A strong debut
An old college buddy of mine recommended this CD. And, I'm glad he did. "Take A New Road" is highly enjoyable, both musically and lyrically. The music is diverse, yet holds together quite well. The lyrics deal with topics such as love, forgiveness, freedom, peace and brotherhood, all underscored by his Jewish faith. But klezmer or cantorial music, this isn't! Certain songs have a country-rock flair ("With Faith", "Take A New Road", "Freedom"), others have a Steely Dan vibe("Love Can Flow"), others more of a singer-songwriter feel, and one track even a bit of Mexican guitar picking ("Shine").

The highlight of the album for me is "Open The Gates (A Prayer)". First off, it is stylistically different than the rest of the album. The music is highly atmospheric, almost 9 minutes of drums and other (what sounds like African influenced) percussion/keyboards/bells/guitar/bass/echoed vocals. Sonically, it could fit on the Tin Drum album by the band Japan/David Sylvian, or maybe even U2 in its atmospheric guise. The lyrics are sung and chanted in a hypnotic manner that just draws me in every time.

The production is top notch, and Levi's cohorts clearly a talented group of musicians and back-up vocalists. A very stong debut.

You will absolutely love this CD!
Levi Ben-Shmuel’s Take a New Road is by far one of the best and most favored CDs on my rack. His music opens my heart, takes me into timeless spaces, and inspires me in powerful ways! Some of the songs are amazing to rock down to while others bring a great peace over my soul. The amazing thing about this album is that it never gets old! I have been listening to if often for years now, and every time I listen to it, I love it every bit as much if not more then when I first got the CD. The musical arrangements are brilliant and the lyrics will take your breath away! I can’t wait for more of Levi’s music to come out on CD!
