This album is unlike anything else out there. Surely, all artists impart their own individuality onto their music, but, in this respect, Tigran is in a class of his own. All of the songs teem with emotion, and each song is expertly crafted and blended, with really subtle attention being paid to both tempo and rhythm. It's jazzy, classical, and folksy all at once. Hence the title of the album, I suppose. Some of the hooks are melodious and sweet while others are existential and dreary -- a bipolarity that we can all relate to. Also, he's willing to occasionally sing along, in his native language as well as in the universal language of diddly-doos and chants. In my opinion, "Rain Shadow" starts things off quite seductively, it's very welcoming and weird, "The Spinners" keeps the movement fresh and new while introducing a mantra-esque quality to the album, and "The Legend of the Moon" signals the beginning of the end in the best possible way. These are my three favorites, and the space between them is just right. But all the songs are great and the entire album is complete.
Buy this album. If you like jazz, are self-reflective, and piano particularly strikes your soul as it does mine, you will undoubtedly be pleased!
