The title track opens with a distant wind to sinister curves. Small bells and bigger ones resound behind this mystic foggy where the breath of inquisition intrigues follows the hilly architectures of the holy walls. A dramatic intro where the intensity increases gradually with its synths to wrapping mellotron strata and hedging of soft melodies, beneath striking of percussions deserving of encouragements for rowers of old Spanish galleons. A haughtiness Gregorian intro where symphonic and angelic synths shine under stunning and mesmerizing strikes of percussions. At around the 6th minute point, we float in a sound abyssal which quietly redefines the rhythmic structure where the musical world of Arc appears as if by magic; low stealthily hesitating sequences, mellotron synth to fluty oniric breaths and crystalline chords which mold a brief fanciful dance. A set-up for a surge of sequences where heavy chords shape a loud cadence accompanied with a synth filled of blows overflowing synergy split between the melody and the fascination. Little by little, these sonorities clear up to make us dive into the glaucous universe of Arc where tempos prevaricate between the constancy and its ambient corridors, in a tumult of heterogeneous tones which form hybrid and secondary rhythms in the main conceptual schema. A long title which entrains us, as roller coaster of which the end is unknown us. This is some great inspiring Arc there swimming in his full musical delirious state, as the spirit we find on the delicious Fracture. Delicate felted percussions on a keyboard with notes which flutter on crystal wings, Bliss Plane progresses on a sequencer to soft minimalism pulsations and others pulses more biting, aggressive but aleatories. Flirting between a boundless rhythm and another more steady, Bliss Plane portrays the repertory of the rhythmic duality proper to Arc with these sequences that increase and ease, slipping through among a subjecting synth, of which nasal strata are unique to Arc.
