David De Mourdant plays the guitar expertly and sings in hushed manner. He makes laid-back, literate prog rock. His music ebbs and flows pleasantly and has intriguing lyrics. "I Serve a new master now" is a lovely song with Noe Venable adding a great backing vocal. His guitar playing on this cinematic track is sensational. "High Like Heaven" sounds idyllic and has some mind-expanding words. "Cherry" starts with Angelique Borja's sweet voice and goes on to describe a world gone mad. The songs sounds like it strayed from "Dark Side of the Moon". "Black hearts wild" is calm, almost meditative even as DeMourdant sings of capturing the moment. "In the Wonderland" is heavier and has an almost Metallica-like mood. Just another proof of the artist's versatility.
