4 stars One can always analyze an album down to its contents, track by track and sound after sound. Something I've recently realized however is that music, and especially this kind of ambient influenced music may often be better understood and described through the musical colours and landscapes it creates in the mind absorbing it. Moods and moments. One of the latter happened some nights ago when I was listening this album. While "Passing Away" was playing, I happened to gaze out of my window. The blue hour was just at its fullest and the crescent moon shone its cold light down on me. I felt like a special connection, between myself, the early night sky and the song. And that is what Hammock's "Raising Your Voice... Trying to Stop an Echo" in my opinion is all about. Those little stunning moments of life, expressed musically through those layers of post-rockish ambient that Hammock have specialized in. Beautiful, flowing, painting the palette of all kinds of blue emotions that we are all familiar with, more or less. That kind of stuff that makes the little details lose themselves in the background, drawing a bigger picture.
