|I've been a Landing fan for quite a while now. Ever
since I heard their wonderful "Oceanless" album, I knew they were not to be
ignored. In the same company as Yume Bitsu and Surface of Eceon,
Landing has produced some of the most beautiful shoegazer songs I've ever heard.
album is no different. The feedback-drenched guitar playing and dreamy vocals take the
listener out of this world. In fact, if you listen to it in the dark, you'll almost feel
like you're floating in space.
The first track here, "Fall Song," is one of the more upbeat pieces. Its
melodies are blanketed with a layer of light drums and soft guitar fuzz. This is the type
of song you can cry or smile to, depending on your mood. Meanwhile, "Ruins of the
Morning" is a weeper. The droning, chiming guitars will grasp your heart and squeeze
it, and the emotionally intense vocals will surely drip a few tears from your eyes.
All in all, the eight tracks on this album will wrap you up and float you away into
space. But be sure to bring some tissue for your journey - you may not be able to breathe
in space, but you certainly can feel.
