This is an artist who could easily be scoring films. Ben Blackett takes us through a variety of moods in this collection, each as moving as the last and every single one telling it's own story. And when it's over it's like being at the theater, watching the credits at he end of a movie from which you just aren't ready to get up and walk away quite yet.
How can this be so grounding yet so unearthly at the same time? Though this is a bit of a departure from what this exceptionally talented artist has delivered in the past, ACY once again brings us beautiful music executed in the most masterful way.
I mean, who doesn't dig a bit of feline badassness? I was like a kitty in the cat-ndy store listening to this. Every track with it's own dark beautiful flavor all coming together in a dish of ear pleasing delight. Furr-ocioulsy lovely.
The first time I heard "Wrong Turn" I was watching a storm roll in over Port Bay which was already in a state of emergency. The skies were black, the water thrashing....dark, ominous and beautiful...both the the storm and the music.
