4 stars Geographically atmospheric - 95%

The first record from 2009 delivers very well constructed atmospheres of ethnical instruments, the melodies here are less prominent for the sake of the overall feeling of the combined instruments. Some songs are calmer than others, ranging from almost ambient straight to more rock oriented ones without ever contradicting the concept of the album.

It is note it than it's also not afraid of pulling the guitar and more conventional sounds including vocals only when they seem to be really needed to convey an idea or an emotion. sometimes there may only be an almost weeping instrument on the front (like "apamea" and "darkita" that seem to be like trying to speak to you about a story that without knowing the language they speak you're left wondering about the message but not the emotion and mystery in how they say it.

Overall it is very good record, i found it very well thought and finished without ever feeling like rush to get a song to a certain point already instead focusing on what was happening then an enjoying those sounds before evolving the song into the next parts
