While the music is predominantly slow, is competently executed, and displays a degree of space efficiency that consistently energizes the sound, pulverizing it with a solemn and revolving expectancy. Their style is also dynamic enough to avoid monotony, and the melodies are vividly designed to reclaim a perceptive degree of virtuous lucidity, as they maintain a homogeneous tenacity within their context of derelict, calm and sober serenity, but showcases some degree of versatility underlining the melancholy of their vast, pervasive and disruptive ascendant inclinations.
With a coherent, grandiloquent and magnanimous display of sound proficiency, Bloom reveals itself an intelligent, creative and visceral album, that gradually overcomes the shadows of its own hidden, laborious and restrained brutality, as guitar lines cautiously evolve to ignite a despondent aggressiveness, that little by little escalates, until its lugubrious essence takes the soul of the listener by storm. In a solitary landscape of infinite darkness – where the music that intuitively talks to your conscience dilacerates distant horizons made of everlasting sounds –, this album definitely conceives a personal dimension of splendorous rapture, where everything can be deciphered through a new perspective.
A fantastic album with an uncommonly creative level of authorial virtues – that gets better and better as the work progresses – Bloom is a fantastic musical achievement, that should be widely celebrated by the audiences and genre enthusiasts. With a vigorous sonorous identity that highlights a wonderful level of originality, Minor Movements has certainly conceived this record as a succession of formidable and graceful post rock symphonies. Undoubtedly, a dispersive and elusive work of art; without any fear of being precipitated, I think it already can be considered one of the best post rock albums of the year.
