The artist definitely knows how to display a perfect equilibrium, never exceeding the simplicity that is the basic principle of its cohesive formula. Over a modest structure, harmonies dance in a very linear, but flexible placidity, that creatively revolves around an axis of splendorous, but coherent possibilities. Way more grounded in perennial suggestive feelings of wonder and serenity than lugubrious melancholy and consternation, IV is a transcendental journey through the creative vastness of a genuine talent, more preoccupied with the lucid disposition of its harmonies than the technical grievances of its musical anatomy.
The album is simple, direct and very objective, and extracts beauty from the magnificent and dynamic organic virtues of its fantastic melodic devices, without hyperbolic or dehydrated artifices. The fifth track – Medieval Skies – resumes beautifully the gracious and vivaciously natural beauty of the artist’s music. This song is a wonderful wave of salutary and splendorous majesty, that exceptionally projects your soul to the vastness of a perfectly poetic alignment, fulfilled by the grace of a genuine sensibility, touched by the spectacular availability of life that is hidden beyond its ordinary elements.
Fief proves with this gloriously magnificent album that beauty is closely associated with simplicity. Utilizing wonderfully this amazing quality as the preponderant element of his music, he proves unequivocally that creativity, genuine inspiration and true sensibility –
working altogether – are extraordinary components, way more important than any artificial technicalities available. In fact, these virtues are everything an artist of his formidable grandiosity needs, to make a fantastic state of the art album.
