Album Notes
Craig Anderton has been making music professionally since the 60s, both in the studio and on stage. From his earliest albums with the band "Mandrake," to award-winning classical music projects, to his fascination with electronic dance music that started in the early 70s, Craig is constantly seeking new musical adventures that combine the best elements of everything he's discovered so far. It's no wonder the word "amazing" crops up frequently in online comments from listeners.

"Simplicity" is a 180-degree turn from his previous release, "Neo-Psychedelic Music for the 21st Century." Whereas "Neo-" drew its inspiration from the complex and layered psychedelic music of the 60s, "Simplicity" reaches further back to the days when songs were short, vocals were upfront, lyrics mattered, and singers told stories - yet wraps this all in an enticing blend of acoustic and electronic instruments, coupled with cutting-edge production techniques. Synthesizers, acoustic guitars, sampled basses, distorted slide guitar, and even rootsy blues harmonica and ukulele combine to create refreshing, honest music with one foot in the past and one in the future. As an album that reveals new facets with repeated listenings, "Simplicity" is short, sweet, and seductive.

Great songs/Great production
Really impressed with the production of this album and more impressed with the song writing.
I gave it 5 starts for a reason and not because im generous. It truly is a great piece of work. Its not only a time capsule of past music style but a very up to date one as well. Definitely a great collection of work..


This album is a Tour De Force for Craig. A cumulative Hot Sweet Stew of his decades as a Musician,Tech wunderkind, Author, and Producer. He brings all his talent, skill and studio wizardry to bear in an effort that rocks, rolls, and all points in between. Shades of psychedelia, overtones of New Wave flavors, Ageless crunch, luscious singing with inventive lyrics without.

Patrick Judson

A cumulative artwork of music.
Simplicity is a cumulative artwork of music. It's like eating a multilayered cake. There are many twists and turns with deepened suspension and emotions.

The Gift of Goodbye and Play the Game, Spygir exposes the endeavor of honesty and exposure into Anderton's emotion, as if I am actually talking to the artist.

Overall, this album is a tremendous musical effort by Craig Anderton. It's ambitious, honest but most importantly unique with an array of instrumentation only an experienced and diverse artist can deliver.

There is nothing simple about this album, I would have named it The Cosmopolitan.

Musical and Emotional Textures
Great mixture of musical textures merging traditional instruments and tones with searing electrical guitar riffs , as well as lyrical content of life experiences I can "simply" relate to .
