Synopsis

Album Description
Written and arranged by Lipke, The Way Home... tastefully balances the love and pain inherent in all human relationships delving into intimate acoustic ballads, all out rockers and sweeping string arrangements. The album's first track and forthcoming single "Untitled Song #1," features an intense basic primal voice throughout the wordless chorus that builds to a heightened crescendo. "Check Your Mirror" is a melodic counterpart displaying irresistible melodies mixed with jangle guitar sweetness and understated strings that draw the listener further into his world. Lipke examines failed romance in the inspired rock anthem "The Fire" while an acoustic ballad "My One and Only," emotes a definitive connection to his lyrics. Lipke says, "My songs are essentially a reaction to what's going on around and inside me." He sings about undying commitment in the darkly playful "Stick by You" and the string arrangements swell to a fevered pitch on the epic seven minute opus, "Standing Over You". The Way Home's... closing track "It's Gone Out" draws from Lipke's classical piano influence, completing the whole of all parts examined throughout the record.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I think this album is fantastic. Standing Over you was the first song that made me buy the album. It starts out quiet and emotional then moves on into a great crescendo of music fused with the cello and guitars. Great String playing. Check Your Mirror is a perky sounding song that is sure to get you singing along in no time. Love the backing vocals on this track. Untitled Song #1, is Rocking!! The ending musically and vocally is fantastic and gets your heart thumping. The video that is out for this song is cool, too. What a great looking band! My other favorites are The Fire and It's Gone Out. I highly recommend this album and can't wait for the next one!"
