Here's a review from my buddy, Runtime. It gives a detailed and most positive song-by-song assessment. Enjoy! I believe you've gotten to the point where I can safely tell people you have surpassed the quality output of practically any artist I can think of! The quantity is amazing and the quality has always been there. In other words, its now quite a catalogue. When I listen to your albums, I picture you performing them on stage, fully orchestrated. The drumming just stands out on this album, especially on the first song. Let's go, song by song: Surfing the Horizon: Killer opening number. Listen to all those drums. Then the lead guitar lines in the middle that the bass doubles... you go boy! #3 Light: right into the change of pace. This song is uplift for the soul. #4 Easy: Get down with your funky self! Riff-a-rama. This is the one I find myself singing most during the workday. I'm singing about what makes me feel BEST. It's a fun, energetic song. Sounds like a 60's organ. And is that an acordion I hear behind the acoustic guitar break? #6 The yoga of basking... beautiful piece. Score it for full orchestra. #7 Passion is: Can I say, this song is a show stopper? From the acoustic guitar lines, it builds, climbs, soars. At the end I can only catch my breath and say "Wow". #8 Becoming: Right away I notice the keyboard lines sounding like a xylophone. I love every note of that guitar lead. Twice! #9 Discovery: Oh daddy! Does this song rock? It sure does! The big rocker of the album. This one goes up loud! Mesmirizing rhythm. More drums. Love it! #10 Bob-ji body: Your brain on drugs. LOL #11Getting Better: Not to be confused with the Beatles tune of the same name, but still, there is that "Fab" connection. What a beautiful song this is. It just gives me a warm feeling to hear it. It's purpose is like a pat on the back to one's existence. And again, love the guitar lead. 12 - 16: The rock opera, Symphonia Lovation. What's that you say, it's not a rock opera? Runtime makes the call. #12 Revelation: sets the stage. You do ring like a bell. Love how the song ends and we go into the float. Kinda "Yes" like. That's high praise in my neck of the woods, partner. #13 Incubation"...Ah, there's that guitar line. Smooth rhythm, starts to gallop in the middle, the we fall back. #14 Inder Lute:... this is truly beautiful. It can put me in such a mood sometimes when I listen to it while driving. I wish it was twice as long... on occasion , I just keep hitting the repeat button. #15 Transformation: Love how the sunth starts it and then the guitar comes in. Then love how the bass comes in with it, and listen to those drums! What rhythm! Favorite line on the album - "integrating with the rearrange". Did I say I love those drums? It's a percussion orchestra. Done live, this number would bring down the house. #16 Duja Ve: ...I've barely caught my breath from the last number. You should have had a few more seconds of silence between tracks. Anyway, here we are at the reprise. And the trilogy in five parts is a success. #17 Peace:... The softest of the soft. Almost prayer like. It's reminiscent of "Waiting" from the Unity Cycle. The album could end here, but... #18 End without End... almost like a bonus cut. This is that horse of a different color. I could hear David Bowie singing this song. #19 Croak Revisted:... He's back. I guess the ride never ends. Proves once again, we don't know where we're going, but we're on our way. Runtime, over and out.
