Folk Rock, the label says. Well, then I compare with known facts about the genre: Catchy melodies? Yes. Lilting singer? Also there. Romantic violins? In great number. So this must mean we could throw it away while it suffocates in its own clichés like DEAD CAN DANCE does? In this mostly orotund genre there are just a few outstanding bands. REINCARNATUS is surely one of them. And I must confess that what the girls did here it is quite remarkable!
They come up with very empathetic songs full of emotions. Acoustic parts of guitar and keyboard and beautiful lyrics meet great pop-music, an inspiring voice, catchy parts and simply a warm atmosphere. The lyrics and the voice really sound like they came from deep heart. So they have the choice to create a joyful atmosphere. the listener is not confronted with lilting melodies. He is rather urged to deal with the music – so please do not be curious of an easy- listening album.
All in all: With “Media Vita” the girls created some kind of “cultural assets” in music.
