Exactly eight months after the release of his debut album "King of the Bees" comes the second album by Marco Naef, aka "The Night Is Still Young." The release of that first album after over ten years of work seems to have unleashed a surge of creativity – even if the title of the new album might suggest otherwise: "Universal Boundaries".
His concerns with the man-made constraints and routines that establish boundaries for us as individual beings have not discouraged Naef but encouraged him and propelled him to produce a successor in the same year as his debut.
Throughout this album, it is clear that Naef is not someone who takes it easy in life. For him, composing and writing songs is a kind of personal catharsis. In the forty minutes of these four songs, you pick up on how his pain is dispelled by sounds and serenely disappears into dreamy musical landscapes that stretch out for minutes on end. You sense with him how sweet certainties can be unveiled as bitter illusions: "Where did it all go wrong? I'm out, I'm gone to Babylon." With these lines, the album comes to a close. When exactly did we take that wrong turn? This unanswered question lingers after Naef has taken you along on this journey through his life and the society whose musical image he sketches. This contemporary manifesto is multilayered and critical, a musical metaphor for Hieronymus Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights. Yes, there is much to be discovered here, for those who listen closely.
