Green Carnation “Light of Day, Day of Darkness” (2001)

Never before a sixty minute long song seemed so short. Only when light embraces dark silently in this album, it’s possible to see the unseen and to hear the unheard. Perfect for moments in which you don’t know if you prefer to be in twilight or rather under the lights. An album full of secrets that slowly reveal themselves into a wide array of timbres, from saxophone to sitar, including a chorus and some mesmerizing sounds. An album which ambience welcomes to be listened to in intimacy (even privacy), but the best about the album is, maybe, sharing it, at least in my own experience. Thus, here I recommend not a doom/rock album that is too complicated, nor a progressive metal album that is mostly slow and without unnecessary egomaniac virtuosism, but an album that trascends the boundaries of genre apparently without getting too complicated, an album which charm is not the greatest technical display but the emotional display; an album that is easy to listen but has the possibility of a more profound listen, an album to share and fall in love with and by it.

This album is full of love!
