The blend of drums with ambient synthesizer
creates an "about to change" feeling.
Shimmery, moody, textured are three fitting
adjectives for Morning Stanzas. The thought-
like songs echo on the overall scheme of things.
Best complementated with a dose of moon and
stars, I would rename it Midnight Stanzas
- FCC Clean. Fav: 3, 4, 11.

1.Poppy... floating with rubble. Aftermath on an
explosion with mini-explosions all around.
2. Echoey, rhthym on rhthym. Fast paced.
Reminiscent of U2. Repetitive. 3. Mellow with a
pulse. Waves and motion. Blood pounds in one's
ears. 4. Perpetual feeling of getting ready. Travels
through several paths tunes/rhthym. Affirmation
and reaffirmation. 5. Transparency...melancholic
realizations. 6. Drums. Spiraling upwards to the
beginning of a day. Adrift from all in a large crowd.
7. Funky guitar intro. Walking in the streets and
putting a front. Strutting it. 8. Furling off into air.
Clicks and shimmers. In a cave, somewhere cold.
Solitary.9. Falling away. Echo. 10. Pop beat with
off- tune melody. Rocking with the noise bouncing
off your small room's walls. Purring of an engine.
11. 4 o'clock in the morning and still awake. The
dew beats off the leaves. The insomniac drives
away with his active mind, numb body. Numb soul?
City lights flash past.
