REVIEW – Cinematic rock group Globus debuts a new album titled Cinematica. The 17 song set offers an immersive transcending listening experience.
“Sprockets” sets the tone of the album before transitioning into “Peace of Our Time.” “Peace in Our Time” showcases the lead singer’s definitive vocals starting off slower and then delving into the tense moments to close out the song. “I’m Afraid of Americans” starts off with fast paced drums offering a great take of David Bowie’s original track. “Recover” begins with a slow paced piano before exploring the velvety vocals of the female singer, Anneke Van Giersbergen. Van Giersbergen details about the process of recovery and decisions that affect the overall being.
“Seraphim” paints a picture of the protagonist facing their adversary in a compelling plot with depth and perserverence. The drums demostrate a resurgence the main character feels they must utilize to reach their goal. “You and I” brings together searing guitars and a steady drumbeat for a great rock gem. “Golden Dream” closes the album with a calming resilience.
This album is a definite go to. The tracks all tie together in nicely to form what the title conveys: a cinematic experience.
