2 stars A nice song, that's it!

This is the most recent Tangled Thoughts of Leaving composition (or at least the latest they shared), and I do hope it is the prelude to their first studio album, in which they are working on, I believe. The name of this track is "Contextually Inept" and lasts over seven minutes. Once again, the Australians offered it as a free-download single, so it is worth spending some minutes and go to their website.

The track is very cool, starts like an explosion for a few seconds and then calms down. Nice atmospheres are created by piano and guitars, and the song little by little is progressing. Drums appear and mark the rhythm. With good headphones the synth atmospheres can be much better appreciated. After two minutes the song takes another direction, there are repetitive guitar figures, jazzy-like drums and a wonderful piano sound. Then after three minutes we can listen to some repetitive sounds but don't prejudge, because while the seconds pass new elements are being carefully added, but they are not that easy to appreciate. At minute five the song explodes and turns very exciting. It continues like this until the very end.

This is a very nice song that I hope will be included in their upcoming studio album. Worth listening, worth downloading, but if you know my rating style I don't use to give more than two stars to single songs.

Enjoy it!
