Musical talent isn't the only ingredient that makes a recording work for the listener. If it were, there would be a lot of great music available for everyone to enjoy. In this case, Gregory Books shows that he has plenty of talent and potential. But on the whole, the music on this tape never comes together. It's choppy and erratic, and doesn't allow the listener to become involved with the music. The exception to this is the track "Cathedral Forest." It shows that he can put together a song that sounds good, draws in the listener, and still showcases his talent. Future releases from Gregory Books should be interesting. With more time and experience, combined with his obvious talent, he is destined to make an impact on the E-Music scene.
