Top critical review
Slightly better than their first...
May 26, 2019
When I reviewed their debut album, I compared it to a swarm of frenetic wasps. This album continues with that theme, although the wasps appear in only some of the tracks. The rest, in my opinion only, sound like precludes to much bigger sound, which never materializes. There's little variation in the themes: what starts quietly proceeds and ends the same way. What starts with wasps ends with wasps. The cello is a dynamic and powerful instrument, but here it might as well have a single string...plink, plink, plink, with nary a chord to be heard. The music is timid and one-dimensional, and yet these dull interpretations are of much bigger, more vibrant compositions. Needless to say, this is my second and final purchase of this duo.
