With soft, serene lines of guitar, that develops the harmonies from the more pristine elements of its relentless solicitude, Eðli. reveals itself as a very diffusive work, whose dispersive melodies complement the beauty of its intrincate splendor with sensible majesty; though sometimes along the way, you may become a little exasperated by the despondent homogeneity of the style displayed by the artist, its general structure is cohesive, exceedingly concentrated, and delicately inserted into a sonorous vortex of sentimental magnificence.
The delicacy of the artist's sonorous approach is very relevant for the creation of the diluted nature of his style. The uneasiness of all the majestic creative elements that circumnavigates the epicenter of the melodies floats towards the emotional sensitivities of the listener, that inadvertently absorbs the restless urgencies and the quiet resolutions that gravitates in between the external stimulus provided by the impredictable exhilarations of the sound and the sensational rapture that becomes invisible in the horizon of its dense expectations.
Nevertheless, the guitar work displayed on this album is quite magnificent, and the diligent proficiency exhibited by the artist deserves praise. Ju. certainly knows how to conceive a marvelous sound, creating music that has soul, vigor and essence, being neither too technical nor too dispersive. The predominance of a salutary wave of calmness in the music — and yet, concomitantly, the vitality displayed by the guitar lines are quite resonant and resourceful — remains the basis of its splendorous and graceful strength.
Unfortunately, the album has some monotonous passages, though in general, this doesn't compromise the spectacular degree of beauty and excellence displayed in the music. In fact, Eðli. is a very good album — that has an original, dense and intrincate musical layout —, that deserves to be highlighted, and mostly, widely appreciated. Undoubtedly, art rock and progressive rock enthusiats will find this album interesting, to say the least. Despite some minor stylistic limitations, Eðli. manages to be a relevant musical experience, that has all the necessary qualities to be classified as a marvelous work on its genre.
