No other dungeon synth or related genre effects me the way Fief does. From beginning to end I am transported to an idyllic past of play and adventure. Is it my own childhood fantasies I am remembering, or some shared myth of adventure and magic? Regardless, this, and all other Fief albums, are pure Arcadian bliss.
Favorite track: Dodecahedronous Questing.
A beauty to behold. DIM's second work offers both mossy, dew-dripping quiet and tundra-like, raging potency. More extreme in its execution than Compendium I and less so than Compendium III, DIM has found a grove in the middle of both medieval landscape outskirts. Pelagic in its depth, the sounds of these rolling hillsides and water-washed rockfaces will not fade from world-beaten ears so quickly. virulentchasm
Sweet compilation of songs that as the title says "falling leaves" reminds me of when I went out while living in Europe and had the chance of walking though medieval cathedrals, remembering or creating fantasy-like stories of heroes of old. I really like the three first tracks. aliraluna
