5 stars Another great album by the one-man-project Cloudkicker. Ben Sharp definitely has matured in his songwriting and, as the two previous works "Beacons" and "Let yourself be huge" already showed, brings more and more variety in his newer songs. While the Math-Metal influence was still strong in Beacons, we now get less riffs and more beautiful multi-layered guitar melodies. Maybe "Fade" is the most accessible of his albums, but not because of a lack of complexity. This time, the complexity is in the nuances of the composition and the true "idea" of a song became clear to me only after hearing the album multiple times. Sharps' skills at the guitars and the bass are magnificient and the drums, even though they are programmed, don't sound out of place and contribute well to the overall experience. If you're into Post Rock/Metal or any similar genre, you have to listen to this album, and visit Cloudkicker's bandcamp page!
