With melancholic harmonies that feels more skeptical and cynical than innocent or dramatic, the group knows how to use time and slowness very efficiently, though more occasionally, they also attack furiously the grave surface of their music with tempestuous and abrasive melodies. With the soul of their abundant, but dispersive musical qualities effectively delineating each element of their cohesive sonorous devices, hazards of swimming naked discreetly dwells into a proficient, proverbial, graceful and unpredictable degree of versatility, navigating discreetly even into post-classical territory, expanding their sonorous and majestic elusiveness into a latent, but sensible splendor, that definitely makes their music a mosaic of subtle and perennial dissonances.
The perfect soundtrack for an everlasting dream of imponderable sensitivities and unexpected consequences, take great joy – as precisely the name suggests – is an album upon which you can take great joy while listening to it, as your senses undoubtedly will travel to distant, but warm places, where a surreal, fugacious and vague reality will paint life with a more colorful and poetic vitality, with the exact tonalities upon which hazards of swimming naked impregnates their music.
Despite the fact that the album is somewhat repetitive – at least to a certain extent – take great joy is a marvelous, flexible, genuine, vivacious and delightful sonorous experience. You can definitely feel a vibrant enthusiasm flowing all over you. Despite minor limitations, this album is a very elegant and satisfactory work of art. Mandatory, as a matter of fact, for enthusiasts of post rock.
