An exceptional guitar album
Bill Binkelman, Wind and Wire | Minneapolis, MN United States | 11/03/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Hallowed Moon is an excellent album of acoustic guitar instrumentals, many of which are somber and pensive, but there is the occasional more uptempo number here as well. John Mills is an accomplished composer and performer with a particularly solid technique when it comes to subtle shadings and nuance. The album opens with the sound of wind in the trees, and the cover art is actually indicative of the overall tone of the CD, i.e. late autumn nights, bare trees, and a time for reflection.I can't say the album is filled with "sad" music, but it does have a melancholic feel to it at times. Of course, I enjoy that in music, so I have no problem recommending this album to people who like low key guitar music that isn't just someone noodling around. Mills is a talented artist and Hallowed Moon is a superb album for listening to during the late evening hours or on a rainy afternoon. It also makes great background music for dinner or conversing with friends in front of the fire."
Acoustic guitar - quiet and beautiful

"It took me a little while to really appreciate this recording, because it is so soft and so subtle, but once I did, I fell in love with it. Each note of the guitar conveys the sweet and simple feeling that must have inspired this music. If you would like something to bring you back home after a long, frazzling day, this CD will do it beautifully."
A sense of presence

"I have enjoyed using this CD as background music for my massage therapy. Many people have commented on how well-recorded it is. There is a presence of sound that is rare among any CD. His playing is clear and meditative. The music is soothing."
