If you enjoy classic rock, you already appreciate the finer songs from the Stones, Beatles, Skynyrd, Doors, Fleetwood Mac, Floyd, Elton, Doobies, CCR, Guess Who, Moody Blues, and the Who, among others - so why consider an album in the bizarre realm of Enya and Yanni?Well, I'll tell you ... In this album, Leroy Quintana and Paul Speer have laid down atmospheric tracks (much deeper than Musac or elevator music). These tunes are so subtle, so polished, so enjoyable, that it will blow your mind. The compositions are simply superb and the recording itself is as clean as anything you're likely to find. Alan Parsons, George Martin, and Phil Spector have nothing on those that produced "SHADES of SHADOW."So, get this CD (even if you can't find it new), lower the lights, lie back in your most comfortable chair with you best headset, and enjoy the ride. You'll be glad you did.
Musical, Nuanced Classic (with a groove)

"Pure instrumental heaven. Good recording. Synths dominate, with guitar, bass, sax, and percussion. A typical track has the synths speading beautifully over the musical space, an interesting, dynamic bass line moving throughout, tasteful percussive highlights, and Spanish guitar on the melody line, all combining for an airy, ambient, peaceful feel. I enjoy everything from jazz to heavy metal, and this is one of my ten favorite albums of all time. It's one of the few albums I enjoy listening to anytime in any setting. Crafted carefully and performed artfully: a truly *musical* work. It's a classic."
