This album was recorded in 24 bit and is his third album. My only detraction is that it almost sounds like the same song on each track with slight variations. That said though I have some favorites.
Always – Ok, I don’t know about the one word lyric thing going on here, but ok.
The Potter’s Gift – This is one of my favorites on the album. It sounds like the first track, but with different percussion and it’s an instrumental.
A Butterfly In The Well – Another favorite of mine. This is a peaceful song one can really sink into. Daya takes the vocals on this and her voice fits real well.
In Bloom – This is a bit more light-hearted, but sounds like tracks 1& 2 with background sounds.
The River’s Secret – This is a bit more upbeat with a dash of world sound. The underlying progression though is the same as tracks 1, 2 & 4, but it’s still a good song
Waiting For The Moon – Another favorite of mine, this is a great sit and listen song. The imagery comes fast. Again, you’ll notice the background note progression is the same as other tracks.
Unbroken – This is almost a twin to track #1, except for the percussion.
Flow Of Love -Well, at least this one sounds different.
The Dance – Another different sound to this track, which is quite good. I really like the voice element treatment.
Mavoh Mavoh – This is once again a disguise of the other tracks.
I choose this following video for this song because of the imaging (I don’t know the language of the sub-titles):
I was not going to include A Butterfly In The Well until I came across this video:
