Andre Chrys

Window to Nowhere

Review by Gary Hill

The mix of classic and modern sounds here is great. It’s an effective set throughout, too. The range of textures and influences is fairly wide. Yet, this is a consistent release. If you like strong mainstream music, give this a chance. It’s got a lot going for it.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2015  Volume 6 at lulu.com/strangesound.

Track by Track Review
Get Away With It

In some ways this reminds me a little (and just a little) of 1970s Rolling Stones. It’s a great classic rock sounding cut either way, though. This is classy stuff.

The Velvet Rut
I love the violin on this song. It has a world music folk vibe to it. This is very much roots music. It’s also very classy.
Love Don’t Understand

Another classic sounding rocker, this is also another exceptionally strong tune.

Don’t Disappear on Me
A mellower piece, in some ways this seems to have the world/folk vibe combined with the classic rock element. There is a lot of magic built into this. It’s a great cut.
Window to Nowhere
I can see why this was made the title track. It’s more of a unique sound than the rest of the set. Yet, the classic elements are all in place. This is definitely a contender for best song. There is a lot of magic in place.
Old Volvo
This roots rocker is another classy cut. It’s one of the highlights for sure.
The Benefit of the Doubt
An acoustic based ballad, this works well, too.
Falling Apart
Another mellower cut, this is more of a ballad, too. It’s a good piece, but I think it would have been better to separate these last two pieces because they are too similar.
