Oktaf Kanis: Another Vision Review

10. Never Leave You Again

Favourite lyric: I’m with you, beside you, I need you, yeah it’s true

A non-single I was really excited to hear, and was not disappointed by. Very melodic, both the tune and the vocals. A bit more mellow, and maybe this is why I didn’t see as the strongest song, but it still matched Kanis’ style.

9. Another Vision

Favourite lyric: We can do it together, it’s another vision

The title track delivered its role perfectly. Captured the album’s sound as a whole, and also as the first track established the atmosphere exceptionally.

8. My Radio

Favourite lyric: You can be strong, for the first time, just paint your soul

A single I not long ago reviewed. Great raspy tones and the occasional high note too. Here we get to see another side to Kanis’ vocals, as well as a poetic sense to the lyrics which I found really interesting.

7. Coming From The Darkside

Favourite lyric: I’ve got mine for my life, you’ve got a diamond in your blood

Great opening instrumental, which sets the tone for the whole song and makes a reappearance. Very melodic verses that I think I enjoyed more than the chorus, which made this a very difficult song to place.

6. Wheel

Favourite lyric: I don’t wanna be a part of you and bow down again

Another great single, full of greatly played and well structured guitar sequences. Gets better with every listen, and as the song goes on. The strategic changes in tempo make the song all the more fascinating.

5. Starlight

Favourite lyric: I will take you into starlight, should I take you into a nightlife?

This is the first song I ever reviewed by Oktaf Kanis, so obviously I’m going to have a soft spot for it, and I’m not surprised it made it to the higher section of my list. One of the strongest tunes on the album, just not my absolute favourite.

4. Come On

Favourite lyric: I’ve been around your soul, and don’t be confused, I feel alive right now

The epitome of Kanis’ style, his music at it’s best. Such power exuded not only vocally but also instrumentally. Here he really showcases what he can do with his music, creating a great tune in the process.

3. Angela

Favourite lyric: I feel you Angela, but you’re not here, stuck in a nature, and I feel your hair

Very tuneful song that really grew on me, leaving me with no choice but to put it in the top three. Has a mellow yet rock yet indie feel to it all at the same time. Contains one of the best choruses no doubt.

2. Take It Or Leave It

Favourite lyric: I don’t hold anything, but I trust in your eyes, there’s still one more night

At first I wasn’t sure where the song was going, but soon it really blossomed into a truly catchy tune. One of the strongest songs lyrically but is also in general an extremely fun song melodically and instrumentally.

1. Waiting For The Sun

Favourite lyric: The colour of the skyline, spinnin’ to the road, the rhythm of the night sky, everybody need to grow

I can’t quite put my finger on it, but there is something about this song that differentiates it from the others on the album. Less instrumental makes way for powerful vocals and a wide vocal range, backed by an irresistible melody that nicely flows throughout the song.
