River flows purposefully into this narrow, hairline-crack fugue between subconscious and consciousness, bursting our carefully built inner system of ordering with the unruly power of the water. Perhaps River's hypnotic power derives from the fact …that they skip linear time perception with a graceful leap, similar to that of a pole vaulter, but they do not alight on solid ground, more rather simply deny to land and drift off into the timeless. …that everything is narrow and wide and inside and outside and open and closed and light and dark at the same time. …that the lyrics are boiled down to an enigmatic reduction and withdraw immediately, as soon as you attempt to catch and interpret them. …that head and stomach are equal and form a symbiosis.
