Album Notes
Edward Thurstons' Soundtrack of Life is a R&B/Jazz/Dance Groove CD that is full of great songs by this up and coming composer.

Emulating the retro sound of the 70's updated for the 21st Century, every song has overtones of love, strength and courage. This CD is for people who really like feel good music.

The CD starts off with the anthem "New Day". With it's mellow funk groove and neo-gospel like arrangement, the tune is a winner. The CD also features the funk/acid jazz dance tune "Age of Aquarius" , the mellow groove of "Love Comes Shining Through" and the pop song about a low income couples' love for each other, "Wanna Be With You".

The hidden gem on the CD is "The Lost Children" which Thurston sings about children being abducted from their families. You would expect your normal arrangement for a song of this nature but Thurston employs a hip-hop beat, story-telling lyrics and a Native American percussive break to bring the point on home. It's a song you can dance to and get moved to do something about abducted children.

The interludes "Chakra Melody", "Closer To Home" and the instrumental, "Tabla Song" which features Thurston playing an African Xylophone, moves the CD along within it's concept.

Edward Thurstons Soundtrack of Life is full of memorable retro grooves and messages.

Really Different
If you're wondering where spiritual soul went, look no further than this album. Can't understand why this album isn't getting major airplay throughout the United States (I guess it has to do with spiritual messages in a society that doesn't really care about their spiritual existence and plus, it doesn't fit the format of a Gospel music station).
I really like the song, Love Comes Shining Through. It reminds me of something that Frankie Beverly and Maze would write but with an adult contemporary feel. I like the voice because it's different (maybe it has something to do with him being from the islands). I heard that Another Life was written for the people who died in the 9/11 attacks and it's a good song for people struggling with the lost of a loved one. This guy writes solid stuff. Something that is missing in Gospel and R&B.


Good Album
reminds me of how soul music and albums use to be. good concept. the funk and rythymns are great especially the funk on age of aquarius...this brotha is going to be a great asset to the music industry. thanks for the bringing the funk even when it comes to social issues.

cool and interesting
this cd is pretty cool, straightforward and honest about spirituality in all things. i like love comes shining through. the shame of it is that you can't get this type of artist played on radio so you have to find in the indie circle.

i really like this cat and he's going places. my kid even likes the CD and that's saying a lot!


Great CD
Tghis is a timely CD and the grooves are great with spiritual messages. Real positive without preaching or being "religious!"

I like this album!
i picked this cd up from a record store and I didn't know this cat was on cdbaby. i like this cat! it's about time someone concentrated on lyrical content and have a spirituality behind them concerning topics and issues.r&b and dance has become so dumbed down about whos man is stealing whose woman and bling bling. this guy is smart because he deals with many issues on this album. man, you can feel the vibe coming through this record! I like it because it's raw and not all glossed up. plus the beat of each song is catchy. I've got to give props to this guy for sounding different. he's got a great range of topics to sing from which are all inspiring and i like the song about a low income couple appreciating the love they have in their lives. that cut wanna be with you is excellent. this guy should be getting major airplay! out!! breaze

Bob Simmons

Great debut
Finally! Soul and funk is back with meaningful lyrics. This guy writes songs that have meaning and depth. He must be very educated because he's got a great range of knowledge in his songs and they are uplifting. I personally like "The Lost Children" which reminds me of Steely Dan, Earth, Wind and Fire over a hip-hop groove. The song speaks about child abduction and having hope. I also like "Love Comes Shining Through". The lyrics are meaningful and outstanding. I'm looking forward to more great music from this guy.


Good album
Where did this guy come from? It's about time that R&B had an album that reminds you of when lyrics were important. A lot of R&B funk albums are one dimensional when it comes to lyrics but this album talks about self-improvement to a couple that is in love with each other even though they don't have money. This album is really cool.

Mike from Seattle

good album
different CD. i was expecting the usual R&B but this guy reminds me of guys like Curtis Mayfield who wrote meaningful words which is something that Soul and R&B doesn't have. it's refreshing to hear an artist that can talk about abducted children, astrology, life after death and have a love song all in one album that's danceable. good album.

i emailed thurston and he seems to be a pretty nice guy too.

freda! a fan

i like this!
boy! I ereally like "love comes shining through. It's a great song with meaningful words. I like this album because it's very introspective but meaningful at the same time! this is a good CD to put on when you need encouragement and you want to dance!
