The standout tracks from this release are:
Bellish tunes abound in this lovely sounding track that floats you away. A great starter that instantly grabbed me with its uplifting melodies.
If you like your guitar solos, you’ll find much to like here. This track moves along swiftly starting with some delayed melodies and crunchy syncopated basslines before descending into a cool solo at around the half-time mark.
Snazzy sounding instrumental track that really gets you into the mood for chilling. Led by a great sounding trumpet solo, the different sections of the track meld together in perfect harmony.
Summer holds the right appeal if you like your music with a soft touch. The slow building melody and bass lines move in synchrony with the musical bed of sounds laid by the ever subtle percussion and pads. I liked the additional choirish vocals but felt that they could be exposed slightly more.
One small thing I felt that could have been done better for this album was the percussion. The percussion on most tracks always seemed like icing on the cake for me and was largely overshadowed by everything else. Having said that, Cool Aberrations is still a highly satisfying listen and a must for any CC music fan.
