Heavy and threatening wind which howls like metal in pain. Dark and angelic chorus fly over devastation which sticks to mind. The world of Redshift is sordid and nuances its colors and emotions from its sequences and synths. Moreover a fine sequence emerges candidly from this blackness to forged a counting rhymes à la Friday the 13th, but disguised in the morning purity of a Machiavellian way. The sequence waves of an intriguing minimalism while the echo is multiplying its tempo. A new tangent is taking shape, approaching the hypnotic nervousness in a misty dark which oscillates on a slinky mellotron. Darker than intense, Turning Toward Us progresses in a pulsating and droning universe with a marvelous Eastern paradox which is degusting thoroughly the ears. It’s a great track exploited with smoothness which astonishes by its evolution and reaches a form of serenity, always as dark, in a final as lugubrious as its intro.
Redshift opens a new way to EM with a heavy and musical EM that has a good touch of progressive. A daring turn, Turning Toward Us is the most darkest and reckless opus from Mark Shreeve’s band while having a more musical approach than Redshift earlier works. It’s resulting in a dark and progressive EM which is sounding very near to King Crimson dark area but with a higher musical level. That’s great Redshit, maybe the best to date and definitely a must have to any Redshift fans and also fans of dark and progressive music.
