REVIEW

Disc # 9 isn't a bad listen. It's mostly mellow tunes which is kind of surprising given the titles and subject matter. Of the 14 tracks on this CD, only # 6 stood out from the pack. It sounded similar to something you'd hear in a Hitchcock movie with music by Bernard Herrmann and was very dreamlike.
