Close draws us further into Messa's spellbinding textures and immersive dynamics. Described as "Stevie Nicks fronting Black Sabbath," singer Sara's colossal voice omnipotently carries the listener on an emotional rollercoaster ride where the sonic cauldron of Iommi guitars gives way to Arabian oudh and progressive solos in a masterful style-clash that well befits Messa's incendiary reputation. The hushed Fender Rhodes piano intro on opener "Suspended," picks up where Messa left off on their previous album Feast For Water but then collapses gloriously into Jazz guitar and widescreen impassioned crushing riffs, lighting our way for the odyssey ahead.
Perfection or something extremely close, Messa's Close is not just a Metal record, but it's definitely one of the best things to break out of the confines of Metal in a long time.
