A very sensitive musical journey, Whitestoned as an album certainly is the product of an artist excessively sensible to music, being a gifted and amazingly talented songwriter, a conclusion that strikes the listener as quite obvious, already in the first few seconds of the first track. Whitestoned, although it could easily be labeled as an easy and quite accessible album for everyone at first, as a matter of fact is highly recommendable only for those individuals who already have been initiated to the genre. Undoubtedly, the most prominent feature on the music is a progressive subtlety, as I would point it out. Although discrete at how he inserts his poignant boldness in his music, Alexander Saykov is no ordinary musician, being highly innovative in practically all exterior and interior layers of his deeply vast and methodical musical appreciation, critically immense in the landmarks of the ulterior standards unseen in the overall premises of his profusely poetic and vigorously unabridged musical approach, firmly grounded in a heart-bound beautiful execution of sound, that I would hardly expect before listening to this album.
Alexander Saykov’s music is remarkably beautiful. Melodic, dense, multifaceted and philosophic, is enthralled by a poetic and eventful kindness, as well as a warm delicacy, that easily shapes the skies of his perfunctory ethereal fascination, that seems to be harmonically correlated with his vastly creative artistic skills, that frantically impersonates emotional developments, and anticipates enormous levels of melodically soft and artistically created harmonies, rearranged in a personal paradise of rewarding vivacious infinity, whose goals are all but emotionally demanding.
Besides being one of the most beautiful albums that I have ever heard on the genre, the delicate touch of soft melancholic beauty into each and every track is remarkably and intrinsically disruptive, drawing bridges of a derisively calm turmoil inside the prosperous devotional benevolence of a giant sphere of urban musical luminescence. Whitestoned, for sure, is a great, rewarding and beautiful album, fulfilled with the most drastic and compelling devices the genre could ever had, as the artist responsible for the creation of such a magnificent, complete and outstanding masterpiece is a very sensitive, intuitive, skilled and resourceful musician, whose straightforward and natural excellence goes way beyond the ordinary highlights of art.
So, Whitestoned, in my personal evaluation, is undoubtedly an incredible and very delightful album. If you like a more glitch-flavored, chill influenced, lounge dispersed, and melodically granulated ambient music, then Whitestoned, by Alexander Saykov, is the perfect album for you. Virtuously poetic, insanely urbane, vigorously artistic and creatively unique, intertwining serenity, sincerity, rapture and autonomy between notes, everything on this album is perfectly arranged in an objectively captivating degree of unimaginable originality. Before listening, be sure that this record certainly has the potential to be the album of your life!
