MILOŠ is back with his fifth studio album, and his first recording since 2016, poignantly entitled ‘Sound of Silence’, set for release on 13th September on Decca Classics. The album features both classical guitar repertoire and Milos’ interpretation of The Sound of Silence, Portisheads’ Sour Times, Skylar Grey’s Moving Mountains, Radiohead’s Street Spirit and Leonard Cohen’s Pale Blue Raincoat.

What I found fascinating in the album was the beauty of the melodies and the quality of the sound which was at the same time rich and sparse and always evocative while the blending of pop and classical music was seamless. There was hype in the liner note on the magic of silence. What was true was a breathing space of silence between sounds which veritably enhanced the beauty of the sound.
In an uninterrupted string of gems, selecting favorites is obviously subjective. My personal preferences which I cite, follow the sequence they appear in the compilation: Famous Blue Raincoat by Leonard Cohen, a piece with guitar accompanied by soprano saxophone; Solitude by Jorge Calandrelli, Cancion de Cuna (Berceuse) by Leo Brouwer and Over the Rainbow by Harold Arlen, all three for unaccompanied guitar.
He mentioned in passing that whilst he was recovering from his injury, he had pulled together the concept for his latest album, but didn't really say much more. I was intrigued so decided to buy this rather than one of the older ones.
This album is full of tracks that are floating and atmospheric. His guitar gets lost in a couple of tracks, but that's no bad thing when the accompanying arrangement is so well put together.
The weakest track is the somewhat predictable Knights in White Satin, but this album has left me wanting more.
He plays such a variety of music. The Sound of Silence was originally a Simon and Garfunkel track which goes back many years and is still perfect. Milos also plays Somewhere Over the Rainbow which is a favourite of mine.
I would recommend this CD. It is very restful and contemplative.
