Salling is sounding even lovelier than before and his lyrics are intelligent. The music is different but somehow the same...Though I can attest to the fact that genres are played around with, there also seems to be a somewhat similar base beat that links the majority of them. For a listener like me, that's not an issue, but for some it may be.
This is a CD that I desperately wanted to sing along with as I played it for the first time; it lures you in. This music is relaxing and perfect for a night at home; In fact, this has quickly become the album that I create my drawings to.
It should also be noted that this CD is family friendly; there's nothing outrageous for your children. There are some religious tones to a few of his tracks, but if you're like me and enjoy Christian music, it's a refreshing take. If you're someone that's staunchly against it, the references are not preachy and really aren't numerous, so I doubt that it would irritate you.
I'm hoping to get copies for friends for the holidays; this is a keeper! (My personal favorites are "Musical Soulmate", the catchy "Scarlet Glasses" and the beautiful album closing "Fugitive")
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to dust off my guitar and attempt to learn these chords so I can finally enjoy playing along.
What I like most about this album is that it's so un-like his character on "Glee," which was totally unexpected. I love how Puck is kind of scary and sexy all at once. But this music shows us something else, and I think it's very sweet. Keep up the good work, Mark, and I look forward to your future work.
Thanks for your time folks.
Sincerely, R.A. McDowell
Salling himself wrote, produced, played every instrument on, and had at least one hand on the production of every single song on this album, and it shows in every note -- a tinge of honesty, a touch of self-deprecation. There's an intent and a theme that runs through each song, building a beautiful concept album that is at the same time completely fun to listen to.
It's hard to nail down a genre for "Pipe Dreams" -- it's part old, old style southern rock, part folk, part pop, even a little country and one half-rap song, but Salling dances through the eclectic eccentricity of the album competently, his deep, lovely, whiskey-smooth voice carrying the listener into whatever concepts he is trying to convey. While it's true that "Pipe Dreams" is a bit more produced than "Smoke Signals" was, there isn't anything lost this time at bat; if anything, there are substantial gains as certain innocent mistakes are lost and more of an experienced edge/eye looks to maintain musical competency.Read more ›
