With a sentimental purpose that anticipates the linear solidarity of its serene stature, the sound of The Last Years, although exceedingly predictable at the axis of its evolving preamble, is thoroughly charismatic as well as pragmatic. Its strong sense of resilience certainly evokes an intensely human everlasting hope, that emerges from beyond the waves of its gracious sense of peculiar infinity. Touching upon melodies that engrave over the omniscient presence of life its affinity for dramatic and dense intonations, The Last Years’ sonorous style is surrounded by a pungent gravity that ostensibly intimidates the duality of its dilapidated precipices of functional creativity, in the impalpable colors of precisely filtering allegorical harmonies.
A sound perfect to dream, to relax, even to sleep – although it is not monotonous –, The Last Years proclaims over the conscience of the listener the ambition to take over an enormous journey towards a more reflexive and simple perspective of existence, where everything has to be calm, to be felt as precisely as the melodies deliver their peculiar reading of realities. On the technical aspects, despite its overwhelming simplicity, the style of the duo is clearly built on a diagram of extravagant sensitivity, where the sound functions primarily as a soft vehicle to a more comprehensive state on the perfection of serenity.
Although you can’t expect exactly anything new about The Last Years on the grounds of innovation, the record is an interesting exemplar of organic ambient music, and does expose with a formidable degree of competence the traditional qualities of the music, working along on its wall of sound a major density of continuous tonalities. This album certainly can be felt as a pathway to conquer and to enjoy a more glorious venture on the acquisition of sensibility.
