The What It Is to Be Reviews

Reviewer :  level 7   100/100
Date : 
The first note on this album you can hear that it won't be an imitation of everyone else in the genre. The note warbles into darkness and feels unsettling. This album goes on to capture many different atmospheres; foreboding, adventurous, sombre, and more. I find every track huge in its climax and sometimes spine tingling buildup.
The title sounds like a boring post rock album. The What It Is To Be is a little post, but the least boring album ever. It's atmospheric fundamentally, but gets into more symphonic territory for a few bars here and there. Super high level songwriting, produced well, and played precisely. Lo-fi and Hi-fi are used expertly for the best effect throughout. I've been listening to this regularly for months now, and it's definitely gonna rank high for 2022's top picks.
