With a singular sensibility that really knows how and where to insert correctly preciously conceived melodies, the paroxysm of the harmonies is never frozen or doubtful; its colorful tonalities know precisely where they should be, sometimes going for an instinct of creative vitality, to properly fulfill its sonorous potential. The simplicity of treatment in what concerns the general evaluation and dynamics of the rhythm line is also another major point of strength and convergence for the work.
Constants is a simple album, but its melodies were conceived with passion, enthusiasm and sincerity. Displaying a degree of commitment and seriousness that expresses all the singular virtuosities of the artist responsible for this marvelous work of art — Jerome Alexander —, its easy to understand the essence of his musical proposal, as well as the profound intensity that underlies the existential glory of his splendid creativity.
In a general evaluation, while you can't expect too much innovative features on this album, Constants never disappoints, not even for a second. This Message To Bears release — despite its striking simplicity — or maybe, precisely because of it, is a marvelous, poetic and graciously beautiful album, that qualifies serenity as a fundamental virtuosity for the genre, absolutely essential for elegance and refinement to be achieved with renewed glory and majesty.
