These are a set of beautifully written new age singer/songwriter ballads with an incredible performance and a full sound. The instrumentation on this disc is outstanding. The guitar work, violins, and bass work is reflective on the pianos and vocals. The drumming and added percussion is precise and dynamic and impressive. The songwriting is excellent and the vocals are smooth and soulful and melodically inclined. The backing vocals at times covered with reverb add depth and emotion to the tracks. The tracks have lounge, new age, pop, and jazz acoustic aspects to them which make them very diverse. These songs were written with depth and musician intuition that drips from the entire album. The overall feel is strong and powerful. The quality of production is professional and the mix is done very well. There is nothing negative to be said about this disc. Kent Heckaman reaches to a musical part of the soul we all try to reach and it’s done while keeping a sound that’s fresh with today’s sound in general. The music is timeless and that’s a quality not easy to come across. Impressive all around.
