What if

 

What if? punk listened to jazz, and jazz listened to rock, and rock listened to classical, and classical listened to ska, and ska listened to blues, and blues listened to prog, and prog listened to pop, and pop listened to hip hop, and hip hop listened to county, and country listened to rap, and rap listened to thrash metal, and thrash metal listened to opera, and opera listened to folk, and folk listened to grunge, and grunge listened to new age, and new age listened to noise, and noise listened to avant- gared, and avant- gared listened to meditation music, and meditation music listened to bluegrass, and bluegrass listen to techno, and techno listened to house, and house listened to Latin, and Latin to funk and funk listened to dance. what if?

Once I put in my earbuds and I listened to Carl’s new album all the way through I fully realized that he has a message of hope and a challenge to us all to be calmer, kinder, and safer as we face our futures on this planet. His extraordinary musicianship reminds us that if we all focus and practice and have a dream that it really can come true...At least to some degree. Carl, thank you for leading the way in caring, and quality, and in the value of having a clear vision. A very inspiring album with a crystal clear message!

"I really enjoyed your album.

After hearing so much bland, churned out "cookie cutter" music these days it is refreshing to hear music that actually has genuine artistry. 

Super well put together tunes. Great guitar and vocal hooks. Lots of influences. It's like prog rock meets Metallica and adds more harmonic depth. A little Pink Floyd perhaps. Also focusing more on the tunes rather than long  guitar solos (which you would certainly have no problem pulling off) 

I think fit this project. The songs are fairly short, get in, say what you have to say then get out. I love that pop sensibility applied to more advance music."

Mark Fitchett

What if

If Science and philosophy had a child the child would be music.
Music is primal, did we invented it? Or discovered it? layer by layer we peeled away tempo, melody, harmony and rhythm, out of a solid or fluid block of time, which is debatable.

Time is by no means simple, music happens in time, we experience it as a progression of organized sounds the passage of time seems to be the most fundamental of our experience, music could not exist without it. Maybe time is recording information onto the motion of the universe like the record that turns, or a selection of ones and zeros clinging to the fabric of time, crescendo after crescendo.

So music-seems to confirm our experience of time and that is amazingly intriguing that this structure of music lives in the atmosphere, until it falls on our ears, and presto changeo

Rock and roll.

 I feel very unqualified to offer my review, but I will try my best. My first impression is this really has the feel of a Concept Album. When ever I listen to a new Album there are usually songs that jump out at me and I form an instant liking to and I found this to be true with yours as well. Shadow of Love has the Smooth Jazzy feel that I really like. Great first Song choice. The next one that I found jumping out at me was Yo Yo, a Traditional Great Rocker. Ooh Baby Yeah has that Smooth sound that I really enjoy. Alien Spirits a Bright Jumping Rocker that reminded me of an early Beatles sound. The Last Song took me to the Dark Side of the Moon with the Pink Floyd feeling intro and outgo. I really enjoyed listening to it in its entirety and I know other tracks will become favourites as well. I would love to be able to read liner notes on each of your tracks, such as instruments used and if you were the only musician or who else played with you. I cannot even begin to imagine the scope of this project and the time and effort you expended to create it. Awesome job Carl!

Brian Barling

This is a really good album! We recommend it!
