Already in the beginning, it's impossible not to become fully impressed by the gracious notion of musical nobility brought in by the artist, and his exceedingly great, expansive and elegant style, probably his most salutary virtue. The majestic poetry of the third track, Faraway Frosty Fields, or the fantastic surrealist beauty of the fourth, The Darkest Night, are primary examples of fabulous anthems of genuine creativity, sonorous drafts of a diffusive reality, whose striking power is effectivelly able to conceive something entirely authentic and fascinating. With a sensational abundance of dense splendor — that engraves the sound as a spectacular domain of sensitive grandiosity —, besides the creative level, the technical elements are also displayed with competent and responsible proficiency. The artist progressively reveals itself as a potential candidate for the next great talent of post rock in the underground scene.
The guitar and even the bass lines — which are difficult to outstand in this genre —, are marvelously conceived and executed. Harmonies' ripples express with vibrant grace the fantastic energy that circulates within the melodies, as well as the general dynamic carried out by the vivid tonalities that serves as fuel for the artist's creative perception. Despite the fact that the musical structure is somewhat simple, the colorful arrangements and the gracefully conceived melodies make Silentium Noctis a sensational, spectacular, fundamental masterpiece, that has all the necessary qualities to become the next big thing in the history of post rock. Balázs Pallai proves with unquestionable veracity, with this short and brief, but paradoxically peculiar and original milestone, that his creativity is a fundamental element for the future development of the genre.
Silentium Noctis is one of those albums where nothing goes wrong. Right, you can say that in such short amount of time — after all, the album is only twenty-six minutes and twenty-six seconds long —, the artist didn't had the opportunity to ruin the album with some hypothetical bad tracks. Fair enough. But I would say that with his gracefully formidable, differentiated and authentically proverbial talent, at least in the present moment he couldn't do anything wrong, even if he tried. This is a very spectacular, wonderful record, whose glorious level of musical gracefulness overcame all possible creative barriers. With technical sensibility and a very dynamic, profoundly introspective sonorous restlessness, this talented Hungarian musician has crafted one of the most incredible, unique and sagacious records in the history of post rock. A work of art that certainly deserves to be recognized as a landmark of the genre.
