t: naive 2001, Galileo Records CyberHome: www.NaiveLand.de The CD naive is a mildly progressive collection of tracks that center around depressing keyboard chordal movements and broken- hearted, self-pitying, despondent lyrics. The style and sound are similar to Pink Floyd and U2, less any inspiring guitar solos hammered out by those bands. The music sounds very drug-oriented, heroine and alcohol coming to mind. The singer "t" sounds amazingly like Bono from U2 and could probably cover U2 without effort. The compositional style lacks rhythm and is very slow moving. The chord progressions are dark, monotonous, oppressive, and depressing. The instrumentation is keyboard and vocal centric and presents a cohesive sound overall, much in the same style as Pink Floyd, less the grace of the guitar of David Gilmour. To be fair, the first track, "She Said", has a good build up and delivers a decent climax, despite its droning repetition in the build up. The lyrics are heart-felt and will reach anybody who has endured lost love. "She Said" has a very U2 sound to it and is probably good enough to get radio air time. This music might appeal to listeners who dwell in the depression that Pink Floyd voiced. But, my thinking is that life is short and you only get one go around. So, pick yourself up, brush yourself off, get over it, get on with your life, and find the silver lining in the cloud. Don't waste your life on drugs and alcohol. You can not get the time back once it is lost. And, you definitely will not get your life back if you lose that to drugs. It is not a game. It is not cool. Being dead from heroin is definitely not cool.
