would kill his birds then he would draw them - capturing their beauty
in death. Kryptasthesie has accomplished the same thing. "No Age" is
the last dying breath of one of Italy's greatest psychedelic bands.
Over all they have done over the years, THIS is the idealized statement
by this band. A large part of the success is singing in their native
Italian, which is truer to the band than earlier records that employed
English. I believe that language just is not a way of communicating
ideas but it also shapes your thinking. Thus, when the band previously
used English, it seemed forced whereas now the vocals are working with
the music (not against it). The band seems to want to put everything
into this record. They get atmospheric with "ALH84001" and rock like a
modern Pink Floyd (meddle era) in "Il Tao Della Violenza" and get
techno with "Tutto Passa". It seems that when you get this good you've
got nowhere to go but down like a brilliant asteroid on its way to its
eventual breakup. Lets hope that the remnants that have shattered on
impact are as brilliant as their source.
