"I have always worked at producing the finest quality music that will appeal to everyone who hears it," Philips himself has expressed. "Because of the facilities I will be working in, I expect this project to have outstanding production and musicians. It will be a soundtrack to your life!"
Having launched it via a Kickstarter campaign page (see below), Phillips now is seeing the fruits of his musical labors. For not only are his peers lauding the 12 track gem, but each and every track has been put together so lovingly that it's hard to believe that we had to wait so long to hear them.
This American folk-rock musician, primarily influential in the 1960s and 1970s and now with 25 albums to his name, may have worked with such music notables as Donovan, Paul Buckmaster, J. Peter Robinson, Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Bernie Taupin and more, but here on Continuance he is most assuredly making some of the best music in his career.
I mean, just listening to songs here such as the thunderous storytelling of a world gone wrong in 'Man With A Gun,' or the smooth, melodic sand shifting air of 'Mirror Of Light,' will have you putting this CD on repeat, believe me.
Indeed, this knack of storytelling with a melodic backing is truly brought to the fore on the stunning trio of 'The Force That We Call Life,' 'Dancing In Survival,' and 'In Grace We Intend,' with the stand out track here, for my money, the stunningly inventive, and quite brilliant combination of sounds captured within 'Bach To The Fusion.'
