Cradled In Love - Poets Of The Fall

Song: Cradled In Love
Artist: Poets of the Fall
Album: Temple of Thought

Marko Saaresto has amazing vocals, ludicurously smooth, melding beautifully with the clean, rustically modern instrumentals, vibing a lullaby and a 90's love song. 'Tis oddly consuming, Cradled in Love, gently rocking one into a monumental journey, shrouded with the gentlest kiss of mystery.

Poets of the Fall mesmerises the audience with their dramatic notes, theatrically gorgeous with touches of rock. Paced well, 'tis unfolded with the breath of torrential winds and the sound of heels echoing on the floor,  doors creaking before a burst of warmth spills through from the soft-rock strums, steady and clean along with Saaresto's beautiful voice.

"So don't cry for your love, cry tears of joy. Cos you're alive, cradled in love."

His falsetto, breathing each word sends chills through, intertwining with his more deeper edged tone... 'tis a medley of variety for the ears. The eyelids yearn to close at instances, gently swaying with invisible winds, steady beats of percussion embracing the being, sending one's heart in pirouettes all the same.

Lyrically, Cradled in Love is simpler than its predecessors, speaking of a blue-eyed beauty, painting a love story. 'Tis kept figurative yet simple, relatable to most whilst holding intimacy, Poets of the Fall truly are deserving of the title 'Poet', one whom enthralls and entertains with words.

Highly underrated, extremely good.

Here - Kari Jobe

Song: Here
Artist: Kari Jobe
Album: Where I Find You

Simplicity and sophistication lounge in wedded bliss in the midst of the chords and strains, a subtle hint of a lullaby flowing along the soothing vocals, a hideaway of a song, Here is.

Heavy, clean touches of piano sets a slow, languid mood, enhanced by a thousandfold from the ethereal quality in Jobe's voice, exhaling each word with tenderness, each swivel and fall in the note exhibiting an endearing quality, unlike anything else I've listened to.

The strings tiptoe along the song, accompanying the strengthening vocals, camouflaging into the background, occasionally giving a hint or two of its presence. I adore the way Jobe controls her vocals to deliver emotions with exquisite precision, sincerity intact.

Heavy Christian influence's in the lyrics, but the overall effect's rather subtle, giving off the vibe of an acoustic-ballad or pop with a Zen-esque quality, rather than something distastefully coercing or forceful.

"Breathe in.."

And enjoy.
