Forty-eight minutes long, the album has ten tracks: 1) Bees Around The Lime Tree; 2) Memory Gore; 3) Confession Bay; 4) It's A Low; 5) (Decompression); 6) Carcass;
7) The Golden Bough; 8) Palm Hex / Arndale Chins; 9) Babes Of The Plague; 10) Four Bibles; with a discreet nostalgia vibe that sometimes remembers bands like Fleetwood Mac and The Bolshoi – though mostly in the atmosphere, not in the general layers of the harmonies –, the sound of Hey Colossus is a clear, vivid and elegant conjuncture of serene and affable symphonies, though moderately restrained to a certain degree of artistic pragmatism, where there is a certain absence of audacity and energy; nevertheless, this album has marvelous songs that exposes a band with a high creative potential, backed by tremendous technical skills.
Despite the fact that the album keeps itself mostly on an ordinary level of creativity, the band displays a peculiar and organic style, with a salutary and genuine set of musical capabilities, that it’s impossible to ignore, as they are good enough to avoid genre commonalities, never being predictable nor generic. With a proverbial degree of proficiency, Four Bibles not only consolidates its worthwhile contributions, as well as demonstrates that, stylistically, the genre presents possibilities that deserves to be better explored. Hey Colossus definitely opens new doors with this marvelous work of art, that will stimulate creatively similar bands, despite the inherently restrictive standards that the genre may present on its sonorous anatomy.
Definitely a very good album, Four Bibles is a work to be vastly appreciated, with its qualities far surpassing its mostly imperceptible deficiencies. With an expansive, graceful and diffusive sound, this is an album that will easily please all the enthusiasts of good old rock’n’roll with a soft taste of nostalgia, that will resolutely revolve around the density of a sensible, yet restless style of music.
