A very good instrumental album, with very intriguing, subtle and enchanting melodies, unfortunately, Resiliency is very much like every other good post-rock albums that were already released. The album does have its merits and qualities, but unfortunately, does not aggregate anything new, being somewhat incapable to please an audience beyond the ordinary levels of expectancy. With the force of its qualities relying on strong, balanced and expansive harmonies, Resiliency doesn’t explore too well the genre, but it is too conformed to stay on the boundaries that were already shaped several hundred times before. So I think that the album is indeed “resilient”, maybe not in the sense they wanted to be, although it captures very well the essence and meaning of its title.
There is not too much to say about this album, other than the obvious: Resiliency is a good post-rock/ post-metal album. It hardly escapes the obvious, and there is nothing here that you haven’t listened a hundred times before. Good atmospherics, very intriguing and delicate melodies, melancholic harmonies and categorically poetic cadences, very well shaped to create a post-rock album, that turned out to be good, and satisfactory, after all. Nonetheless, it disappoints a little, when a new album doesn’t have that exciting fresh element that dissolves the genre, and transforms it into something new, unpredictable and uplifting.
Resiliency, by Siberia, is a good album, but don’t expect too much of it. You will not travel from inside out throughout the lightning of its rhythms, but it is, of course, a good same old same old. So, if you like when things are just the same, you can check it out this album. While I personally haven’t liked though, for being too common and ordinary, it is an album capable of satisfying a traditional post-rock audience.
