5 stars An album that does not need lyrics to describe one's emotional experience. Its a love story filled with feelings of joy and disappointments wonderfully crafted with layers of orchestral arrangements, guitars and keyboards. When I first listened to this album rather casually, what made me stop and rewind was "The Truth will always be". I heard it again and again with a feeling that a someone was crawling out of a dark hole into a bright explosion of light (that's when the guitar explodes, actually). Then I go back and listen to the whole album again and again. Metheny's music does not necessarily have a straight forward structure, being mainly jazz in nature. But as you get to hear them repeatedly you get to know the avenues and you get to love his work. This album is however above average as it feels like a more personal and intimate expression. I highly recommend the album who's interested in a heartfelt musical adventure.
