The first track on this CD is a wonderful cover of Craven Melon's Silk Sunflowers, backed by members of Craven Melon on Guitar and Backing Vocals... .... Alysson is a gifted pianist and the tunes are piano driven creating an atmosphere both ethereal and beautiful. "Into Winter" is a lovely song where Alysson really shows off her skills on the piano. Light is joined by a host of musicians on the disc including guitars, bass, cello, and violin. "Maybe" is still my favorite Alysson Light song and can not help but move the listener. Alysson sings the chorus in a perfect falsetto. This song alone is enough to raise her to superstar status. On all songs, her lyrics are heartfelt and thought provoking beyond those you would expect from someone just on the threshold of adulthood. I can only imagine what a bit more real world experience is going to do for Alysson's songwriting skills. The use of two vocalists on the chorus of "Hurricane" creates an impressive backdrop to Alysson's verses. Alysson shows her vocal range singing in a full soprano for "Silken Wind." The production, engineering, and mastering are highly professional on the CD. If you are a fan of piano driven music with a classical influence, strong vocals, and well written and thought out songs, then I highly recommend this CD. I am afforded the opportunity to listen to quite a bit of music through the site and this CD comes with my highest recommendation!
