The band knows how to layer each sound properly, without it sounding muddy. Everything sounds clear, like it should be. There are heavy drums, with heavy guitars, with heavy vocals, but the instruments don't interfere with each other. It never clashes. There are guitar solos, but they are used sparingly, in order not to sound above the other instruments. All instruments shine through individually, evenly, cleanly.
Together they create this emotional atmosphere, aided by the orchestration. If you would like to listen to individual songs, that's not a problem, because they are terrific by themselves. More than likely, though, you'll find yourself listening to Wildhoney in its entirety, rather than skipping through tracks. These two tracks are flawless, they seem like ballads, but they differ in a lot of ways. In the latter, Johan has a sing-song voice the entire song, like reading a nursery rhyme. The last line, do you dream of me, is whispered in a bone chilling way.
Later in the song there is an out of place breakdown, then reverts back to the original format. Gaia is a much more angry and hurtful song, with Johan painfully singing along to a bridging song.
The song is mostly soloed guitar, but it never feels out of place. The album closer, A Pocket Size Sun, is such a sad song, you could almost cry to it.
It's the longest song at 8 minutes, but it feels like 5 minutes. Visionaire is a great song, another example of Johan's whispering over a riffing guitar and twilight keyboards.
The AR is a wicked song, using chanting vocals in the chorus, with Johan at his harshest vocally. A brooding song. Recommended tracks These are all standout tracks.
Wildhoney is a completely transitional album, with all of the ten tracks offering different things, all good. But there isn't a bad song to be found. Overall - A beautiful, bittersweet album, that is a landmark in metal. I can't recommend Wildhoney enough. It is a completely triumphant release from an unnoticed talented band. If I could give it to you, I would. It has something to appeal to everyone. You may not like everything it has to offer, but there is always something to like about it.
