Lovely, light ivy...,
This review is from: You Are All I See (MP3 Music)
YOU ARE ALL I SEE is whispery goodness the whole way through and while M83 fans may particularly be interested, anyone who loves beautiful, ethereal music will find themselves falling in love with this. It is such a lovely album that sometimes there's almost too much loveliness to handle.
Even though I mention M83, there is really no one else's voice I can compare to what gently radiates off of Active Child's album. You could spend your whole time listening to YOU ARE ALL I SEE with your eyes closed and find yourself transported to another world where stress and worry just seep out of your soul.
"Hanging On" is haunting and swirls around your insides while "See Thru Eyes" is vulnerable and loving and very very dreamy with an A-ha 80s sweep to it. "Ivy" would be an awesome song to feature during a magical movie scene where two people first realize how strongly they feel about each other. It will raise the goosebumps on your arms when you hear it each and every time. "Ancient Eye" and "Johnny Belinda" are mystical revelations that may have you checking your feet to see if they are still on the floor.
Every song on here has its own power, but the ones I like most, the ones that really got to me are the ones I mentioned and they are the kinds of things you don't easily forget. YOU ARE ALL I SEE is hard to pin down to one style or sound, but it is as gorgeous as a butterfly or a deer that starts too easily if you approach it too fast. Take your time getting to know this wondrous album.
