Craig Karolus, Family Values, 2012

Carig Karolus - Family ValuesNow on to something not yet featured here on these pages: New Age. Yeah I hear you thinking: ain´t that listening to the sound of waves, dolphins or the grass growing? Well…. not quite! What we have here is an album by American artist Craig Karolus that has a lot more to offer.

Craig is really good at writing serene and gentle pieces of music that reflect the album´s subject really well. Having dealt with personal losses a lot the past year, he transformed his emotions into moving songs that pay hommage to the persons that inspired them.
Opener Fleurida is a perfect example. Soft and gentle, with plenty of room to breathe and enjoy his sound layers and subtle piano playing.  Jacob´s Tribute is a surprise, a much more rocking song with fantastic arpeggio´s, drums and guitar solo´s. I really like it´s arrangement overall, with all it´s twists.  The title track is another example of soothing piano with violins playing the lead melody. Here also, some drums and acoustic guitar are heard.  A lady sings some melodic lines without words as well, a little in the vein of Pink Floyd. Following that with another tasty guitar solo only enhances that comparison, just wished he kept that going a little longer…
With 8 tracks clocking in at over 41 minutes, this is a great disk to put your mind at ease with. And hey we all need that from time to time.

Craig has been all over the internet the past months and made videos for most of the tracks on offer here. I encourage you to follow the link to his website and from there head on over to YouTube to check him out. And buy this thing on iTunes or so. As yet it is not sure this CD will get a physical release so for now, chill….

Music Review - Craig Karolus, Family Values

First, I would like to state that I am not an audiophile by any stretch of the imagination. There is not an artistic bone in my entire body. Therefore when writing music reviews for artists works, my comments come purely from enjoyment of the art itself and the feelings the music stirs. Definitely NOT from any technical knowledge I have of the art. Short, sweet, and to the point, and always positive (for the most part – laugh).

I would like to present: Craig Karolus with the album Family Values.

Karolus Evokes Mysterious World of Sounds

Many listeners of a "New Age" music CD by Craig Karolus of St. Stephen will be amazed at how one man can make so many symphonic sounds with just an at-home synthesizer. The CD, entitled "Standing On Top," evokes a wide range of emotions through mysterious sounds that tend to be relaxing and meditative.
