Once again Andreas has created something slightly different from, but clearly connected to, his past work. I think the vocal aspect works and that it works well. His expressiveness in conveying the intention of the lyric surprised me and, in my view, demonstrates a subtle artistry. I am reminded of Fred Astaire, who did not have a perfect voice but ,who, because of his unique talent and elegant style ,was able to work wonders with lyrics. Perhaps because of the lyrics or the gentleness of the music, this CD has affected me as strongly as my favorites of the past . On the DVD portion of the American disc, Andreas is interviewed and he elucidates his view regarding the influence that music has on emotions and thoughts. He certainly demonstrates such influence on this CD.
