Album Review
Reviewed 2015-06-27
– General Description: Very nice exploration of various soundscapes. Most have a good rhythm to them and they all are welcome to use as musical blankets to cozy up with while reading/relaxing or desk mates while working. (DJ ALERT: Each track has about 5 seconds of silence at the end.)
– FCC Compliant: YES
1. ***(4:26) In Transit - up-tempo; electronica with a good beat, very nice, breaking glass ending
2. ****(6:42) The Dream Within a Dream - slow and dreamy at first then glides into funky; electric piano, various electronica, electric violin
3. (7:06) Sometimes I See the Sky (Second Version) - good beat again; lots of fun exploring different soundscapes, gets a little spooky at times
4. (3:24) Flying By Night - moderately upbeat; chorus-like sound follows the other instruments
5. ****(4:35) Traveler (For Dan At 30) - slower intro that also revs up; Asian-Irish sounding with flutes but then the sax dances in
6. (5:15) In My Own Sweet Time - upbeat with delays; more on the jazz side
7. (6:11) People of the Voice - fuzzy sounds to begin, dark and dystopian track
8. (5:39) Secret Stories - the sound pathways taken with promise
9. ****(7:26) Escape Velocity (For Bob) - like being in outer space and exploring a quiet moon while in your spacesuit
