"Sensuality 2002" - Kuelle Magazine, Steven Hewitt,2002:
From its Enigma-like beginning simply called "Sensuality (Intro)" a listener will quickly become aware that they are in for something special with Elu's second CD entitled "Sensuality 2002". Written, arranged, performed, engineered, and produced by Jeff Mettling-also known as Elu (pronounced ae-loo), "Sensuality 2002" is a not to be missed CD.
Jeff's music and technical expertise have won him four awards and over fifteen nominations for "Best Musical Production" by the New Mexico Music Industry Coalition. His music has been in the number one spot at IUMA.com and in the Top 40 position at mp3.com.
Elu says this about his approach to music: "The goal is to create relaxation and harmony of the human spirit allowing the mind to explore the endless boundary of fantasy and reality. Although music is created by the individual, its meaning is defined by the listener."
My favorites on this nine track CD are: "Sensuality (Intro)", "Romantic", "All That", the Top 40-ready "The Meaning Of Love", the exceptional instrumental-"Into Bliss", "Ever After", the mystical "Something Wicked (Comes To Mind)", and the great closing track "Sensuality 2002". The CD not only features the meticulous music and vocals of Jeff Mettling, but also the beautiful voices of singers Shelley Lopez. The two women's vocals further enhance the mood on this very unique CD.
