What art is supposed to be

Awhile back I did this disney college program, which placed me as a custodian at EPCOT center's future world. Among the buildings there, there was this obscure place called "Wonders of Life". All I knew about it was that it had closed a long time ago and would probably never reopen. On a whim one day, I snuck away and went to check it out. The building itself was beautiful, using colors and patterns I'd never seen, but what really got me was this song that was playing in the background, which I later found out was 'Celestial Soda Pop', by you. Although the building was off limits to the public, for some reason all the lights, videos, and equipment and music was kept running. One of my favorite ways to pass the time was street magic. I did alot of simply tricks for children in the park, my favorite being the Hummer Card. I started sneaking away a lot more to stand in the pavilion and practice my illusions when your song came on. I didn't know why, it just made me feel that much more magical, and thus improved my self-confidence. Towards the end of my career there, the pavilion opened for two weeks, before closing down for good and shutting off the lights and soundtrack. It was a very sad day for me, I felt like that place and your music had done me much good. I used to be very shy and introverted, and the idea of approaching unknown children to entertain them with toys and tricks seemed like something out of this world. You gave me confidence and seemed to imbue me with some sort of presence I'd never felt before. I don't think Disney gave me any magic, but you certainly did. That person I was is gone now, I don't know if he'll ever come back. But shortly after I returned home I did research until I found your name, and purchased Deep Breakfast, then No Blue Thing. To this day I still enjoy both. They put me in a tranquil place. I always wanted to write beautiful music like what you have done. And listening to your songs, I feel like I can do anything if I want it enough. Thank you.

Really great

No wonder this album won two Billboard Awards. The music vibrates, is happy and uplifting, and showcases what a fine composer and musician Ray Lynch is.

Toe Tappin'

My daughter turned me onto Ray Lynch and his unique music. "No Blue Thing" was the first of his albums I bought, and it has remained one of my favorites. The title song never fails to set my toes a-tappin' to its happy, lilting beat, and that is merely the beginning. "Homeward at Last" continues the free spirited tempo of "Blue" while "Here and Never Found" is almost symphonic in its mood. As with many of Mr. Lynch's compositions, those on this album are creatively crafted, ever changing and at times unexpected. The listener is in a state of anticipation, never sure what lies around the corner but always pleasantly surprised. The album concludes with "The True Spirit of Mom and Dad", a satisfying blend of quiet grandeur and playafully echoing strains all pulled together with a pleasing climax. Treat your senses by buying this album.
