Agony In The Garden
To Mack Perry,
I am so glad you liked the review you deserved it! I was absolutely floored by your music and lyrics, they were visionary and the pictures you painted with lyrics and music was mind blowing not to mention your amazing vocals, so sincere, powerful and honest.
I often review albums from the past as I feel that the music by many of today's artists lacks sincerity, honesty and more importantly soul. It's almost as if the music of today is just churned out with very little thought put to it. It seems to lack that power, that ability to still be as good today as it will be tomorrow or even ten years from now. Music should be the soundtrack to your life, music should be what emotions sound like. Now, with all that in mind it does seem that "musicianship" a term that I often think of when I listen to music has gone out the window with todays modern music. Here is the definition of musicianship;
Noun. Musicianship - artistry in performing music, artistry, prowess, art
Now when I speak of musicianship, I talk about that ability to "think in sound" and create a work of art, a piece that actually provokes you, moves you and makes you think, lyrics that can paint a sea of images in your mind, take you on a journey, that can touch you and give your feelings and emotions a voice and that for me is the hallmark of a great musician, and if today's charts are anything to go by, I struggle to find anyone on there that can do this, which can be quite disheartening, many a time I have turned the music off because the music seems so bland. I would much rather silence then some mindless drivel being passed off as the next best thing. I hadn't blogged in a while because of this.
It seemed to me, that musicianship had been lost, until a twitter follower suggested I listen to you, Mack you have restored my faith in music and more importantly you made me fall in love with music again, your musicianship is absolutely amazing! I still have your songs on heavy rotation and every time I hear them I fall more in love with them such is your talent and flair, you are a true musician and it is your true musicianship that makes you one of the greatest artist/musicians that I have ever heard!
Music as good as yours deserves the greatest audience!
Till next week
Peace out my bitches!
