If you have a chance to see Andrew perform,,,,,,,I would encourage going to see him live. A versatile, creative, and awesome musician.

He opened for Leon Russell when I saw him and everyone at my table bought his CD. Seriously,,,,,

Andrew Lipke has a voice that can only be described as heaven sent; powerful and accurate through a surprising range of notes. Thoughtful lyrics? Check. Alternative rock inspired riffs? Check. Gobs of originality? Check. The album is bursting with tunes passionately and lovingly crafted, executed with style and precision by all including the very talented quartet, who serve to weave further complexity and interest under Lipke's slashing voice. This synergy forms the engine of such masterpieces as "Your Worthless Tears" and "Up to Here." Fortunately, the listener isn't beaten over the head with any one playing style; some tracks include drums & electric guitar, some include the quartet, & others with a full on blend. It's as if Lipke had a vision and simply chose the instruments and musicians who could make it happen... all this without falling victim to making the songs too much about the lyricist or any one instrument.

Probably the most unfortunate thing about this album is the title... unless by the plague, Lipke was implying something about the contagious nature of the music and how it could affect anyone... possibly even growing to infect over 100 million Europeans. If that was the aim, then by any means. Otherwise it's a rather depressing title for a collection of such aural divinity.

Here's another hot tip: See this guy live at any cost. I did and I felt like I was really witnessing something special. I've seen more than 100 live acts in my life including some multi day festivals, and Lipke w/ the Azreal Quartet is definitely in the top 3 best acts I've ever seen. Why you might ask? Originality, skill, and passion. The guy's voice is acoustic herion; this drug is best consumed right where it's crafted to insure maximum purity. Actually forget I said that... want to be able to get my cheap fix next time.

As a point of reference, here's some other music I love: Radiohead, The Mars Volta, Gorillaz, Pink Floyd, Muse, The New Deal
