青春从未抚摩过伤害的伤痛——A.N.Whitehead (1861 - 1947)
Michael J. Salo on 27 July 2005——我因为几点热爱着Desiderii Marginis的音乐他们为专辑内容，默默准备着。音乐天使似乎陪伴着他们每张专辑，都是那么独特，像名字那样“ever green”。Desiderii嗓音更吸引人的地方，诡秘的旋律和氛围的平衡，更让我想起了Tor Lundvall这位艺术家。

There are a couple qualities I like about Desiderii Marginis, aside from the great music.
One is that they don't release too much stuff, as many fellow artists in their particular genre tend to do. Instead they hold back a bit and make sure that each release is something special.
Second is they take a little different musical angle each time, so every album is a new & fresh experience. Whereas the last few Raison d'etre albums have started to get a bit similar, every Desiderii Marginis release is distinct ("ever green" you might say).
Mainly of course, it's the excellently crafted music that allows this act to continue to stand out.
What exactly makes Desiderii's soundscapes more interesting than so many other dark ambient acts? One virtue that stands out for me is the subtle melodic side. In fact the tasteful balance of melody & atmosphere to be found here reminds me of the work of my own favorite ambient artist Tor Lundvall.
For my taste, the first two Desiderii albums are four star releases. The third one Strife went for a concept that didn't appeal quite as much, but this gorgeous new LP is a definite keeper, full of all kinds of hints for further promise...
