Album Notes
"Just Visiting Planet Earth" is about the incredible experience we all have of being born, living, and dying on this planet we call the Earth.

Set in the rock genre, each song portrays different aspects of life, and different stages of development.

The journey begins before birth, and goes into the afterlife, with each song progressing through time.

Provocative lyrics delivered with a unique vocal style, combined with state-of-the-art audio wizardry, makes this an album sure to raise some eyebrows and touch some hearts!

Lloyd has studied and played keyboards since 1970. He has also studied many other instruments, including trumpet, flute, guitar, bass, drums, and voice. Lloyd also graduated Magna Cum Laude from the College for Recording Arts, in San Francisco, CA, in 1987. He has played professionally with many different groups, and worked extensively as a composer and sound designer. He currently owns "Synoptic Sounds", an audio production company in Northern California, and works as a composer/audio engineer/producer. For more information, please check out the Synoptic Sounds website at www.synopticsounds.com

Lloyd's lifelong passion for music, combined with many years of experience as a multi-instrumentalist and an audio engineer, culminates with his first solo release, "Just Visiting Planet Earth", a Rock Odyssey about the amazing experience we all have of living on Planet Earth.

Henry Cadenhdad

The best independent CD I've ever heard.
I cannot stop listening to this CD. When its cycle is finished (and the piece, in its entirety is a cycle), I am ready to begin again. Perhaps that is part of the message of the work.

The mood and feelings range from ancient and classical (Creation), love songe (Visions, Listen), rocking (Victims of Greed), light hearted and fun (Aliens), and back. All tracks lead effortlessly into the next, and bring the listener back to a complete circly.

I highly recommend this CD for anyone interested in serious, but enjoyable, music. It has been years since I've heard any album (indie or not) that fit that bill. This CD WILL NOT dissapoint the listener.

Awesome sounds. Very complex yet pleasing to listen to.
Minthorne has created a masterpiece. It is difficult to imagine that one person created this.

Ken From San Fran

Great sound reminds me of Alan Parsons Project
I really enjoyed this CD!! It reminds a lot of the old Alan Parsons Project CD in terms of quality of production and somewaht similar sound. The vocals are great and the instrumental sections seem to me to have a great light jazz stylings.


Good job LLoyd!
Lloyd Minthorne is an indelible talent in today’s music scene. His CD “Just Visiting Planet Earth” is a testament to what can happen when songwriting basics are combined with studio experimentation in conjuring up accessible music.
