I love the album, its absolutely beautiful, they melted their sound together perfectly, they really compliment each other. Secede holds Kettle's mindfu... bending, melodies back which serves the album in my opinion. (don't get me wrong i love to be mind-bent by Kettel, but this makes the album much more of a subtle experience that is still overwhelming.) As for the 'childishness' accusations: I think the opposite. Daring to be joyful in this pessimistic times we're living in is actually proving maturity, and makes this album a blessing. Peace! :)
I imagine everyone was expecting something like 'Leraine', but it was probably wrong to. I wonder how much input Kettel actually made towards that track beyond providing the wonderful melody originally used in his track 'Sunaboveyou' (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1xmjQaI6OA). Anyway, I think Leraine was a one off. I didn't expect them to replicate the magic of that track for a full album. I respect that they've tried to advance their sound by putting out something original instead which still clearly sounds like them. They've convincingly merged their sound so well I've found it hard to guess which of the two could have provided the creative touches between the elements of each track. I really like the album. It's got the journey-like soundscapes of Secede combined with the melodic tones of Kettel. It's creative, and in terms of production it sounds great.
I was expecting more of their original sound.. it sounds like a soundtrack for a Hayo Miyazaki cartoon. It's beautiful but the direction they went is different.. I agree with Epsilonphase in a way of childishness. Was expecting a bit more deeper sound.
Everyone saying When Can can't top Tryshasla has to realize that pretty much all of us have had years to love Tryshasla and grow with it, each listen probably making it more special. With how amazing When Can is, I'm sure it'll be the same way. Both albums are fantastic.
