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.
