What a talented group this is! Beautiful vocals, harmonies, duets, melodies, great instrumentation-they have it all. Most of the songs are written with broad strokes-you can fill in the details yourself. As someone who is deeply interested in lyrical content, I enjoy and appreciate this approach. The production is superb, the band really plays well, and you can tell this group has worked long and hard with each other. The songs are mostly about the joy of music, dysfunctional families (but I'm not quite sure who's at fault), love gone wrong, love gone right, and leaving that anger behind. There's a slight hint of country on a few of the songs, and it adds a nice texture to the sound. My favorite song is the hauntingly beautiful "The Lotus Hour" with Diane Christiansen doing the vocals and some subtle slide guitar played by Al Perkins. Another favorite is "There's A Magic" which is a song about love for the long haul, and is the only "real" country song on the disc. The rest of the cd is really great, and on any given day I have a new favorite, which is really the hallmark of a great record. Highly Recommended!
