3 stars The Olympic Games as your conceptual music composition assignment. Bring your best.

Many may be the reasons why Siinai chose this athletic concept, but let me skip on to where it matters, the music.

An 8 track release with all kind of epic cliches, new fresh ideas, some extraordinary sections and their according highlights.

SIINAI's "Olympic Games", 2011, is somewhat quiet diverse and not that tupsy-turvy psychedelic (nevertheless quiet experimental), as to fit the Krautrock tagging solely. There are close connections to the 70's and 80's synth/rock/pop era, as to more Progressive Electronic influences in the Berlin electronic music school's vein, as to the Post Rock/Math Rock's beat and guitar works.

But beyond these possible labelings, Siinai possesses a very personal focus and even from the start, (this their first release according to this page), a quiet defined musical language, which adds up a lot in this world of "sound-alikes".

What works out, works out perfectly, far from the Olympic's symbolism alone, which by the way, everyone who has witnessed this event has his own treasurable, unmemorable or indifferent thoughts about, therefore anyone can relate to the music without the Olympic Games's previous knowledge.

Some bronze, a bit more of silver and some real gold.

***3.5 PA stars.
