ROWIAL I MUST PRAISE THIS ALBUM & JACK O’ THE CLOCK, a band initiated & "controlled"(?) by composing multiinstrumentalist Damon Waitkus for ≥10yrs. But, how t. f..k to describe this? Referring to other bands? Forget it. Clumsy genre-label-combinations? Worth a try: very melodic, adventurous multi-structured (fake-)Hillbilly-RIO-Fusion-singer-song ...? Very rich, intriguing, not muscular but hymnic ...?? DIG, DISCOVER & LOVE IT! (You'll probalbly get used to Damon's voice. If not? Hmh? ...)

Peter Adriaens Incredible album! After the first listen I thought 'mwah', after the second listen I got intrigued, and then, after I bought it, I couldn't listen to anything else. This record sort of redefines 'music'. It's gorgeous, delicate, extremely well executed, but impossible to define. A truly hidden gem for you to discover. Please listen to this, at least twice ;-) Favorite track: When the Door Opens, It Opens On Everything.

JACK O' THE CLOCK "presents a fine lesson on what it means to write songs that are at once approachable and human while simultaneously being incredibly profound in terms of timbre, depth of emotion, and harmonic complexity," Progulator.
