About Time Is Well Worth Your Time
This new CD from Colorado singer/songwriter Craig Corona is a double thumbs up winner. It will get many repeated listenings on my audio device. The synopsis and album notes on this page are spot on in describing what this album is about so give them a read.

One of the many things I love about this CD is that it hangs together as a whole. It is rare when I come across an album that I can actually listen to from start to finish in one sitting and ABOUT TIME is one of these rare finds. From the album’s great have to get out of here train song opener “Station By Station” to the life turns on a dime poignant ending of “A Quick Turn”, these songs take the listener on a musical and lyrical journey that is well worth the ticket price of this CD. There was not a single song on this record that I didn’t like - another rarity these days where only just a few songs on any given CD seem worth purchasing or keeping.

Craig displays excellent songwriting skills on this album (he wrote 10 of the 11 songs and co-wrote the 11th). His beautiful, uncomplicated melodies and rhythms combine with solid, down-to-earth lyrics that are blessedly free of poetic overkill and craftily clever metaphors. Corona utilizes his own unique turns of phrase to paint vivid portraits of everyday American life whether the setting is contemporary or historical. Be it the farmer, factory worker, musician, coal miner, immigrant or office executive who wonders where his dreams disappeared to, in these songs we get to experience these peoples’ loves, losses, dreams, hardships, better times and not so better times as well as the places they live which are as much characters in these stories as the people are.

The musical styles and influences of folk, acoustic rock, bluegrass, country and Celtic crossover make for a surprising blend that works very well on this CD. An excellent cast of diverse supporting musicians adds precisely the right flavors to all of these songs and the musical production is just right being neither too heavy handed or too sparse. Craig’s easy going, smooth voice put me at ease and I actually felt peaceful after listening to this CD even though the last song made me cry.

The preview samples featured on this page are mere teasers to the fullness and richness of this album. Purchasing a single track or two in this case would be like purchasing just a chapter or two of a good book. Get the whole story. You’ll find that ABOUT TIME is well worth your time.
