Most of the songs on this album literally give me goosebumps no matter how often I listen. Like" Movie on the way" down how it slowly builds up, and the song "Eureka" are both goosebump givers. " Through the night softly" is a beautiful piano ballad with a sax toward the end, and I love" please patrnose our sponsors"(I feel as if I heard this song in a previous lifetime). And can't get enough of "Happy Holidays"--short song with great lyrics.
One thing I love about O'Rourkes style is he experiments with different sounds and has some of his songs that are just instrumentals(probably the majority of his songs) and some where he adds his vocals which are great in fact.
It is mind boggling to me that artists like O Rourke go unrecognized throughout the world. I just recently found out about him by pure circumstance and taking a chance on new music. Wish I knew about him 15 years ago. While there are idiotic no talented musicians who are played on the radio and shown on tv who have more or less no talent and their "music" is truly horrendous.
But I promise you anyone who buys this album will like it if not love it no matter what your musical inclinations or proclivities are. This album is truly breathtaking.
