In the Wake of the Wind

David Arkenstone 4/2/1991
In the Wake of the Wind is a remarkable achievement, not just for the scope of its concept (this is a storytelling album) but for the depth and beauty of the music telling said story. David Arkenstone utilizes his writing talents to tell an interesting tale about a young man, Andolin, his travels across a wide and magical world, and the strange and captivating events that happen to him. The music is spellbinding, with keyboards, guitars, orchestral instruments, and percussion blended to create moods varying from introspection to excitement to passion. Arkenstone has chosen the songs well; having read the story, it's easy to visualize it coming to life as you listen to the music. The illustrated map detailing the young hero's journeys across the world is a nice touch, too. The strongest tracks are the cheerful "Papillon"; the introspective, stargazing "The Southern Cross"; the sea-tinged "Overture"; and "The Stardancer." Cinematic and wondrous, this is an excellent album. ~ Phil Carter
