Review excerpt from Music and Media Focus

Listeners who may be familiar with one of Craig’s most popular albums, Vostok, which has been described as “essential minimalism” and “the ultimate icescape,” will find a very different direction and temperature on his latest recording, The Heart Of The Soul, which he co-produced with Howard Givens. According to Craig: “It is the most personal and emotional album I've ever created. With its blend of atmospheric textures and romantic motifs, this is one of Craig’s most accessible recordings and it certainly has the potential to appeal to a wide audience.

The music grabbed me right from the start as track one opened with two bubbly pulsing analog synth sequences weaving in and out of each other in tempo, soon to be joined by a thumping bass drum providing a percussive anchor. The music shifts gears for a bit as the second track, “Sense Of Wonder” opens with an intro featuring a gentle piano melody for the first quarter of this eight minute piece, before swirling synthesizers swoop in lifting it into the stratosphere. Add to that, another great chugging analog sequence joining in about half way through providing forward motion.

The title track certainly lives up to its name, displaying both heart and soul as a lovely piano arpeggio becomes enveloped by a lush string section rising to an uplifting finale of heavenly choirs, all of which I found quite moving. One of the things I like most about Craig’s music is the way it evolves over the course of the composition, and the track “Lost In You” is a good example with its wistful piano intro that inevitably morphs into a more rhythmic midsection, with cool little sonic accents that punctuate the music, and echoed drum hits that reminded me a bit of Patrick O’Hearn, As a synthesist and electronic musician myself, I’m always interested to hear how others combine creativity and technology, and I honestly could not be more impressed with the masterpiece Craig Padilla has created with The Heart Of The Soul – a stunning release that marks a new chapter in a diverse and prolific recording career.
