This is an album that makes you appreciate music as a whole! No matter the genre, music can bring such joy to anyone’s life and have their emotions rejoiced. This album featured some of the most beautiful, peaceful sounds you’ll ever hear in your life. Today’s album review will be on The Cinematic Orchestra’s “To Believe”.
For those who have never heard of this band, The Cinematic Orchestra is a jazz and electronic music group. Combining jazz and electronic music together sounds very interesting and this band did it perfectly. They’ve been around for over 20 years and to this day they can still deliver great music. I first heard one of their songs on the video game Sleeping Dogs and once I searched their music more, I was instantly hooked. They have such a very unique sound. A sound that can capture a person’s heart. A sound that can relax a person’s mind and body. This band is very talented and this album continues to prove that they haven’t lost a beat.
The band started production on this album a couple years ago actually and was finally finished and released on March 15th. It features 7 tracks and each of them are masterpieces. I might be making this album sound like it’s the greatest ever made, but I can’t help it since it’s a great album.
Before listening to The Cinematic Orchestra, I didn’t listen to jazz music that much even though I do enjoy it. The fact they mixed jazz and electronic music together and made it sound so different is astonishing. This album in my opinion didn’t have much of that jazz sound, but it’s still great. Each track has different kinds of emotions. Some have peaceful vibes, some have grieving vibes, and lastly happy vibes.
I love every single track but the two that stands out to me the most are The Workers of Art and A Promise. These two songs in particular really speaks to me. They both have powerful messages. Even by the titles themselves can tell you what you’re about to be in store for. These guys know how to incorporate messages into their music by their sounds.
I’m gonna rate this album 10/10 as it truly defines what true music sounds like. Music that speaks to you while you sit back and relax to it. Seriously, if you haven’t heard of this band, please go check them out and you’ll definitely won’t be disappointed. Also check out this album too as it’s so far one of the best albums of the year.
