CD Reviews

The casual listener's perspective

"This music is very dense. Some coworkers put this on in a record store during the last week we were open; people fled the store complaining about the racket!
I am not a fan of jazz; I do not understand this music. But while listening to it, one begins to feel a huge picture taking shape. I would recommend this as a challenge to the ears, but not for any musical quality.
I commented to the guy who put this on; "I don't think I understand what is happening in this music."
He replied,"The musicians aren't sure what's happening. That's part of the point."
3 stars because the music is awesome; but i still don't get it...."
Sorry but they don't know what they are missing

"Some reviewer said that people fled the store where they played this great record while complaining about the racket...of course they did. This is not music to play while you are shopping (even if it's shopping at a record store). This is music to be appreciated in an ambience of tranquility and peace so you can really focus and inmerse your self deep within it's complex harmonic and melodic twists and turns. Excellent and highly recommended to those who stayed in the store."

"It fits, too. Unease. Dissonance. Not very light. Dangerous. Occasionally grating. Hints of beauty that you have to work for. Pay attention to what's going on; see the grandeur and the gorgeousness under the surface. Ultimately, it's all worth it. It's a commentary ahead of its time. Reason enough to listen. Please do."
