The Civilized World album is an inspired collection of songs that bridges the years of the Praying for the Rain sound. It flows through themes of past travels, deep connections to family and friends, come and gone, to the evolving world around us. From the opening song, Jerolim, the listener is drawn into beautiful melodies, harmonies and rhythm, which sets the contemporary mood of the album. Always known for their innovative approach to music and sound, along with the beautiful merging of male and female voices, this new Cd blends traditional with modern cultures, world music and folk-roots, creating a rich, intriguing tapestry of acoustic ambience. On Fallen Star, the use of pulsing Bodhrans with featured violin and accordion, together with superb guitar playing, shows the versatile nature of the band in a distinctive Celtic-Italian feel. The album is filled with stunning musical performances, movements and intriguing vocal arrangements, like in the hypnotic groove of Rhythm of Life and the enticing guitar playing on the swampy Coffee Cup, to the sublime and meditative Sacred Stones, bringing a timeless resonance to this latest recording....Magical...
