Album Review

Kip Winger has lived an interesting post-hair band, post-hitdom type of existence. In the wake of Winger's success (1988-1990) and eventual fall, Kip endured the death of his wife in a one-car accident in the mid-'90s and then eked out a humbler but more musically sophisticated life, doing a solo acoustic tour to support an early solo album and crafting ever more complicated compositions in his home studio, compositions that nodded to his interests in progressive rock and music of a more sweeping, symphonic nature. From the Moon to the Sun possesses many of these sweeping gestures, and Winger still hits vocal notes with operatic urgency, but there is also a focused, more mature bent in his music, which will nonetheless still be recognizable to fans of his more famous past work. "Every Story Told" certainly shows Winger's affinity for progressive rock, wieldy themes, and big compositions, with the singer providing numerous dramatic flourishes, but we can also see his songcraft evolving to something much more refined and complex. There is also a world-weary cast to much of this music that one would have never suspected from the leonine hair metaller of old. (A side note: he also re-formed Winger in the 2000s.) This is a fairly eclectic spread too, with pretty, ruminative ballads such as "Runaway" and "California" mixed in with driving rockers such as "Reason to Believe" and "Nothing." This is a well-crafted effort that defuses any would be punch-lines; Winger hasn't let his onetime status as pop-metal pinup stop him from making albums that show his deepening understanding of composition and arrangement.

Customer Reviews

musical genius!

Probably one of the most talented musical composers of the time. Kip doesn't recieve the attention and recognition he deserves. So much of his new music is radio ready, yet not picked up by the broadcasters. I've been a fan since "Sahara" and have thouroughly enjoyed the slow transformation of musical styles.

The Evolution Continues...

Kip Winger’s musical journey has been the road less traveled and he has put some significant distance between who he was and who he is as an artist. With that, there are two things you can say about his solo work; he doesn’t repeat himself and he’s evolving. As an accomplished musician, singer, songwriter, producer and composer, Kip is clearly focused on preserving the integrity of his music, crafting his legacy and delivering the unexpected. With this latest release ‘From the Moon to the Sun’, Kip continues to experiment with different genres and delivers intoxicating melodies, thoughtful lyrics and soaring vocals. Like his other solo cd’s ‘This Conversation Seems Like a Dream’ and ‘Songs From the Ocean Floor,’ Kip delivers unforgettable songs like “Every Story Told”, “Nothing”, and “Where Will You Go”; taps into self exploration with “Pages and Pages”, “What We Are”, “Why” and “Reason to Believe”; surprises with an accomplished classical piece “Ghosts”; and reflects on the angst of being a young mother searching for her place in the world with “Runaway”. Bottom-line, this is a whole new Kip Winger...enjoy.

From the Moon to the Sun, Kip Winger

Kip Winger, like McCartney and Chopin seems to have an infinite pool of beautiful, interesting, intense and sincere material to give to our ever narrowing music industry. It is clear from the first tune through the quiet, self-searching, head shaking moment, 3 minutes after the last track has finished, that this man's powerful talent has no bounds and he, no fear to express the maturing of both his musical vocabulary and his life experience. "From the Moon to the Sun" is a collection of poignant works, which although, apparently, boldly autobiographical, will at once find empathy and familiarity in the soul of anyone who lives, plays and loves hard. And as with all great art, the listener will will find him/herself saying, "woa, I have felt that, how can he speak my heart?"
