'Delusion Sound' quietly loops its way over a background of drone, building its way to a drumbeat, echoey vocals and understated guitars. The whispery harmonies intrigue and tranquilize as the song slowly gravitates towards its conclusion.
'Third Sight' gently pulsates at first over a single note, as the background landscapes become more visible and almost unsteady in tones. 'Facing South' is very short compared to the other tracks and retains the Eno-like feel that the album often visits.
The album closes with the beautiful 'Morning Sun'. Almost all of the song is a hazy instrumental; there's a brief charming vocal two thirds of the way in, before giving way to more shaky ambience.
Each of the 4 tracks within, evolve organically, and take shape without ever feeling forced or rushed. The album itself is a trip; a mellow and cloudy state of mind.
What Landing have achieved can easily be defined as intelligent soundscapes, encompassed in hushed tones. There's a beauty within the dreamlike melodies that elevates the multi facets of the music. EL Paraiso have excelled themselves once more by releasing a record that reaches further into the listeners consciousness and stays there long after listening; relax and float downstream; it's worth it.
