Absence of Coincidence
Absence of Coincidence review written by Paul Vinken. I have listened to your CD thoroughly and like your style! I had associations with ToTo, Todd Rundgren, Level 42, Little River Band, Kid Creole and more southern cotton belt influences. Track number 5, (Don't be afraid) is nothing more than a bloody musical masterpiece, as far as I can be the judge of things. And I am not your casual reviewer from a newspaper, I am a musician as well - aware of the chords and tricks that send rookies in the woods at a concert. In this song, the smart consequent weaving of the disciplined female background vocals in major key with the melody and chords on the foreground that were there from the start - is a brilliant concept. You must have had the idea beforehand that this somehow should fit, and proved your theory to be correct in a very subtile and sophisticated execution. It is the type of song that gets me turned on. It is too hard to follow for 97.8% of the general public worldwide. The remaining 2.2% are composers and musicians like us, and they will acknowledge the elegance of the two melodies and the underlying structure that forms the basis of this Impressive Beverly Hills Mansion.
