“MAGICAL AND EMOTIONAL & REAL”

I HAVE WRITTEN SEVERAL HUNDRED MUSIC REVIEWS SO FAR AND STILL WRITING DAILY, I HAVE MOST RECENTLY FOUND A MUSIC ARTIST HER NAME IS COLETTE KAVANAGH, AND WOW WHAT A TRUE BREATH OF FRESH AIR. SHE HAS A COUPLE OF NEW SONGS THAT ARE REMARKABLE AND MOST ENJOYABLE. THE FIRST SONG IS CALLED “ONCE IN A LIFETIME” AND WOW WHAT A SONG TO ACTUALLY HITTING HOME PERSONALLY.  THIS SONG REALY BROUGHT ME TO TEARS BECAUSE COLETTE WROTE A SONG THAT EVOKED FEELINGS AND EMOTIONS THAT I HAVE BEEN GOING THROUGH IN MY CURRENT JOURNEY. THE SONG COLETTE HAS A MAGICAL AND EVER BEAUTIFUL PITCH TO HER VOCALS AND HER TRUE REFLECTION OF WHAT SHE’S SINGING ABOUT. THE SONG IS A SONG THAT REFLECTS WHAT WE ALL SEEM TO GO THROUGH ONE TIME OR ANOTHER AND THIS JUST HAPPENS TO SPEAK TO MY OWN PERSONAL LIFE AS I WRITE THIS REVIEW OF A WONDERFUL AND AMAZING SINGER SONGWRITER THAT HAS TRUE TALENT AND IS DESERVING OF YOUR EARS. THE NEXT SONG IS EQUALLY AWESOME THE SONG CALLED “LAST KISS” AND COLETTE SHOWS HER CONTINUAL MAGIC AND SHEER AND BEAUTY OF HER TOTAL MUSIC CRAFTMANSHIP THAT REFLECTS TOTAL EMOTION AND ONCE AGAIN COLETTE STRUCK A TOTAL NERVE IN MY EMOTIONS THAT WAS SO WELL THAT I AUTOMATICALLY KNEW THAT COLETTE HAS A SOUND THAT IS UNMATCHED AND HER PERFECT WAY OF SINGING A SONG THAT SPEAKS VOLUMES. I AM SO THOUROUGHLY IMPRESSED WITH COLETTE. COLETTE IS ONE OF THE SINGER SONGWRITERS THAT KEPT MY EARS AND MIND AND MY HEART INVOLVED ALL THE WAY THROUGH. EACH SONG SENDS A MESSAGE OF LOVE AND THE LOVE TO THAT SOMEONE SPECIAL. AS I LISTENED COLETTE HAS A SOUND OF AN ANGEL AND PROJECTS WITH THE SOUNDS OF AN ALMOST KAREN CARPENTER AND ADELLE WITH A SOFTER TOUCH THAT IS ANGELIC IN PROPORTIONS. PLACING COLETTE IN A SPECIFIC GENRE WOULD BE RATHER DIFFICULT, SINCE COLETTE JUST HAS A VOICE THAT EXPRESSES AND CROSSES SO MANY BOUNDRIES, SHE IS JUST AN AWESOME SINGER AND SONGWRITER. THE LAST SONG THAT COLETTE HAS SENT ME IS CALLED “HOLD ON” AND THE SONG IS AN AMAZING SONG AND COLETTE SENT CHILLS TO MY SPINE AS I LISTENED TO THIS AMAZING MUSICAL ARTISTRY AND COLETTE KAVANAGH IS ONE TO WATCH. COLETTE HAS SUPERIOR MUSICAL RANGE AND HER LYRICS ARE POINTED AND TOUCHED ME AS MY LISTENING EXPERIENCE CONTINUED. I THANK COLETTE FOR SHARING HER TREMENDOUS GIFT OF SONG AND MOST BEAUTIFUL LYRICIST AND SONGWRITER, IN MY OPINION COLETTE IS IN THE STARS ALREADY AND I ENDORSE AND AWAIT WITH OPEN ARMS OF TOTAL APPRECIATION FOR HER MAGICAL CRAFT AND BEAUTIFUL GIFT OF SONG. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO HEARING MORE FROM COLETE AND HER INCREDIBLE VOCALS AND MUSICALITY THAT TOUCHED MY HEART AND SOUL.

” MASTER & COMMANDER OF FUSION”

AS I LISTENED TO THE AMAZING MUSIC ALBUM FROM JATSE TUOMINEN AND HIS TRULY FLAVORFUL ALBUM CALLED UNTOLD STORIES. THIS ALBUM REALY IS AMAZING FROM THE START TIL THE LAST TRACK. THE ALBUM KICKS INTO HIGH GEAR RIGHT AWAY WITH THE TRACK CALLED “EXTRAORDINARY”, AND YES THIS SONG MIXES A POWERFUL KICK INTO HIGH GEAR AND SHOWS NO SIGNS OF GIVING UP. THE ALBUM HAS A SOUND OF FUSION JAZZ BUT ADDS HINTS AND TAKES A COUPLE OF PARAGRAPHS FROM THE BLUES AND ROCK SCENE WITH IT ALONG THE WAY. THE SECOND TRACK IS CALLED” HYBRID FUSION’ AND JARTSE JUST KEEPS THE FLAVOR INJECTED INTO THE MIX AND THE SONG REALLY GETS UP AND ADDS THAT BIG KICK THAT IS TO THE POINT OF UNREAL. THE DRUM SOLO WITHIN THE SONG IS OUT OF THIS WORLD AND JARTSE SHOWS OF HIS HOT LICKS THROUGHOUT. THE NEXT SONG CALLED “MESA” AND ONCE AGAIN THE FUSIO BASED GUITAR AND HOT LICKS RUN ITS WAY THROUGH THE FINGERS OF THE SONG AND JARTSE REALLY CAN PICK HIS WAY THROUGH AND MAKE SOME SCREAMING SENSE OF THE SONG. “TIME TO GO” HAS AN ALMOST ANTHEM FEEL TO IT, AND REALLY SHOWCASES JARTSE AND HIS ABILITIY TO SLOW DOWN THE TEMPO AND SHOWS HIS BLUES ON THE SLIDE GUITAR AND WHAT A MAGICAL FEEL TO THIS SONG. WITH THAT BEING SAID THE NEXT TRACK CALLED “SIMPPA GOES TO TOYSA” AND THE GUITAR RIFFS KEEP FLOATING THROUGH, AND A TRRULY AMAZING PIANO SOLO PLACED WITHIN THE SONG THAT GENTLY TRANSITION YOU TO THE NEXT LEVEL OF JARTSE AND HIS MOST AMAZING GUITAR WORKS. “TROUBLE SHUFFLE” JARTSE SHOWS OFF WITH ADDED RIFFS WHICH ADD AN ELEMENT OF INTERMISSION FOR YOUR EARS AND ALLOWS ONE TO CLEANSE AND RESET. JUST IN TIME FOR THE  NEXT SONG TO REALLY SMOOTH OVER YOU LIKE A COOL BREEZE, AND JARTSE REALLY HAS THAT TRUE BLUES INFLUECE AND ALLOWS YOU TO REALLY FEEL IT IN ALL OF HIS TRULY WONDERFUL AND MAGICAL AND YET COMPLEXITY WITHIN HIS MUSICAL REALM. “UNTOLD” IS A FINE EXAMPLE OF THIS AND JARTSE REALLY BRINGS IN HIS FULL GUNS TO THE SPEAKERS AND REALLY ALLOWS THE TRUE FEEL OF WHO JARTSE IS AS A MUSICIAN AND A TRULY BLUES GUITARIST AND ROCKED MY WORLD AS I LISTENED TO HIS AMAZING GUITAR LICK THROUGHOUT THIS AMAZING SONG THAT BLEW ME INTO THE NEXT WORLD OF BLUES GUITARISTS. “NINE LIVES” HAS A TRULY BLENDED AND SUPERB MIX OF ROCK AND BLUESY FEEL AND SHOWCASES JARTSE AND HIS TRUE AND SUPRB TALENT ON THE GUITAR THROUGHOUT THIS WONDERFUL AND AMAZING ALBUM. SONG BY SONG THROUGHOUT THE ALBUM JARTSE STRUMS HIS WAY INTO YOUR EARS AND THE BLUES LICKS THAT ARE PRESENTED WITHIN THE WINDOWS AND WALLS OF EACH SONG, AS THE NEXT SONG CALLED “YEAH RIGHT” JARTSE AND THE AMAZING BAND SHOWCASE THE STYLE THAT THEY ARE A BLUES ROCK AND FUSION SOUND THAT IS AN AMAZING AND SUPERBLY FINISHED AND SHINES THROUGH WITH DELIGHT AND AMAZEMENT. WITH THE LAST SONG CALLED “FAREWELL’ JARTSE IS SIMPLY PUT AND AMAZING AND TRULY FINELY TUNED PLAYER AS A BLUES GUY, AS A JAZZ GUY AND A ROCK GUY JARTSE HAS WHAT IT TAKES AND THROUGHOUT HIS WONDERFUL AND AMAZING AND UTTERLY MAGICAL ALBUM CALLED “UNTOLD STORIES” HE IS A TRULY GIFT TO THE MUSIC INDUSTRY AND ONE TO RECKONED WITH FOR HIS AMAZING GUITAR PICKING AND STRUMMING AND SUPERB AND MASTERFUL SOUND, THE ALBUM IS REMARKABLE AND IS ONE THAT WILL ALWAYS BE WITHIN REACH TO ALLOW OTHERS TO HEAR WHAT TRUE TALENT IS OUT THERE. I THANK JARTSE FOR INTRODUCING ME TO HIS SUPERB STYLE AND AMAZING GUITAR AND MUSICIANSHIP ON HIS WELL POLISHED AND REFINED ALBUM CALLED “UNTOLD STORIES”.

IF YOU EVER HAVE HAD THE PRIVELEDGE TO LISTEN TO MUSIC LIKE I HAVE THE REAL PRIVELEDGE TO DO. WITH THE LATEST ALBUM CALLED “TRUCK DRIVING MAN”  FROM STAN MATTHEWS AND THE ALBUM HAS HUGE AMOUNTS OF TRUCK DRIVING SONGS THE ALBUM STAN HAS A WAY OF SINGING AND MAKING MENTIONS OF TRUCK AND ALL ABOUT THE TRUCK DRIVING MAN IS ALL ABOUT. THE FIRST SONG CALLED “TRUCK DRIVING MAN’ STAN HAS THE ABILITY TO CONVEY FEELINGS ABOUT THE TRUCK DRIVING MAN. FROM THE START THE SONG HAS A GREAT RHYTHM THAT GETS STARTED RIGHT OUT OF THE GATE, AND HAS NO SIGNS OF IDLING IT’S WAY THROUGH THE MUSICAL INTERSECTION OF TRADITIONAL COUNTRY MUSIC.  THE NEXT SONG WHICH IS CALLED “WORKING MAN’S BLUES” & IS A PROFOUND THOUGHT OF HOW MUCH STAN THINKS AND HIS RESPONSE TO THE TO THE MAN THAT WORKS FOR A LIVING AND ALL THAT HE HAS. THE STRUMMING ACTION TAKES YOU ON A RIDE ALONG IN THE CAB, AS STAN TELLS YOU HIS OPINION, AND ADDS HIS FEELINGS ON THE SUBJECT. AS THE SONG STROLLS THROUGH, THE AWESOME GUITAR OF STAN BECOMES A VITAL PART OF THE SONG AND MAKES ONE FEEL THE REAL FEEL OF A TRUE TRUCK DRIVING EXPERIENCE. BRINGING YOU BEHIND THE WHEEL FOR ANOTHER SPIN IS THE SONG CALLED “SEATBELTS” STAN HITS THE STRUMMING ONCE AGAIN AND ADDS HIS VERBAGE TO THE SONG THAT BRINGS IN A LITTLE BIT OF THE TRUE STRUMMING AND ADDS TO THE SONG THAT USHERS IN THE TRADITIONAL COUNTRY FEEL TO IT AND I MIGHT ADD, IT’S REALLY NICE, WHEN STAN BRINGS IN THAT LOWER END. “I’M AS GOOD” IS A REAL FALVORFUL SONG THAT STAN REALLY SHOWCASES HIS GUITAR WORKS, WITH FANCY BUT A STRAIGHT FORWARD SONG WITH SUBSTANCE AND MEANING STAN HAS STORY TELLING AND REAL LIFE SONGS THROUGHOUT. STAN HAS THE ABILITY TO CONVEY HIS STORIES THROUGHOUT HIS GIFT OF MUSICALITY. “LIGHT EM UP” STAN BRINGS IN HIS FALVORFUL ABILITIES TO THE FOREFRONT AND THE TRADITIONAL SOUNDING COUNTRY SONG THAT JUST SOUNDS SPLENDID AND HAS THAT FLAVOR OF GOOD OLD COUNTRY MUSIC FEEL TO IT.  STANS CONTINUAL MESSAGES AND STORY TELLING ABILITIES STAND OUT ON THIS ALBUM AND MAINTAINS HIS POLISHED AND SUPERB GUITAR LICKS THAT SMELL AND FEEL TRADITIONAL COUNTRY ALL OVER THEM. THE SONG CALLED “THE EAGLE ” STAN KEEPS HIS RHYTHM STRUMMING ALONG AND KEEP HIS UNIQUE STORY TELLING WITHIN HIS SONG, AS THIS PLAYS YOU FEEL AS IF YOU ARE THERE EXPERIENCING THE FEELINGS OF ACTUALLY BEING WHERE STAN IS TAKING YOU MUSICALLY, AND HAS A QUITE GOOD ABILITY TO DO THIS. WITHIN THE MUSIC THE FEELINGS ARE WITH YOU AS THE MUSIC PLAYS, BETWEN THE MUSIC AND STANS CONTINUAL EMOTION GUITAR PLAYING IT ALLOWS YOU TO ACTUALLY FEEL HIS EMOTIONS AND BRING IN THE HINTS OF NATIVE FLAIR TO IT. “LIVE” THE SONG STAN BRINGS IN A SINGER NAMED HELEN SHELDON, AND HAS A HINT OF TRUE TRADITIONAL LOVE SONG. THAT MAGIC IS FELT WITHIN THIS SONG WITH STAN & HELEN, WHERE STANS GRAVEL VOCALS AND HELEN HAS THAT RASPY FEEL TO IT THAT ADDS TO THE EMOTIONAL VALUE OF THE SONG. A VERY SAD SONG BUT I WANT TO THINK EVERYONE SEEMS TO LIKE A SAD SONG, SINCE THIS IS A TRUE EMOTION THAT WE ALL GO THROUGH IN OUR LIVES. THE SONG IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE ON THE ALBUM AND STAN & HELEN MAKE IT COME TO THE SURFACE WITH THEIR EMOTIONALLY CHARGED LYRICS AND VOCALS. ” SAD SONG’ IS YET ANOTHER SONG THAT STAN SINGS HIS EMOTIONAL HEART OUT AND THE STRINGS ON THIS ARE EVOKING AND RAW, AND ARE SPLENDID, AND KEEP THE EMOTIONAL VALUE ALIVE, AND ONCE AGAIN HELEN SHELDON HAS A RANGE IN HER VOCALS THAT MAKE THE SONG TOTALLY BELIEVABLE AND LIFE LIKE.  TRUE FEELINGS BETWEEN STAN AND HELEN THEY’VE GOT A SOUND THAT IS UNIQUE AND MOST ENJOYABLE. ALL IN ALL THIS ALBUM BY STAN MATTHEWS HAS A TRUE FEEL OF TRADITIONAL COUNTRY AND SHARES THE BACK PAGES OF A BAR ROOM, AND  HEARING HIS STORY TELLING SONGS OF LIFE & WHAT MATTERS. THE DUETS BETWEEN STAN & HELEN ANRE MAGICAL AND EMOTIONALLY CHARGED AND FULL OF RAW EMOTION THAT SOFTENS ONES HEART. I THANK STAN FOR ALLOWING ME TO EXPIRENCE HIS FLAVORFUL MUSIC WITH ME AND HELEN SHELDON FOR HER TREMENDOUS ADDITION TO THE SOUND THAT MAKES THIS ALBUM A DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH, WAITING TO BE BROUGHT TO THE SURFACE.

“LIVING THE DREAM”

THE LATEST MUSIC PROJECT FROM MOTION DEVICE A BAND THAT I CAME TO KNOW THROUGH A SONG THEY SING CALLED RESPONSIBILTY, AND THEY ARE QUITE AMAZING BAND. THE BAND HAILS FROM TORONTO CANADA AND DESERVES THE ATTENTION OF YOUR EARS, WITH THE NEW DOUBLE ALBUM CALLED “WIDE AWAKE” THE BAND LED BY TREMENDOUS VOCAL RANGE CAPABILITIES OF SARA IN WHICH SHE WAS ELEVEN YEARS OLD WHEN THE BAND STARTED GARNERING ATTENTION ON SOCIAL MEDIA. THE BAND CONSISTS OF SARA, HER SISTER ANDREA WHO PLAYS BASS AND KEYBOARDS, AND THEIR BROTHER DAVID ON DRUMS AND A COUSIN JOSH ON GUITAR. THE NEW CONCEPT ALBUM IN ENTITLED WIDE AWAKE IS AMAZING AND WHAT A SUPERB ALBUM, THE MUSIC IS DARK IN SOME SPOTS, HOWEVER THE BAND HAS A SOUND THAT IS UNMATCHED WITH WHAT IS BEING CURRENTLY HEARD. THE FIRST SONG IS CALLED “ALIVE” AND THEY REALLY BRING THE HOUSE DOWN, AND THE SOUND IS UNMATCHED AND QUITE REMARKABLE. SARA AND HER VOCAL RANGE IS SPLENDID AND HAS A HAUNTING MYSTIQUE AND THE SONG IS REMARKABLE AS YOU LISTEN. THE NEXT SONG CALLED “THE MACHINE’  IS EQUALLY DARK BUT ONCE AGAIN THE VOCALS OF SARA BRING IN HER REMARKABLE LYRICS THAT ARE REALLY ONE TO CONTEND WITH. THE GUITARS RIPPING THROUGH THE SONG JUST ADD THAT MUCH MORENESS TO THE UNBELIEVABLE SOUND THAT MOTION DEVICE PORTRAYS ON THIS AMAZING AND EXCITING ALBUM. “LIVIN A DREAM” HAS THAT ELEMENT OF DEEP RIFFS THAT RIP AND SHRED THROUGH THE SONG AND THE HAUNTING CONTINUES AS SARA SHOWS OFF HER GRINDING AND POWERFULLY CHARGED VOCAL RANGE. “TEMPTATION” IS ANOTHER RIP ROARING SONG THAT STARTS OUT WITH A BANG AND REMAINS ALL THE WAY THROUGH, TEARING AT YOUR GUTS AND EARDRUMS. “DIGITAL CAROUSEL’ IS AN INSTRUMENTAL SONG THAT ALLOWS ONE TO CLEANSE YOUR PALLET, JUST IN TIME TO OPEN UP AND SAY “YOU’RE SO COLD” WHICH HAS THE ELEMENT OF TRUE ROCK AND GUITARS ARE AMAZING AND SARA JUST  BLAZES OUT HER VOCALS AND RIP INTO YOUR EARDRUMS AND SHOWS NO SIGN OF GIVING UP. FOR LACK OF BETTER WORDS, THE BAND IS TOTALLY RELENTLESS AND PULLS AND TUGS AND RIPS ITS WAY INTO YOUR SPEAKERS. AS THE ALBUM PLAYS ON THERE SEEMS TO BE A LITTLE REPRIEVE IN THE WORKS WITH A SONG CALLED “ANGEL” BUT THE LYRICS AND CHARGED AND EXPLOSIVE ALONG WITH SARA LEADING THE CHARGE INTO GUITAR AND ROCK AND ROLL SUBMISSION. AS THE ALBUM ROLLS THROUGH THE NEXT SONG CALLED” THE OTHER SIDE” CONTINUES WITH THE DARKNESS AND MYSTIQUE. WITH REAL GOING PAST THE SPEED LIMIT MUSICALITY THROUGHOUT AND DRUMS THAT ARE TO RECKONED WITH ANYONE WITHIN THE INDUSTRY. THE NEXT TRACK CALLED “GOLDEN STRINGS” IS SIMPLY PUT AMAZING AND BEAUTIFUL, AND THE SONG HAS THAT SOUND THAT SHOWCASES THE BANDS TOTAL DIVERSITY THROUGHOUT AND THIS SONG SHOWS THIS IS PERFECT STYLE. THIS SONG TRANSITIONS INTO THE NEXT THE TRACK CALLED “DIVIDED” AND SARAS VOCALS ARE AMAZING AND BOLD AND OUT THERE IN SPACE AND TIME AND YOURS FOR THE TAKING. “MELTDOWN’ HAS A RHYMIC BEAT TO IT AND ONCE AGAIN KICKS SOME ROYAL BUTT, THE SONG SELECTIONS ON THIS SUPERB ALBUM ARE OUTSTANDING AN THE PRODUCTION VALUES SHARE THIS THROUGHOUT. THE SONG HAS A LITTLE ANGST TO IT AND SARA USHERS THIS IN THE MIX AND MAKES A HUGE DENT IN THE TOTAL MUSIALITY OF THE ALBUM AND IT’S CONTENT. ” IS THIS REAL” AND IT’S GUITAR WORK IS AMAZING AS I LISTEN TO THE SONG AND REALIZE, MORE HOW RELEVANT, WITH THIS SONG SARA AND THE BAND SHOWCASE THEIR REAL AND HONEST LYRICS AND TOTAL MUSICALITY AND WHAT MOTION DEVICE IS ALL ABOUT. A BAND WITH PURE TALENT AND PROMISE. AS I MUST FLIP THE RECORD OVER AND BEGIN SIDES THREE AND FOUR OF MY NEXT PART OF THE TREMEDOUS SONGS AND TALENT THAT IS MOTION DEVICE. WITH THE START OF DISC 2 THE FIRST TRACK CALLED “DEEPER” HAS A GROOVY KIND OF FEEL TO IT AND REMAINS TO SHOWCASE MOTION DEVCES FLARE FOR THE POWERFULLY CHARGED MUSIC FLAVORED AND ENHANCED WITH THE LEAD VOCALS OF SARA. IF THERE HAS EVER BEEN A BAND THAT JUST “FITS” THIS WOULD BE IT. THE SONG HAS AN ABILITY TO TRANSISTION FROM ONE SONG INTO THE NEXT WITH SEEMLESS EDGES AND FLAWLESS PERFECTION. WITH THIS IN MIND THE NEXT SONG CALLED “WIDE AWAKE” IS A STRONG AND GOOD EXAMPLE OF THE BAND AND THE SOUND THAT WAS FORMALLY INTRODUCED TO. “UNBROKEN” IS A HARDER EDGED WITH THE GUITAR THAT HAVE A REVERB EFFECTS AND ECHO FEELING TO THEM AS THE SONG STARTS AND MADE ME FEEL ON THE EDGE OF MY SEAT THROUGHOUT, ALMOST AWAITING A RIP ROARING  ATTACK OF THE GUITAR, HOWEVER THE SONG REMAINS TO HAVE A SOFTER SIDE OF MOTION DEVICE. WITH THIS BEING SAID THE NEXT TRACK STARTS OUT SLAM BAM WITH A SONG CALLED ‘WARRIOR’ ROCKS YOU INTO THE NEXT BLOCK WITH THE GUITAR RIPS ANDS THE DRUMS BANGING YOU ACTUALLY FEEL THE ADRENALINE OOZING THROUGH MY VEINS. WITH THIS BEING SAID THE NEXT TRACK CALLED “GRADITUDE” SLOWS THE TEMPO A LITTLE, TO COOL YOUR VEINS OFF AND IS SOOTHING AND A NICE APPROACH AFTER HEARING THE SONGS THAT REALLY RIP INTO YOU.  “SOUL SHAKER” BRINGS IN THE BASS AND SARA CONTINUES WITH HER VOCAL RANGE THAT REALLY DOES INDEED “SHAKE” YOUR SOUL TO A NEW LEVEL AND THE TOTAL SOUND OF NOT LETTING LOOSE. THE NEXT TRACK CALLED “WE ARE THE ONES” AND HAS SARA AND THE BAND KNOCKING IT OUT OF THE PARK AND THE CONTINUE USE OF SLAMMING GUITARS AND THE RHYTHM IS ONE THAT HAS A STRUM AND HUM AND CLEAR THE WAY FOR SARA AND HER TREMENDOUS AND TOTAL CLARITY OF HER VOCALS. THE LAST SONG ON THIS MIRACULOUS ALBUM FROM MOTION DEVICE IS A SONG CALLED “THE INFINITE WAVE” IS A MIX OF SEVERAL DIFFERENT BUT THIS HAS THE CLARITY OF THE BAND MOTION DEVICE, AND WHO THEY ARE AS A TOTAL BAND AND THE TREMENDOUSLY AWESOME SOUND THAT THEY CREATE, AND THAT IS WHAT THE SOUND THAT I HEARD CONSISTENTLY THROUGHOUT THIS REAL AND VIVID AND SHARES AN ELEMNENT OF REAL ROCK AND ROLL TALENT. I WISH TO THANK BILL CROUCH FOR HIS INTRODUCTION TO THE BAND OF BANDS MOTION DEVICE AND ALLOWING MY EARS TO BE EXPOSED TO SUCH PURE AND CLEAR TALENT, AND KNOWING THAT GOES TO PROOVE THAT WE ALL SHARE A COMMON BOND, A LOVE AND PURE APPRECIATION FOR MUSIC, AS MY COMPANY SOUND WAVE ONE HAS BEEN SAYING ALL ALONG “HEARING IS BELIEVING” AND THIS IS ONE BAND THAT YOU HAVE GOT TO HEAR TO TRULY BELIEVE AND “WHERE ALL MUSIC MATTERS’ AND THIS BAND DOES MATTER AND WOULD LOVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE THEM IN A SHOW INA LIVE SETTING. TO SARA, ANDREA,JOSH AND DAVID THANKS FOR YOUR TREMENDOUS GIFT OF MUSIC AND I WILL BE LOOKING FORWARDS TO HEARING MORE OF YOUR AWESOME TALENT IN THE FUTURE, BECAUSE WITH YOUR TALENT THE SKY IS THE LIMIT AND KEEP ON “LIVING THE DREAM” MY FRIENDS.

“SENSUOUS COMPOSER”

I HAVE TRULY AND HONESTLY BEEN TOTALLY BLESSED TO WRITE SEVERAL MUSIC ARTISTS REVIEWS OVER THE LAST 25 YEARS. WITH MANY, MUSIC ARTISTS FROM COUNTRY TO ROCK, POP, BLUES, COUNTRY, JAZZ AND EVEN OPERA AS OF LATE. WITH THIS BEING SAID A TRUE FRIEND HAS HONORED ME AND BLESSED ME TO WRITE A MUSIC REVIEW OF ONE OF THE MOST TALENTED AND TOTAL MUSICIANS OF THE LAST THREE DEACDES, I AM SPEAKING OF THE SINGER SONGWRITER AND AT ONE TIME BACK UP SINGER FOR LIONEL RICHIE SUPERSTAR, RICHARD MARX AND HIS SPLENDID AND SUPERBLY MASTERFUL WORK OF SHEER MUSIC ARTISTRY WITH HIS ALBUM CALLED “BEAUTIFUL GOODBYE” AND THESE WORDS REALLY ARE PROPER AND FITTING FOR SUCH A MAGNIFICENTLY AND OVER THE TOP PRODUCED ALBUM BY RICHARD HIMSELF. THE ALBUM STARTS OUT WITH A SONG CALLED “WHATEVER WE STARTED” AND RICHARD IS SIMPLY AMAZING AND HAS NOT ONLY SENSUOUS LYRICS BUT THE TOTAL MUSICALITY IS MAGICAL AND HAS A REAL TEXTURED FEEL TO IT. THE MUSIC IS SUPERB AND I REALLY FELL IN LOVE WITH THE SOUND THAT EVOLVES FROM THIS SUPERSTAR OF THE EIGHTIES POP ICON NAMED RICHARD MARX. RICHARD HAS ALWAYS HAD A WAY TO CLIMB INTO YOUR HEART WITH HIS SUPERB MASTERY OF THE LOVE SONG, BUT WITH THIS ALBUM HE’S GONE INTO THE LEVEL OF SHEER MAGIC, NOT ONLY IN PRODUCTION VALUE, BUT THE TOTAL PACKAGE. THE NEXT SONG IS CALLED “SUDDENLY AND RICHARD ONCE AGAIN PERFORMS FLAWLESSLY. THE SOUND USHERS IN ALL ELEMENTS OF TOTAL MUSICALITY AND ELEGANCE AND ONE CAN REALLY FEEL THE SMOOTHNESS OF HIS VOCALS WHICH MATCH THE MUSIC PERFECTLY. THROUGHOUT THE ALBUM IT HAS BITES OF A CLASSICAL FLEMENCO AND IS SPRINKLED WITH THE SOUNDS OF  LATIN GUITAR SPRINKLED IN THROUGHOUT EACH SONG. “INSIDE’ IS A SONG THAT KEEPS THE SENSUALITY OF THE ALBUM FLOWING, AND LISTENING TO REALLY BRINGS IN THE TOTAL VULNERABILITY IN RICHARDS VOICE AS HE SINGS EACH SONG WITH A TRUE TOUCHING STYLE.  WITH THE NEXT SONG CALLED “BEAUTIFUL GOODBYE” RICHARD CONTINUES HIS REALLY SENSUAL EMOTIONALLY CHARGED AND WHILE KEEPING THE SENSITIVE GROOVES PLAYING ON AND ON, IN A TRANCE LIKE STATE, BRINGING IN A MAGIC AND TRUE AND TOUCHABLE SIDE TO EACH SONG. IT’S BEEN QUITE A WHILE SINCE I HEARD A RICHARD MARX SONG, AND I HAD MY EARS SET TO HEAR THE SOUND THAT I REMEMBER HEARING LAST TIME I REMEMBER HEARING HIM, SING, AND WITH THIS BEING SAID, I HAD TO PLACE ALL THOSE MEMORIES ASIDE, THIS ALBUM IS TOTAL EXPERIENCE FROM THE START TO THE LAST. THE ALBUM IS LIKE SAVORING THE MOMENT OF THE TASTE OF A FINE WINE ON YOUR TASTING PALLET AND BRINGS YOU INTO THE SEXUAL REALM THROUGH RICHARDS ABILITY TO CONVEY THESE EMOTIONS & FEELINGS THROUGH HIS TRUE TALENTED WAY OF HIS PRODUCTION VALUES. “FORGOT TO REMEMBER” RICHARD ONCE AGAIN SHOWS A LITTLE ROCK ON THIS PARTICULAR SONG AND THE RHYTHM HAS A FASTER BEAT TO IT IN CLASSIC RICHARD STYLE, AS IN HIS PREVIOUS POWER BALLADS. “TURN OFF THE NIGHT” IS A PHENOMENAL SONG, THE ORCHESTRAL MOVEMENTS ARE AGAIN REAL AND TOTALLY CONVINCING AND THE LYRICS ARE AMAZING, REFLECTING PASSION AND EVOKING TEARS THROUGHOUT THIS TRULY MASTERFUL SONG. THIS SONG IS MY PERSONAL FAVORITE ON THIS ALBUM, WHERE I HAVE MEMORIES OF MY OWN EMOTIONAL LEVEL AND RICHARD WITH THIS SONG SUMS UP MY OWN EMOTIONS WITHIN THIS SONG. “HAVE A LITTLE FAITH” RICHARD POURS IN A VERY POWERFUL DOSE OF HIS MUSICALITY AND ALLOWS HIS HEART TO BE SEEN THROUGH HIS CAREFUL AND VERY DIRECTED LYRICS. “LIKE THE WORLD IS ENDING” I HEARD HINTS OF THE YOUNGER RICHARD MARX IN THE LYRICAL CONTENT AND THE MUSIC, BUT BY FAR THIS IS THE MATURE RICHARD MARX OF TODAY AND THE ALBUM REFLECTS THIS MATURITY THROUGHOUT & I LOVE THIS ALBUM. THE NEXT SONG CALLED “HAVE A LITTLE FAITH” HAS A BEAT, ALTHOUGH THE SMOOTHNESS AND SHARP AND PRECISE VOCALS IN AN ALMOST FALCETTO APPROACH ARE PRESENT, RICHARD MAINTIANS THE CONSISTENTCY THROUGHOUT THIS MARVELOUS ALBUM. WITH THIS ALBUM WHICH IS PRODUCED BY RICHARD HMSELF REFLECTS WHAT KIND OF TOTAL MUISCIAN RICHARD HAS EVOLVED INTO. WITH THE NEXT SONG CALLED “TO MY SENSES, RICHARD,  POURS ON THE AMAZING ORCHESTRATION AND THE SONG IS A DELIGHT TO HEAR AND ITS AMAZING TO HEAR SUCH A REAL AND PURE ALBUM THAT YOU ARE ABLE TO HEAR THE MATURITY IN RICHARDS VOCALS, AND HIS EVOLUTION AS A TRUE CONTENDER IN THE REALM OF POWERFUL AND SUCH A SENSUOUS AND PURELY POLISHED MUSICAL ALBUM. “GETAWAY’ HAS A COUPLE OF HINTS OF RICHARDS PAST MUSIC, BUT ONCE AGAIN THE MUSICALITY IS WHAT TRULY STANDS OUT IN THIS OUTSTANDING AND MAGICAL EXPERIENCE OF A MUSIC ALBUM. THE LAST SONG ON THIS ALBUM IS CALLED “EYES ON ME” AND I HAVE BEEN TOTALLY WOW’D AND AMUSED AND PURELY TAKEN AWAY TO ANOTHER DIMENTION OF A TRULY TALENTED AND AMAZING MUSIC ARTIST. RICHARD SHOWS HIS TENDER AND TOTAL LOVING SIDE ON THIS SONG AND JUST ANOTHER REASON TO OWN THIS AMAZING, AND PURELY SMOOTH AND SENSUOUS ALBUM THAT REFLECTS PURE LOVE AND EVOKES EMOTIONS AND ULTIMATELY REFLECTS WHO RICHARD MARX IS AS A MATURE, TOTAL SINGER, SONGWRITER AND TO THE COMPOSER LEVEL WITH THIS ALBUM. WITH A TOTALLY EARFUL OF AMAZEMENT. AS I LISTENED TO THIS PURELY MAGICAL AND MOVING EXPERIENCE, I THOUGHT BACK TO THE DAY OF WHERE I FIRST HEARD RICHARD MARX AND HIS SONG CALLED “DON’T MEAN NOTHING” IN 1987 AND TO EVOLVE TO THIS LEVEL IS A TRUE GIFT FROM THE HEART AND I HIGHLY RECCOMEND THIS ALBUM WHICH IS A MASTERPIECE OF  MUSIC HISTORY. I THANK JAMES BRUCE FOR THE INTRODUCTION OF RICHARD AND HIS WONDERFUL MUSIC OF TODAY AND LOOK WITH GREAT ANTICIPATION OF WHAT IS TO ARRIVE NEXT FROM COMPOSER, PRODUCER MUSIC WRITER, SINGER RICHARD IN HIS WORDS I’LL BE “RIGHT HERE WAITING”

“SHAKEN, STIRRED & MORE”

WOW I HAVE BEEN WOOSHED INTO THE WORLD OF BAM, CRASH AND SMASH, WITH THE EP FROM SABRINA FALLAH, CALLED “KISS IS A KILLER” AND MY GOSH WHAT A TREMENDOUS VOICE, WITH THE FIRST TRACK CALLED “DIDN’T LAST” SABRINA TAKES THE VOCALS OFF THE CHARTS WITH HER GEAR DRIVEN EXCITEMENT AND KEEPS THE THROTTLE DOWN ALL THE WAY THROUGH WITH THIS EPIC AND RIGHTEOUS SONG. THE NEXT SONG ON THIS AMAZING EP IS CALLED “HURT” AND SABRINA REALLY HITS THE NAIL ON THE HEAD, AND HER VOCALS ARE CLEAR AND PRECISE AND MOST ENJOYABLE. SABRINA HAS YET A SIMPLISTIC APPROACH IN THIS SONG, RESEMBLING A SIT DOWN ON THE FLOOR KIND OF MUSIC AND SABRINA REALLY HAS HIT A SOFT SPOT I MY HEART WITH THIS SONG, A POWER BALLAD OF SORTS, HOWEVER HER ACOUSTIC PLAYING JUST ADDS IN A FALVOR THAT GOES UNMATCHED AND IS A WONDERFUL SONG AND WELL WRITTEN. AS I LISTENED ON TO THIS MIRACULOUS AND AMAZING EP I REALIZED THAT SABRINA HAS A CONNECTION WITH HER MUSIC AND SHOWCASES THIS WITHIN THE CONFINES OF HER JUST AWESOME SONGWRITING AND SUPERB PLOISHED LYRICS AND THE MIX .SABRINA’S MUSIC IS AMAZING AND SOUNDS PERFECT. PERFECT EXAMPLE OF THIS IS THE NEXT SONG CALLED “KISS IS A KILLER” WHERE THE GEAR DRIVEN ROCK ROLLS RIGHT THROUGH YOU AND HAS NO SIGNS OF EXITING UNTIL IT REVERBERTAES THROUGH YOUR SPINE, AND LEAVES YOU SHAKING IN WHAT’S LEFT OF YOUR BODY. SABRINA HAS THE TOTAL MUSICALITY IN HER BONES AND REALLY SHAKES YOUR WORLD AS YOU LISTEN TO THIS ROCK AND ROLL EP THAT IS A BREATH OF FRESH AIR AND DAMNED HARD EDGE ROCK & ROLL. I REALLY LOVE THIS EP. THE NEXT TRACK CALLED “PARADISE COMES WITH A PRICE” SABRINA HAS A AMAZING ABILITY TO CONVINCE YOUR MUSICAL PALLET TO HUM AND STRUM ALONG WITH HER MUSIC, SHE HAS A WAY OF BEING SO DAMN EXPRESSIVE WITHIN HER MAGICAL AND EMOTIONAL LYRICS AND BALANCED WITH HER GUITAR RHYTHM MAKES IT A REAL AND HEARTFELT AND UP AND PERSONAL EXPERIENCE THAT IS OUT OF THIS WORLD, AND I REALLY DIG HER STYLE AND CHOICE OF SONG, THROUGHOUT THIS ONE HELL OF AN EP. THE LAST SONG ON THIS GEAR DRIVEN AND REALLY SUPERB EP SABRINA HAS THAT SOUND THAT JUST SAYS IT ALL. THE SONG IS CALLED”STUCK UP” AND SABRINA HAS THAT CONTINUED SOUND THAT IS THE RICHEST SUGAR CAKE COUPLED WITH THE SWEETEST ICING EVER. AS I REALIZED THIS WAS THE LAST SONG ON THIS TREMENDOUS EP AND WAS SADDENED TO SEE IT END, LEAVING ME TO WANT MORE. MEANING I HAVE ANTICIPATIONS OF HEARING MORE FROM THE TREMENDOUS AND AWESOME MUISCALITY OF A ROCK & ROLLER THAT DOESN’T QUIT, AND REMAINS TO BE ONE OF THE BEST ROCK ALBUMS I’VE HEARD IN QUITE A FEW YEARS AND I THANK SABRINA FOR ALOWING ME TO HEAR SUCH A SUPERB EP, I DO EAGERLY LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING MORE FROM THIS POLISHED AND VERY REACTIVE MUSIC ARTIST NAMED SABRINA FALLAH. THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN SABRINA FOR YOUR FRIENDSHIP AND WHEN YOU GET YOUR FULL ALBUM OUT PLEASE CONTACT ME I WILL BE HAPPY TO WRITE A FULL REVIEW OF YOUR TREMENDOUS TALENTS, AND WHEREVER I TRAVEL WITHIN THIS JOURNEY OF LIFE, MAY I BE BLESSED TO SEE SABRINA IN A LIVE CONCERT, NOW THAT MY FRIENDS WILL BE AN TOTAL EARTH SHAKING MOMENT IN MY LIFE.
