After about 4 years from former splendid album Outerbeats, german shoegazer Malory finally release The Third Face, whose beautiful Wake Up already appeared on a single in 2oo2. Sincerely i was expected something bigger, - i mean, 4 years are a bunch of time for recording and preparing/selecting new stuff, and after several excellent past songs, i hoped in a pure Gem as following step. And this is not. And let's forgive and forget for a while the fact They deeply follow coordinates of early Slowdive. - Actually, there are a couple of well done pearls, like Sleeper, Endora and She Has Gone, full of multi-layered guitar carpets, bliss-out calm, You know, - but these ambients sound like Outerbeats out-takes; - btw, i cannot understand easy-listening pieces like Track II, kind of electro-dub dancefloor hit, or hip-hop beats and keyboards of Ray of Hope, as well as Take Me Down - that lets me ask myself: how can You name one of Your songs like one of shoegazest Slowdive's pieces when it's also clear Your songwriting is à la Slowdive? And moreover, when the song is also somewhat mediocre? - Ok, degustibus..
