundaries of its lenient and pristine style over the lugubrious edge of its ambitious instrumental narrative, though sometimes the restless configuration of its musical distension doesn't respond easily to its homogeneous rhythmic tonalities. Unfortunately, the group's dissonant uniform tendencies hinder the work a little, since
— just before halfway through the album — monotony starts to become quite a sensible feature within the music, and the sound efficiency hardly recovers from the predictable nature of the melodies. On the contrary, some tracks are so similar to each other that you came under the impression that you are listening to the same music over and over again.
Nevertheless, Paradox is not a bad album, its sound is just too homogeneous most of the time; the technical competence displayed by the musicians are exceedingly wonderful, they certainly know what they are precisely trying to achieve. Unfortunately, sometimes they just lack the essence, vitality and soul to go a little beyond their horizon of creative possibilities. Anyway, the album manages to be satisfactory enough to be appreciated by its salutary virtues, at least to a certain extent. Undoubtedly, Paradox reveals the potential of a very skilled band, that has all the necessary qualities to overcome artistic boundaries and barriers in future releases.
