ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“...distinctive. A stellar achievement for a solo artist. It is whimsical, fully self-actualizing and cutting edge.” -Culture Art Rag Critic, Jacques Laiberte

John Ludington's Full Release Orgasmic Audio Production, Clouds Today, truly and sincerely, has courted me slowly, lured me in with a passionate intensity that isn't too creepy, whispered secrets in my ear, and finally won me over. I am in love. every song the opposite of what critics would call "filler". substantial as an old desk, I am wealthy in its richness. John's Voice is a vast mystery of precise passionate tone. on the overall, I might say that John's voice is a witches brew of the voices of Greg Brown, Donovan from the sixties, and Ben Harper. not a terribly educated declaration, but I mean every word of it. During the Album, John Floats through several different Octaves and Tones, honestly and in perfect proportion to what the guitar is doing, and it is this versatility that makes the album a treat and makes me match up Donovan with Ben Harper. This album is completely Accoustic, just John's voice, maybe two tracks at once, I can't tell, but not very often, and it seems just one guitar track. Simply Raw and Pure. You might think from that description that it might be boring, the songs, too much not enough production. Want to know what I thought when I first went to listen to it? "Too Complicated. too much going on, wait, that's pretty, what, did he just get discordant? wow, there's a lot going on...too much for my silly ass at this moment..." Now, I am up to Six Listens. In Love. John's a Genius. His wordery is poetic and descriptive, dabbled with intelligent metaphors and seems well thought out. His Guitar Playing is Deliberately Chaotic, creating a soundscape that is at once Soothing to the Ears, and Electrifying to the Musician inside of all of us that tries to follow along. It Rocks, Clouds Today. a 14 Track Long Continuous Outpouring of Passion Mixed into Two Stereo Tracks that sound like a F******* Symphony. I Shit you not. excuse my expletives and have a nice day. - Dean Haakenson of Be Brave Bold Robot

John is a High Glider
When someone stole my car stereo, I was more pissed that they stole ''Clouds Today'' then I was that they stole my deck. John's music makes you feel like your part of a club. A club of earthlings, all spinning around the sun, innocent, curious, beautiful. I think if aliens come John should be the first to say Hi.
He's a light, obviously doing what he was put here to do.

John Ludington Is Awesome
I love this album! It is always in my favorite picks. I'm profoundly pleased with the sometimes funny, sometimes sad, but always honest and beautiful poetry I'm singing along to. A very moving album. This is an artist I recommend to many.

I love this cd
A couple of years ago I dated a guy that made mixes. One of his mixes had "something crazy" on it. He had seen John play in Prescott and bought the cd. Well... anyway that's how I found this cd and I love it - have been searching online for current info forever and now here it is. This is a brilliant cd.

Makes you think - soothing tunes - great message
This CD brings me back to the 60's when music was about the life we all shared, when it made you think aobut the way you lived it and when you just wanted to sing along...Clouds Today will take you back or if you weren't there in the 60's what a great new experience this will be for you!!
