Review

Kip Winger is more than just a musician or a songwriter, he´s an artist - there´s more to his music than a simple melody or a few words that sound good.
There´s thought behind every chord, arrangement and word - he´s like a modern classical composer but in the genre of progressive rock.
If I close my eyes and listen to these songs, it´s like watching a movie - there are so many pictures floating by in my head while listening to "From the moon to the sun".
With this in my mind, I also believe that Kip is easily a misunderstood artist where some people might expect the MTV hits his band had in the early 90´s.
Nothing could be more wrong, why should Kip stand on the same spot writing "Can´t get enuff" for the 50th time?
He wants to develop as a musician and therefor has taken a step into new territories soundwise like a fresh breeze of the orient as well as classical pieces.
The new solo album is a new chapter in Kip´s career, it sounds a bit different than the previous 2 albums but also in the same time a bit like them.
There are plenty of surprises along the way on this 1 hour long album, I get new favorites all the time.
A masterpiece if you ask me.
