Loving the Sun: Colourful

This is the follow up to Loving the Sun's debut, Dreaming of More. Joe Weninghoff's Music is teamed up with singer Christina Pollman's lyrics embellished in places by bass and transverse flutes as well as the Armenian Duduk (a kind of twin-reed recorder dating back several thousand years) played tastefully by Sandro Friedrich.

As the name perhaps implies this is a pastoral, at times ambient, work with relaxing vocals and melodies on guitar and keys in the main but with occasionally exotic arrangements which perk up the listener's interest perhaps a little more than the typical new-age or ambient fare.

A highly spiritual context pervades the songs although the vocals are often so far buried in the mix the words are indistinct. For me I found the soporific effect of the hypnotic arrangements put me to sleep so often it needed several listens to get a good feel for the album. No bad thing but rock it does not.

A very nice cool mix for chill out fanatics and those wishing to relax. Good for Yoga I suspect.
