Despite the fact that the album is very short, the level of beauty and originality displayed in the work is exceptionally magnificent, for a debut. Clearly, this is the work of a proficient and experienced artist, that knows exactly in which direction he wants to take his creativity and what he must do to achieve his artistic goals. With a deeply authorial sound — and a marvelous technical sensibility —, anxiety reveals itself to be an excellent masterpiece, from start to finish, that deserves to be fully praised by all enthusiasts of the genre.
The melodies, in general, are simple, but also masterfully crafted. They flow easily throughout the sound, and from the very beginning — with the exceptionally brief, but wonderfully serene and majestic first track Predestination (Intro) —, the artist delivers gracefully consistent and expansive bridges of melancholy, that works splendidly over a monumental galaxy of sentimental vitalities, whose sound incorporates a dense, but lurid expression of introspective solitude.
A very exceptional album, that has everything to impress and to delight post rock enthusiasts everywhere, anxiety, by waiting for the wind, is a magnificent and unexpected debut. With a splendid style, and a wonderfully cohesive musicality — whose structure reinvigorates as much as respects the general principles of the genre —, this majestic record has no faults nor negative aspects whatsoever. Perfect in style, development, sonority and displaying graceful harmonies entirely compatible with the density of its own lugubrious nature, with a length that leaves the listener wanting more, anxiety is a sensational state of the art work, that deserves to be a massive success in the underground community.
