Muddog’s Journal – “Winds Of The Sun” Review

by | Nov 10, 2010 | Dol Ammad

Well, this was unexpected! After visiting the Dol AmmadDol Theeta homepage for a while and seeing the forum full of spam and no updates I was beginning to lose hope. Thankfully my despair turned to joy and surprise.

Thanasis Lightbridge has been busy whipping up some Dol Ammad material. This digital EP gives us a small sample of what’s to come. Let’s take a look at what we have on this 26 minute EP.

There are three original songs, a cover and a choir version of a song fromOcean Dynamics

Let’s talk about the cover and choir versions first since there isn’t much to say about them. The cover song is Black Winter Day by Amorphis. I’m not a big fan of Amorphis to begin with, so this cover really doesn’t do much for me. The other song is a DC Cooper-less version of Aquatic Majesty from the album Ocean Dynamics.

Now let’s talk about the other three…DC Cooper makes another guest appearance in the wonderfully soothing and relaxing opener, Winds of the Sun. It’s a fairly simple song by Dol Ammad standards since it isn’t loaded with synths or choirs like some other songs on previous albums, but it gets the job done nicely.

The closer is Birth of a Dream, which is supposed to be a song evolved from the opener on Star Tales (to paraphrase the Winds of the Sun info page). It’s all synths and it really brings back some memories from Star Tales. An excellent fusion of the style from Star Tales with the style from Ocean Dynamics.

The middle track deserves special mention simply because I’m completely and utterly baffled by its placement on this EP. The song is called Theeta Dominion. According to the info page, this song is supposed to be “Dol Theeta’s special take on a “Thalassa Dominion” Medley.”

The song itself is excellent. It’s oozing with Dol Theeta’s style and minimalism (compared to Dol Ammad). It has everything an excellent Dol Theeta song should have.

And this is why I’m a bit confused. This is supposed to be a Dol Theeta song, but it’s on a Dol Ammad EP. In my opinion, this should have been placed on the next Dol Theeta EP (if there will be one) as an EP exclusive track.

All in all though, I really can’t complain about having a great song like Theeta Dominion on an EP. I wish there was a tad more original material on this one though. Either way, it’s good to know that Dol Ammad and Dol Theeta are still alive and kicking. I have a good feeling about the full length album once it comes out. Definitely hold your breath for it because I think it’s gonna be worth it!

(Man it has been a reeeeaaalllly long time since my last entry!)
