4 stars A real good debut album by US outfit Edensong here.

The foundation of their compositions seems to be pastoral, mellow themes with elements of folk music and classical music incorporated in explorations where acoustic guitar, flute and violin are central. As the compositions evolve the intensity of these instruments rise, folk-tinged rhythms or regular drums are added; and the songs seems to gravitate towards art rock territories most times; especially when the Hammond makes it appearance - often underscored by electric guitars or; in a few instances, cello.

The cello adds some chamber rock elements into this folk, classical and art rock mix when utilized. As the topping, most tunes also feature heavier riff segments towards the end; some of them closing in on prog metal in expression.

It's a remarkebly well made and highly diverse creation we're dealing with here - lots of nerve and tension provided in a mostly subtle manner - and one to check out for listeneres with eclectic musical tastes.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
