In almost 19 years, Duster's first album beautifully recreates the hopelessness as well as an embracing and depressing emptiness that consumes you slowly until the end of your life.

For some people, this record might not be necessarily a memorable listen or a standout piece for the music scene and this feeling is widely accepted since this album was solely created with the purpose of being lifeless.

Rafael Lechowski presenta un nuevo proyecto reflexionando sobre su entorno y lo que lleva experimentando durante estos últimos años por medio de El canto de Amor a la Vida, un álbum introspectivo cuyo propósito e intencionalidad terminan opacando la música y la experiencia en sí de este.

Primeramente, el Canto de Amor a la Vida no es solo monótono sino también tedioso mientras más piensas respecto a este. Probablemente, no se ... read more

It's such a shame that if you remove the unnecessary background music tracks and just leave the singles, this could have been a pretty decent record, probably their best one for sure.

I like this.

I've seen a big (enough to make me write this) amount of people unnecessarily bringing Anthony Fantano's opinion or score to album discussions as if his word were sacred or worthy of ultimate devotion. Fact that it's been prejudicial for a lot of people's enjoyment.

It seems like everyone is so focused on the average rating instead of actually talking about the project. I'm not saying this hasn't happened before, because it has happened, but seeing the "this better stays at ... read more

I feel so mixed about this album, today it is a 65 to me, but tomorrow it could be lower or higher. These new shoegaze projects I've been aiming to listen to are mostly a mixed bag of good ideas questionably executed. Portraying the main ideas of the genre but leaving a lot to be desired. This easily could have been a great record.

For some reason, I decided to listen to 90 albums of this year before the end of the decade. Yeah, I'm mad as hell... By the way, those albums are in my library, some of them I've already listened to during this week (or I'm currently listening to them).
