The Tunesmith's Apprentice will remind you of . . . well . . imagine a collaboration between Carlos Santana and Beethoven, or perhaps Jimmy Page and Mozart. Although the Tunesmith's Apprentice fits neatly into the 'Progressive Rock' genre, there are difinite hints of jazzy-pop-rock stylings as well. Lyrics are heady, poetic and thoughtful. Each song has its own tale to weave. A bit of Edgar Allen Poe.
"Visitors" speculates what might occur if beings from another planet visited Earth. . . ."Visitors from beyond the moon, past the Milky Way."
"Have We The Right" decries the use of animals as test subjects in laboratories, and compares their plight to that of humanity in the modern world.
"Dream Girl" is a jazzy Moon Dance like song about dreamy visitations.
"Power" blatantly states the obvious: love is the strongest force in the Universe.
"Blue Winds" sings praises to the solace and serenity of a gentle zephyr. . . ."I long to feel your breath on me . . ."
"If The Bombs Fall" describes the the net result of a nuclear encounter; . . . " and though the sun and the moon will keep shining, Jupiter's moons will keep spinning 'round . . . if the bombs fall . . ."
"In My Dream" is about as close to a love song that you will get on this CD. . . . "midnight winds leave a song in the trees . . ."
"In The Beginning" states the obvious: as we age, there is never enough time. . . . ."as my Winter claims its hold, my aspirations start to die . . . "
"Land Of Dreams" is an impressionistic description of a dream. . . . "I saw children in run-away flowers, chasing the breeze," . . . ."I saw the end of days, now it's time to turn the page."
