With delicate, poetic and vibrating musical tonalities, Identity has calmer and intense moments, perfectly balanced in an artistic panorama of predominantly serene colors, that amalgamates the moments into a very clear and functional atmosphere. Incorporating the stronger components of its music into the fantastic sound of a soul that perpetuates the majesty of a meaningful serenity, Ayden really has created a very formidable work of art, dilapidating the musculature of sound into a permanently fragmented dimension of continual expression, that reiterates the consistent vigor of its subjective apex in the most lancinating notes of its unbound lucid consistency.
Perennial, inquisitive and beautiful, Identity is post rock displayed in a very splendorous style. Like seeing a thousand suns appearing in the horizon simultaneously, Ayden has at the graceful peak of its musical abilities the capacity to replicate the greatness of an artistic inquest as genuine as the reinvention of a genre.
Although some moments are undoubtedly a little more common and ordinary, if compared to the most powerful and beautiful passages – mainly characterized by a lancinating paradox of sensitive rhythms, that undergoes a fragile distance from its point of dissonance, to return inadvertently fragmented by a melodic sunrise of intense fragility –, the poetical rhetoric underlined by the sentimental cohesion of the music is a major collision orchestrated by true inventive geniuses of a genuine immaterial art. Floating in a skyline of oceanic proportions, you feel yourself completely overwhelmed by a cosmos of sound. Identity is a very interesting experience, and you definitely should listen to this album.
