Reviews

blend of sounds
I absolutely love this disc. The infusion of piano and drums with various string instruments creates and interesting blend of sounds. The violin is really amazing, thereís something haunting and beautiful about the way Matt Mcbane plays, and apparently the way he composes as well. There are parts of the first track that I would want to follow me around all day, like theme-music. Itís moody and mysterious. I usually put on instrumental music as background sounds while Iím working, but I found myself sitting and just listening to this entire record without moving onto anything else. The composition sounds really complex, but also somehow works in this really beautiful way without being overwhelming. Every track has its own sound, but the overall span of sound on the disc from start to finish flows really well.
