I would give more stars if I could!
Solin has outdone himself again... he just gets better and better if you can top perfection!
The songwriting on this album is introspective,catchy, a melange of joy to the ears! The Songs are varied in style, highlighting the very essence of who Solin is. There ARE no simple words for Solin. He is a musician That I hold in highest regard.
This cd, along with his other recordings are mainstays on my listening rotation. I am totally thrilled and awaiting the next cd!

While cruising Aimee Mann’s My Space site, I came upon his music. Curious as to who Aimee might have as her top friends I discover Solin. Immediately I was hooked by a song called “No Connection” and after returning to his page time and again (at first just to hear No Connection) I realized how powerful all his posted ear candy is!

Compelled at this point to purchase his CD entitled “Energy Fair” I was again struck by his mastery of melody. “Which Way to Sanity, Take it from the top, Energy Fair, Make me attractive” all blew me away, I had a hard time tearing my ears away just to get to track 13.”What is next to Be”, a favorite of mine he had previously posted.

In a Lennon-esque vocal style, Solins lyrics are positive and down to earth. “Robin” is a straight forward retrospective on a personal relationship that typifies a connection many of us have experienced at one time or the other. “Adrienne”, in a more modern musical arrangement, follows suit. This song could and should have great commercial success.

Obviously influence by the Beatles, “Strawberry wine” sounds like it came direct from the “Fab Four”: stashed away by Epstien or Martin only to be re-discovered a half century later. I mean this only in tribute to Solin’s writing abilities. My only criticism is that Energy Fair provides too much music for one release!

On the darker side, “Streets of Westville” is the heaviest track on Energy Fair. I have to mention this song, not only because I like it so much, but because it reminds me of the musical sty lings of the late Bryan Harvey of the southern gothic band, House of Freaks.

An in creditable independent album, I hope others will listen to Solin’s Energy Fair for them-selves. Take it from the top, take it to your heart and you may also find it takes a while to reach track 18!

Some great songs, real strong music, my favorites are "I Go Ghost" "Make Me Attractive" "Strawberry Wine"
"Come On Let's Go" "Robin" "Doesnt Have To Be You" "Love Comes Once". Definitely channeling John lovingly. Solin has a lennon aura about him, glad I was able to find this special artist. One must seek out great music, thats
why we come to CD baby. Could you imagine(no pun intended) Solin going unnoticed.
This is a must have!

Energy Fair by Solin
One of my top 10 songwriters of all time - no kidding. Most people compare Solin to John Lennon and you can definitely hear his influence but, in the end, all the songs come out uniquely Solin - and it ends up being just that, an influence. Solin is an original talent that deserves the same attention as any of the greats. Energy Fair is an album that proves the independent music scene can produce artists of the highest caliber. Listen to this album instead of the drek forced down your throat by major record labels and t.v. producers- you will save your soul.

In these days on instant pop celebrities who like to promote themselves as “artists” It is reaffirming when you actually hear a true artist. In his album “Energy Fair” Sōlin’s artistry shines through on all musical fronts, first and most significant the songs are great!
The lyrics convey life experience, pain, struggle, and happiness. The melodies are wonderful and interesting and at times move to unexpected places. All the songs “groove” hard, whether they are straight up rockers like “No Connection” “Energy Fair” “Make Me Attractive” or Acoustic Pop like “Take it from the Top” or “Diamond Gold”.
These song and most of the other songs on this album are not simple 3 chord songs that happen to “Rock” and have great lyrics. They are harmonically complex songs that happen to “Rock” and have great lyrics. One of the only 3 chord songs on the album is “I Go Ghost” which has a “haunting” melody (no pun intended) with one of the 3 chords being a C# diminished chord. This is a sound that is little used in pop music today; you have to go back to the Beatles as one example to hear this sound in pop music. Which brings me to musical influences: You can obviously hear the Beatles influence in Sōlin’s music, particularly John Lennon, you can also hear Bowie, some R&B influence, Neil Young, etc. No artist creates in a vacuum you can cite influence with anyone you listen to, but I think all the songs on this album uniquely Sōlin. One of my favorites is “Robin” which is a great song. I also love “Make Me Attractive” this song has everything that appeals to me when I listen to music. It has great lyrics, a hard groove an inventive chord structure and a very cool interlude with a complex rhythmic phrase of multiple time signatures. When I mentioned Sōlin’s artistry on “all fronts” I include his playing, Sōlin is a very fine guitarist (another rarity among pop stars) and a great singer.
I hear a lot of comparison to Lennon, rightly so and a great compliment. I think Sōlin’s talent can at least be compared with the great Stevie Wonder and Sting. All these gifts in one person shine through beautifully on “Energy Fair”.
