||the world the body the grave: Review|
It was excellent! I absolutely would not change a thing about this
song. the world the body the grave achieves a strong
atmosphere-effect, totally grabbing the listener and focusing their
attention 100% on the music. The soft drums and waves/water sound lull
one into the song at the beginning and hold your attention
throughout. Everything works/comes together cleanly. That is, I cannot
detect anything in the song that sounds out of place.
The tune expressed through the female vocals is beautiful and are complemented perfectly by the whispering masculine voice. This is one song where whispering vocals work so well. The male and female voices seem to synergise with the music to create a sort of haunting effect. I am not being syncophantic here, belive me, I really do love this song.
The richness of sound and originality of the song make it one of the best I have heard. Indeed, I consider it a plus that the world the body the grave does not remind me of another artist's work. This is a strong symbol of orginality.
Overall, I consider this to be an excellent single. I found myself listening to it repeatedly and that is surely the bottom line. If you like something, you listen to it a lot.
