ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A refreshing sound in modern country music, Chris Guenther speaks of truth and realism with raw vibrancy and poignancy that reflects personal conflict, rejection, confusion, and understanding - a "Honky tonk Confucius" with the artistry to tell a story with poetic lyricism. His second studio album "Destination's Unknown" is a collection of country, western, folk, and Americana that leaves listeners with a message that speaks to the American soul.


Destinations Unknown

Chris Guenther
Red Arrow Records, 2005

Destinations Unknown, Chris Guenther's latest CD release is a collection of poignantly written songs ranging from honky tonk to Americana. Drawing listeners into expressive ballads and dance hall rhythms, it is apparent that Guenther is a scholar of classic country music.

The album's ten tracks, all penned by Guenther, weave smoke laden honky tonk songs with neo-western folk balladry. Strong instrumentation lays a framework for Guenther's rich vocals, fiddle, mandolin, harmonica, and guitar work. A number of songs stand out on this album. Among them, "Catch & Release," an up-tempo contemporary flavored number and "I Gunned Him Down" a dark epic about the conscience of a gunfighter, make the listening experience memorable. Other notable tracks include the title cut "Destinations Unknown," a bluegrass influenced lament, and "King of the Jukebox" a solid country two-step.

There is strength to this music that does not require elaborate videos, spectacular performance settings or inflated hype to generate a lasting interest. In a time when country music's influences and styles are so blended and homogenized into over processed forms of pop music, it is extremely refreshing to find a piece of work so true to itself. The ten tracks on the album tell stories and paint images about human experiences, dealing with heartache, growth, dependency and reflection on life's twisting path. Ultimately, it is a work of musical styles steeped in rich history served up in their true form with solid musicianship - a voice with a delivery that sounds like he means every word he sings.

- Bruce Whitcomb - Arcade Recording Engineer

FINALLY, A NEW CD WITH REAL COUNTRY MUSIC ON IT
This CD was a great change of pace. It wasn't like all of the new pop-alternative country music that we have been forced to listen to. This album was a great blend of clasic country with outstanding vocals, and great music. I strongly recommend buying this CD.

It's REAL COUNTRY music!! Wah-Hoo!
Finally, a CD with REAL country music! We real country fans, cowboys, and cowgirls appreciate the genuine country music that this CD offers. Awesome CD!

I don't listen to the garbage they play on the radio anymore, just CD's, and this one is in my CD player more often than not. The idi... moro... (ah-hem..), not-so-wise music row people in Nashville don't have a clue what country music is. They need to listen to this CD for a lesson on what it really is. (I ain't politically correct usually neither, so how's that!? git-r-done!)

I must say, Chris had his work cut out for him to top his first CD, (if you don't have it, buy it, you'll love it!)I think he rivaled his first CD and a bit more. I really like the mix of traditional, up-beat, and story country songs; moreover, the true honky tonk flavor of this CD, this IS country music.

Now git busy and write another, one of these day's Nashville will wake up!! Good job Chris, great CD!

Crisp, Clean, Country!
Now this is country music done right. It's nice to listen to an album when you don't have to skip through any songs. Every song is unique with creative lyrics and stories. The musicianship is great and not overdone like some country stars of today that like to cram instrument fills in all over the place. This is one of the most powerful, emotional voices I've heard in a long time... Great album that I would recommend to every fan of country music.
