5 stars This debut album by Israeli outfit Teliof was a real nice surprise.

If not truly unique then at least wonderfully adventurous music is what's presented here; where even brief compositions lasting less than 2 minutes can incorporate segments with a great variety of different styles.

Actually, few of the compositions presented stay within one type of music; they are all swirling, wandering creations floating from on style to another or; in most cases; blending elements from a variety of different styles into a whole. The styles most often visited in these compositions are folk music, classical symphonic music, jazz, fusion, symphonic progressive rock and a few different types of art rock. More genres can probably be added by the truckload though, depending on what types of music you're familiar with and how narrow you define your music.

Anyhow, we're served highly melodic songs, with harmonizing as well as dissonant elements; quite a few times served at the same time. The compositions are constantly changing and evolving, yet always manage to create a strong feeling of being one creation rather than a patchwork of different segments thrown together; this a direct result of highly skilled and well planned use of instruments and melodic fragments taking the song forward yet maintaining elements from one or more previous parts.

Highly recommended to followers of progressive rock as well as those who enjoy truly adventurous music.
