The album deals in weighty subject matter and negative emotions. These are realised through pianos and dark Electronica.
I’m not normally a massive fan of these kind of releases as they are not usually done that well and I can tire of them easily. The good thing about Nights Amore, however, is that they don’t really go in for the Drone aspect of this kind of music as much as some. Here, the songs develop and breathe rather than just repeat and turn stale.
That’s not to say, of course, that this is wildly dynamic and full of energy; by its very nature this style of music is slow, mournful, quiet and introverted.
It’s not pure misery though, as there are elements of their sound that sound almost hopeful in nature. It’s not all of the time, but it’s an aspect of their sound that prevents the album from becoming maudlin.
Musically this is good stuff, although there are too many samples for my liking; for the most part I think the music would be better off without them, but that’s just me.
This is late-night bedtime music; the kind of thing to throw on when you want to relax and soak up the melancholy.
