ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Love & Spirituality, Fire & Water, Anarchy & Apathy, Violence & Compassion, and Hope all confront you as you wander down Utopia Dr." An electronic/ambient/experimental/conceptually themed musical project that starts with its beginnings in love and spirituality but then is suddenly disrupted by a devastating change in surroundings.

Matt Howarth

Sonic Curiosity Review 2006
THE JINGLE KINGS: Utopia Dr. (CD on Jingle Kings Music)

This release from 2006 features 49 minutes of uplifting electronic music.

The Jingle Kings is Jeffrey Bridges.

Dramatic piano and versatile electronics combine to generate a lavish series of tunes that capture the desolation and promise of a stretch of urban landscape. While the classical piano evokes an earnest humanity, the swaying electronics provide an airy contrast that is both dire and optimistic, depending on the intention of the melody. For both moods are represented here, although the darker tunes do seem to hint at positive outcomes lurking behind the forlorn ordeals of life.

Sighing keyboards contribute pensive atmospherics, while more stately chords coax the listener closer to the tunes. A symphonic flair surfaces every once in a while, infusing the songs with a rigorous idealism.

Some percussion is employed, but rarely to drive the tuneage into any rhythmic frenzy. The tempos are deliberate and graceful, matching the frequently heavenly quality exhibited by the music. There are a few instances, though, where gripping beats erupt, accompanied by guitar and bass to achieve a more conventional sound.

Jingles actually contribute little to this music. The melodies are mature and expansive, striving to stimulate the soul with rich emotion. As the CD progresses, though, the tunes adopt more body and drama, but the intention remains clearly one of serious deliverance instead of escapism.
