Contemplative Lyrics and Addictive Grooves

""Fields of fire that passed the train
The sky is victorious but here comes the rain
Friday is taking me home again,
And I've nothing but you on my mind."
~Crazy English Summer
If you want to escape into mind numbing beats, Not Enuff Love may not be the track to listen to as it will often draw you deep into thought. There is however a sinking into musical pleasure as the contemplative lyrics roll along in addictive grooves.
"Crazy English Summer" stands out as a stunningly beautiful piece of musical perfection. The first time I heard this song I stopped in my tracks and replayed the song for what seemed like hours. The depth of emotion is quite profound and notes seem to float in a musical ether, echoing across night skies. "Evergreen" also has a similar ecstasy and gives me shivers. I find myself turning up the volume and feeling a little breathless.
The various styles on this album range so dramatically that you never remain in one mood for long. Except listening to this album tends to make me feel happy, young, energetic and free.
"The Birds are calling to me and
All the leaves I came to love are falling
Ribbons on evergreen, owls that pull them apart
I can hear you singing my funny valentine
Oh you know that breaks my heart
Hold the choirs of winter,
The Birds are calling to me and
All the leaves I came to love"
