Being real slow music, that gravitates towards the contrary summary of a conventional journey, The Swiss Illness reiterates inside its wonderful set of imaginary principles a great scale of vivacious rapture, capable of overwhelming the most latent solitude that relies inside the heart of the listener. Under a fragile, but imperiously dense surface of agony, a calm and transcendental search for completeness draws an infinite horizon of sentimental apologies, that carries all your thoughts towards an invisible intersection of harmonies, eager to levitate directly into a lose configuration of dreams, that drowns over a stream of disoriented oceans of splendor. And this goes as long as the album is on, as the peacefully tranquil atmosphere of the songs is propagated by the sensible and delicate beauty of the constant strength of an everlasting palace of sound, that can never be formally diluted.
The almost ecstatic motion that features throughout the whole album produces a sense of tranquility, that never compromises the general structure of the songs. While there is a certain absence of stronger melodies, the music present in The Swiss Illness seems to be made deliberately to conform to a peaceful and transcendental world of dreams, where quietness and serenity are sacred mandatory laws, that relies undisturbed by the grievances of the outside world.
A beautiful album with a very singular set of qualities, The Swiss Illness shapes a different category of musical distinctions, that reads throughout the peculiar laws of its own contrasts, promoting a very personal, introspective kind of revolution: a revolution of silence, a revolution of calmness, a revolution of solitude, a revolution of respect for our own necessary moments of loneliness. With a sonorous plasma of inherent human grace, that can be filtered by an invisible prism of expansive sensibility, this record certainly stands as a beautiful monument to tranquility. A calm, delightful and increasingly necessary ode to slowness and calmness, in a turbulent, agitated, ever progressive world, of constantly increasing hurry and rapidness.
