While the mordacity of the songs seems to gracefully reverberate over its inherent perennial cadences, the exponential splendor of serenity engraves all the sensitive majesty that is the embodiment of the songs. The harmonies undertake an extraordinary journey, that notifies the spirit of its creative splendor. So, the work definitely has a profound, proverbially methodic and philosophic nature, highlighted by a style cohesively applied on the anatomy of its discreet, but colorful musical pragmatism, which is indeed very beautiful and functional, but the prevalent calmness that oversees the entire album can be felt as a minor deficiency. Nevertheless, the album presents a formidable musical consistency, that serves to its sensible quest for a higher and more dispersive pattern of artistry.
The guitar lines are quite abrasive, pungent and intense, all the musical paradigms can be felt as a dense version of reality flowing throughout the abstract vitalities of its laborious virtues. The most discreet elements of the music are anomaly hidden behind the shadows of its linear, but irreplaceable patience, that drives a coherent musical diagram throughout the vicinities of its own salutary acquiescence. Unfortunately, chances are high that the listener will eventually become exasperated with so much uneasy tenderness.
There is definitely a restless veracity on the surface of these beautiful harmonies, that reveals a latent splendor and an authorial creativity that has a brutal strength hidden within its latent mordacity and restrained anatomy. The technical skills and the general layer of the music displays a very cohesive sonorous disposition, but there are deceptive elements that makes predictability and sameness to be major deficiencies, upon which the group fails to avoid.
Before This Wilderness Consumes US, in the end, is a decent, curious and gracious, but overwhelmingly diffuse, dispersive and lethargic album. It is very good for specific moments, especially if you want to relax completely alone, in a solitary confinement. Otherwise, you will hear it with genuine joy and enthusiasm, but this sentiments will gradually disappear, as the album evolves. Don’t get me wrong, this is a very good album, but fails to achieve a more salutary standard of excellence.
