ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
ACOUSTIC: Relating to sound, the sense of hearing, or the science of sound.
REVOLUTION: A sudden or radical change in a system or state of affairs.
Acoustic Revolution was a concept band, the same way that Sgt. Pepper was a concept band for the Beatles, except it was mostly John Salaway who composed, produced and created what was on this album. John Salaway performed as "Acoustic Revolution" untill another band started using the name years later... Please visit www.johnsalaway.com to hear his latest works.

lyrics terrific, music was perfect vocals couldn't be better. the design of the packaging was really on the money. i bought 2 just so i could pass it on. I don't think they could have done better.

This one will stay in your car Cd player!
Having been in the music field for over 40 years now, I can't give a 5 to this group, knowing that it must be compared to Van Morrison , the Beatles etc..But it is a 4 plus! This is up there with any of the big time productions I have heard. The workmanship in the music, lyrics, and production are all top quality. It has good solid rock, great harmonies, My favorites are "Devil Diva" and "Paradise Valley Road". The nice thing about this CD is I don't mind letting all the songs play while waiting for my favorites. I have a copy and so should you! This is a very good CD.

Buy this Disc!
I know giving a record a rating of 5 is a strong statement, but I can't help it. This cd is great. It's rare that an artist can let their influences be heard, yet maintain originality the way Acoustic Revolution has. My favorite song is Paradise Valley Road, but it really depends on my mood of the day. This record has a song for just about any mood. Buy it now!

Every once in a while, there is an album that stands out among the rest.
Every once in awhile, there is an album that stands out among the rest. To start off our New Year with a bang, Acoustic Revolution has done just that. Led by the talented John Salaway and his brother Mick, Acoustic Revolution draws the line between the indie/folk rock of today to the modern rock sound of the late sixties to the early seventies. The music itself is very progressive, pulling its influences from Beck to the days of Pink Floyd and the Beatles' Sgt. Peppers. Throughout this album, Salaway delves his way through the evils of the modern recording era, detailing the plights of the average band trying to make it in the real world. Acoustic Revolution is a revolution of sorts, letting go of the typical commercial aspects of the music industry to reveal a more honest and real approach to music. This relentless pursuit for real music with feeling is obvious as the band explores the boundaries of folk and rock, leaving behind the constraints of the traditional recording styles to blend together great harmony, melody, and lyrics. Every part of the album is planned with the utmost intricacies, leaving the listener ready for more, feeling every ounce of energy and passion. It seems that Salaway has outdone himself, writing with impressive craftsmanship and playing with excellent dexterity and sophistication. Even Salaway's vocals display solid workmanship, complimenting his well-structured songs with well-delivered emphasis at just the right moment. The overall pace of the album is almost perfect, taking the listener slowly in with the pleasantly intoxicating "There's Always Something" to the heavy, percussive, guitar-driven sound of "Sally's Back Door" and "The Great Escape." This album details what rock and roll should be about, offering an answer to the many listeners who are looking for something more than the typical formats of today. Produced with the help of DefKat Records, the album shows every facet of great recording techniques, using an amazing display of keyboards, synthesizers, guitars, bass, and percussion to provide pure listening pleasure. Heavy guitar riffs, smooth acoustic picking, steady rhythmic bass playing, and precision drumming encompass the entire album. The powerful style and artistic expression have been captured in every nuance and detail on the album, revealing more than just an album full of songs, but rather an album that explores some specific theories or concepts. Acoustic Revolution displays almost an obsessive compulsion to achieve the perfect sound, the perfect melody, the perfect harmony. This constant compulsion to succeed gives them something to bring clarity to their own identity, achieving true focus and attitude. Acoustic Revolution displays a prominent voice that is true to their own. Their fight for something perfect, something unique, is fascinating, leaving an air of mystery that offers some type of poetic justice for the average listener. This album is a revolution, and the fact remains, this band is about making real music. Really damn good music. This music takes you everywhere, taking you on a personal, emotional level to a political level. Yet, despite these dark times, there is a revolution. This is an Acoustic Revolution that is paving the way for something real--full of great promise and hope.that is sure to leave you wondering about the main issues in our lives, and maybe even wondering about a girl named Sally.
