CD Reviews

Concept album? Yes, and it's great.
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Remember those golden days of the concept album? Seems everybody in the 70's was doing one...and mostly doing it badly, reaching usually much further than their talent could take them. Not so with Peter Himmelman. Here, with 'Skin,' he has taken the life of a man (is it the callous, rich and shallow driver of the doomed sports car...or the passenger he is bragging to?) from minutes before his death and on through a sort of purgatory...onward through a modern sort of 'It's a Wonderful Life' and onward still. The first track hints at how incredibly funny this man is live (if you see him, believe me, you will be standing on your chair cheering and whistling by the end of the show)...and as the album progresses through sadness, euphoria and everything in between, you will be taken into Peter's world. If you have children...I can almost guarantee you will shed tears during 'The Disposable Child.' You will be taken on a long and tumultuous journey...and you will emerge with an incredible admiration for the man and his music. The door's open...wonder waits within."
