Amber Asylum - _The Natural Philosophy of Love_
(June Records, 1997)
by: Adrian Bromley (7 out of 10)
The majority of the material found here on _TNPoL_ is a very tranquil, atmospheric setting, where leader Kris Force (guitar/violin/voice) helps guide us through the heartfelt halls of our inner self and wallow in her intense emotions. The music is beautiful, sculpted around mesmerizing usage of violins, cellos, and angelic vocals, sounds that beckon at us to come forth and experience sincere and passionate musicianship. While far from any harsh dosage of music, _TNPoL_ caters more to soundscape and soundtrack philosophy than harrowing guitar riffs and screams of anger. This music is meant to help one become at ease with him or herself. This music works for the most part, helping keep us sedated and loving every sound presented to us, but as the album continues it begins to lose a bit of its character. The end result? A record that starts off very promising, mixing beauty and passion, and ending with just drawn out numbers that provide little sparks of interest. An interesting release nonetheless.
