ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Review of No Umbrella video
Submitted by Bill D., MT-BC, Neurologic Music Therapist, Seattle, WA - July 20, 2014:

With their sophomore video single, No Umbrella, Continuous Audio Transmission has the observer reminiscing about the days of MTV when they actually played music videos. Performers, in an effort to get their music heard and to gain more exposure, originally used this limitless, creative medium to expand their audience. Unfortunately today, producers, managers, and directors focus the images more on shock value and the music itself becomes secondary.

From the first notes of the piano and spoken word intro the listener is drawn into a visual and audio journey. When the guitars and drums explode into the speakers, the music starts building and the story expands and leaves you hanging on what comes next. Although the length and musicality brings back nights listening to Queensryche's: Operation Mindcrime and Dream Theater's: Metropolis Part 2: Scenes from a Memory, this updated feel brings another level to the experience. The driving musical composition combined with intelligent lyrics invite multiple listens to fully grasp the complexity, but still stands on its own without visuals.

Adding the visual content to the mix creates layers of subtleties that bands in recent history tend to overlook in favor of blatant generic images of unattainable Facebook fantasies. The visuals in "No Umbrella" don't take away from the music, but rather add a background that supports the music, which, at its core, is what songwriting and performing are all about.

Independent artists of this level of musicianship should be celebrated and shared. I'm absolutely not against bubblegum pop music, and have my fair share of guilty pleasures in music, but being a musician I'm also a fan of musicians using their creativity, talent, and desire to focus on what matters most...the music.
