5.0 out of 5 stars A truly inspiring, epic piece of music..., 3 Sept. 2005
This review is from: Salvation (Audio CD)
The reason i call Salvation a piece of music is that in order for you to fully appreciate it, you really need to listen to it from start to finish. I've listened to this album maybe twenty times and i still find it a worthy investment of 70 minutes of my time. The music takes on a different form with every listen, often to suit my mood. Therefore no two listens are the same.
Its hard to know where to begin with the music. Cult Of Luna demonstrate the ability to make a musical experience a cinematic one. From passages that are so ambient and tranquil they could put you to sleep to an earth shattering, raging heaviness that i can only describe as apocalyptic. Salvation is a concept album and one which i think has been written very well. Somehow all the songs MUST be played in the correct order and despite the dynamic highs and lows within each song, you constantly feel the theme is being built upon, song by song, until the album finally climaxes. Its hard to know if the lyrics or the music of this concept album take the lead role. I feel that they go hand in hand. To drop possible influences or to draw comparisons to the music of Salvation would do Cult Of Luna an injustice. I can only say that anybody who enjoys being taken on a musical journey of peaks and valleys and anybody who appreciates the broad spectrum of music from light to heavy may find something in Salvation.
Cult Of Luna have created something special with Salvation - I'm intrigued as to what the Swedish septet might follow it up with.
