This is a collection of songs that assumes the story of a young man's journey out into the world and the cause and effect consequences that come about from the places and people he encounters.
"The City" marks the point of arrival. The hustle and bustle of city life is represented quite well sonically in this song.
"Harry's Dream" reflects a positive, up beat hook reflecting the polarized sides of every ego.
"Harry" has a sinister side and the theme is evident. This song is a show stopper. It's not goth, just good old fashion rock and roll.
"Lucky" is a well orchestrated breath of fresh air, reminding our character that memories of old friends who love us can carry us through our darkest hours.
"The Story of a Wayward Stranger" sets up a room where we may sit and listen to our character's story. We never get the details, but we get the idea of where he's been.
"The Loved Ones" This opus reveals the unanticipated approach to military life. Missing the simple things in life while risking it all for the greater glory.
"Beside Myself" results in the final crack that brings the walls down. A short but brilliant song, a flash of light that shines on a new beginning.
"Love And Life" chimes in with a good vibe and another optimistic hook.
The album ends with "Oh Amsterdam", giving the listener a point of reference as to where he's been.
