Rob Costlow –Solo Piano –Woods of Chaos

Rate: 10/10

After listening ‘Woods of Chaos’ you get to know that Rob Costlow is an extremely talented composer. When I checked his website I found out that, he has been also well acknowleged lately. I can only congratulated him and hope that he will keep up with his good work.
As for the music it is, as we can know from author’s description, a solo piano pieces. All of them are quite similar, all of them remind me of little-town West Coast America. Costlow’s music has this magic of WASP neighbourhood States, full of little wonders and great tragedies. His melodies sounds like instrumentals from Richard Marx or Don Henley’s songs. Beautiful.
My best moments are keyboard strings at the beginning of Tulip tress and completely sentimental Not alone.
I would like to listen to Costlow’s music somewhere in the New England area, in some small city near Boston. It should be played from an abadonned Mouse from the colonial times for better atmosphere ;-)
The cover is appriopriate for the kind a music Costlow plays. The composer and its environment. Just right.
It’s ten. Undoubtedly. Ten.

Thanks for linking to my music blog. I've done the same for you.

I've had this album for a while, and I have to say Rob Costlow's music is top notch. I'll be posting it on my blog soon, too.
