Helios is the fourth studio album by American alternative rock band the Fray. It was released on February 25, 2014 by Epic Records. The Fray's third album, Scars and Stories, was released in February 2012. In an October 2012 interview with Rolling Stone magazine, frontman Isaac Slade said that the band would be starting work on their fourth album in 2013, aiming to release it around Christmas 2013. On June 4, 2013, the band announced that they had begun recording their fourth album.

Listening to this while waking in the rain was quite pleasant, and the cover art is wholesome and fits the tone of the album well. Really relaxing ambient music.

Since Helios' Eingya is the third full-length by Boston-based composer Keith Kenniff, and the second from the same alias (Corduroy Road was released under the name Goldmund), you can't accuse him of not being serious about his work. Nor can you call him a dilettante or moonlighter: He's a Berklee College of Music grad who's served time since childhood in music lessons administered by a musically-inclined father (instead of playing outside or whatever), and his accomplishment and expertise on various instruments is gratifyingly apparent on all three of his releases. This was the lone spot on the album that didn't try to move me along to the next, which I appreciated.

Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience, is not a quote you will find in this album because it is instrumental, however it invokes the same feeling of peace as you willingly drown in its breathtaking essence. Listed as organic electronic/ambience, these are terms unfamiliar to me, but I am certainly allowing the music to prove itself as such.

Even those who have heard his first Helios full-length (Unomia) will be getting something slightly different, since Eingya moves deeper into post-rock territory. This album is about moods - digitally constructed moods, yes, but these constructions are powered by typical moody post-rock fuel: delicate piano, soft-spoken guitar, and laid-back drums. That's what the opener, "Bless This Morning Year," is all about and it sets the tone right from the start. Dragonfly Across an Ancient Sky" is another very strong track in that vein.

The music is just so purely beautiful and life-affirming. Acoustics, electronics, and ambience combine for melancholic bliss.
Bless this morning year is the saddest thing I've ever heard.
Keith Kenniff has managed to create a simple and touching album with every second having its own life. The cover exactly reflects the overall album's mood - serene and romantic. Gentle live instruments are combined with soft crunchy beats and lush synths to produce a deep memorable effect. For example, the way a lonesome sound in the beginning of track 2 streams through piano chords still makes me want to cry, though I'm not a too emotional person. The melodies are harmonically shaped and hardly seem to go anywhere, but you can't get rid of that feeling of sweet melancholy they bring. This CD would make a perfect gift for your beloved one or serve as a soundtrack to intimate pastime without putting you into trance-like condition. And you don't need to be an "electronic head" to feel how powerful Eingya is.
I recently discovered the sonic paradise of Helios through this release. Some music is meant as a form of therapy, the salve for your soul that hits you in just the right way to transport your emotions into their own zone. It's been quite a while since anything has touched me musically so deeply and so immediately. Eingya is by far my favorite ambient release of the year. A must-have.
Before writing this review, I was thorn. I couldn't decide if I felt that enygia was either elevator music or one of the most interesting ambient record of all time. After the third time I heard it, I've decided not to care. Because if you stop thinking and start to feel, you're hearing the sound of times you were happy and how far they are now from you and how far these moments of happinnes will be. If Fernando Pessoa would have made a record, this is how it would sound like. Enygia is a heck of a record, everybody has to buy that record.
this used to be a review, didnt like it anymore, still love the album. its all good.
"Eingya" is quite a bit evolved compared to Helios' previous album, "Unomia". Most evident is the fact that these are actual individual tracks, and don't all blend into eachother like last time (don't get me wrong though, I loved the first album and it's style). The elements are all here... piano, acoustic guitar and a side of electronica. The greatness of this album doesn't fully hit you until track 6 where some vocals kick in. Very memorable and so different sounding then anyone else in the genre. There is no doubt that Keith is an expert at what he does and its pretty obvious that he takes his time and thinks out every little aspect of his tracks. I do dare say that this album tops his debut. IDM/downtempo/ambient fans will want to get a hold of this one ASAP.
Another beautiful album from Helios, very delicate sounds merge together to create a beautifully atmospheric album, an excellent use of a variety of instruments. There is a good reason why this has been given 5/5 by so many, even if you haven’t heard this LP, or anything by Helios, I implore you to buy it if you enjoy Kettle, Boards of Canada, or Ulrich Schnauss. I don’t do many reviews anymore but I was compelled to review this masterpiece. Highly recommended.
