Review: Where Secrets Meet

Silent Kingom recently released their album, Where Secrets Meet back in January, 2018. Their new album is a mix of melodic acoustics and progressive rock elements. An interesting style that sadly does not get very far.

Where Secrets Meet features a lot of quality musicianship. Through out the record you’ll hear some nice subtle piano playing and a lot of interesting soft guitar solos. They almost sound like Dire Straits’ Love Over Gold period just without the quality song writing of that sweat band wearing guitar genius Mark Knopfler.

Each song has this mind numbing plodding rhythm that gets very old very fast. By the end of the third song, I was tempted to turn the record off. It has absolutely no momentum or variety what so ever. It starts on a slow song and really goes nowhere. Considering the nice little solos etc scattered through out the album, it is clearly a waste of potential as cutting the filler and replacing it with a few faster songs would have really helped this record big time.

It honestly is a shame because there are great moments scattered through out the album and the tone of the instruments sound great. In fact, the album as a whole sounds really good. It is just a shame that it is absolutely dire to listen to. I’m sure there are fans of this kind of plodding music out there and I don’t doubt that they’d enjoy it. But I’d find it hard to recommend to the average music buyer, it is too repetitive and shows no ability to write a short catchy song. Something this album sorely lacks.
