I love this CD! The lyrics are poetic and meaningful expressing Craig's views about the "politics of life". The composition of the music is an example of Craig's exceptional talent - this man is a true artist! I listen to the CD regularly, just because the songs play over and over in my head and I need to hear the music/words from Craig himself. Some of my favorites are Living the Lie, It Could be You, Touch Me and Ulterior Motives, the lyrics speak to me! Silly Sentimental Fool is a diversion from the upbeat tunes that make me pause and think about my life and special memories of days gone by. This CD has had several hours of play time in my car and home and I look forward to enjoying listening for years to come. Thanks Craig for your gift of expression in this very inspirational and thoughtful piece of art.

As a musician, I was particularly impressed by the arrangements and instrumentation that felt right! There are albums out there where all the songs sound the same -- definitely not this one! Craig Abaya presents a wide range of mood, feel, and character that often comes from a very inspired and creative song writer/musician. (JOSEPH ROJO - Keyboardist for "Too Smooth" Band)

The Fine Art of Politics is a hidden gem, from the vibrancy of "Living the Lie," to the wistful "Silly Sentimental Fool," these songs will move you. They should be getting lots of airtime!! Thanks Craig Abaya for sharing your talent with us. Keep on rockin! (FIFI ROJO)

While I have had the opportunity to hear some of these songs live, the CD - produced mainly by Craig with whatever "down time" he could find - is perfect for a relaxing day in the park or at home chillin' If you really listen to his lyrics, there is a story being told with each song he's created. I am truly enjoying this CD and I hope you too give it a listen; my favorite song is Anesthetized ok, and one more: Silly Sentimental Fool (there's a video for this song). Enjoy!!!

I love this album. Craig is such a fine musician and a great writer. The lyrics are so touching. Silly Sentimental Fool is so beautiful. If this album doesn't move you, well, you aren't human! It is such a great collection of songs. For me, it was a true musical experience. TOTAL THUMBS UP! Keep on rockin', Craig! We are loving your work!
