4 stars This record is another gift here from Jade Warrior! Compared to the previous album Waves, which reaches an unprecedented level of peace, delicateness & relaxation, Kites often explores more disturbing textures, even sometimes creating upsetting ambiance: the notes and textures are often dramatically sustained for a long time; then, you can suddenly hear unexpected peak sounds, which may make you to startle, especially on side 2. On this side, the presence of string arrangements contribute to give some graceful grandeur to this record. The songs are really varied. The rhythm is slow. The dreamy Fender Rhodes parts are just delightful. The peaceful, relaxing and delicate elements present on the Waves album is still very omnipresent here: there are flutes, violins, percussions, electric & acoustic guitars and female chorus: maybe those mellow bits are even better than on Waves. The little Asian influence here seems more present than ever.
