I Don't Know Music, But I Know What I Like
A. Robinson | 07/24/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm one of those people who would select a $500 stereo over a $2000 one. So I've got a lot of nerve writing a review. Okay, so I don't know music and can't tell you about all its nuances, but I know what I like. I like something that I can sing with (not this CD), tap my foot to (often on this CD), allow my mind to wander with (definitely this CD). Unlike a lot of new age kind of stuff (wrong term, I'm sure, but I've already established that I'm not a music expert), this has catchy melodies that kind of inspire your creativity (well, at least I'm a bit creative). It's hummable stuff. You can think to it, or think about it. Not whale sounds. Or discordant (probably another wrong term) notes. The kind of music that people ask, "What's the name of this CD, this music is nice."
Michael Gettel's CDs, The Art of Nature, Places in Time, Intricate Balance, and Return would also get the same review from me. I don't feel the same about the San Juan Suites CDs, though. For a kinda creative-type like me, this music is good for evoking scenes, even emotions in my mind.

Hope this helps you non-experts like me."
A Talented Artist

"The music of Skywatching relaxing, and enjoyable to listen to. Every song is well composed and allows your imagination to wander. I highly recommend this album, as well as all of Michaels other albums. I had the oppertunity to have Michael Gettel as my music teacher, and have been following his work from the time he first released his first album. Each album he releases continues to get even better than the previous released album! Anyone who passes up the chance to own an album is missing out on music from a very talented artist!"

"Michael Gettel is my music teacher, and, wow does he write great music! Recently I went on a two week trip with him to the Southwest, and got to see some of the places that inspired him to write the music for this fabulous CD. My personal favorite is Sipapu. It captures the atmosphere of the Southwest more than any other track. Even If you don't buy this CD, go to a music store and listen to it. I know you won't be dissapointed."
