Dusk by James Klassen

Well, this is a perfect fit for Super Melodic Tracks. Listen to the opening track, "Leaving", and tell me if you don't absolutely love what you are hearing. It starts with that cool lingering melody on the electric piano. At some point, light drumming comes in, which breaks the mood a tiny bit. But that's not all. What sounds like crackling gets pumped in, just like in your favorite vinyl. Whether it's a good thing or not is debatable. Track 2, "Barren", is as the name implies a bit more on the ambient side of the lake. So, at this point, I am not sure where the album is going, which is kinda cool. Track 3, "New Life", seems to indicate something more uplifting. The chord progression seem to indicate that as well. Then, the layered piano playing kicks in and you're in for a good time. Well, that's it for individual reviews and I invite you to listen to the album for yourself as it's just a click away.
