Full Length Review: OH HIROSHIMA In Silence We Yearn

In Silence We Yearn
Release Date: November 6, 2015
Ellipse: The guitar sets a nice atmosphere, the voice enters in a smooth way, with a touch of melancholy, then drums enter in a good rhythm, not too much not too little, in the right mix to finally start with all the energy when we less expect it although the guitar line gets a little too repetitive and old fast even while it’s a tad fancy.
Mirage: Loved the drum intro, and in general the whole vibe of the song, the guitar precise riffs made it better, although t I liked the voice I felt this track should have been instrumental rather than sung. Other than the repetitive guitar lines at moments it is my favorite track on this album.
Ruach: Liked the intro while the drum felt natural and in sync the guitar makes some Arabian vibe with the fingerings. It is my second favorite. Yet another theme I felt the singing while nice ruined the vibe of what should have been an instrumental in my opinion.
Holding Rivers: The guitar rhythm felt smooth flowing complemented by the voice in some parts, love the guitar fingerings coupled to a fine drumming and felt t he piece was solidly put together, it is my third and last favorite.
Aria: Felt this piece was somber than the rest, the guitar arpeggio along the voice set the dark melancholic tone, the slow drumming felt like the missing piece on the musical puzzle it was, it’s another great track because of its smooth flow.
Drones: The silly scale up & down felt like a fresh move, with the steady drums and bass, it is the final track of the album, honestly while it flows it just gets old quickly with the constant keep of the same rhythm on the guitar, wouldn’t say this track is bad but I will say t is not my cup of tea. -Sophia Cynthia Cabral
