Howie B - Folk

I'm not sure what to think about this album. Sonically, the first half is like an extension of trip - hop in the early nineties, and all songs are melodically great, not only great, but also potential hits (at least in my head :). Then, a complete change of mood, did something crashed in the meantime? Dark rhythms, ambient and industrial sounds,  and in the end moving to a cosmic perspective ... Who knows...
However, after I listened to the lyrics, It was a little bit clearer (although, not so much :), maybe is this the search for the elusive freedom and satisfaction during the earthly life, an ancient theme in modern suit. And, I wonder if this album is just an electronic imprint of an ordinary lifetime :)
