This is a unique album. It is one in which every song counts. You will want to play this album from beginning to end all in one sitting.
The first thing you will notice is that there is an Overture and a Finale. The Overture sets the stage for the musical journey you are about to take. As you are introduced to the musical themes, you become aware that melody plays an important part in this experience. These songs recall our youth and our maturity in the ways we deal with the profound experiences of life.
The songs on this album could easily form the basis for a musical theater piece about the relationships we experience as we move on our journey through life. Relationships that make us smile, relationships that end because we are too young to appreciate the love that is being expressed by others. Relationships that end with a whimper and we almost feel that nothing has been lost. Relationships where people leave us and we cannot easily move on because their presence is in every place and every thing we see and touch. And they even explore those fearful moments when we realize that we cannot run fast enough from the emotional stalker whose very essence permeates our lives and turns our dreams into nightmares.
Yet this album is filled with many different musical styles. There are heart wrenching ballads, but there are also rock, folk, blues, gospel, bossa nova, jazz and even a children’s song that reminds us that being a child can be a cruel experience where we need a place to hide and be alone with our thoughts.
This album celebrates melody and lyrics at their finest. But in the end, it celebrates the experience of being alive and being connected to others and to life itself.
This album is all about the music. It is indeed an album you will never forget.
