Synopsis

Amazon.com
Reminiscent of another famous son, Jeff Buckley (offspring of Tim), Julian Coryell (progeny of renowned jazz guitarist Larry Coryell) brings a precocious musicality to the table, veering between string-laden ballads, off-kilter pop, and straight-up guitar rock with dizzying fluidity. Sometimes this kitchen-sink approach creates clutter in the context of a little three-minute ditty such as "Looking for Confessions," but elsewhere, as on the soaring "Lucky," everything falls together in a clever and deeply involving manner. The album's focus, however, is squarely on quirky yet accessible pop. Coryell's esoteric heritage ultimately seems incidental as he treats discerning pop lovers to a delicious musical cornucopia. --Matthew Cooke

"Alive and rocking with provocative, deep lyrics, musical lines that are never cliches and always addictive, this Julian Coryell CD grabs at you and doesn't let go. The outstanding songs are brilliantly performed with overwhelming wide range emotion and natural musical talent, and superbly produced."
