"The Baltic Sea" is the follow album of jakeL 2011 EP "Shelter" and this time with a proper full length of about forty minutes in total duration. Forty minutes of progressive-met' and instrumental noise the outcome is even bigger and better than "Shelter" EP. It feels like jakeL is at a creative peak right now, and this album reflects just that. The intertwining melodic structures is dark, profoundly beautiful and intensely powerful. It's definitely something you want to listen at a loud volume. "The Baltic Sea" will without a doubt please fans who crave for long progressive pieces as jakeL brand of alternative / progressive, melodic rock has matured over the year and portrait an integral energy. In many way, "The Baltic Sea" is the sound of a one man band composing music as a hobby along an artistic path with a truly stunning musical vision. On a good progressive, post-progressive note check it out guys.
By the looks and hear of "The Black Sea" it seems that [ jaKel ] has replaced the progressive edge with an ambient touch which instantly makes "The Black Sea" 10 times bigger and better than "The Baltic Sea". That doesn't goes to say that "The Baltic Sea" is not good though. In contrary it's a superb album but but the attribution of ambient ambiance does take over the vibe of progressive elements.
