With a good and detailed guitar work, the calm rhythms are juxtaposed in a very transcendental overview, although you have to be emotionally aligned with their musical proposal, otherwise you will by inevitably bored. The album unfortunately is monotonous for the most part, despite the unraveling of an interesting musical technique. Although the rhythm of the songs in a context is somewhat predictable, they undoubtedly excel in their musical predisposition. An instrumental album that has a mainstay of a constant and natural distribution of sound, Gravity Works is somewhat an exercise of patience, that expands the power of calmness in reluctantly aggrandizing melodies, that feels the intricate power of its notes at the bottom of its profound and relentless diagram of musical principles.
Although it is far from being considered a great album, Gravity Works is a decent record, especially if analyzed in the context of its sonorous expectations. Considered good in an evaluation typified by its own terms, this work has its merits and qualities, being original in a certain point. Nevertheless, it will hardly be a favorite, with the possible exception of a very specific audience, appreciative of really slow tunes. While this album is somewhat good, you can’t avoid the feeling that something was missing. The lack of rapid passages possibly explains the absence of enthusiasm that somehow seems to affect the structure of their style.
Nevertheless, Vinnum Sabbathi seems to be a genuine band, and they are very skilled technically. With a decent level of musical proficiency, they have managed to do a regular album, which shows a work that can evolve to better records in the future. Highly recommended for stoner rock enthusiasts, Gravity Works, while it can’t be considered a great album, still manages to be a decent record, if you by any chance consider yourself an enthusiast of the genre. Otherwise, you will be totally bored.
A perennial work that easily evolves from a slow guitar motion into the vastness of the universe, Gravity Works certainly has qualities that allow the album to be appreciated. But don’t expect too much beyond that. Certain passages will leave you exasperated, and you will hardly find the desire to listen to this record for a second time.
