    Horizon

    by Samuel Barker

    When I began to place this CD into my player, I was certain I would be hearing another emo-pop punk band whining about not getting laid or having no one to love. I had no press picture to gauge the sound off of appearance, no liner notes to read the lyrics, I only had a bright yellow disc with the name and track listing on it.

    I reluctantly popped it in and braced myself for the boredom of hearing another band that sounded like everything else I had heard that day. Once I hit play, “Orange Blossom,” which contained acoustic guitar complemented, greeted me by fuzzy electric guitar and even some piano. As soon as the music started an enchanting female voice reached out and grabbed my attention.

    The songs on this album are drenched in pop sensibility and jazzy rock grooves that make a pleasing mix. Arpeggiated chords and warm vocals always give songs a comfortable sound.

    Horizon is the musical equivalent to chicken soup or some other type of comfort food, which makes you feel warm and fuzzy. With this album, there is no angst or epic problems pushed upon you, just simple songs dealing with love and living life.

    While there is no challenge to this album lyrically, the songwriting and lyrics make you feel welcome. This sense of comfort is not easily found in current day music. Relax and enjoy the absence of anger and politics for a few minutes…isn't that nice?
