Crushing in its quiet intensity, RAAJMAHAL's Celandine starts with "Bridge Of Temptation," a haunting eight minute journey into the depths of transformation. The mood continues through the nearly three quarter hour release, subtlety masking emotion and vocals floating casually in and out of consciousness. It's a wonder that sounds so peaceful can create such anxiety, almost as if you are waiting for Celasndine to descend into despair...but it never does. Mournful and longing but at least resigned, even if not yet content.
