5 stars Being a new member to Progarchives I chose to do my first review on the most recent CD I have purchased which was Andy John Bradford's Oceans 5 - Return to Mingulay. I enjoy listening to all types of music from rock, prog, metal and blues and am always seeking out new music to enjoy. Being a visual artist (paint, jewelry, mixed mediums) I find I do my best work when the music is stimulating my inner soul. My technical musical talent is nil and my love for certain music is based off the emotions created and felt while listening. I listen to albums several times before creating personal opinions as I want the music to "grow on me" and allow it to permeate my soul.

Return to Mingulay is a musical ear gem more precious than any found on earth. The ability to create a feeling of being on a ocean bay....feeling the waves, smelling the salt air, feeling sand on your feet is remarkable. I love music that soothes and makes my spirit feels good. This album's combination of great musicianship, lyrics that speak to the heart and quality production gives me eargasms!!!

I could individually give accolades to each of the member of this musical band. Each special and talented, but I truly think the synergy of all of them together is what makes it unique and so enjoyable.

My favorite tracks are:

1) Dancing with the Rhythm of the Shore : Quirky in parts but made me smile :)

2) 6000 Friends: Amazing voice of Ms.Lorelei McBroom, the lyrics, the music ~~ just WOW

3) Fly Away: These words touch on a personal aspect of my life that was felt at the very deepest depths of my heart. It is hard to describe in words.

Special shout out to Colin Tench, as by discovering the music of Minstrel's Ghost, Bunchakeze, Corvus Stone and now Andy John Bradford's Oceans 5 has filled my life with great music, new friends and excellent radio webcasts. Colingirl gives you 5 stars :)

And kudo's to Sonia Moto ~~~ you rule as an artist and I am inspired by your work. <3
