As many of you know from my own music I love the idea of ambient and emotionally engaging music, Dr. Fred Cole manages to deliver that with his instrumental "Mausoleum". Sparse yet beautifully arranged Mausoleum is so satisfying on so many levels. It starts out very minimal which really sets up the listener for an amazing musical odyssey. By the halfway point, the track picks up in "intensity" and continues to compel the listener in a most pleasing and interesting way. From a performance perspective, Dr. Fred Cole nails it. The track is subtly intricate while never losing sight of its humble beginnings. The cascading runs and sonically complex harmony never become extraneous or over-wrought, instead they continue to build in such a way that keeps the music metaphorically moving forward, in a word, I was riveted for nine and half minutes while never becoming bored, not an easy thing to do when your track is over nine minutes long. From a production perspective the recording is really well done, the piano maintains a very rich tonal quality without becoming tinny or brittle, I'd be interested in knowing whether this was a real piano with a mic or was part of a sample library, either way it matters not because the recording is mint and only adds to the overall ambience of the track. This is a stellar track with killer production and unparalleled compositional value. Perfect for any occasion when you just want a little introspective quiet time. Dr. Cole, I salute you sir, this track was amazing, thank you :) XXXChristopher CarrionXXX

more What makes a good music writer and composer, especially if the composition is an instrumental. One has to have the ability to musically take you somewhere, a musical landscape has to be created, you must be able to tell the story without the vocal contribution into the comp. Dr. Fred Cole has this gift to create compositions that does just this. When I listen to music I like to put on the headphones, close off the world, close my eyes, and let the music do its thing.
When I listened to "Forest", I found this comp. to be a very soothing,a smooth simplistic groove that takes you some where.
This is one of those songs that you download and keep on your phone to listen to when you just want to grove. Love this song. Dave Percell

more As soon as these first notes hit, I was dancing! That classic country sound is what I love the most about this track. The production is slick and raw along with those funky and fun lyrics. There are parts of the song where the beat just drops and it gives that track that nice edgy feel. I'm adoring those guitar solos!
You've got it! Keep on rocking!

I can hear this tunes being played in a country club with everyone up on the dance floor. I'm not really sure who the woman is that's singing but she seems to fit right in. Keep up the good work Larry.
