The Way of Silence
seem contradictory as a title by a band called Illinoise,
but here it’s
apropos. The album’s “music” glides along
in almost subliminal fashion. It’s the perfect album
to listen to at 4 am, gazing at stars or city lights, coming
down from whatever one needs to come down from.
The tracks, at times, have a new-age soundscape quality
about them. And taken as a whole also suggest thematic
tones, like those customary to film soundtracks. Those
interested in alternative and experimental music that tinkers
with their serotonin levels are apt to enjoy Illinoise.
