9 Muses is a recent artist to send a modern mix for those who like New Age Alternative, with melodic female vocals and a lively rhythmic beat. While listening to the CD, my foot began to tap, and it occurred to me that a lively Pop influence could be added on the album description too, since mainstream audiences will like the modern day direction this album projects.
Feel to Heal is the title from 9 Muses and first in their Elements Series, that predicts more releases to follow from the artist, with this first 10 lyrical love songs belonging in the theme of 9 Greek mythological muses, whose purpose if to liberate the listeners artistic creations related to song, literature, and the arts.
Cool Water is a decorative ornamental song, with percussion and keyboard backing trendy vocals that are displayed as light and pleasant, along with a faster tempo snare drum and groove based instrumentation, giving a nice arrangement from this first muse.
The Moon Told Me is much like the first song by the alluring vocals, rhythmic pace, and lighter melody, but the Rock style guitar runs make a noticeable distinction between this first group of songs.
The middle tempo is maintained with In My Arms, carrying much of the modern day vocals and keyboard instrumentation patterned with a similar mindset. There are also some chic percussion enhancements like heard in The Man That Never Was, which vocalises lyrical connotations of a lost love and everything that embodies.
Master Mind starts out with a memorable beginning while posturing in slower, more anticipated vocals like heard in Not Love & Just to Dance With You. Bruised Tears is also among this song formation that changes the collective mood while also sustaining the engaging sensual theme. The intriguing lyrics behind compelling female vocals are joined with moderate percussion rhythms and synthesizer backgrounds to exhibit more casual surroundings.
The 9 Muses album title song Feel to Heal rebounds boldly by a brisk tempo and set in stone ( Dun da Dun da Dunt ) energy driven Groove rhythm, having a tantalizing pronunciation in keyboard delivery that generates attention right from the start. Percussion maintains this articulated faster tempo, while the elaborate xylophone runs intermingled with the vocals effectively add an interesting angle, becoming a nice touch to a vogue song having more of a Pop resemblance.
While Feel to Heal is not a classic New Age album there certainly is an audience that will appreciate this Contemporary Vocal blend, and you can be assured can always find music to fit a wide variety of musical tastes.
9 Muses does not have a website so CD Baby.com is the place to sample the Heal to Feel album. Visit CD Baby.com here.
