By J. Jury on October 28, 2011
Format: Audio CD
STYLE
Downtempo alternative vocal electronica.
The complex electronic soundscapes of Hold The Sun amply balance the strong vocal content here, so that, although this is an album of songs, it is equally an album of hypnotic instrumental beauty. Omri Klein's melancholy vocal style is perhaps the most immediate feature: distantly reminiscent of Coldplay yet with a more introspective edge set deep into the mix. Guitars, bass and drums bring a rock sound to many of the tracks; yet the synths and programming are more prominent and adventurous than much mainstream rock. Digital beats, bass drones and exploratory audio-crafting at times steer the music in the direction of ambient groove or chilled pop.

IN DEPTH
Opening with a pattern of sonar-like blips and guitar fingering, the title track builds gradually into a sleepy downtempo rhythm with looming bass waves and layered vocals. Subsequent pieces range from the alternative pop of Religious Standards and Solid Steel through the bluesy guts and slide guitar of Shades of Black, the bold strings and big beat of A Devil Inside to the very tranquil synthetics of Every Time I'm Stuck. Violet Vision collaborates with Cuts on The Wheels Will Turn: a floating daydream vision with effected vocals and thrumming drones set against mesmerising guitar chords. A cover of the John Lennon track Love concludes the album - emotive and wistful - lush electric guitar strums resonate upon a bed of peculiar electronica whilst sharp string stabs gradually well up leaving a disquieting, uneasy peace.

ARTWORK
The jewel case for Hold The Sun contains a three panel, fold up insert with art work in pale metallic blue. Imaginary urban elements and suited figures hint at the strongly contemporary musical content.

Format: MP3 Music
There's some really good things going on in this album. It has a great sense of space, good use of melody, an interesting mix of electronic and acoustic sounds. However, there's one major failing -- the vocalist sounds like Dave Matthews 80% of the time. That similarity just pushes the tracks towards adult contemporary and ruins the feel.
