AUTUMN TEARS - The Glow Of Desperation - Reviewed By Rock Portaal ! Check it out here at this link: https://www.rockportaal.nl/autumn-tears-the-glow-of-desparation/
After their return in 2018, Autumn Tears maintains a fairly high tempo when it comes to releasing new music. If it happens with this high quality then you don't hear anyone complaining. The Glow Of Desparation is an absolute masterpiece when it comes to neoclassical music. Lovers of heavenly voices will also lick their fingers at this. Due to the frequent use of violin and piano, the music is sometimes reminiscent of the Italian neoclassical company Ashram (listen to For You The Nameless as one of the examples... We Sing). This is not only because of the instruments, but also because of the melancholic approach. The biggest difference is the classically trained vocals on this record. In addition, there is regular singing by a woman. Autumn Tears brings several singers and singers. It helps the record in diversity without The Glow Of Desparation losing its own character. In addition, the band uses many different instruments (such as trumpet, cello, clarinet and percussion) which makes the band look mainly like its own impressive catalogue. Autumn Tears is understated, but also bombastic. The music therefore has a wide variety. Every song is fantastic in detail. The different layers in the music, the structure of the songs and the great singing together ensure that no song is bored for a second. Whether it sounds quiet or rushed with a nervous-looking piano piece The Glow Of Desperation is a work of art. Not only is the cover (again) wonderful, but so is the music. One of the absolute highlights of 2021. There's no other way. - Rock Portaal
