Title: Cuando El Tiempo Sopla
Format: CD
Label: Punch Records (@)
Distributor: Masterpiece Distribution
Rated: *****
CUANDO EL TIEMPO SOPLA ("When the time blows") is the new full length by Demian's O Paradis. After the double CD "Las Nubes que Mueren" here we find fourteen tracks based on the time concept. The songs are inspired by time and by the effect of it on people's lives. Based on mid tempo ballads with electronic arrangements the tracks create a suspended effect where Demian's voice is slow and calm. During the fifty minutes of the album is like the time has stopped. Sometimes I suffered of this effect because the tracks create a similar atmosphere and it takes time to discover the different melodic layers. In fact, at the third listening, it was like I was discovering a new album. An interesting effect which you can avoid by listening few tracks at a time. On "Tiempo" you can find Punch Record's boss, Tairy, giving his help on vocals and I must admit that the first time I listened to it, I was thinking it was a sample of Papa Giovanni XXIII (best known as "Il Papa buono"/"The good Pope") because of his tone of voice.
