Ernest Gonzales (Mexicans With Guns) follows up the introspective Been Meaning To Tell You with an equally thoughtful and remarkable album. With careful attention to composition and arrangements, tracks such as “When Synchronicity Prevails”, “The Scattered Thoughts of Raindrops” and “The Heroic Lives of Particles” quickly become memorable, necessary additions to one’s musical psyche. Elsewhere, “The Voice of Fate”, “In The End” and the Dntel remix of “When Synchronicity Prevails” add further dimension and offer further proof of Gonzales’s unique and frequently understated vision. A truly moving meditation on nature and man’s place within it, Natural Traits surprises again and again.
