Uniting good music with new listeners

The Shimmering Brilliance of the Last Sunset

Here is a concept album that works on every level. The story has been told many times in many ways; the end. The decline. The collapse of civilization, and what remains afterward. Rarely has this tale been conveyed with such starkly elegant beauty as with this telling. Yahoo Geocities™ navigates the dreamscapes of dystopia as both pilgrim and explorer, on a mission but not in a hurry. Each track is more like a phase; a different place and experience along the journey. This is what a concept album should feel like. Here the artist makes all the right choices, from the album art, to the first notes, through the nostalgic ruins and dusty yearnings, to the very last ray of hope and rebirth. You are about to be taken on a journey through time, place and emotions. This isn’t just great music; it’s great story-telling. Like any concept album, it is best enjoyed in one sitting. Sit back, close your eyes, and prepare to be completely lost for the next hour.
