ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
As this year marks my fortieth year on this planet, I wanted to make a very personal album - an artistic statement, as it were - a musical attempt of sticking my flag into the soil and shouting "this is me!". Well, this is me. The Luckiest Man in the World...

Why "The Luckiest Man in the World" - well there are a number of reasons. Firstly, because I am blessed with a wonderful family who make me feel the luckiest man in the world. Secondly, because we've had a few close escapes and one event in 2008 could have nearly caused my demise. The event was such that it transformed me from someone who just drifted through life to someone who appreciated every moment each day brings. Then there are my kids who have added another layer of meaning to my existence.

The album was recorded relatively slowly during 2010 and marks a transitional period in my life. It represents an ending but also a beginning. I hope you enjoy it.

EXTRA! EXTRA! EXTRA!
Initial pressings of the CD will come complete with a DVD containing 30 minutes of performances, some of which appear on this album. The DVD is R0 and NTSC encoded and should work with the majority of DVD players and home computers.

Excellent Adult Alternative Rock CD
Singer/songwriter Darren Lock releases an excellent Adult Alternative Rock CD, “The Luckiest Man in the World.” This album is bursting with passion as Lock takes you into his world of reflective lyrics as he is one who appreciates life and does not take anything for granted. The song, “Change of Life,” is a perfect example of this as Lock sings the thought provoking lyrics with a strong and solid tonality. The razor sharp guitar on the song, “You Are Allowed to Enjoy This,” complement the intoxicating vocals with impressive energy. The title track, “The Luckiest Man in the World,” has a Pink Floyd like sound as you feel the psychedelic ambiance take you into a mystical mindset. Each song on this album offers irresistible melodies supported by rocking instrumentation. The album, “The Luckiest Man in the World,” is a distinctive treasure of well crafted songs and is an album you will really enjoy.
