Port-Royal - Afraid To Dance

In wrong hands, the whole ambient music concept can bore the hell out of us. Not everyone has the ability to create sounds that keep us focused when, in fact, and at first glance, not much is happening besides repetition. With "Afraid To Dance" (the title actually says a lot...), italian project Port-Royal have built a restrained world half based on classic mid-tempo electronic beats, while the other half uses layers of abstract structures and involving drones, with songs that slowly and subtly mutate and evolve in circles, suggesting an hypnotic trance theme. The final result is full of vast landscapes and a mysterious melancholy, where the whole concept of extreme beauty once again finds a new soundtrack to explain its attributes. (7,5/10)
